First time -- just booked!! And now with questions :)
We just booked our first trip to Couples for March 8-14 (secret rendezvous... I'm SO excited to find out where we're going!). I've been reading this site religiously for a few months, and now that we're planning the trip, I have a few questions that you can hopefully answer :)
- Anyone have thoughts, musings (or the inside scoop) on how SR works in high season when the resort sells out? i.e. do they set aside a number of the basic rooms for SR and then sell the remaining rooms... OR would they sell any and all rooms until the number of rooms available = number of SR ...? I'm curious because I noticed CN is already sold out when we're going, and most of the other resorts only have ocean view or bedroom suites available... so I'm crossing my fingers we'll get an upgrade (but I'm not holding my breath either lol)
- I only have one or two coverups at the moment, so I'm thinking about either getting more before I leave or getting them at a store in Jamaica. Does anyone know whether it's worth buying up here in Canada vs down in Jamaica? We're spending a few days "off resort" in Negril before coming to Couples, so I could easily hit up a non-resort store, if that would be the best price.
- Buying Jamaican Rum to bring home.... Where are the best prices? Off-resort store, resort gift shop, airport....?
- I plan to take the scuba refresher (I'm an "every two years" diver ;) I was wondering whether you can either book it ahead of time or even the same day you arrive, so you can do a regular dive the following day.
