I had all but decided on SMB for our next trip but the recent reviews regarding the 200+ corporate party taking over the resort leaves me worried. I'm curious about how the 2011 Trip Advisor winner for Romance would allow their guests to receive virtually no space nor quiet for romance while their corporate guests monopolize the pool, restaurants and night club.
It's made me wonder if people check on corporate bookings before making their own reservations? I hadn't thought of that before, but we are actually wide open each week of the month we plan to travel, so could choose really any dates. Would our travel agent be able to check with the resort about any corporate parties taking place during what dates? How far in advance do these events get booked?
Just curious what other people think and if there's a way to avoid the large groups. I'm planning on spending upwards of $4k for a week at SMB and I would be livid to be overrun in such a way while trying to have a special anniversary trip with my husband.
