I could use some help from Grand Mayan veterans.
My family and I (wife and daughter) are quasi-booked at the GM in November. The deal is that some friends bought a time-share week from relatives. Due to a scheduling mix up, they were offered an extra room as a concession for changing their plans. They ended up with a 2 bedroom, master suite and a one bedroom "apartment." So we bought one of the rooms. My concern is that we are not ( as of now) guests of record. And...we arrive about six hours before our friends. I am hoping that we can make some arrangement to be recognized by the property and check in (if it is possible aound noon) Any other pitfalls I am not considering? Some advice would be welcomed.
Now the easy part, I note that cab fares are quoted in dollars or pesos but there doesn't seem to be a distrintion as to how many people...so are the fares per person or per ride?
Lastly, and thank you if you have read this far, is there a problem at the GM taking a cooler with ones own beverages to the beach//pool? I've read conflicting reports in the posts. There is something happily decadent about hauling the folding canvas cooler filled with ice and drinks and not have to do much more than roll over to get a cold one.
So thanks in advance for your advice and input.
