    I'm looking to book a room in April and super excited to finally see the new resort and party with the April crew!

    Last time I went I started off with a garden view room which was really dark and terrible for taking pics. I moved to a second floor balcony room over looking the quiet pool which was better but still not great.

    Which room would get the best daytime lighting on the balcony for taking pictures?
    It's especially important at TTR because you can't use cameras arround the resort!

    Depends if your a morning person or evening ,, sun rises on the right , facing the ocean in the morning .

    Get a camera with low light setting and large aperture . Don't use your phone , there great for daylight or close up flash , ,but suck inbetween

    Would TTR tower rooms be my best bet? I'm having a hard time understanding the map I found online and I can't upload it here because the file us too big

    The sun arches behind the resort ,, the resort face south for the most part,, so full sun rooms are few , but,, if your in the tower you will have access to the full sun roof top , with awesome views and good lighting ,, morning sunrise ss are great there too ,,beach area

    I know it’s a crap shoot on what you buy but looking in general, whats an average cost?

    There was a guy who was around the pool in October and don’t remember the guy or contact info.

    TIA

    Expect at least 200,, bring a media card,, and ask for origanals ,, photos don't travel well,, everything is negotiable in Mexico . We had one done in DR and glad we did ,, good memories
