Royal Islander Cancun room assignments

Hi,
We have never exchanged out of Marriott before. Our first time will be going to Royal Islander in Cancun. We have two units. One is a two bedroom and the other is the 1 bedroom which includes the full kitchen. Interval shows the unit number on the exchange confirmation. Should I trust those numbers? I know from Marriott exchanges that even if it says ocean front you are not guaranteed an ocean front and more likely to get ocean side. I found a map showing the unit numbers and our location but don't want to get excited just yet. Thank you.

You will get what is on the exchange. We got full on oceanfront when we used a free getaway to stay there. :)

Because the Royals are fixed week ownership, you should get the unit named in the confirmation. The reason i say "should" is that I believe there is a disclaimer in the confirmation stating that unit numbers are not guaranteed. I have stayed at the Royal Haciendas 3X and my sister at other Royals 2X and we always got the unit designated on our confirmations.

We did not get our assigned unit, but we traded in on an Accommodation Certificate. We still had a fabulous Ocean Front Room, but just not the same one as assigned. We loved it there. Enjoy your time!

We are going on a Getaway also, but we don't have a room assignment on our Confirmation Certificate. How did you find out?
