Split Vacation -- CSA and CTI
We're considering planning a vacation for August to Couples after a disappointing time 2 years ago. We stayed at CN (the last of the four resorts for us to visit), when I got medical tests back at home, that turned out to be an emergency (torn carotid artery). After the hospital trying to get contact info (eventually from my mother in law), the hospital called the resort on Sunday and on Wednesday, and NO ONE bothered to find us or get a message to our room to tell me to call home. Luckily it all worked out (found out by accident when checking for resort credits at front desk on Thursday) -- I am OK and did not stroke, but needless to say we were very disappointed in the lack of accountability with finding us or with managements response (or lack thereof). Luckily though, we're now able to travel. We tried a different place last summer but would now like to go back for a big birthday for me in August.
My question is really about doing a split vacation. My husband's birthday is August 6th and mine is August 9th. We've been there before for his and ATI parties on the beach leading up to his birthday (and Jamaican independence day) are a little loud. So, we're considering doing a split for August 3 to the 7th at CTI (avoid the holiday .. lol), and August 8 to 11th at Swept Away. We were wondering:
1. does anyone who might have done it recently have an idea on how long the transfer would take
2. do you just let them know when you register (or remind them) that you're on a split vacation and when you want to transfer
and 3. do you think it's too quick to do four and four?
Thanks for any input and looking forward to being able to travel again. :-)
