Hello

I think that I may be confused about where the club level rooms are located at GF.

I see that they have some in the main bldg. Are the other club level rooms located in Sugar Loaf Key?

Yes. You will either book a room in the Main Building or Outer building (Sugar Loaf) club level.

So now we all in at GF with a theme park view for first part of trip and GF Royal Palm for the end of the trip. So will be at GF the same time, I'm hoping we have lovely weather and some Christmas decorations ... It's our 10th or 11th stay and still excited!!
Do you want to join our November facebook group? It's a wonderful bunch of people and so many of us already feel like friends! Come on over! :-)

As abk96 posted, there is main building CL (Royal Palm Club) and outer building CL (Sugar Loaf). Just wanted to add that there are a few deluxe rooms in each CL and are a bookable category in RPC, but can only be requested in SL (not a bookable category in SL).

Many thanks!
As you said, there are many differing opinions on this. In my opinion, for what it is worth, if you truly do not care of your room requests, location, floor, etc - go ahead and do online check-in.

If there is a specific preference (yes to a daybed, certain view, floor, etc) you have, I have found it to be better to wait and check-in upon arrival so you get to talk to an actual human being.

Now of course, that has just been my experience.

Hey I just friended you too. I am planning a trip for my mom and I for November at gf in RPC or SL.

I have stayed in both so I think my mom will love RPC. She has only been on property once so I want it to be special.

My name is similar to trishadono so you should figure it out.

Thanks I saw a post somewhere that indicated that CL rooms were in all building, but I can not find the post now. Thanks a bunch for helping me.

Also, do I have this correct:
When we arrive at GF someone will take us to check in at a CL check in desk.

When do we get unload our bags from the car? Do I call bell services to assist us when we are ready?

We drive and I use a roof rack, so I will not be ready to "unpack" the rack asap. Sorry...I am trying to get an idea of what to expect.....CL is a bit intimidating to me....

You're welcome .

The main building is all CL (RPC) and SL is an outer building that is keyed entry, with all rooms being CL as well.

Someone from CL should be there to take you up to CL (if staying RPC) or to the SL building to check you in. Sometimes if the resort is busy, you will check in at the front desk, but that's only if things are very crazy and hectic with alot of people coming in. We usually arrive by a car service and just go in with our luggage to check in, but there should bellmen outside to help with your luggage.

Hope this helps and I hope you have a great time as the GF is an amazing resort .
