    Hi I was wondering if someone could clarify if the Caribbean Souls Deluxe Package is free with 30 double rooms booked? I saw it on a website, then when Elena sent me the info, she did not have that on there? I just need to verify, as we know how long it takes for her to get back to us :)

      was it a non cat website? i saw that on some site too & they said they didn't do it.

      it can take a long time to hear back from elena. she is super busy. they take better care of you when your date gets closer. That's why I started this thread so we could exchange info here & not need to wait to get infrom from elena as much.

      all of the hotel WCs are slow to reply. when you get there in person you can see why.

        Having only just booked our holiday / wedding from the UK this is my first post so apologies if this is not in the right place!
        I have read through numerous postings on this hotel but wanted to know if anyone had actually used the hotels recommended/own photographer or if there are any links to them of weddings at the actual hotel.
        Any help or advice anyone can offer will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

          there is a link to the website on one of the first pages of this thread. I wouldn't recommend them. I don't like whats on their website & you never know who they are sending to your wedding.

          Look around here & you'll find many better options.

            Thanks for your quick response Morgan. Hmmmmm clicked on the link and not that impressed. I have time yet to look around but obviously want to choose the best I can afford. I dont know if anyone knows the answer if the hotel charges for an outside photographer to enter their grounds or only restrict you to photographers they have a prior arrangement with?

              the hotel doesn't charge you to have vendors in. my photographer was staying at the hotel, but my videographer came in just for the ceremony.

                Hey Ladies, Just got back Saturday the 6th from my amazing wedding and honeymoon (switched resorts) and the Cat was fantastic. We wished we stayed there for our 2nd week

                Everything went smoothly and no mishaps throughout the week. I Will be posing pics as soon as we get them from our photographer. Can't wait to go back next year.

                  I have decided on the Cat and am very excited, just finished reading through the whole thread! I am waiting to hear back from my TA so we can try and proceed.
                  I will be going in May 2011 and I am hoping to get a date nailed down as soon as possible so I can send out the Save the Dates! Plus I am just so excited! All of your pics are just gorgeous! Excited to hear from lgregorash!!

                    I agree!! We got married there 2 weeks ago and Elena was nothing but wonderful as we arrived there. She was always check in with us and she does focus on brides that are close to their dates! Just be patient... I know it's hard but she will do an excellent job for you!

                    Mischaka - You will be very pleased with the CAT!!! It is affordable, beautiful and the staff are tremendous. We felt like royalty every moment!!! Happy Planning!

                    joesietoms - I was urged not to use the hotel photographer because he was not very good. I booked with Ivan Luckie. Search his name in the search bar and you will find some reviews on him. He was great!

                    Claire - I talked to a few of your family members... I was trying to get in touch with you before we left. I hope you wedding was a success. Can't wait to see pics!

                    *hugs*

                      Hi ladies! We leave Wednesday for our wedding at the CAT, we can't wait! Question for you brides that have done a private reception how did you guys set up your payment? I'm trying to avoid using debit cards as I don't want to pay the 3% international fee.

                      We also are using Ivan Luckie so I'm happy to hear that he was pleasant.
