SMB Tropical View Room

Hi everyone.

I am sure this question has been asked before. I did a search though the forums and couldn’t really find anything to answer my question however.

We are staying at SMB and booked a Tropical View room.

I see a lot of people talking about Partial Ocean View and Ocean View, but never Tropical View.

Does anybody know where these rooms are located on the property?

I looked on the website and unless they are booked out, this room type doesn’t seem to exist?

There was a fee to upgrade to a partial ocean view, ocean, so on and so forth.

Can anyone shed any light on this?

Thanks 

Tropical view means garden or forest view. Likely facing outside, since in-side would be swim-out or partial ocean view.

The buildings at SMB are set up in a kind of U-shape, with the open/top part of the U being the beach and the closed/bottom part of the U being the main building with restaurants (and some rooms). Then, at the top of the U, two buildings jut out on either side, like an upside down omega, and those are the ocean front preferred suites. However, there is another building outside of the U that directly faces the ocean, but may have an obscured view of the water due to trees. That may be what they mean by tropical view.

On a related note, are all of the room interiors the same layout?

Also does anyone know how the buildings are numbered? We have a swim out suite and would like one on the North side of the reosrt.
