I am the SWMBO, the "Mary" in "Mary and Scott".(ChooChoo,I always get a kick out of you when I read it on the board cause Scott has called me that for years!)We were in AC last Sept and are coming back this fall.Bottom line is,it all depends on you and what you want out of your vacation. We don't snorkel,tour or dive, we just go to veg,eat,sun,swim and read.For us, it makes more sense to put more money into a place with a pool,air-conditioning( It have to be cool at night when I sleep or during the day if we cook), stove and fridge. We would go into town and get some great food from Celi's Deli,or Papi's Diner and take it back to the Seven Seas and chow down.However,the SS's was only air-conditioned in the bedroom, and when we cooked in the kitchen it did get uncomfortable.So, we are looking into Paradise Villas for our next stay this fall. Lots of people who dive,tour and snorkel would rather put their money into these interests rather than having the other extras.I would discuss between you what you want to do on your vacation,look over the lodging section of the board, and ask for input from the great folks on the AC board! Whatever you decide, you will have a wonderful time.
