Now what they are offering is the Palapa which is fine but the are not allowing me to use my Transat package and the extra dinners that I have purchased through Transat towards the dinner in the Palapa. They are also offering a discount for the meal but are only giving me one entree option, when I know there is at least 5 entree choices. Has anyone else ever had this situation happen to them at GS? Does anyone know how much seating is available at the Health bar or has anyone had their wedding receptions there? Any info or pointers would help. We are leaving to Mexico this Sunday Jan. 27/13
We also booked with Transat but decided originally to upgrade to the Palapa. We are paying an extra 11,000 pesos for the Palapa and also paying for everyones food.
We were given the option of the Beach/Palapa Menu, which has 3 entrees to choose from - Surf & Turf (800 pesos per person), Steak & Panela Cheese or Salmon in clam sauce (both 500 pesos per person), or I just found out we could also choose their BBQ menu which is like a buffet that has chicken, pasta, fish and steak as entrees. Since we are not served the meal, its 350 pesos per person.
Everything is costing us about an extra $2800 CAD on top of our Transat package. Because this was not your original choice or your problem that they over booked, I would definitely not be paying.
I don't remember where the Health bar was, is it by the Spa?
