    Questions & Answers
    Jessica F
    I have stayed previously in the past and have an existing reservation to return in December. This reservation was booked through RCI. I would like to extend the reservation and stay an additional four nights. There is no availability through RCI abut I am happy to book directly through the hotel as their website indicates plenty of availability across the board in various room types. My dilemma is that I have booked a one bedroom through RCI but there is nothing called a one bedroom on the website. I have called Barcelo directly but they just tell me that I can book the same room type and hopefully I will not have to move. I have explained that RCI's room types and Occidental's room types are expressed differently, I.e. RCI offers a hotel, studio and one bedroom whereas Occidental's are labeled as Deluxe, Junior Suite, etc. I have also tried calling the hotel directly. The first person I spoke with indicated that the thought that RCI had 'their own' rooms so to speak, but that she would transfer me to members services. During the transfer, I was disconnected and I have been unable to reach anyone that could answer this question: are the RCI rooms available to rent to the general public and, if so, what would an RCI One Bedroom translate to, so that I could have the same room type? Moving is not an issue;although, of course, we would rather not have to, the biggest issue is having a room that will accommodate our family and this unit is ideal. Any additional input or answers would be so much appreciated!
