    No worries. I actually put that to respond to another post but forget to quote it!! Oops.

     

    That is for one week (7 nights) Per Person based on Double. That is 1800 taxes in, Air, hotel and transfers. The Grand I was quoted for about $600 more for the week. I did not price up the beach.

     

    I actually thought that was a really good price for peak season right around Easter...
     

    Was this for the Suites?! I am being quoted around the same price for the Beach during July 2013

      Does anyone know the price of open bar at a private reception at the Suites?  I just realized (when I was looking over all the info) that if you have a private reception and rent the restaurant it includes dinner, beer/wine, soft drinks, coffee/tea (instead of having to pay the $18 per person).

       

      I see for a cocktail party it's $7/hour per person for a National Bar and $10/hour per person for International Bar..... so 1) what is the difference between national/international and 2) do those charges also apply to a reception?

       

      Thanks!!!!

          As far as I'm aware.. the $18 is for the ceremony part (champagne, cake... set up fee) this has nothing to do with Dinner. Dinner is its own separate charge..... and it seems they nichol and dime you for everything...

           

          National bar would be there local stuff (red stripe, appleton, etc) International will host a selection from everywhere else.

            The sooner that you can book it the better. To be honest, I booked for end of January next year and I went through itravel2000 with the wedding/group coodinator. I have found that the wedding coordinator at the resort (Rose Hall Beach, her name is Trisha) will respond to the travel agent in a timely manner but not to me. My suggestion is to go through an agent. I hvae tried myself to her through to the resort, with no luck until after I called them and was adamant that she call me back. However, my agent seems to get an answer within hours. Plus our agent got us an amazing deal so it's ncie to have them as well :)

                If you want I can send you the Booking form and you can just send that in to reserve your date, that's all they need. Send me your email if you want me to do that :)

                  How far in advance did you bother making contact with the WC?

                   

                  I'm getting married next March. Should I wait until Dec or Jan ... or later. . or should I start the ball rolling sooner? Is there any point to? I don't want to miss out on anything, but I also don't want to take away from them working with the Brides that are getting married now.

                   

                  It just that it seems that you could be sharing certain things between resorts.. so I wanted to get on the list sooner.. but will I even get a response at this point?!

                   

                  Hi Kassi,

                   

                  I asked the WC at the Beach when she will start to work on the details for my wedding, and she said they typically begin planning 2 months prior to the wedding. I figure I will keep a list of any questions I have and get them addressed at that time, unless there is something I need answered sooner to make some decisions.

                    I got this menu from the WC at the Suites for the Gourmet restuarant Calabash, but nothing really seems too appetizing to me.  Has anyone tried these dishes or can you suggest a different restuarant with a better menu option?

                       Question for upcoming 2012 brides:

                       

                      I requested the updated wedding details from the WC.  She gave me the updated document that is still titled "2012 Wedding Details" but has changed the minimum number of people needed for certain restaurants.  See below:

                       

                      Private Events:

                      Aunt Ruby 7-10:30 pm.  Groups of 100 or more only according to the new info. 

                      Calabash:  6:30-10pm.  Seats between 70-100 people depending on the seating arrangment.

                      Mediterranean:  "If you would like to have a private dinner, but have less than 70 guests, we offer the Mediterranean Restaurant for rental from 6:30pm until 10pm.  (The minimum number of people to have this restaurant in private is 40 adults and depending on the seating arrangement it fits up to 50 persons)." 

                       

                      I don't really understand what you are supposed to do if you want a private reception with dancing and you only have 60 adults since the Med. restaurant says that it fits up to 50. 

                       

                      Is this new document true?  In other words, is this document affecting any of the upcoming weddings?   I really hope there is some way around this... I don't want to have a reception at the Mediterranean restaurant.
