  1. Thanks for the assist....was just curious if any other options were out there that were known disney properties since you guys seem to be able to identify them so accurately for Orlando- The price wasn't the issue, it was great, and I booked ii...It was Coronado springs, and a fantastic value using your coupon- Thanks again-
  2. Thank you, Did you see any other known disney properties? I may try coronado, hopefully that's what it is, I will post any results and use your links/coupon if I do! Thanks again-
  3. 3.5 star Orlando, Bonnet Creek Aug 17th-Aug 21st $76 per night (from 176) no resort fee noted Free breakfastFree InternetFree parking Amenities Business centerFitness centerPet friendlyPool(s)Restaurant(s)Smoke-free rooms Looking to stay as conveniently to Disney as possible close to this rate, being on ANY Disney property would be a HUGE plus- I didn't see any 3.5 stars in this zone with free breakfast, etc- Will use your links, thanks!
  4. Tried bidding on montego bay and Ocho rejected at 135, 145 at 4 and 3.5 star levels (express was still around 170)..no offer to bid again immediately. Booking directly with apple vacations on something they call "square deal" which is a different opaque booking option. Resort and transfers included in price, guaranteed to be five apple rating (this leaves only two options, RIU Montego or RIU Ocho Rios, if previous bookings are any indication). This option is the same price as winning a priceline bid at the attempts I made, but does include transfers, so going with it instead- Thanks for the guidance, much appreciated!
  5. Thanks, so you think it would be a safe bet that they would include all inclusive privileges for two? The suggested price for a hotel in that zone is $100 for a 3* Express deals shows 3* in this zone for $162 all inclusive I strongly suspect this is the RIU in ocho rius, with a list price of 226 for double occupancy any suggestions on where to start with bidding? Thanks again, I'm on a limited time frame since we fly out Sat so it's either this or booking the apple square deal (hotel revealed after purchase there too, but it's either RIU mbj or RIU ocho, 178/nt OTD using that channel))
  6. I've used priceline a lot, but never for all inclusive. Looking at staying in Ocho Rios jamaica very soon, 11/8/14-11/15 They have a PRICELINE EXPRESS deal for 161 for an ocho rios oceanfront all inclusive, 3*, pretty sure this is the RIU...and pretty sure I can get the same property cheaper through other channels. My question is with NYOP, it lists the areas, but Ocho rios area is described as all inclusive, oceanfront.....does this mean every hotel in this area will be all inclusive for double occupancy? The only guaranteed amenity listed is a restaurant, and no mention of all inclusive, other than the area, and it doesn't say all inclusive for 2....just leery about this, as it says average price is only 100.....would love to snag this hotel for 125-135/night, although my guess is that's unlikely given the express deal pricing- Thanks for any help or guidance- thinking about scrapping the trip entirely since the weather forecast looks rough (and with southwest flights I can cancel w/ no penalty)
  7. I ended up not chancing it and stayed on hotel points (Best western plus condado) and Radisson Ambassador
  8. Thanks, used the tool and came up with this for the 1st listing,3* Condado now 92.00 FULL AMENITIES: Free Internet, Near Beach, Casino, Smoke Free Rooms, Fitness Center, Pool(s), Restaurant(s), Business Center, Internet access and the second listing is showing 85.00 now, 2.5* Condado FULL AMENITIES: Free Parking, Free Breakfast, Free Internet, Near Beach, Restaurant(s), Internet access, Accessible for the blind, Accessible path of travel, In-room accessibility, Accessible bathroom, Roll-in shower
  9. Sorry for the delay- I did end up using PRICELINE for this night (flight was delayed and only got a few hours in the hotel!) I bid 5* 11/17/12-11/18/12 and got the Renaissance Barcelona Hotel, bid was $130
  10. Tried to match these up with no luck, leaving soon, staying jan 19th-20th Condado area 3* $93, showing 173 crossed out trip advisor 3.5/5 75% recommend Free internet near beach casino smoke free fitness center pool restaurant business center 2.5* - condado 87/125 crossed out trip advisor 3.5 Free parking free breakfast free internet near beach restaurant any help greatly appreciated, i'm currently booked at radisson for 2 nights on points (38k for 2 nights) and would cancel if I can get something similar close to $100/night-
  11. Thanks! I could live with the Best Western, but looks like that expo hotel may not be in ramblas south, I may go the priceline route since I can't figure it out, thanks! will post results/use links
  12. Trying to ID hotel w/ no luck 4*, Barcelona, Ramblas South, trip advisor 3.5, $88, Nov. 17-18th, No amenities listed? There is another 4* Ramblas North for 89, 3.0 out of trip advisor, can't figure that one either but would probably rather stay south- Already clicked through PRICELINE/HOTWIRE links when searching, will use the buy links if I figure something out- Thanks!
  13. Got my directions messed up, yes bid OQE, -Les Halles Starting bidding at 100 in this zone only as we decided we only wanted to stay in this area (probably cheaper if we bid other zones), bid incrementally, rejected at 121, accepted at 122
