Just got word that the EDM Overwater Palafitos suite category opening date has been set forward a couple of months to Sept. 2016. This change occurred because the resort is making changes to the palafitos’ floor plan in order to make the lounge and bedrooms larger than the first one’s which have been completed and shown to travel agents. They are also planning on putting in a spa and restaurant specifically for guests staying in this room category as well.
Since I am planning on ATTEMPTING to book this room once it becomes available, I have found a travel website which offers me a chance to be notified as soon as the rooms officially become available for booking. You can join this same list! Check out this link if you are interested as well; if you follow the link you will also find a slideshow of palafitos’ construction in addition to three videos–take a look!
