I was just on Sandals website and saw that they are having a big sale at some of their resorts.

 

Has anyone been able to get a better deal on their group rooms block?

 

At first we were not going to book a suite with the buter but now that the rates have been reduced, we are going to upgrade our room.

A couple of things that may help!

 

1)Sandals has a same price policy- which means that no matter where you book ,the price will be the same. If an agency ( online or a travel agent) is caught discounting, Sandals will cut them off and may not honor any of the bookings. Which means that possibly your booking will be cancelled!

 

So you can find a TA who really knows Sandals and weddings, gives great customer service and feel easy that you will get the best pricing for the resort! It provides a great deal more power to the consumer!

 

2)Sandals also almost always has a sale of some sort- some are better than others but I find that this time of year typically has the best sale!

 

3)They also have changed things for wedding groups in the last few years.

 

Instead of providing a discount for the group block ( and also requiring deposits and penalties for the rooms unused) they are providing additional amenities for the group as a whole and for the bride & groom. Sandals / Beaches will provide a group code, the guests book with the TA whenever they are ready, in wjatever room category they prefer for how many nights they wish to travel and again- no deposit required from the bride & groom!

 

Truly it's the best of both worlds- the flexibility of booking individually with the perks of booking as a group.

 

 

 

This is from the wedding I just booked for 2009 ( keep in mind that the program amenities for 2008 was different)and reserved a group space for:

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
