I submitted 3 different resorts to get pricing and DT was the cheapest of the 3 (and by far the nicest!). I was ecstatic!
I also thought DT would be out of our price range and was shocked when I got the quotes back from our TA! I'm hoping our prices will drop a little bit before next May and we'll end up with a quote a little closer to yours!

Also we hired an outside photographer, Ivan Luckie, who was great and used the resort photog Rueben since it came with the package for a group photo session on the beach and we were more than impressed with the outcome. Can't wait to share my review coming up!
Congrats and welcome back!! I can't wait to see your pics and read your review!!

Yey!!! That is so awesome to hear!! Congrats can't wait to read the review and see pics! :)

We are using Christine, one of the BDW TA's, she's out of Regina. She's booked us with Sunwing and we put down our deposits. Our invites are getting mailed out on Monday since i screwed up printing the rsvp cards, was hoping to have them in the mail this weekend!
Here's the quote she gave us if we can get 10 ppl to book before Aug 27, which won't be a problem. What do you think of these rates? I thought they were ok, but i wouldn't want them to be any higher. I think they are at the highest point most ppl are willing to pay..
Dreams Tulum – in a Deluxe Garden Room – Sunwing Vacations – Valid until June 30th.

Departing February 19, 2011
-$1763 + $295 (taxes & fees) = $2063 per adult (1 week)
-$1393 + $295 = $1688 per child (ages 3-12) (1 week)
-$3088 + $295 = $3383 per adult (2 weeks)

Hey everyone! I've posted my review of our wedding experience at Dreams Tulum over in the review section. We had a wonderful time and made some beautiful memories. I tried to include as much detail as possible, and I also posted photos that I hope will be helpful. Please let me know if I can answer any questions for you!

violetvixen,

 

Question for ya- did you get a free room upgrade? My package comes with it, but I was worried that the resort maybe 90% full. They said that if the resort was 90% filled, you wouldn't be able to get your free upgaded room. I really want a big room, do you think I should upgrade now and just pay for it?

 

On my paperwork that I had to email two months prior- I wrote two dinner options. She emailed me back and didn't say anything about it. I was kinda being sneaky, lol. But, I have it in writing so they better give me the two options! Plus, I already had my dinner menus printed. I'll let you know what happens!

 

Sounds like you had a great time! Did you leave the resort at all? Congrautaltions to the new MR. and MRS.! I'm really happy for you guys!

We didn't get a free room upgrade. We didn't even ask, really. I think our upgrade option would have been to an "ocean front" suite, we had an "ocean View" suite and I think they're basically the same rooms. However, some of our guests were offered upgrades at assorted prices and I think some even got the upgrade for free. Those were people that had originally booked non-suites, though. and fyi, all of the rooms we saw, even the Hacienda rooms, were very spacious! What type of room have you booked for yourself?

Re: two entree options, I totally did the same sneaky thing as you with the email but was DENIED by Natalia once we were actually there. Maybe you'll have better luck. They will accommodate food allergies, btw. And vegetarians of course, with the famous veggie lasagna which is not really lasagna but a veggie cheese dish.

We did leave the resort a few times; once to go to Playa Del Carmen, once to see the Tulum ruins, once to go to the Coba ruins, and once to see Rio Secreto (this is a network of caverns & lakes which is totally underground, it's breathtakingly beautiful, I recommend it highly).
