Excellence junior suite ocean view

Has anyone stayed in this room? Is it worth it to upgrade from garden view? I read on the forum that these rooms are noisy (over restaurants and bars). Also if anyone can recommend a certain room.

Ocean view and Garden view are the same. Only the view changes. The only Ocean view rooms that look out over restaurants / bars are those in building 6, and part of building 7. The other part of building 7, as well as 8, 10, 11, and part of 14 are great. Part of 14 looks out over a flea market. 1, 2, and 3 have beautiful ocean views, particularly 3, in my opinion.

It's not worth the extra for me. I figure I'm looking at the ocean all day long. For me, the room is for sleeping, showering, and getting dressed.

My number one choice is anywhere in building 10, 2nd or 3rd floor. I like to be on the lazy river side. From building 10, it's a very short walk to the bridge across the lazy river. From there, it's 30 seconds or so to the Sol Bar and a towel / concierge hut with washrooms, in one direction, and the same in the other direction to the swim-up bar, breakfast at the Lobster House, and lunch at The Grill. And the beach is steps away. Building 8 would be my second choice. For the best view, I'd have to say building 3 Ocean view.

Thanks for the information! We booked a regular junior ocean view suite! Is it too soon to request a room in bldg 3 now (we are going in February). Just call the hotel and ask?

I give them my room requests when I book it. I also send an email to Roberto at publicrelations.xpc@excellence-resorts.com. You need to provide the confirmation number. It's probably best to do so a couple of weeks before you go.

A ton of cabbies are at the airport waiting to take you. Look for the beige or pink shirts. Hassle free. We went once with Gobecon and it was too chaotic to find the driver. Also, if you want a pre-arranged car, you can use IBK or have the resort handle this for you.

Why bother? Taxis are so easy and efficient. No pre-booking, and the quickest way to get to your resort.
