That just seems pretty high to me, because when I called the hotel directly it was much cheaper then that. I got a quote for 4 nights a thurs arrival and monday departure it was $1179 per couple for the standard garden view room. I don't know it might be cheaper for my guests to go through the hotel directly.
We gave people the option - we just put a little insert in our save the dates that said "we've chosen to book our travel with..., please call her at.... if you'd like to book through her" I'd say most of the older guests are all using Heather, most of our friends are booking on their own. Although I've had several conversations with Heather about the complaints on trip advisor about checking in and she said that Berman Travel has a really good relationship with Dreams so her clients only experience upgrades and if they try to pull anything with people she's booked, we can call her from Mexico and she'll deal with it. Which made me feel a lot better!
We're September of this year, which is shoulder season and historically a slow season for the resort - so we're paying I believe 2300 for 7 nights. My future brother in law and his girlfriend did 5 nights and is paying 1200 (Oceanview).
