    hey andrea!!!! hope your doing well!
    As far as the generosity....these kids have earned this. instead of throwing a big graduation party we are doing this. I told the boys they would have to come up with airfare----work for it(made that very clear to the parents.....)want to teach them to budget their time with school, sports, and fun. these boys will have to have part time jobs in college so I figure its good training! then we will cover everything else.
    In reading we have eliminated surf club and Marriott properties. no smoking policy will kill hubby! lol he is not a heavy smoker but to have one or two here and there...so a balcony that he can smoke on is a must. lol gonna look into private homes too.

    the Radisson is great. We had our daughter's wedding there in October and a friend's wedding there in October. These are young kids (early 20's) and they LOVED the Radisson. Its a beautiful property, smack in the middle of the highrise. They did so many things including the groom going parachuting the day before the wedding (don't ask, we wanted to kill him, lol). I would definitely consider the Radisson

    I think you are doing a great thing, this trip will be better than any grad party could be! Good for you and the boys, they are blessed and its sounds like they are good kids who will appreciate it. I am not usually a proponent for all-inclusive, but have you thought about the Divi or Tam? I have only spent one night in the low rise section, but I always here about deals there. I know last year they had an amazing sale on black Friday.
    Not sure when, but we will be back
