When I booked my trip, the only room category left was a Garden Verandah Suite.
I went on the Romance Rewards and requested a corner room (even though I've read that doesn't really work and to make the request upon arrival, and if its available they will grant it.)
I guess I'll be using both "sides" just as much- one side of the resort for breakfast, lunch and the sports hut, and I will be using the other side of the resort for dinner, the swim up bar, etc.
Is there an area that I should request? From what I have read, these are in the building against the road. Is it better to be in the middle of the resort, or closer to one of the sides? Does a certain area have a better view than another?
