We stayed here last July for our one year wedding anniversary and were upgraded to a Junior Suite. The resort is beautiful, but even better was the staff!!! We not only received a complimentary upgrade, but the manager (Roger Ploum?) sent us a gift basket full of goodies to our room as well!! They were amazing people! I have lots of pictures of the junior suite which I can add if anyone is interested The only downside is that we were there during a dance convention and the place was CRAZY crowded during the times between competitions.

First, congrats on the upgrade. We were upgraded to a junior suite in September for our 25th wedding anniversary and received a bouquet of flowers and other goodies.

Would love to see pictures...even though the rooms will all look different later this year.

The last I heard they've moved away from the Casitas and are working on the Ranchos (6A--which is almost complete). The only portion of Casitas done thus far is the 4th floor of Casitas 1, 2 and 3.

I'm so glad to know they are renovating the rooms! While we were there we commented on how outdated & somewhat dirty they were. I will try to post my pictures this weekend.

For those who weren't as blessed as KatMark and I, the junior suites are basically just 2 connected rooms. One is a normal room and the second is a room with a murphy bed, wicker (uncomfortable!) patio chairs, a desk and desk chair, and a 2nd armoire and tv (and of course the second bathroom.)

Be sure to go up to the resort photos thread for the CSR and you will see what the new rooms look like. They are stunning...and we can't wait to try them in September when we are back with our bounceback for free dining. Oh, and I liked the wicker chair...I was very comfy in it. (:

If you get the Cabanas, you will get a new room as all of the Cabanas rooms are completed. Good luck!

Haha, very true. We requested cabanas too, the new rooms look gorgeous. Here's to hoping

How long does it take for the packet to come? We paid off our trip last week. We have always done room only,but booked the 4/3 package this time, so I have no idea when to expect the travel documents. Thanks!
