    Hello! My significant other and I booked a honeymoon suite for April of next year which we are so excited for. I do have a few questions and concerns after reading many reviews that have caused my confusion. I read that some honeymoon suites are better than others depending on what room they put you in... is this true? I read room 3047 was the best but when I called to ask about it, the staff said it is an “imperial suite” although it’s listed as a “honeymoon suite” in reviews. Another question I have is are all of the restaurants in Sanctuary Town included in the all inclusive package? As well as the beers in the world bar there? Some reviewers mentioned paying extra for Coronas. Not sure why. And last, is it true that the restaurants rotate every day for when they will be open? I assumed every restaurant would be available to dine at daily. Hope to hear back.
