Children can attend the wedding but the reception has to be indoors or the children have to leave right after the cerempony and a coupel of pics! I look forward to assisting with your honeymoon!

So we've decided to get married at Iberostar Suites (since I have children) in Montego Bay. The reviews, TA and forums on here have all solidified my decision. I'm so excited. Not trying to chnage your mind but just so that you
  3. Your welcome- sorry I didn't have additional details but when I do I'll let you know!
  4. An Internet hotel booking company in Tampa has filed for bankruptcy protection to stop room suppliers from canceling customer reservations. Irish-owned 1800Hotels has a dispute over debts it owes to several companies for hotel rooms it resells to travelers online. On Sunday, 1800Hotels learned that two suppliers, Gullivers Travel Associates and Tourico Holidays, had canceled as many as 3,600 reservations. On Wednesday, Bankruptcy Court Judge Caryl Delano agreed to a temporary restraining order prohibiting suppliers from canceling reservations after the company's Chapter 11 bankru
  5. I just had clients come back from their wedding / honeymoon at Sandals Antigua- they absolutely LOVED it! Which side depends on what appeals to you the most as the two sides are quite different- one is the original section of the resort- very lush, Caribbean feel, tends to be quiet and tranquil and some of the suites are fairly close to the water ! The Med side is very modern, sits back from the ocean (there is a huge pool between the suites and the ocean) and can be a little more active! Feel free to contact me if you need additional help!
  6. The TA's on facebook are just regular TA's- no different than any other Certified Sandals Specialist nor do they have any special insider knowledge that any other Ta wouldn't have access to. The staus level of Gold, Silver, or Platinum Sandals agent just reflects how many bookings they have had over the course of the last 15 years or so. Personally I am a Platinum agent but it is more of a designation within Sandals so I do not use it to advertise my services. Basically ANY TA can get on the Sandals Facebook page and answer questions-I haven't as I am busy enough here. It is likely that

I stand corrected and I apologize-not sure where my head was at with that one! With everything included I've just left it in my safe as I've only used it once in all the times I've been to the resorts over the years-for batteries! The item you use for onsite purchases is small like a credit card with light lamination ( so that it doesn't get wrecked if it gets wet!) and paper thin. When you check in you prese

I know that typically rennovations are done in the fall during the slower months but it apperas that this may be a really large project soooooo it's hard to say whenther they will be taking out entire room blocks at a time or just doing a floor at a time!
  9. Hi Kimberly, There are alot of differences between all of the properties that you mentioned regarding rooms, food, beach & service! It would be impossible due to the amount of time it would take to do a full comparision and exploring the differences and why Beaches is priced where it is ! But to provide a quick over view - the price differences reflect both quality of the food & beverages, included amenities and convienance - such as not having to make reservations for dinner at an a la carte restaurant each morning or having to tip at each bar & restaurant!

So we booked the Govener's 1 Bedroom Honeymoon Suite (one night free with this catagory) for $6954. You WILL love this suite though- having the extra room to get rea
  11. The key card is also what they use to make purchases, makes it easy as they don't have to juggle a bunch of items! For day pass guests for any purchases they will need to either placea cash deposit with teh front desk or use a credit card-the credit card is easier and faster! Sandals & Beaches are wristband free! Once you are on property you have full access to all bars & restaurants!
  12. Sandals is estimating that the OTW bugalows won't be ready for at least a year and a half to two years so unfortunately it won't work for next May . Islandbride- The two resorts are like night & day! Sandals Grande Ocho Rios is far more active and vibrant and attracts peopel of all ages. It tends to be a bit more casual. Sandals Royal Caribbean tends to be much quieter, catering to couples that are more to themselves and older. It's not stuffy but definately more reserved.

(And I've had to do a little public speaking myself, so I know that crazy-shaky feeling all too well; you just prayed no one noticed, right? I just hold the glass with both hands, drink from it like a toddler, and hope not to spill any on myself
  14. Glad to help! The OTW bungalows are scheduled for Sandals Grande St. Lucian! Sandals is also in talks about having them at Sandals Royal Caribbean in Jamaica! Those, if approved, will still several years out!
  15. Ok and now- the OTHER BIG NEWS! Sandals / Beaches are going to build a brand new Beaches, similiar in layout to the Italian Village at Beaches Turks and Caicos right next to Sandals Whitehouse in Jamaica! This is still about a year and half out or so before they break ground but will be amazing and offer so much to that area! PLUS they are adding a golf course for the guests of the resort !
