After LOTS of very appreciated help from this board (thank you!!), our current leaning is towards Banana Beach, and my latest questions are about the room we'd be staying in.
I've read here that the older building's ocean-front rooms are the best, but pending the answers you provide here, I'm hoping that the cheapest rooms, in the newer building, may suit us well enough.
We'd be in a balcony or veranda room, not a suite (no kitchen). I found the picture that Marty posted back in 2002, showing the row of angled balconies along a side of the newer building.
--Does anyone know if these are only the suites, or whether the cheapest rooms are also along this side?
--Are the balconies big enough for two people to sit out on?
--What's to the side of the balconies -- are you very close to another building, or does it feel pretty open and pleasant to sit out there?
If anyone has pictures showing more of the outside, inside, or view from the new building, I'd love to see them. Barbara K, you mentioned back in 2002 you had some -- is it too much to hope for that you'd still have track of them? And CMNate, if you're still around, you too?
Thanks again -- you are all so helpful and it's making my planning feel super-informed!
