ROYAL PLAYA DEL CARMEN BRIDES: were kids allowed for the day? ...and other questions

Recommended Posts

Thanks Stephaie that's great! I'd like to give the option of all 3 - espeically with an economy like this and we have a variety of people going, I'd like to have all options!

 

It looks like on the map they are all 3 right next to each other! Yay!!!

How far is the Real? Just talked to the travel agent today and she offered no signs of price relief for January. I still don't understand the huge jump in price. It's f@cking frustrating, pardon my french.

When I looked before, it seems to be just a few blocks away. Walking distance.

 

I sure hope when my prices come out that they are better... I'm not holding my breath.

 

I curse like a sailor- no offense taken here wink.gif

I just cannot get a straight explanation why the prices are higher? What is driving this? The prices are so low right now because of the SF, do they expect a surge in the New Year?

 

For those that booked in the past, is their a one time price match option if the price goes down? Like shorting a stock?

What prices are you guys getting? Maybe try this site? Home

 

I don't know if I can post it or not but I found cheaper hotel rates on here as opposed to the hotels site!

 

Mods just delete if I shouldn't have it there!

EmenGeeRoxx....I feel your frustration as well. I think all the resorts are hoping the high season will remain high in 2010. I almost believe that it's not worth it for guests to do early booking to be promised the guaranteed group rate. Perhaps if they wait a little longer, they can find a dirt cheap option. Their site even boasts $35.84 USD for last min deal to The Royal!!! That should be a question I ask the WC during my site visit. I'll be going down July 21-23. Any requests for pictures??

Loanmao- That really sweet of you. I'm curious about the "beach" reception sites. I know what the ballroom, gazebo and garden look like but appearently there are like 3 beach site choices? I would like to see what those choices are. Like does one really suck because its more in the public walkway area to the beach, is one more "private" because its further down the beach... KWIM?

 

Otherwise I'll think about any other questions I might have but I don't want to bother you with all that. If you happen to get the pictures great.

 

I have to say, you are lucky to be able to swing a site visit, I wish I could. I guess what I would ask is when you are there if there is anything you observe or learn that makes you think to yourself "Gosh I'm glad I came for my site visit because I wouldn't have know that and now that I do I am changing my mind about this option, etc"

 

does that make sense?

I am from Canada so all our pricing includes hotel and flight. As of this morning I was getting $2000+ CAD taxes and transfers included for the Gran Porto Real. Last year it was $1300. The Royal pricing was not out yet this morning so I was assuming it would be at least $500 more. Anyway I just checked the different sites and the pricing has gone down for all the resorts in Mexico for January! The pricing is similar to 2009 so I am very happy. Hoor-f@ckin-ray!!! Pardon my portuguese!

That is great news! Emengeeroxx, how long have your prices been out? Maybe that will give me an idea of how long I may have to wait for our prices to drop once ours come out....

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
