Do I have to pay for my 2 yr old to stay on the Resort?

Recommended Posts

I'm getting married at ROR. I was wondering if I have to pay for my 2 yr old? Do anyone know......I know I have to pay for his plane ticket, but do I have to pay for him to stay on the resort?

As insane as it is to rationalize --I mean really how much will as 2 year old eat in a week, they are charged. It may be less than the adult rate, but yes there is a fee. See what your TA can work out with the hotel.

If I remember correctly, children 1 years old & under are free, so you do have to pay for the 2 year old. At the time of our wedding the rate for my 5 year old FG was about $88 dollars per night.

My aunt checked into the price of taking her kids. Aged six, eight and nine. I remember her saying that it was nearly the price of an adult rate, and the five of them would stay in one standard room! Something tells me it was $1300 for a child vs. $1900 for an adult (from where I live I mean). It would probably be different for a toddler though...

Go to Rius website and just plug in the dates for one child and two adults. Some resorts offer free for 2-12 year olds. You know what, I don't think Riu offers the free price but they do charge you for half I think

I was so curious to see what the actual rates were, that I went to their website & did this. Went to Riu's site, picked ROR with dates of 5/14/09 to 5/18/09, 5 days/4 nights.
I put in 2 adults & 1 child under age 2.
These were the rates:

Your stay in: All inclusive
1 Double standard, bathroom, partial sea view, balcony or terrace
5/14/09 -5/18/09
4 Night/s x 2 Adults x 155.00 USD = 1,240.00 USD
5/14/09 -5/18/09
4 Night/s x 1 Baby x 0.00 USD = 0.00 USD
Total cost = 1,240.00 USD

I then did the same thing, using the same dates & room type, with 2 adults & 1 child age 2. hese were those rates, which you will see the charge for that child is $77.50 per night:

5/14/09 -5/18/09 4 Night/s x 2 Adults x 155.00 USD = 1,240.00 USD
5/14/09 -5/18/09 4 Night/s x 1 Children (2 years) x 77.50 USD = 310.00 USD
Total cost = 1,550.00 USD

Lastly, just to be thorough, I changed the age of the child to 10 years old, and I got the same rate of $77.50 per night:

INFORMATION ON YOUR STAY

BREAKDOWN ROOM/RATES

Your stay in: All inclusive

1 Double standard, bathroom, partial sea view, balcony or terrace
5/14/09 -5/18/09 4 Night/s x 2 Adults x 155.00 USD = 1,240.00 USD
5/14/09 -5/18/09 4 Night/s x 1 Children (10 years ) x 77.50 USD = 310.00 USD

Total cost = 1,550.00 USD

So going by their site, any child 2 to 12, should pay $77.50 per night. A child over 12 is considered an adult & would pay the adult rate.
Also, according to their site, and to what I was told for my wedding, the maximum capacity per room is 3. The website would only allow me to choose a total of 3 in one room. I don't know how that works if you're more than a family of 3.

They will only allow 3 per room max. I had a long discussion with a RIU staff member....

 

If you have, say 3 kids, you have to register 2 other kids to another room, but of course, you can have them stay with you. This was a big deal for us, that is, until those family members backed out (of course!!)
