Send her your confirmation email and she will get you either a room upgrade, rainforest experience for 2, or a spa credit.

Great TR! How did you arrange with the hotel to eat your own food in their restaurant? Is that a common thing that people do? Do you need a "reservation"?
Hotel was the one who offered it to us when we arrived. We spoke to concierge to arrange. I believe there is a $25 charge. We weren't charged though for some reason. Does not have to be arranged in advance i believe, but is subject to seating availability in whichever restaurant you would like to eat. They have 3 restaurants in the resort.

Nice tr! $100 for a police bribe? Wasn't happy with $25?
I wasn't the driver so I didn't pay the bribe. I agree he overdid it. $25 would probably have worked just as well.

great trip report, thanks for sharing.
Of course it also reaffirms my fears of going to mexico, all the difficulty with food and constantly worrying about being ripped off
