    Loving this

    Are you referring to the Iberostar Beach resort or the Beaches chain?

     

    Either way....this is the reason I did NOT open other options up to stay elsewhere.  If they chose to do so, it was on them and so was the day pass.  The Suites were the "host hotel."  I did inform my TA that she could offer the Beach hotel to several of our folks based on the fact that they had children and would likely need to save some $.  I specified who these people were up front.  My dad was the only person who ended up staying @ the Beach because he waited til the last minute to book.  The TA told him about the day passes and of course he paid for it himself.  By the way, he kept his visitor bracelet on for more than the wedding day and had no issue hanging with us on the beach and pool.

     

    I say offer them the Suites, if they choose elsewhere then they pay the pass.  If its not going to work, then they see pics when you return!  LOL!

     

    Oh and there are no additional fees unless you do excursions or spa visits!

      Does anyone know if the resort provides cake favors (servers, knifes, etc). What about toasting glasses?

       

      With the headtable being included as part of decoration, is that anyway you want?

        My Guests and I are staying at the Beach and that is where we are getting married, but We were told that anyone staying at the any of the Iberostars, would not have to pay for a day pass.. Is that not the case if you were getting married at the suites but staying at the Beach? I would think they would all be the same and have access to them during the wedding day?!

          If you stay at the Grand, you have access to all 3. If you stay at the Suites, you have access to the Suites and Beach. If you stay at the Beach, you have access to the Beach only.

            Yep, this is correct.

              That makes sense since as part of your wedding costs you are paying for their food and drinks no matter which of three you are at. I suppose it might be an issue if you are also having your dinner at the suites if you are a beach guest and want to get drinks from the bars there. In my experience at other multi-level resorts like this one, they neevr mind people walking around from one part of the resort to another, they just don't want you ordering drinks/eating food and using amenities like pools without the visitors pass.

                ladies,

                 

                i believe if you're having your wedding at the suites and/or grande and you're a beach guest, you will be forced to pay a day pass fee to enter that resort for the wedding.  i'd recommend checking with the respective hotel's WC for confirmation  but i'm pretty sure that's the case.

                 

                my fiance and i stayed at the iberostar rosehall suites last year and we were able to roam freely between the suites and the beach..also, you can pretty much walk the shoreline between all three hotels; however, you will run into problems gaining access to bars, etc based on the color of your wristband.  please keep in mind that the disco and the spa are in the suites property while the japanese and cajun restaurants are in the beach property so you're likely to get to visit both areas if you're a suites and/or a grand bride.

                  Thanks for the replies...

                   

                  I meant for them to stay at the Iberostar beaches.  I told them to use my TA who includes transfers...but they wanted to "find their own"  I told them about the fee in the invitation...but when I sent out a reminder email..it was like they didn't understand what I was saying.

                   

                  Oh yeah...they are not paying for anything..nor have they offered...(JUST VENTING).....:)

                   

                  I told them if they want to throw an At home reception for the people that claim that can't make it because of expense..then they can put it together themselves...pay for it..and tell me when to be there....

                  I can't think of any costs besides day passes and transfers.  I'm assuming when you said they were staying at the beaches you didn't mean the IRHB and meant the actual beaches chain.  For my friends DW we stayed at Sunset Beach resort and went to Secrets Wild Orchid where the wedding was.  We just had to pay for the day pass because we were able to walk to the resort.  Be aware though, Secrets had a few types of day passes that only went to certain times.  It ended up costing us 130 bucks to stay from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.  We thought it was 100 bucks for unlimited time but were surprised when we got to the front desk.  The reason they make the prices so high is because it is an all-inclusive and expect people to drink all the booze and eat all the food they have there. 

                   

                   I know about the annoying  in-laws feeling.  They handed me a list of around 20 couples besides family they wanted to be invited to the AHR and then proceeded to put up a fuss about how I didn't want to invite the whole list.  AND they aren't paying for a cent of the wedding.  It's really quite annoying to hear their whining every second.  Sorry, just had to vent :)

                   

                  Hope that helped you!

                    It's all a "ranking" type thing...

                     

                    The beach it the lowest rank. So if you stay at the suites or grand you can go to the beach at no extra charge. However if you stay at the beach you have to pay to get into any of the other 2 resorts. Just like if you stay at the grand which is the "highest ranked one" then you can get into all of them at no additional charge and if you stay at the suites you can get into the beach at no charge but would have to pay to get into the Grand...Does that make sense? This is how it was explained to me by my TA.
