Grand Bahia Principe or Luxury Bouganville

Celebrating my boyfriends 50th birthday in October with his first trip to the Caribbean. Going with another couple. We are currently booked at Grand Bahia (October 21-28). Question... Pros/Cons to upgrading to the Luxury side? Is it worth the extra money? If we upgrade, should we handle it at the front desk upon arrival, or prior to our visit?

If you want a smaller more intimate hotel then bougainville all the way = this hotel is beautiful and the service is great and rooms have big balconies. It is big enough with 4 restaurants i believe. Grand Bahia Principe is much more for the lower budget believe it or not.

Luxury upgrade at bouganville i wouldnt say wouldnt be necessary but at Bahia Principe then definitely

I would definitely book it prior to arriving at the hotel so as to avoid disappointment. It is all dependant upon availability of rooms at the Luxury side. We are looking to book the Luxury soon, we have been to the Bahia Ambar 5 times and are considering somewhere else in the Bahia hotels.
