    Has anyone had any issues with guests wanting to stay alone, but not liking having to pay the full per room rate for a full night stay? Or with not being able to take off work for a full 4 night stay and having to still pay for all 4 days even if only being there 3 nights? We are starting to get concerned with not being able to do a "full takeover" now.

     

    Also, my fiance and I's friends are used to "all-inclusive" resorts and playa fiesta is unique altogether. But they are commenting on this. Did anyone else have any issues with that? It's a little discouraging since we've told people and just wandering if it is just us, or if anyone else had this problem?? 

     

    Sigh

      Hi kmc, this is also a concern of mine...I have yet to send my invites out yet but I already know some friends/family have mentioned concerns about lack of lunch included. If there are guests that plan on staying in their own room but refuse to pay the rate, they can always stay at a hotel nearby that will allow single bookings. AS for guests not staying the entire 4 nights, you could offer to just pay the room rate for the final night as a compromise.

       

      I do have a friend getting married in December (just a month before my wedding) and it's an all-inclusive where several people have been getting a great rate of $700 for the week; I don't think that is helping my case! But I take it as it is -- if we end up with empty rooms, so be it; the people who really wanted to be there will attend.

       

      I've had plenty of married people tell me (random strangers at that..) that you're never going to make everyone happy but you should really only try to please two  people  - you and your future hubby; it is your day after all!

        Hi Everyone,

        I'm new to this whole thing but have found this thread very helpful.  I was wondering how people worded the STD's to let people know they have to stay for the four nights? Thanks!

          Welcome! We kept our STD's simple, but pointed them towards our website that had all of the information on it. Worked for us! Happy Planning.

            Hi Heather,

             

            Welcome! I worded the STD: "please save the week" and then like Kate, also directed them to our website for more details. I actually went ahead and included a short letter as well as the booking instructions for PF in our STD too.

                For OOT bags, did everyone shop locally in PV or bring down most of the items included?

                  Hi Sarah,

                   

                  I ended up doing a little bit of both.  I bought bags, koozies, games, first aid kits, etc at home.  Then I bought snacks and such in PV to add to the pages.  However, one tip for you: we went to Walmart to get snacks and they didn't have anything we really wanted.  I heard Costco has a better selection.  So if you have a Costco card I would just head over there.  

                   

                  Good luck!

                   

                  Jennie

                    We did the same as Jennie... brought some and went to walmart for snacks. I agree, they weren't what we were looking for but it worked out and everyone loved them.

                      I am a Playa Fiesta bride to be.  We will be getting married on 11/11/11 :)  The planning is coming along, but I am looking forward to getting suggestions and advice here.

                      Thanks!
