  1. As guests at the sunrise section, will we have to purchase a day or night pass for the grand? If so can this be purchased from resort credits?

  2. Can you guarantee me that the new lobby, spa and all new restaraunts will be opened when I arrive on 5/20/17? I’m getting more and more concerned reading reviews/comments. It was scheduled to be opened last year then rescheduled for February 2017, now March 2017 and it’s still no where near being completed. I’m traveling with a group of eight and will not be happy to find out that it still won’t be completed in May .

  3. Hi
