Honestly, i personally didn't care for Ibero Beaches but Suites and Grand are really both pretty. They did have alot of kids there at Suites but that was expected since it's the holiday season and Suites are kid friendly, Grand is adults only . We only took a tour of the lobby, pool area and beach which all those areas were very clean. we were actually trying to see Grand so we didn't ask to see the Suites ammenities and rooms, but online it looks really nice as well. People are friendly if you are staying there.
I did find a travel agent and they started putting together packages for us, you're right, it is much easier going thru them. Thanks! Congrats to you too....and good luck as well! i know you're have a blast there.
We stayed at the Beach for our site visit (really, just to save money since we flew down there for only 3 days and it was mostly business) and took a full tour of the Suites with Nicole. The rooms at the Beach don't even compare to the Suites!! The Suites look exactly like the pictures online (Oyster.com is a good reference) If the Iberostar Beach was the only resort in Montego Bay, I honestly would have looked at different resorts. The food was good, the service was excellent but we had the worst 2 rooms in the whole hotel (Overlooking a ROOF with astro-turf!) and they knew we were there for a site visit. Completely turned me off. We also had an appointment with Kamoya (I know she is gone now) to talk about possibly having the wedding there and when we got there they told us she was off the entire time we were there.
So we called Nicole and she accommodated a tour right away! We even did a wine tasting while we were at the Suites. Nicole has a lot of experience in coordinating weddings and we saw a few while we were down there. The Suites is definitely a more upscale version of the Beach. We did not visit the Grand because I knew I'd fall in love with it and it was definitely out of the budget for our guests. Besides being annoyed about all of the extras, I'm 100% confident our guests are going to have an amazing time!! We will definitely return to Iberostar for anniversaries but will most likey stay at the Grand in the future.
Does anyone know how much tablecloths are to rent from TaiFlora for the large round tables (71.5 x 29)? I'm not using them for flowers but am curious what they would charge.
19 weeks exactly until the big day!!! Time goes so fast!
