My boyfriend and I went to Beaches in October 2002. We do not have children and are in our mid 30's. The resort was empty and we had an awesome time. At the time, the travel industry was suffering due to 9/11.
Our memories of Beaches are fabulous and really want to stay there again. We stayed in the French Quarter were that section was pretty much brand new. We are just concerned that the resort will be really crowded and full of children. Although I was thinking since it is in October shouldn't all the kids be in school? Has anyone been there during October over the last couple of years?
Several of the Beaches reviews are very critical and I can't believe it is the same place. How could it go downhill that fast?
I have also been researching RWI and have noticed that everyone loves the place. It looks beautiful. My only concern is that we have to actually leave the property in search of food. We liked the convenience of Beaches were we could get anything at anytime. The whole idea of having to go to the IGA and make our own meals doesn't seem like a vacation.
What does everyone recommend? Thanks for your help. We are really having a tough time deciding what to do.
