    I love this panel! Staying at Beach Club Villas in February- heard lots of mixed advice on check-in time. What are the chances our villa will be ready earlier? What about requesting a specific room... any suggestions?

    Hi, Cathay!  The bottom line on check in time at the Beach Club Villas is 4 o'clock.  You may sometimes find that your villa is ready earlier than that, but I think it depends on how busy the resort has been the night before your arrival, and whether or not you have been very specific in requesting your room.  I know sometimes we've been very fortunate to arrive at 10 or so in the morning and had access to our villa, but other times, we are getting that text message right around 4 o'clock to let us know our villa is ready.

    I have never stayed in a bad room at the Beach Club Villas, so I don't have any specific recommendations for room requests.  I have seen in the Unofficial Guide that the views are sometimes better in odd numbered rooms, but we've been quite comfortable and very pleased in any room we've been assigned.

    Have a terrific vacation!
