    Hey Chris and Sue,

    We haven't booked yet, but the plan is to return the 18th thru 25th. Just gotta keep looking for the best deal.

    Bob and Tracy,

    Sounds great. I'm good with the room rates and air fare now. If you book before April 24, you get the 7th night free. And the air fare now is significantly less than I paid last year.

    Are you the Canadian couple we hung out with this last January?

    Chris,

    Nope, we aren't the Canadians. We spent most of our time around the pool. Prices I'm finding now are quite a bit higher than we paid last year, so we'll keep looking.

    Come on folks,

    We need some SSB folks to be making reservations for Mid January 2014. It's a great time to go; low humidity, usually sunny but not too hot or burn too bad, and the folks then are great. We played pool volleyball and beer pong l almost every day the last two years. So far, us, and Keith/Ginger, and Bill/Mary, and Mike/Annette, and three other couples they are bringing. Let's get a party started !!!

    Ya Mon.

    That Wednesday deal was awesome! I made sure to publicize that special on Facebook so my friends could take advantage of it.

    Bob and Tracy, it's great to hear you'll be back again next year! Only 232 more days for us!

    Poor Ed and Holly. I think we may just have to go for the whole month just to make sure they aren't lonely.

    Hey Keith,

    It'll be great to catch up with everyone again. It sounds like they're planning some changes with the hot tub and pool at SSB. Let the countdown begin!

    Sue,

    Check out the 'New hot tub at SSB' thread on the A/N board. Randymon confirmed that there will be a new hot tub going in. There are other changes to the pool being discussed, but nothing definite.

    Keith,

    There is another Wednesday Couples special coming up on June 27. Give me some advice. Since I am already booked, can I take advantage of it? The last one was worth about $1500 in savings. Do I rebook and then cancel my original reservation? Should I call a rep or can it all be done on the website.

    Hi Chris - How do you know there is a special for January 2014 coming on June 27th (26th?) If there is a special you maybe able to re-book. Did you book through a travel agent or Couples? Did you buy insurance? Some travel companies have lowest price guarantee insurance, some do not. Some have restrictions such as the trip has to be the same dates, room category etc. You also will lose the $300 early booking resort credits but the last special was too good to pass up. We already get repeat guest credits!

    Chris, I think it depends on where you booked. If you booked through an agent, call the agent and they can do it all for you; some of my other friends did that. Since I booked directly through the website, I called the 800 number and they helped me. Basically they had me email them with my booking number and say "please change my reservation to the Wednesday special". No need to re-book or cancel anything.

    Sue and Keith,

    I did book directly thru Couples. I did buy the trip insurance. I called Couples and they told me the next Wednesday Special is 27June. I'll check the next special and make a decision and call Couples directly.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    Ya Mon! You're in luck!

    We made friends with some Brits last time, but they said they can't make it this January, so you can have their spots!
