    Hoping someone can help us out here. We were looking to split our July trip into doing 4 days at Temptation and 3 days at DRM. Happened to look on the DRM site and it shows we could do three nights for $265/night. We aren't sure if this includes the all inclusive fee or if this price will include additional charges. We had looked at an exchange through RCI and with that option, the additional all inclusive fee is substantially higher than this price we see directly on the DRM site. Any help here is greatly appreciated.

    you must be leaving out information...because DRM is all inclusive. there is no option to stay there that's not all inclusive and there is no way you are getting a real $265 rate unless you are on some timeshare/premier website where you already paid a large fee to access a lower rate. $265 per person per night is closer to what the actual rate at DRM will be.

    When I select our dates, it shows when booking a garden room between June and July 31st, the regular rate is $295 and current special is $265/night.

    Thanks for the feedback. Seems too good To be true on pricing. Surely this is per couple and not per person.

    Ah, just a heads up to anyone who may see this and think it's a spectacular deal, turns out that the advertised price is per person. It is more cost effective to do a transfer and simply pay the all inclusive fee.

    We have gotten as low as $308 total but that was a couple years ago when they would have the buy 3 get the 4th free special they have from time to time plus applying a discount code of a certain % of on cheaptickets.com

    More typical is 4 something non peak and 5 something peak
