    My wife, sister, and I are staying at Caribbean Beach this March with our 5 month old daughter. Orginally I booked a value resort but decided to upgrade. Now I am wondering if I should book 2 rooms at a value resort instead of 1at Caribbean Beach.

    There are pros and cons to each arrangement, however my personal preference would be to have two rooms. I find that with a group of non-married adults (for example you and your sister) it is often very helpful if there are two separate sleeping areas. Adults tend to be very set in their ways with sleeping habits. What if your sister wants to turn in early? What if you want to stay up late watching TV? And having the baby in mix complicates matters even more. Will your sister be disturbed by the inevitable need for middle of the night changing or feeding? Also, bathroom conflicts are common with multiple adults in the room. Who showers first? Where do people undress, etc.

    There are some advantages to staying at moderate resort over a value (more restaurant choices, more recreation), but for me, the additional personal space gained by having two rooms would far outweigh those additional amenities.
