PRDO Holguin - upgrading room at resort?

We just booked a little 4 night getaway at Paradisus Rio de Oro in Holguin for October 15. We booked the standard junior suite. Has anyone upgraded their room once at the resort? Was it worth it? How much per night did you pay to upgrade?

We really like the bungalows and the outdoor shower. So for us it really is worth the additional costs.

I find often the upgrade costs can be lower directly from Canada but they also have deals at the resort…but typically the Cdn charter companies do an amazing job in getting deals as part of the packages.

Based on personal experience on booking the suite at Breezes Jibacoa, and following Canuks comments, it should be cheaper to book the higher category through your tour operator that at most resorts.  They get basically bulk discounts resulting in better rates.  Only makes sense or everyone would be booking directly with resorts and skipping tour operators.  So, unless you get a free upgrade, my guess is you will pay more to upgrade at the resort.

Thanks to both of you for the info & feedback.

Soooo worth the upgrade!
