The $200 pp per night rate for the Grand came from Go Iberostar Vacations (they specialize in only Iberostar). I contacted Beach Bum Vacations and they quoted me $230. And I also contacted AAA and they said $300 pp! Which I think has to be a mistake. I'm also waiting for rates from Liberty Travel and another "destination wedding planner/travel agent" that I found on the internet.
The $200 rate was for a June 11th wedding date, so you should be able to get the same rate! Beach Bum seems like a very good company, very responsive and helpful. But she said once I go into contract they wouldn't match or adjust any rates, plus they want $100 pp for a deposit just to hold the rooms. Whereas Go Iberostar claims that they will match or beat any rate. But she's not very responsive and will take several days to respond.
Which travel agent are you using?
