I have an upcoming stay at the beach club in August. I’ve gone twice with the kids, once 2&4, next trip 5&7
First trip (BC) we had a high floor with balcony. It was nice for watching HS fireworks after the kids fell asleep. Seemed like we spent a lot of time taking elevators and walking halls because we were over Cape Mays. Touring plans lists it as a 7 minute walk to the room from the lobby but it seemed longer when we were tired.
Second trip I asked for another high floor room but ended up with a ground floor room (Poly). I was surprised by how nice it was not to wait for elevators and how much time we saved when we had to run between the pool and the room. We spent little non-sleep time in the room on that trip. Not sure we would have used a balcony even if we had one.
This trip the boys are just short of 8 & 10. I was leaning towards asking for a ground floor room, because it seemed to save time. Yet for some reason I think that in the back of my mind, asking for a high floor room helps my chances of a club upgrade.
We are sound sleepers. Noise doesn’t bather us.
What do your guys ask for?
- Ask for a ground floor
- Ask for a top floor
- Getting the right building or location in the building is more important that the floor
