1. Re: GBP golden club

We just returned from GBP on april 1 - golden club. We had a separate check in at the golden club lounge. I e-mailed before we went and asked to be in the newest building - 23000 rooms, because it's in a very quiet area. We were put in room 11408 - great direct ocean view, but close to the activity pool - very noisy. we were told we could change our rooms by wed (we got there on sunday), but we didn't want the hassle of re-packing. The rooms are basically the same - either a king or 2 doubles. They give you robes and slippers. We didn't use the room service, because we wanted it for coffee and juice early in the morning, and they didn't provide it ! I learned from reading all the posts here, not to stay in buildings near the lobby or entertainment area, -noisy. We were told that Golden club rooms are on higher floors - we were on the 4trh floor. When are you going? It's a very big resort - lots of walking and lots of people.

really enjoyed it, but she didn't know anything about the upgrade. We are going last week of April.

Enjoy your trip. Our daughter and family were there last April. Golden Club is with Air Transat.

We were in the Golden Club. Booked through Transat which got us checked in on the shuttle bus on the way to the resort, got the use of the Golden Club lounge with 4 computers for guest use, a free bottle of rum, our room was 11605 so we were just 2 floors up from arlmon almost straight up. had a great view of the pool and beach/ocean. building J would be the quietest but also the furthest from the restaurants and lobby. loved the resort and cant wait to go back.

I've read that most ppl get their room keys etc... on the bus to the resort. Does this always happen ? Or do you sometimes get all your stuff once you arrive at the resort in the club lounge ?I know this is typically for those who booked with Transat Holidays in which we have done for our trip that is fast approaching :)

We booked with Transat Holidays, but travelled with Canjet. We didn't get our room keys and dinner reservations on the bus. We went right to the Golden Club lounge when we arrived and got everything there. Don't forget to get 2 rooms keys - you have to keep one in at all times in a slot near the door if you want your A/C and fridge to work.

We booked with Transat, flew with Transat and were checked into our room on the bus to the resort. we did have to go to the check-in desk to get the key to the safe though
