    Ok thats what I thought...

    Karen, we are doing a mixture of rooms for all our different budgets...some of our friends just want the least expensive so they are going deluxe...others want the suites - we did about 1/2 and 1/2

      I also thought deluxe rooms were only in the old tower, but maybe not. Trying to figure out if we can request only the club tower & have a mix of deluxe rms & jr suites. What did you all do?
      hello karen would it be possible that you send me the contact details of Teresa? Thank you

        oh, and if you weren't planning on it, print every email and bring it with you. that way you have immediate proof of everything from menu choice to flowers.
        Good call Lauren! I've been messed around before, by a different resort in PV, when I didn't have e-mail proof of the upgrade.

        I will definitely be printing everything out and bringing it down, thanks for the heads up.

          my sister and friend stayed in the club tower with us, on the first floor, in a deluxe room. maybe it's changed.

            My TAs name is Jewell Ramos and she's been fantastic - you can find her contact info through WorldView Travel. I found her through Conde Nast - she is one of their recommended TAs for Mexico. She is an outside agent for WorldView and also has an agency she works for in PV itself. She was really diligent in pressing the hotel to lower their rates (they wanted to save our block of rooms at a rate that was higher than the current rate on their internet site!). And she is super responsive - she was working at midnight on Christmas Eve trying to secure our dates!

            We blocked a group of rooms (20) - half deluxe in the old tower (all of the deluxe are in the old tower) and half jr club suites with and without jacuzzi (all are in the new tower). We went conservative because we didn't want to get stuck with rooms but if we have to add some we will. People said they would be quick to reserve but that hasn't been the case, even with people who are definitely going, so that has been a little frustrating since we want to get a sense of whether we'll need more rooms. We had to put a small deposit down but it will eventually go towards our room.

            Anyway, we were told we would get the free room with the 20 rooms booked but it hasn't actually happened yet so we'll see! We're not budgeting betting on it since you never know (about our guests or the hotel - it was mentioned after so now that I think about it I don't have that written from the hotel, just my TA). I think it really does depend on the deal your TA was able to work out. Our room prices are a little higher than others I've seen, although they do include airport transfer and I haven't seen any around the time we are doing our wedding, just other months.

            Anyway, if you're looking for a TA, I highly recommend Jewell!
            We're married! Jamie

              Is anyone using Kristin from DD to do their wedding? I am but not communicating at all with the Dreams and not sure if I have too.

              BEst to everyone
              I just to ask who's your photog/ videographer?

                my photographer is joe cogliandro J. Cogliandro Photography Blog kind of showing off a little because our engagement photo is in the slide show on his main page of his blog:) joe is amazing, he does multiple days of shooting for one fee.

                Promovision is doing our video, I have heard nothing but great things about them.

                Good luck planning

                  Here's a link to all of the submitted photos to Trip Advisor-- there are several of the new suites, which are tough to find. As well as some really tasty shots of the food!

                  There are quite a few (to the tune of about 1800) so take your time. lol

                      I just had a friend to who got back from PV last week and I have seen a lot of people inquire about taxi service, she stayed at the DReams and got a taxi from the airport there were 3 of them and the total trip was $18.
                      Great price compared to what I was quoted by my TA and Dreams.
