    That is good news CWL.
    Thanks for sharing.

    I like to think my repeated bitching and whining to Don Diego and Patty had an effect
    Next, maybe they can move the full length mirror to a better location so I don' have to watch myself on the toilet.

    As for tips, we usually go for 4 nights. I go to the bank and get $100 or so in 2 dollar bills. I always tip at meals and take care of the bartenders and play makers. You'll figure out pretty quick that the service is top notch and the staff really appreciates that you're there. You don't have to tip and i doubt the service would be any different if you didn't, but they're working their ass of to make sure you have a good time and it shows... so i throw them a few bucks when i can.

    the $2 bills are a great idea. We usually tip whichever wait staff offers to get us our first drink when we select a bed right then because one never knows how the afternoon with play out. And we leave money for housekeeping in the room. How do you tip the playmakers.

    We have gone to DRM 5 times. The way to go is the Garden rooms. We really don't spend anytime in our rooms except sleeping and getting ready. We have had other room types and had the same experience. The standard Ocean view room is exactly the same size as the garden view rooms. The only windows on the rooms are the windows on the doors. The view of the ocean is blocked by trees and beds with canopy's. I think the suites are a little better, but for us, you save your money and get the garden rooms.
