we had a garden view room the last time we were there. It wasn't a great view, BUT it didn't ruin our vacation. we were happy with what we had and still had a wonderful time. We said as long as we were there, we would be happy, and we were fine. we wanted to have the money we saved on the room, for something else like airport transfers, souviners, drinks away from the resort, ect.... Hope you have a great time what ever you decide to do.
