Are you getting your stay for free or getting any other perks?

Recommended Posts

We got an upgrade with our wedding at the Riu Jalisco in PV. They seemed really good about giving us the best service/treatments because it was our wedding. I also think we got some free spa services for having so many people book there.

We are flying with Air Canada and got 1 free trip with each 15 people booked. That was just for the first couple of months though, I believe it is now 1 free one for every 25 booked.

Wow, I am so envious of all your perks! It appears the the resorts in Mexico offer much better perks than those in Jamaica.

I also went with DW.com and she says that to get the group perks, everyone has to book through her. Its been a great source of stress to me because her rates are a little higher than some other rates you can get through other TAs and on the web so some of my guests have booked elsewhere. Sigh!

She says however that we will get the Beaches free wedding etc. with more than 10 rms booked. I wonder if it would be worthwhile contacting beaches to let them know of the guests that did not book through her? I could get25 rms and the 26th is free. I wonder what other perks I am missing out on by going through her?

My TA is giving me a 50$ credit for each room booked through her. I thought that was great till my friends and family started booking though online websites without calling her to price match. It is so much easier for my TA to coordinate everything like transfers, rehersal dinner reservations and so on. I was also going to use what i saw as free money to pay for excersions for guests as a gift. Not sure what to do now. Maybe the guests who played by the rules (my family) will get the excersions gifts and the people who did not (my FI family) will not hahahaha

We are also using DW.com and staying at the Catalonia Riviera Maya, these are two of our perks!

 

FREE WEDDING PACKAGE

The Renewal of Vows Ceremony ($399 value) is free with your group reservation of 10 double rooms, staying for a minimum of 5 nights (equal 50 room nights). This offer is not combinable with other promotional offers.

 

We also get a free upgrade to a suite if we have 15 rooms booked.

 

Good Luck!

We are going to Punta Cana, and are using a contact through work with sell off vacations. Our travel agent is AMAZING, he is getting us everything from lower deposit rates to free seat upgrades and we get every 12th person free... definitely do your research and look around. And the biggest thing is, don't be afraid to ask!! If you don't ask, you will never know! Sometimes if you get something with one travel agent that sounds good, go see ANOTHER TA and see if they can offer you the same perk and maybe something more to entice you to use their company. Its all a big dance... ahaha

    • 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.
