Check out the resort map here. Isn't it just 535?

Check the legend. Itís every OWB on that side. Only reason 535 is a different color is because itís also a suite it seems.

How many people will be in the room? Do you feel you really need the suite?

I think we were recommending booking into a normal OWB room and then emailing to ask for a sunset view. Maybe even try asking for a suite!

Booked beach and got sunset.
I think it really depends on Status and availability.
Always praying for delayed baggage.

IMO just book a normal OWB and email them asking for what you want. Or you could email them prior to booking. Start with asking for sunset and maybe even just flat out ask for room 535 and see what they say. I would also tell them youíre considering other hotels.

Is it a new policy  or is there any reason I am not able to get aeroplan to piece together a MLE-AUH AUH-JFK or LAX flight on EY? Tried HUCA and all agents seem to have no reason why they can't piece it together but they say that when they chose one segment they are suddenly not able to see the other. Even when I book the segment they can't see and ask them to piece on the segment they can see as available that previously available segment disappears.
