Can spa services be charged to your room? Thank you!

Higher rate includes resort credit, lower rates do not. That being said, you may consider changing your booking if the resort credits are important to you. You may still be saving money in the end...
February 1st, 2010, 12:29 PM
Does this apply only when booking directly with Couples or does going thru a TA also work?
February 1st, 2010, 12:31 PM
Thanks Randy. We're actually better off keeping our current reservation.
February 1st, 2010, 12:32 PM
backsoon - either way is fine.
February 1st, 2010, 01:01 PM
Does this mean that you won't be offering any specials for 2010 travel?
February 1st, 2010, 01:46 PM
This is awesome. Does the credit apply towards anything at the resort including your total booking cost? When would the $500 be applied to your stay?
February 1st, 2010, 01:50 PM
When I enter my dates it says no rates available.
February 1st, 2010, 02:37 PM
what about rates on the Verandah suites at CSA??? are those as posted or lower as well???
February 1st, 2010, 05:31 PM
My travel agent said the garden verandah suites were not included. We would have to book an oceanview to get the credit. So this doesn't help me at all.
February 1st, 2010, 07:23 PM
The information your agent provided is incorrect. We have not restricted the resort credits to any particular room category. If your agent is from U.S. or Canada,please ask him/her to call us at 800 COUPLES or 954 416 1280.

So if I am reading this right Randymon...the price is what it is, the $500 is a credit to be used at the resort (ie spa treatments, wine, etc?) and the only upgrades for CSA are: Reserve Atrium Suite at Garden Suite Rates
Reserve Great House Verandah Suite at Atrium Suite Rates only? Do the upgrades apply to any other suites? Just curious. Thanks!
February 1st, 2010, 08:32 PM
For instance, would I book the Premier Ocean and know that the price reflected is the Deluxe Ocean rate? Or do I book the Deluxe Ocean and know I will get a Premier Ocean room?
Sorry for this question, but I'm just a teeny bit confused.
It might have something to do with the fact that I will be there in 8 MORE DAYS! YAY! Sun_princess
February 1st, 2010, 10:26 PM
Thanks. After checking into it myself, I see I am eligible for the credit an the rate is about the same. I will get her to call tomorrow.

You guys are too much.
We have five months till our June trip and you got us thinking about 2011 already.
It is too much for my little pea brain to comprehend.
I need to count the quarters in my vacation jar.
February 2nd, 2010, 08:50 AM
EinWI and Sun_Princess: The upgrades at CSA are available from the minimum two categories only. Yes, you book the higher category and pay the lower rate.
February 2nd, 2010, 12:57 PM
And this is the quote from my travel agent today ...
From here in the U.K. -
He drew up a booking for me dated 1st February (yesterday) for hopefully our next trip in February 2011 and this is what he has just e mailed me ....
I have spoken with Head office this morning and this promotion is only for the US market, the rates they offer are 30% more than the rates we use for your booking, the only way to get the below offer is to book on the Higher rates offered to the US market.
........ this makes me sad
Randy - can you confirm this statement please - many thanks.
February 2nd, 2010, 12:59 PM
I was able to change my booked trip for CSA for $11 more and now I get the $500 credit. Can the credit be applied towards an upgrade at check in if available?
February 2nd, 2010, 02:54 PM
Changed my existing booking today. Saved money and got the credit. Sweet.
February 2nd, 2010, 04:38 PM
Yes, the credit may be used to pay for the upgrade charge.
February 2nd, 2010, 06:39 PM
Quick question Randy.....before we book, I need to know what date with the anniversary party for CTI be on in 2011? Will it be on the 15th of January? Or the 22nd?
February 2nd, 2010, 08:24 PM
We have May. 2010 and December 2010 booked already. Now we will be booking December 2011, Just have to decide on how many days!
February 2nd, 2010, 08:37 PM
Can you charge excursions (zip line) to your room? Wasn't sure what you can use the $500 towards.
February 3rd, 2010, 07:02 AM
We booked 9 nights at CSA - April 8-17, 2011 - before the price increase back in December. Price - 3348.00
I just priced out the same reservation with the new prices. Price - 4428.00
I think we'll skip the upgrade and the credit this time.
