5. May I book additional nights if I wish to extend my stay?
Yes, please mention this when speaking with your booking representative. Additional nights are not included in the cost of your conference fee and will not receive the special discounted conference rate.

The special conference prices are applicable for up to three additional family members in the same room. Additional rooms or rooms accommodating families of five or more are not available at the discounted conference rate.

7. How much cash should I bring?
Since everything is included and tipping is simply not allowed, you will not need any cash while on property. The front desks will accept most major credit cards. They also accept traveler's checks. Upon check in, all guests will be asked to tender a credit card to activate their room folio. The purchase of optional services from the resort outlets will be done by signing all charges to the guest's room folio. Cash is not accepted at any of the revenue outlets.

However, if you are planning to travel off property for shopping and such, we recommend bringing some cash along as some vendors do not accept credit cards or traveler's checks. There are exchange bureaus at the resort. All of the islands accept US dollars, but please note that you may receive change in the local currency. Additionally, you may want to carry small bills to tip luggage attendants at the airport and airport transfer drivers outside of the resort.
