You can certainly request an early check-in. Whether it will be granted is up to the accommodation.
Contact the condo. Opinions aren't going to provide you with an answer to your question.
I certainly think you should be able to request it. Whether they can honor it is another story. Much depends on the how busy the place is but condos generally do not work like hotels. On most islands the flights come in in the mornings and leave in the afternoon/evenings. The venues have to organized maid staff, laundry, etc. Those individuals have other units to care for as well as preparing those for incoming guests. If they are taking care of existing guests first, they have to wait to ensure your unit is ready. If it is a busy turnover day they might not be able to make the arrangements even if the unit was empty the day before as someone will go in that day to do a final check. During the quiet time of the year, staff go on vacation, so while it might look like a no brainer, that may not be the case. You can always try, but honestly if they say no it should be no surprise. Everyone is trying to do the same thing and even at the hotels your request for early arrival (just like late departure) may not be doable.
I've stayed at all 3 and have gotten in to each of them prior to 4pm. Our flights usually arrive between 12:30-1:30pm and we head directly to the condo from airport. Once at Caribbean Club we were allowed to sit in another condo until ours was ready and since I arrived with a major headache it was a welcome offer.
Obviously I will contact the resort. I was looking to get a quick idea of if it will be possible via forum experiences at the specific resorts. Thanks for the responses.
