I have never traveled all-inclusive, so I have several questions. I am booking flights and resort separately (through resort website and airline website). We have two groups, traveling on different dates, one hoping to stay at Grand Bahia Principe Bavaro and one at Grand Bahia Principe Esmerelda (more expensive). The Bavaro group is arriving first (April 29). 2 adults and 2 children. However, the other party (just one adult, grandma) is arriving on May 1. At this point in our stay, we would like to move 3 of the people from the Bavaro room to the Esmerelda Room (mainly so that the kids and grandma are closer to the beach). I have 2 questions:
1. Will be able to add/drop people from our reservation at the beginning of our stay and be compensated for it (or pay more if needed)?
2. Is access to Esmerelda rooms granted for people (staying at Bavaro) visiting relatives during the day?
Thanks in advance. It's just too expensive for the Bavaro party to pay for Esmerelda for the entire trip! I am confused by this scenario myself, so just ask for clarification if you think you can help, but do not understand what I am asking!
