We got an all in deal for $1575 per person. (deal? not sure...hahhaha, but it was the lowest price we had come across)....
I don't know where else they might be looking, but a lot of people think if they wait last minute they can get it cheaper...I don't know how else to respond but to tell them how often the hotel sells out! I took the risk of putting down the deposit for my peace of mind, I will be OK if we lose a couple hundred.
The legal ceremony is sounding more and more like a pain in the butt....and with more thought, the idea of getting married here sounds like it won't take away from the day...that was what I was worried about.
I assumed whomever was officiating our wedding would have an accent, but its sounding like the judges that do the legal are harder to understand then the ministers? hmmmmmmmm......

Plus it worked out quite well for us. My mother has been ill for many years and is bed-ridden. So she got to attend my "wedding". We had a judge come to the nursing home and he married us in front of my mom. So even though she couldn't attend my Mexico wedding, so was there for my legal one!
Not to be nosy, but what rate did you get? And is it for the room only, or a package deal (ie. flight/transfer and hotel)? We had some people tell us they would wait, do it on their own, and then they realized our rate was far better. Also they should know that there is only ONE company that can sell access to the Sensatori property from Canada (other than booking through the hotel directly which would be really expensive). Sunwing still has exclusive rights to that hotel. Let your guests know you have arranged a group rate and it's a confirmed room....if they wait to long they might miss out.
Good luck! I know how frustrating it can be. We lost some of our deposit because guests flew in from other cities than we had planned for....but in the end all of our guests got a rate they were really happy with.
The Bonfire is on the actual hotel website, under Family (I think?). We were just not happy with the times they offered...who wants to make smores at 6pm???? At the resort they offered 7-9pm, but I thought it was still too early. They will set up the bonfire down on the beach, I think there was 2 locations offered, but not entirely sure anymore.
