Iberostar Grand Rose Hall

Recommended Posts

Ok so I am confused... if you get married at the grand do a certain percentage of your guests have to be staying at the grand? can anyone post a contract on the site? I just want to be able to see the whole contract for myself. I am going to the Iberostar in May to do a site visit and book my May/June 2013 wedding, I want all the facts ahead of time so I am armed with all of my questions Thanks ladies!

According to the new revised contract, 90% of your guests have to stay at ANY Iberostar property (Grand, Suites, or Beach).  It says nothing about a certain percentage staying at the Grand.  And it doesn't mention different rules for different wedding packages (free package versus a regular package).  But in order to qualify for the free package you need 5 rooms booked at the Grand for 3 nights OR 1 ocean front room for 7 nights.  The contract was literally just revised for 2012 at the end of December.  I've attached the contract. But in case you can't download it, send me your email and I will send you a copy.

Thanks so much for that Leah! you really cleared things up... alot of times it's easier to look at the contract yourself rather than listening to others!

It seems there is a huge price difference in renting the Port Maria depending on how many guests you have. I am thinking my final count will be about 53 people but it's an extra $1,500 to rent it out for 51-75 people compared to 30-50 people which I think is absurd. I wonder if I could negotiate to just pay a per person fee for anyone over the 50 person maximum of the lower priced package? Have any previous brides had this issue?

Janielle told me if I wanted a la carte I could pay just the per person fee and not the $3000. So if you did that you would only have to pay $3700 but than you would not have a buffett you would have a pre-selected menu (which could be a hassle). I just think it sucks to have to pay so much for the reception when all the guests are paying to stay there anyways (but we have already beat that issue dead).

Thanks Shannon. I'm going to try to negotiate with her about it...this should be fun. I agree, the prices are totally ridiculous. By the way - what time are you having your reception and are you doing a formal cocktail hour? I wish we could start the reception at 6:30 since we are having our ceremony at 5 but Janielle said the earliest the reception can start is 7 so I guess I'll just have my guests go to the lobby bar in between for an "informal" cocktail hour and then we are going to extend the reception for an hour to make it from 7-11.

No problem! I know I wish I could too, I was thinking it is going to be a LONG break for everyone. I originally had my ceremony for 4, but I think I am going to push it back to 5. The old policy was 630-1030 reception (i now feel like we are being cheated because it will be so short). I am not doing a formal cocktail hour but I am highly encouraging the guests to go to the lobby bar and telling them that is the cocktail hour. I was thinking of asking Janielle if I could have a small table set up there for the guestbook. That way people will feel more like a cocktail hour. I know time will fly for us, with the picture but I am kind of worried about the guest... that is a LONG time for people to tie one on, lol. Is it extra for the the extra time of the ceremony? Are you going with the resort DJ? I asked about who would MC the reception, and she said one of my guests, which I doubt anyone would sign up for. So hopefully he will!

I think Janielle told me an extra hour for the reception would cost $250. I plan on using the resort DJ too but I had no clue that we would need someone to MC? What is the point of paying for the DJ if he doesn't MC? lol...oh just another thing to worry about! Maybe I'll record myself on my iPOD for the entire reception and just pay the DJ $500 to push play...hahaha right! This place is really annoying.

 

I did talk to Janielle about the buffet vs. a la carte and she said I would have to pay the extra $1,500 even if I only had 1 person more than the 30-50 person option...so I might be forced to do a la carte just to save money. None of it makes sense to me at all and probably never will. At least we are in this together lol.
