    Hey guys... random question....when you reserved your date with the GSP/GRP, did they ask you to send a copy of both sides of your credit card and id? I sent the authorization letter with my credit card info, but I feel a bit unsure of sending the photo copies...that's a bit too much info to ANYBODY. What do you guys think?


    Also, just an FYI, I've been going back and forth with Sandra all week via email. I noticed her first response in English was clearly an email she had written in Spanish and used an online translator to send it in English. I figured to help her out, I had my fiance, (who speaks fluent Spanish), write the next email, and she immediately responded. So far, (although I have now become the middle man), she has written back within 24 hrs of each email. Just a bit of advice, if you have the resources, try to write your email in Spanish. Otherwise, if she's taking a bit longer to get back to you, its probably b/c she has to take a minute to translate, and try, (I know its hard!), to be patient. :)

    Good luck!

      Hello, I have booked my wedding at the GRP for Dec 2009. I also, had to copy my card, and yes I thought it was a bit excessive. I did through my TA and she didn't think there was anything to worry about. I haven't had any problems because and my TA has booked a few weddings with them in the past and no one has reported any issues.

        Hi Sunseeker,
        I'm also thinking of Dec 2009 (1st week) but have the wedding planning on hold due to the swine flu going around. Anyways, which week are you getting married? And do you mind sharing the cost of your trip and tour operator? I just want to make sure that the quote I received is reasonable ($1339 tax incl.). Also, if we are in the same week, do you have a photographer yet, maybe we can share one? Thanks.

          To those who have already visited there/had weddings. Did anyone happen to notice how "gluten free" the resort is? My FI's brother can't have it..Our TA has contacted the resort trying to find out what options they might have for him but we haven't heard back from her yet. Anyone have any ideas?

            Hello eeyore333, Sorry for the delayed reply. I really have to check this more frequently. We are getting married at the GRP on Dec 10/09, and from looking around this forum it looks there is a few of us. I found this a bit strange because when I booked the wedding in February, I was told they only do two a day, oh well. It is a big resort and I am sure they know what they can handle. As for the prices, our guests are paying $1546 tax included from Calgary through signature vacations. So the prices you were quoted seem really good, I imagine travel is cheaper from Toronto. As for the photographer, that is the one job I left to my fiancĀ©, so I am not sure what he has decided yet. I hope this helps, and looks like Dec 10th will be a big day for a few of us, happy planning.

              Hello Everyone,

              Can you guys help me choose an a-la-carte restaurant. Diana from GRP just sent me the list to choose from and I have no idea which is good. So far i heard the good ones are, La Hacienda and Le Fleur. Any advice would be appreciated.

              Thanks!

                Does anyone know about what the options are for flowers/center pieces/etc?

                  I originally had a wedding date booked and confirmed for November 18,2009 at 3:00pm Grand Sunset Princess. Sandra emailed me last week to inform me that our wedding date and time was double booked and I had to change my wedding date after my invitations had already been sent out. This isn't really that big of a deal seeing as how everyone will be there anyway. However I have sent her three emails to confirm a new wedding date for November 17, 2009 and she has not replied to any of them!! Has anyone else had trouble getting a hold of her this past week? I'm really starting to freak out!!!

                  It looks like our weddings were double booked. So we will be there the same week. The hotel never told me anything, but seeing your post I now know. What a coincidence I saw this. How terrible and frustrating that must be for you. I can understand how it happened though, their organization is terrible. Diana was e-mailing me and asking me for forms that I already sent in. Its been such a hassle dealing with them.

                  I e-mailed her this week to ask for photos of the private beach reception. It only took her 5 days to reply and she sent me the pictures. That's the quickest response time I have gotten since the wedding was booked. I'm hoping she is getting the hang of things now that she has been there a bit longer.

                    I was looking yesterday to see how much the prices have gone down since I booked in January and everything that's been going on. I was looking at yyztravel.com and selloffvacations.com

                    For the week of November 14th (toronto departure)... If you stay on the Grand Sunset Princess side and fly with Sunwing.. the price is around $1,000 taxes included. CHECK IT OUT!! :) When I went to the resort in February 2008, we paid almost $500 each more than that!!

                    We are locked in with Transat at almost $1,600 a person (swim-up), around $2,000 for my parents Platinum. We are kind of kicking ourselves in the butt right now.

                      If you tell me what variety of food those are I can tell you which is good! I loved the Fondue and the Mexican when I was there!
