    Hi Ty,
    You are exactly like me! For our first trip I selected the beachfront suite, but then changed my mind and upgraded to a penthouse suite. I'm so glad I did!!!! We got the Steve McQueen Suite on our first trip, D-14, and it was amazing!!!! It has a huge walk in shower and a large balcony with a cushioned sofa, coffee table, two loungers and a table that has 4 chairs. The balcony overlooks the main beach and lawn. On our other 3 trips we have also booked Penthouse Suites and stayed in the Roger Moore Suite, D-20 (next door neighbor to the Steve McQueen Suite), the Frangi Pani Suite E-12, and the Pavoratti Suite C-8. All have been wonderful, but I will say that the E block penthouses have smaller balconies but have awesome views out to sea over the Mineral Pool. They also can be a bit noisier since they are close to the Balloon Bar. We have trip number 5 booked for July and can't wait to find out what penthouse we will get this time!

    I will tell you though, that since there are only 11 penthouse suites, they tend to sell out fairly quickly. If you want to upgrade, I would do it now, so you won't be disappointed when you check in.

    Have a great trip!

    Beachfront is close to the lawn and has easy access to the beaches. The rooms are in the newest part of the property, and all have nice ocean views. They are very nice and the best views are from the second and third floors in A Block.

    As far as the Penthouses, they are ALL nice. That's why they are Penthouses. They are older, larger, and have a lot of character. Each is unique. We love all of them in Blocks D and E. The only one we did not care for (because of the lack of balcony) was the Pavoriotti suite in Block C.

    We loved our penthouse BECAUSE it was a bit further away from everything. We loved the walk! Our balcony was amazing and that's where we spent all of our time when in our room. We were in D-21, Angela Bassett.
