Beach Question, Need Opinions...

We are scheduled for the Golden Crown on Dec. 10th. Obviously, there will be no such thing as a beach. We are still excited about going but, bummed about the missing beach.

Therefore, how difficult would it be to walk to another beach or take a shuttle. I hear some resorts still have beaches. Any thoughts?

Mamastorey - What does RCI do when you have lost your exchange or points week- Do you get your week back or do they try to get you elsewhere-probably unlikely?

Thanks for the response robyxoxo. I'll let you know if the stairs are gone if I security will let me check it out. I'll be in Cancun next Thursday. I can't believe I have less than a week after planning this trip for over a year!

I was told last week by the staff at the Crown Paradise that the two hotels are no longer affiliated. This means no shuttles, no sharing AI privilages, etc.

MISSMOUSE, thanks so much. I'll be looking forward to hearing about your trip when you return. I am a huge fan of the snorkeling area behind club med and consider it to be a real hidden gem as compared to the more touted snorkeling areas such as Cozumel, Xcaret, Garrafon. I'm sure you will find lots of shells if nothing else. I heard the beaches were covered with them after Wilma.
