    Thanks again for all the help!

    Me too!  I emailed Annie about this and her response wasn't very clear.  From what I gathered, she said the company has recently invested a lot of money into services like photography and they are trying to promote the use of in house photographers.  I also asked her if there would be any other charges not mentioned on our contract. 

     

    This was her response, "Yes, the company have been investing in our photography service and this is the reason of the price increment. Have you already booked with another outside photographer? We for sure trying at our most to keep the price as it is, mostly for services that have been confirmed on your contract, but for other services we are working with some external supplier, and so, some prices might be subject to changes do to the fact that we do not have a major control on their price raise."

     

    It seems, the couples who have already booked should be fine but until it's finalized on the contract, nothing is for sure.  Please let us know if you get any new info.! :)

        Hi Kim!

         

        Our group is staying at the Barcelo Puerto Vallarta (we are staying there and getting married within a couple of weeks of you!!) but I haven't asked about group bookings at the restaurant yet. I will let you know once I find out, unless I see that someone else replies before then.

        Hi again,

         

        Also, is anyone staying at the Barcelo in Puerto Vallarta?  If so, do you know if they will do group bookings at their restaurants?

         

        Thanks,

         

        Kim

            Hello,

             

            I am getting married on June 30 and our group is staying at the Barcelo.  They can do a private dinner for 2-hours including cocktail service for $24 per person.  I have not had much luck with getting them to do a group reservation at one of their restaurants.  I did speak to someone again to today and she assured me I would receive a call back to confirm my options by Monday.  I will keep you posted.

              Great news!  I did hear back from the Barcelo this week and there was the private dining I mentioned for $24 per person.  However, they were able to confirm a 30-person reservation in one of their specialty dining rooms for no additional charge.

                      Yes, I heard the same thing, that the specialty dining room will count as one of your three dinners at the specialty restaurants, but that they will do the reservation free of charge! That's fine by us, as long as we are all able to sit together!
