Your review is super helpful! I'm getting married May 24th, 2014 and am beginning to plan my big Indian wedding which seems to be at a standstill since I'm not hearing back from anyone unless I call them directly. Even then I just keep getting the run around and not real answer, just "We're discussing with management" I'm not to worried since most Brides on here said everything went smoothly but I'm still a little concerned since Indian Ceremonies are quite different than Christian Ceremonies and I'm hoping they understand that and can get everything done the way I need. Anyways, I'm wondering how you bagged the free upgrades for your guests! My agent told me for Don Pablo it's an extra $75/person. I'm also wondering if the $800 Vendor Fee got waived for you because you were in the Don Pablo Section? When I spoke to the planners over the phone and asked the difference between Don Pablo they basically said it was a resort within a resort. Any ideas? Thanks so much!
My agent (Marlin Travel) told me we can't upgrade to Don Pablo because Transat considers it a different resort. I thought that was very strange.
I also can't get an answer from the wedding coordinators at the moment. Very frustrating. I wish Stephanie was still there.
We booked through Marlin Travel (Transat). We're paying for the Royal Section and getting the new package that upgrades the Bride and Groom and the parents. The wedding coordinator confirmed when I asked, that since we booked the Royal section we would be upgraded to the Don Pablo section. We don't have to pay an extra $75 per guest since the room upgrade for us is included in the package and we didn't book that section. None of our guests, other than our parents will be staying in that section.
