all booked up???

Recommended Posts

It seems that every time I look at a hotel and dates for 2010 I have the worst luck! lol So I was looking for april/may/june 2010 at the Grand Palladium Bavaro and it says unavailable. Is it possible that they book up that fasthuh.gif I saw some reviews and was interested in pricing for rooms but, it looks like there aren't any available. sad.gif

Are you just checking online? A lot of the resorts do have conventions and conferences, which take up a lot of rooms - but I would suggest you use a TA ... b/c they can work directly with the resort to let them know your preferred dates and expected # of rooms and work from there to find dates that will work and block off the rooms. Otherwise, you run the risk of the resort selling out now or down the road before all of your guests are booked. Having a TA who is abe to have the resort block off a certain # of rooms is your best bet.

 

And you also have to make sure, once you pick a resort that has availability ... that the judge/minister is available as well to perform the ceremony.

Alot of resorts haven't released their rates yet for that time of year. I am getting married May 18,2010 at the Majestic and I am waiting for the prices from the resort. When I search on their site for availability it says unavailable which is what I think is happening to you. I would definitely contact a TA because it will make things alot easier for you. Good luck and congrats!

thanks girls! I was planning on getting a TA but I was hoping to look at prices so I could get an idea... I am torn between majestic and palladium, but I wanted to compare prices and stuff. I don't want to choose a date and then not know if rooms are available during that time. thanks for your help. maybe ill just contact a ta early for ideas hehe

A TA will be able to give you last years rates, and a better idea of this years rates. A TA will also ensure that you don't book at a resort until you know the rates and that your preferred wedding date is available.

i think, that in general the majestic will be more expensive than the palladium. i agree about checking with a TA - a fellow BDW bride recommended ours, and so far so good!

thanks.. I keep changing my mind on resorts! lol so many options. I really liked the majestic but it seems more expensive. We will probably go with Grand Palladium Bavaro if rooms/dates are available because it will be a couple grand saved. Plus I like that the price is cheaper and the free dinner seems like it is semi private. And that there are 3 places at one. I will have to contact a TA and see whats available. Thanks again!

now i'm back on to GP Bavaro too - it's going to be cheaper for the guests than DPB (our other front runner), but i'm hoping if that's the make / break factor, they will be inthe royal suites at GP for a cheaper than DPB, by almost $50/day.
