2011 Prices

Recommended Posts

I received rates for the RIU in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. My TA had to make a special request to Sunquest. We are asking our guests to put down their own down payments. However, we have the option to block a group of rooms. If we choose to do this, we will put down a deposit for all rooms. If some rooms are not needed, the deposit balance will be transferred to our room.

I just changed my resort because the quote I got for it was way more than I wanted my guests to spend ($1800). Now I've switched to the Riu Negril where the quotes are under $1500...I'm much happier with that and I really wanted Negril in the first place!

oh that's amazing! I would be open to changing out resort but for some reason my FI is being really stubborn about this! He's been so "whatever" about the whole planning process, but the moment I suggested changing he said no way, if people want to come they'll come.

we found as soon as we did that since people don't know when we updated the website, it helped a lot.....people really got that the pricing still wasn't out and we'd let them know when it was!
Never mind the texts etc lol I just got tired of answering the SAME questions over and over and OVER again lmao passports, TA's, booking, dates ugghh that Facebook group was a life saver LOL

Your FI and mine sound like birds of a feather LOL I'll ask if he likes something ... its always mhmm, I'll ask which one do you like better .... he thinks two things are the same, I finally talk about switching the resort to some place more economical - he promptly said, "NOPE - thats why we gave them 14 months notice with the STD!" Too funny lol

I just noticed that the prices are online now for the week of April 3rd - I looked up Moon Palace and the prices are starting at $2380 (Cdn)! I am trying not to worry about it too much, and hope the prices come down. Also wait for TA's to get back to me with their prices...

Ok we're getting married Jan 11th and we are going to the Melia in Punta Cana. It's a pretty nice resort and our quote is $1544. All tax included. Also the Melia is on Transats Promise list so we are watching the prices and our group gets a 1 time price matching reduction.

My TA e-mailed me the other day...we're FINALLY starting to see some specials come out for our resort. I should *hopefully* have a group contract quote on Tuesday this week. The good news is that even if we take the contract, we can adjust the pricing if it goes down even more! I'm finally starting to de-stress!

    • 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.
