We did Beachfront - Atrium next
Simply...Beachfront is nice, yes. We won't do it again though. :) You don't need the minibar. You're hardly in your room for one and the little 'drink huts' are literally steps away from either of these rooms... so you just have them make you a nice fresh drink and then mosey over to your veranda. We did pay premium for beachfront...they are nice, very busy during the day with foot traffic, as well though. We're hoping to go this May and we'll book an Atrium because we didn't utilize the mini-bar (hardly at all and we're lushes!) and because those hammocks looked like heaven. Plus they are just a bit more set back. And only by about 25 feet! Those atrium suites are crazy-close to the beachfront suites...so you're not missing out on that much.
My advice is...get an Atrium and stay another night instead. Just my humble opinion, though.
