    Sorry don't have my pics yet,  I'm hoping by the end of the month or early next month.

      And now to you and all the other ladies that have contemplated... Beach or Suites?? Need your help in deciding, what made you all choose one over the other?

      Thanks!


      LOL, no, November 2011 actually :)  I know most people seem to be booking way early, but we got quotes as soon as prices came out, and it seemed high.  I'm holding on to the hope that waiting longer will pay off.  We plan to book in July.  There's so much family stuff going on right now, it's a bit crazy for all of our family as well.

       

      As for deciding between the Beach and Suites - We originally booked the Suites, but then it started to look like most of our guests will be on a tighter budget and the price point of the Beach would be better.  So we figured we might as well move the wedding to the Beach, no sense in having 80% of our guests move over for the day of the wedding ($30 day pass fee).  If you think your guests will be able to afford it, then go with the Suites - more choices of restaurants, nicer rooms, etc.  But honestly, I think the Beach is nice enough.

      I booked the trip around April. I can't remember what I was quoted for the Beach but for the Suites I was quote $1550 tax included, double occupancy, all inclusive out of Toronto from Saturday to Saturday. I believe the early booking bonus was around $250/ person... The price for a single room was a couple hundred more. Guests have to put down a $200 deposit now and then remainder is due in October. I had to search like crazy to get these prices!


      How did you get your quotes?  Online, in person, travel agents?  We've gotten quotes from 3 different places, and I've asked one of those agents for a quote a second time, but I feel silly asking for quotes every month.  We haven't even gone to "THE" agent, which is my family's usual travel agent.  I think I will look around first, and then get her to match or beat the best price I get :)

          I called around to a few different agents... I found most wanted me to go in person to get quotes. I got my first set of prices and they were too high (I was starting to look for alternative resorts) but I just kept checking in with them every 4 weeks or so and eventually hit the jackpot! I wouldn't feel silly checking in once a month to see if rates changed at all! The agent shouldn't mind checking into it if she wants your business! We originally got our first quote last November, I checked back periodically until we finally booked in April and the agent assured me most people do this to get the best rates possible! Good luck!

                    This forum has driven me up a wall this morning trying to post pics so I will be working on it.  I keep getting errors.  I actually lost the reveiw 3 times today, luckily I had it in Word.

                      I'm not getting married until November 6th, but I talked to my TA yesterday and found out that I already have 24 adults and 7 kids booked so far at the hotel. I'm expecting a lot more, but just getting so excited!!
