    Yes you will definitely have to buy him a day pass. From all of the posts on here, you might also get suckered into paying the $200 "loss of sales" fee since the hotel isn't making any money from your photographer staying there. I'm not sure whether that makes you more of a target, but it's something to keep in mind!

      Is that really legal for the resort to make you pay a fee for a service w/ the photoshop that I don't have a contract with? It just seems very idiotic to me to simply give away 200 bucks b/c the photographers there are not cooperating based on logic... [sorry just real pissed that this may be an issue]

          Has this happened to other photographers?

          Seeing as how the bride who hired Robin had full clearance ahead of time to bring an outside photographer and things still went crazy, I would think it would be a good idea to bring the incident to the wedding planners attention. Letting them know that you know of incidents like that carry a lot more weight than just asking the basic question. Know what I mean?

              Very helpful post ladies. I friend of mine wanted to get married there and was going to do a site visit while in JA for my wedding. I think she has now changed her mind reading this plus having 80% of the wedding party staying at the hotel. Too many policies! With Iberostar Rose Hall Suites you just have to get a usual Day pass or wedding pass for photog or extra guest
