IB Beach VS Suites


We previously stayed at the Grand but are returning with friends w/ kids. The price difference is $350 pp not mention the Beach is having a kids free promo. Is the price difference worth it. Is the food better at the he suites? Also is grey goose and jw black available at the beach?? What about beer options...

We just got back from the Beach and really enjoyed it. The lobby bar at the beach had premium brands though I didn't notice the specific brands - my husband just commented that he was surprised they had the top shelf brands there.

Red Stripe and Red stripe light are on tap everywhere but the lobby bar also had Heineken.

I'd be surprised if that kind of price difference is worth it but haven't been to the Suites!

The food quality will be the same at the Beach and Suites. The difference is that at the Beach you are allowed only 3 a la carte dinners per week and at the Suites you may have one every day.

There is no JW Black at the Beach (at least not when we were there); just Red.

Don't know if Grey Goose is at the Beach, but is in the Suites. Regular, Citron and one other flavor. We're here right now if you have any other questions.

The suites is a better resort. The liquor choices are more top shelve than the beaches. The food is also better. The beach isn't as crowded at the suites. Depends what your looking for. The beaches is entry level resort, the suites up a notch and the Grand top notch.
