Resort Tax On All Svcs and Fees > Is this Standard?
Posted 28 April 2009 - 07:44 PM
We are finalizing our wedding details and recently found out that the resort is charging a 20% tax/service charge on all items that we purchase through them, including vendor fees, decor, set-ups, etc. We expected to pay a tax and service charge on food and beverage, but were a little surprised that the tax/svc charge is applied to everything (since this bumps up our music, florist and photography fees that are from outside vendors). Especially since they require that we book vendors through them.
Is this tax normal? When we asked they said this is customary for all resorts, so I wanted to get some perspectives from other brides. Note, we are not at an AI, so all of our costs are essentially a la carte.
Thanks for any info on this!

Sorry, hopefully someone has more information about this. Would this included in your contract?

resorts in mexico run their own rules. it's nuts. one minute they tell you one thing next minute they change (forthe worse)
i was at Palace Playacar for a friend's wedding, they didn't bother to take off the taxes for my resort credits until I showed them the paperwork stating there's NO taxes if booked before april 1. then when i used the resort credits to buy tequila at the gift shop(by the way 200 dollars for a generic unheard of brand is ridiculous) i was told it has to be taxed since its' not a service. I paid it. 20 bucks in taxes which is about what the damn thing cost.
