          OMG thats alot!! The last time we went there in Nov. had a JR suite we paid alittle over 900.00 pp OUT of PHILLY!!!That price seems a bit high. What travel group did your agent use? Tell her to get a qutoe from GOGO tours or even Apple. She must have booked everything seperate? Some of my guests will be traveling on a thursday and leaving sunday so for 3 nights the price is just 280.00. By the way my prices went alittle lower since we 1st booked and my agent called GO GO tours and they adjusted our prices.

              I used a friend's mom that is a travel agent and I believe she negotiated directly with RIU and with Air Jamaica. Including airfare from Philly, 3 nights is arpund $800. Most people are coming for 5 nights and it is around $1050. You should definitely check out what is going on! That seems really expensive!

                  OH MY GOSH!!! I'm starting to get mad!!! We already booked through my TA - put down a $300 deposit for the trip @ $3300, and a few guests have put down the same deposits for their trips. I emailed her with the info (she's traveling right now and only available via email), hopefully I hear from her soon. If I don't, any ideas about what to do

                      Is the deposit refundable? If so, I would start getting prices from other TAs.
