I'll start :-) Although your comment really summed it all up!

What did you like best? Did you do any activities on or off the resort?

We leave in just over 9 weeks and I can't wait!

Service is what I liked best. You did not ever want for anything anywhere on the resort. It was also always with a smile. Room service was hot, quick, and great (I normally hate room service). Food in the AC's was very good (not great) and the buffet was above average but not very good. The beach is amazing as well.

We did a snorkel trip in PM with diving dogs not through the resort which was fantastic. We also ate twice in PM at Tacos.com which was also fantastic. $18 cab fair to PM and I love the town.

1. Did the timeshare sharks bug you a lot?

2. Did you by chance venture down the beach and see Captain Memo to go out snorkeling?

Bowling_Guru,

Never once did I see or get questioned by anyone for a timeshare. It was non-existant.

I did my snorkeling from PM with diving dog tours. I took a group of 60. They were great. Review of them comming soon too.

No timeshare people at SMB?? Hmmm....... thats not what Ive been seeing/hearing from others on TA lately. There is a thread about 130+ strong right now of people talking about the timeshare folks and the ultimate vacation club. Hopefully in 21 days I will be fortunate enough to not see them also :)

What room type did you have and building number? Do you reacll how much they were "offering" an upgrade for?

I was in building 15 room 1525. 2nd floor with a partial ocean view. The location was great.

I was part of huge group so we did not check in at the loby. They took us to a private check in area for our group. Maybe that is how we missed the time share people. I did not see them walking around though either. I was there for 5 nights and 6 days.

Hello!

Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions. I have two:

1. I am considering having my weddin there. Did you see any receptions going on while you were there?

2. I have heard that the pool area can be quite rowdy. Was there a lot of drunk, loud people by the pool or around the resort?

Thanks!!!

Sorry - forgot answer a couple things.

1525 is a standard jr suite. I was not offered an upgrade probably due to the group check in. Our rooms per pre-set and our packets were all ready without a check in person.

Cole-379,

We did see one wedding reception. It is off to the side from the pool. I do not think that you will be bothered. It was a nice area. My group ate there one night as well and they did a good job. It was rowdy but I am sorry to say my group was the cause. It was one of my clients awards trip and we took over the place. I felt bad for people looking for romance. If I was not part of the group it would have hurt my enjoyment.

Thanks for the quick reply. Glad to hear you had a good time! I wonder how rowdy and crazy it would be without a large group like that though.
