I am SO confused and thought that I had this locked in. I am waiting to send out my STD's for this- Ugh
I booked in January and at that time, if I booked 6 double occupancy rooms (a room with 2 ppl in it), I got that 6th room for free. That means that 10 people pay and 2 are free. They will give you a maximum of 3 free rooms which means you would need to book 36 people (or 18 double occupancy rooms) to get 3 of those rooms for free. In the end, I got 2 free rooms, and I will also be getting 1 free room upgrade. I was a room shy of a 3rd free room. Ah well. I can choose whether I want to give people free rooms or whether I want to split the free monetary value between my guests.
If you go to the Dreams Tulum website, there is a section entitled "Current Promotions", then "Dreams Gatherings, Getaways, and Groups". I showed this to my travel agent and I was entitled to everything except for the $200 worth of vouchers as the package I got through my travel provider didn't offer this. I thought that because it was a Dreams promotion, I was entitled to all of it but I guess it has something to do with your travel provider as well.
I think that the only person that can answer this clearly for you is your travel agent. Also, have you looked into booking with Wright Travel with Tammy, who is also the owner of this forum? I think that if I had known about her in the early stages, I would have looked into that. Her agency apparently has a great relationship with the Dreams Tulum and I think she's pretty familiar with all this stuff.
