What type room to choose GHVS or GVS?
We have booked our very first Jamaica vacation for December 1 - 6th and really don't know which room type I should choose - the only 2 categories were Great House Verandah Suite OR Garden Veranda Suite. I picked the GHVS simply because I didn't know if it was going to be too long a walk to the beach if we were in the way back by the road (which is where the GVS's are, right?), or the 2 pictures of the GVS's confused me - one has a huge, tiled floored verandah (gorgeous) and the other pic had what looked like a simple balcony. The GVS was only $60 more for the whole stay. I have read a lot of the threads that GHVS is big and nice view and right up front and close to things, but in a more "hotel-like" building. But I cannot find any photos really of what the veranda of the GHVS looks like, and wonder if it is like a regular balcony or if we should change our reservation to the GVS and hope that it is one of the ones with the big tile verandah? Sorry for the long post - I tend to be overworried with silly details, but it's our first trip like this after 34 years of marriage. Got to stop overthinking! But if anyone has ideas or photos you can direct me to, I'd love it.
Never Mind!! Question Answered!
I spent the afternoon searching through the threads and my question is answered! The room that I fell in love with is the Garden Verandah Suite which is on a corner on the first floor - I understand that the ones on the corners have the pretty shutters behind the bed, and all of them I think have the dark wood on the verandah. I am thinking of switching to that from the Great House Verandah Suite since I think we would rather be farther away from the very front of the resort. And it's only $60 more for the whole package anyway. But like everyone has said, it really doesn't matter much, it's going to be incredible!
