    Hey everyone! New bride here! I'm in the process of deciding if Dreams PV is the right destination for us. I am working with the resort to get a definite price on our room as well as our guest rooms. I've seen on here that some brides who booked 30 guest rooms got their room for free. Is this a special deal or the "usual" for DPV? Did you get your whole stay taken care of? Just trying to make sense of this :) Thanks ladies! Don't know WHAT I would do without this site! Sure makes planning a wedding in Mexico a MILLION times easier!
    Cheers!
    Kate

    P.S. Any hints on getting the cost of the guests rooms down so we can save them money??

      Congrats Kate! Just my opinion but get some TA quotes as well. TA's were less than Dreams for me and Dreams wouldn't budge on the price.

      With my TA for double occupancy we got for 35 rooms:
      Deluxe - $110 per night (per person)
      Jr Suite - $135
      Jr jacuzzi - $145

      This was with taxes and fees included - single occupancy rates were more than splitting the double occupancy.

      Just so you know though, rates definitely depend on the time of year you are going and when you book. As far as upgrades, we got a 1 level upgrade from deluxe to jr suite and I think 3 free nights at the deluxe rate - Dreams PV is not good at upgrades at all. If you read some of our reviews you will see that.

      Any questions feel free to ask but definitely contact a TA.

        I would check out rates going through the hotel directly, but you might want to look into using a travel agent as well. Sometimes the travel agent can negotiate with the hotel directly to give you added discounts and upgrades.
        I personally found going through the travel agent was less expensive and easier in general. Especially when communicating back and worth. Dreams PV does a great job communicating and getting back to you, but I found that a travel agent is more accessible for our guests (to contact/ get questions answered) and more in line for what services we needed.

                I had to take a second look at that for a second! lol
                But then I did the math and it isnt that far off from what we are paying :)

                    My travel agent is AWESOME. His name is Chuck with Away To Go Travel. His number is 336-855-0060. We book all of our vacations with him and he has saved us (and now our wedding guests) a lot of money!

                      try Tammy on the forum for TA - she might refer you out but they have the best relationship with Dreams
