            Because it's a rip and that's how all the all inclusive resorts do it... Is the short and sweet of it! It would be advised if you didn't fax/email them all your information regarding reserving a date; to negotiate with them before you start booking and reserving rooms. (we did all the negotiating before booking or reserving a date and there was some wiggle room because they wanted our business). But from the sounds of it you already booked rooms so that is out of the question. Basically, they have you by the gonads and there isn't to much for negotiating now that everything is booked. You can however look into outside vendors for more economical pricing and better quality (I recommend this and we did this and we loved the results). Wish I had a better answer for you...

              I've been trying to figure this out and you all seem to be much more helpful than my TA or resort WC so maybe you can help!
              We are wanting to get married at the Iberostar grand, we met with someone at the hotel while we were there and she said kids could come to the wedding and to the reception but only if we rented out La Brisa and had the wedding on the beach. Has anyone done this? I seem to hear from everyone that they told them NO kids so I'm confused!

              Hi Gemma,

              Can guests who are not staying at the Grand Paraiso attend the wedding?

              They will be staying at the Lindo or the Maya.

              Can children attend the wedding?

              What would the cost be for both children and adults?

              Thank you

              Claudia Augustson


              The iberostar changes rules all the time so if they told you this get it in writting and hold them to it (they will oblige as long as you have it in writting). We had our reception at la brisa and loved loved loved it (you can see la brisa in our pics)! (this was during swine flu and closing of del mar which all our stuff was originally planned at so we had it at la brisa since we were paying for private reception anyways; therefore they allowed kids for ours at grand.) However, remember if your guests are not staying at the grand you will be paying a daypass charge for them to come to wedding at the grand (i think it's $50-100 per person)!!! Also, I believe a plate per person at la brisa is 12 yrs and older $50. Which really isn't mentioned upfront so please keep this in mind. As long as you haven't booked anything or reserved a date with them yet (by sending them credit card and personal information) there is always always always room for negotiating!!! You will be surprised on the discounts you may recieve if you play it as "well do you want my business and all my guests or not because I am also talking with the ____ resort and they will do this for me". See if they can waive the daypass charges this is a riducoulous charge anyways!

                Ladies,
                Does anyone know if we need to get what our guests want to eat before we arrive and if we are going to need assigned seating so that they get what they ordered. I am not sure about this. We are renting out the Tropical for four hours. I have heard that it is now a italian restaurant. Does anyone know what the menu looks like or if the food is good?

                  We are getting married at the Paraiso Del Mar ~ We ordered our invitations from Apryl's Designs and they turned out great!! They include your invitation on the front and pictures/info on the Iberostar resort on the reverse. If anyone wants to see them just email me at derekandkyla@hotmail.com and I'd be happy to share them. For our Monograms we went thru IDoOriginals - super inexpensive. We created a wedding website on Weddingwindow.com and its so good to include travel information for guests as we found we were responding to the same questions over and over.

                  Our ceremony is at the gazebo and we are renting the restaurant for a 4 hour private reception. Did anyone else go this route that has pictures to share?
