I have the Hilton reserved for 5 nights. I check prices every few days to see if they drop - they have gone up! I am glad I booked when I did so that should settle that. Nope! I also browse the other hotels and found that the Playa Linda has opened up for the same dates. Much cheaper. It would be great to save money but, I don't want to save if I am giving up anything. This is our first trip in a long time. We are viewing it as the tester trip. Keep things convenient and then sort out what we like and plan the next based on this experience.
There is a Playa Linda disclaimer that we may have to change our room during the stay. I won't find that out until we get there. With a 5 night stay and 5 people's stuff, that feels like a potential hassle.
If I had to say one thing that has me concerned about the Hilton, it would be the beach. I picture bobbing, weaving and stiff arming my way to the ocean.
This is the downside of shopping around even after reservations are made. Does anyone have any thoughts on these two resorts?
I envy everyone that has their "home" and no longer has to wonder! Does anyone still price shop, hotel compare, etc. right to the very end?
