( i thought that was what she was for..?) Anyways, so I called the number and they told me to have my TA call in... so by this time I was pizzed off.. so I sent a nice, but firm email to my TA.. letting her know what's going on... that i'm already getting a run-around and shouldnt be.. cuz we spent a crapload of money for this trip.
Next day my TA emailed me and let me know that we are booked for Nov. 18th (2 days after we arrive) and I got the 4pm spot.. which is what I wanted.
It is just the two of us going down.. eloping!! So we don't need any upgrades. We are getting the butler service, so that is plenty! I looked at their fancy floral packages, dinners etc. Which look lovely but totally expensive. $180 for a dozen roses?? wow. I'm bringing my own flowers down. How about you??
What are you sending for documentation? I have to get both or our birth certificates ($25.00 each) or its a cert. copy or something .. then get it notarized I guess. Does this sound right??
I'm so happy you got your stuff sorted out, dont take shit from any of those TA's make sure you get what you want and in a timely fashion !!!! If there not doing what you want Dump them... Thats what I did....
I also looked at there Preston Bailey pakages and i found them quite $$$$, so we decied to take our flowers down... We found a real cheap florist and she's making my boquet out of floramatique flowers... It only costed me like $90.... It works out cheap for us becuase my BMs are not carring flowers but silk fans instead....
I had to cancel my TA, she was real dummy... all she cared about was her cut of the pie... i wanted to
her a few times... So we just booked everything thru sandals direclty, its eaiser that way and theres no miss communcation.. We sent or documentation in about 1 mth ago. We got a invoice saying that our notarized birth certificates were fine and we didint need to send them anything else...
I called Sandals Negril yesterday and they told me that the sunset twilight package has been discontinted... I thank god we booked it back in June 2007.
I'm still kinda pissed because Sandals does not offer a welcome rep or anything, it kinda sucks because i would have loved to have a dinner the night we get there with all our guest....
