Vaca this happens at high seasons , and alot depends at whom who book with . What date in march are you going? And who did you book with. The resort is definalty worth the risk its a great resort im leaving to go there tommrow for my 7th time it becomes like a second home to you so it is worth the risk and the chances of being bumped hopefully will not happen to you it helps to email the resort about two weeks before arriving stating that you do not want to be bumped or move to any other resort. This place is a gem and you will love it.

@blondy, we've been there several times as well, I'll be interested in your thoughts after this trip. We are planning a return trip as well this year. I was very surprised after reading the review “After 15 times I don't think I will go back”. Please post your comments on your return. Thanks!

I have been there several times and have been asked, but not forced. If it was a bump for one night then hey why not try the sister property, but for the entire week I would say NO! Now I have seen in the past ( different managment) people refuseing and then they offfer a better property like RIU now I would take that bump.

This is nothing new with this resort. It goes on most years. Usually during peak travel season. Most people have no problems. Usually other than Jan-Mar this isn't much of an issue at all. And since you are on TA and know this practice goes on, you are ahead of the game. There are things you can do to help you avoid this from happening.

We are booked to go back later in the year so we're interested in hearing updates as well blondy.

I have stayed at RDMB three times and one of those times I was bumped to Holiday Inn, was not happy at all as it was a shock that they do this and getting there was not the problem, it was quick.

However, the room at HI was crappy and had no view of the ocean like at RDMB.

Once we got over the shock, it was fun seeing this hotel and beaches etc and we enjoyed it.

The next day the transport they sent for the ride back to the hotel was too small for all of us so we had to wait a long time for it to return, we finally booked a cab for ourselves and got there, checked in and had a wonderful time.

Booking with Apple helps to cut the odds of getting bumped way down.
