Iberostar Rose Hall Brides - Post all info/questions here!

Recommended Posts

Hey girls,

 

I'm not 100% positive, but I'm pretty sure I am getting a free room for every 25 rooms booked or for every 22nd passenger, free cocktail hour for 25 + rooms, and free welcome party for 25 + rooms at the Grand. I told my TA about the other girl who posted on here about getting those freebies and she worked with the resort and apparently got these incentives for my group also. I'll have to double check with her but I'm almost certain that it's possible.

Susan,

 

What rate did your guest get? Just curious, when my TA tried to get something for free they wouldn't budge! She's actually pretty pissed and is thinking about not recommending Iberostar to anyone.  I have 48 people coming with all the rooms except two staying at the Grand.  You lucked out!

This is absolutely a possibility I had not considered.  I got a deal through a travel agent with some free incentives/upgrades if we book a certain number of rooms.  My contract states that if I book a certain number of rooms and/or guests (i.e. - 10 rooms, 21 guests) I will get certain free upgrades, cocktail hour on the day of the wedding and free room nights.  My travel agent had already given me a rate before I asked him to inquire about these incentives and the rate remained the same after he negotiated them into my room block agreement.  I like to think this is indicatitive of a good deal on my behalf, however, perhaps the travel agent already gets certain perks from the hotels to give to their couples for booking a certain number of rooms.

We're on the fence, on whether or not to pay that additional expense. The free upgrade to an ocean front room is only available upon request....which blows!

 

I too inquired how other brides are getting free cocktails and such. My WC at the Grand had no clue what I was talking about. When I mentioned it to my travel agent, she said that certain travel agents will figure out how much it would cost for a cocktail hour and add that to the rate. So, people don't even realize they're paying it. I mean if I knew I could have done that, I would have added another $30 per person to the room rate. *smiles* Who would have known besides, me and the travel agent.  A lesson learned! Good luck

Hey Tropical Love,

 

I'm one of th brides that posted about the incentives/upgrades/comp nights that my TA was able to negotiate for me.  My TA had actually quoted me a rate before I asked him about getting anything from the hotel.  The quote for Suites he gave me, double $718 per person for 4 nights (lowest grade room).  The dates are 7/4/12 - 7/8/12.  Perhaps my TA was able to negotiate something for me because I committed to booking a certain number of rooms (i.e. - I had to put down a deposit for a block of 20 rooms) so I'm basically promising the hotel a certain amount of money/number of guests.  I believe you mentioned having 48 guests at the Grand.  Surely that should qualify you for a free cocktail hour or a few comped nights at the very least.  I would have your TA contact the hotel once more expressing your displeasure at their lack of appreciation.  You brought them a lot of business!  Surely they can spare giving your guests some cocktails and apps by the pool (that they could get anyway on their own if they go to any separate food/beverage outlet) in appreciation for hosting such a special event at their property.  They CAN do something for you.

 

PM me if you want my TA's info.

That was my thought too, so I'm just going to pray for no rain.

Hmm... that's strange, how would you get moved into a restaurant if it rains that day? I would think there would be restaurant bookings, wedding, rehearsal dinner or other welcome party already booked.
