    I heard the higher rate was for a renovated unit.

    Several people have written on another site that they were recently contacted by Trop. They state that Trop. recently discovered that the rate that was advertised as $29.00 per night was a mistake. Many people booked at this rate. Trop. is contacting these people and charging them a higher rate, if they want to keep their reservations. This is happening to people who booked through the site, getaroom. I think that there were a few that rented through jet blue also.

    You will have a blast Andrea. We took our little man when he was 2.5 for the first time and he loved every second of the trip. Our best investment for him was the full body swim suit that was spf 50- we purchased 2 of them. Be prepared for LONG naps, the heat really took the energy out of my little man and he slept 3 hours daily for his nap, unlike at home.

    We booked the $29 a night rate through Southwest. We have not been contacted yet.
    I don't think that the rate was a mistake. When we were on the island in March we stopped at the reservation office and verified our quote. At that time we were offered a guaranteed renovated room for an additional $25 a night, which was still a bargain.

    Same - booked thru SW & called Trop - confirmed price is good, unless I wanted to upgrade to a renovated room.


    Andrea - I'm so excited for you! I do hope that they are coming with in the beginning part of your trip. How awesome to have that time with those you love more than anything in the place you love so much

    Then I hope you relax a ton during the first part to prepare. Where are you going to vacation after they leave? ;-)

    Please don't do what I did a few years ago - spent almost my whole first week excited in anticipation of my nieces from Germany & SsIL from CA coming that I kinda blew the week!
