Palace Resort Wedding Group Contract Issue

Recommended Posts

I am going to post this a couple places. Did any of you prior Palace brides have any problems with the items promised in your group contract?

 

Our contract read if we had 20 rooms times 3 nights OR 60 room nights, the hotel agrees to provide a complimentary private function (our reception) plus 4 complimentary nights.

 

It also read if we had 25 rooms times 3 nights or 75 room nights and the hotel agrees to provide unlimited private functions plus 7 complimentary nights.

 

We had 62 room nights and are having a problem getting the refund for the complimentary nights. They did give us our private function the day of the wedding but now Palace is telling us if they comp our rooms we no longer have the 60 nights.

 

Did anyone else have this problem? The contract our TA provided us seems to be pretty clear on this. She is currently trying to get to the bottom of this issue too.

Hi There!

 

I am actually considering a wedding at Playacar Palace and one of the reasons I am pretty much sold on it is because of the incentives Palace Resorts offer. Has this issue been resolved?? I am curious, did your 62 room night total include your stay as well? If so, I dont think you are allowed to include the bride and grooms stay - just the guests... Sorry, just trying to make sense of it... either way, it can be very misleading if that is never stated anywhere in the contract. Please keep me posted... I am sorry to hear you are going through this...

Cici,

 

My TA is still working on it. The last I heard, she got to the right department and it was being resolved. Our contract was written so our rooms nights (11 of them) were included in the count. Another bride from MP had a similar problem and she said she just had to get to the correct department before it was resolved.

 

The Palace resorts are great! If something were to happen and us not get these 4 nights refunded, I would still do it again. All the other incentives (tours, spa, free wedding items) still make it an outstanding deal. Just our free reception and free cocktail hour with the number of rooms booked probably saved us several $K.

 

I will keep this thread updated with the final outcome.

Cici, I don't know what stage you are in doing your contract but something that has come up with a few Moon Palace brides is different contract wording.

 

Make sure you get a TA that will write your contract for number of rooms time 3 nights or number of room nights. With 20 rooms times 3 you get the free upgraded event. With 25 rooms times 3 you get unlimited free functions. My TA had it with number or rooms (i.e. 20 times 3 nights) or number of paid nights (60 nights). Our total rooms ended up dropping under 20 but because it was worded for room nights too, we got our free stuff for the wedding (of course, we are still working on the free nights but we got the other stuff).

OK! I am actually not using a travel agent and going directly through the resort but I will make sure the contract is written up the way you suggested. I am so happy you still recommend them regardless of this issue -- that makes me feel a little better :) I am going to Playacar Palace a week from Thursday for a site inspection, so if all goes as planned and I love it I'm going to book it. PLEASE let me know once the issue has been resolved - I am keeping my fingers crossed for you!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
