    What is the best you have ever negotiated for an upgrade to Jacuzzi room.

    We plan on trying to upgrade there

    cheaper to do it on line when you book, the rooms are far a way from the party zone at the other end of the resort by the Geriatric pool .

    Took $50 a night one trip.
    Took $107 a night for drops of love package which included jacuzzi room in april

    Both of those are much cheaper than what I could get in advance online when originally booking.

    They seem to have raised/ doubled their upgrade charge for the Jaccuzi rooms for next April. Hope that changes

    When we checked in mid-July they offered us a jacuzzi upgrade at $100/night. Then they lowered it to $50, but wouldn't go any lower.

    Looking back, I wish we'd have taken it. (the time we spent in friends jacuzzi was worth many times $50,

    $250 for 6 nights. I don't think I would do it again. We only used the
    Jacuzzi twice.

    We have upgraded all but our first two times there. Using the jacuzzi or not, the first floor room makes it so much easy to stumble into after a long nite of partying.. lol. Also, we try to get one near the quiet pool bar to make it easier getting a late afternoon drink!

    The first time we were offered it at $50 a night, passed on it, and somehow ended up with an amazing jacuzzi suite for $0. Unfortunately we haven't been that lucky on our other trips...

    If you'd use it, $50 doesn't sound unreasonable...but we've stayed in plenty of resorts where a jacuzzi is in every room and never even filled it up. We are pretty much only in the room to sleep and shower. We've got a hot tub on our deck at home, so maybe there's just no novelty to having one on vacation.

    Upgrade prices have changed in the last month, I don't know if this still applies.\

    might be cheaper at the front desk now ????

    I think it could be worth 50 a night but not any more. As far as price goes probably depends on the occupancy of the resort. I've been looking for next June and boy have prices gone up! Not sure what's going on there.

    So do you upgrade when you get there or can you do it now? We get there on the 26th.

    This time of year I would do it when you get there. I think you arrive enough before Halloween where hopefully there is still availability. We seem to get lower offers on site than in advance. But once I did upgrade in advance as I knew the hotel was sold out (late April / early may). Good luck. A lot of it is luck with timing.
