What is the best way to go about sending room requests to my resort? Phone call, email, fax? How many days prior to check in should I do this? We have never bothered to do this before, and have been happy with our rooms. This time, however, will be our first time staying at a value (Pop). I have read about noise issues near the pools, and would prefer to be away from the noise if possible. The issue is, we are a grand gathering with 3 rooms, and we booked preferred, which I understand a lot of the preferred rooms are poolside. Should I bother with trying make a request? If so, how should I word it? Thanks!
