HELP ...any past and present MOON PALACE brides!!

We have been trying to "iron out" our promotional offers since day 1 ie. who is responsible for what - the tour operator or the hotel?? (I do have 20 people, with over 75 nights)
While at our meeting with the onsite wedding co-ordinator earlier this week, she informs us that we will not need to pay for our wedding functions but the credit for the 7 compl. nights will be credited by the tour operator. Prior to this we received notification from our TA that the hotel would be issuing this "credit " onto our master wedding account.
After contacting our TA again, she advises in order to have received this offer, we would have had to book our reservation directly through MP. There is nothing on MP's site about booking directly thru them for ANY of their current promos. If that were the case, then why would I still be eligible to receive the free private functions?? Same promo !!
As a gesture of good will I suppose, the tour operator has offered a small refund of $600.00. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate that, rather than nothing at all but when I have to book in my photographer at almost $300/night, I certainly don't think a $600 credit replaces a credit of 7 compl. nights.
Please let me know if any of you have had similar experiences and/or how you've booked your travel and the promos you received. How much was actually credited to your account for the 7 nights

NOW, recently the MP updated their Group Contract page...but they kept the same language of:
* Function area will be assigned upon availability and confirmed upon arrival
** Complimentary nights will be credited through group contract post travel. Applies to all wedding collections & complimentary package for groups booked with a signed group contract & specific # of rooms.
On line bookings do not qualify.
Although this may not be helpful to you, my suggestion would be to go back to your TA if you did not sign a Group Contract with MP in the first place. It really sounds like something should have been in writing from either the TA or MP to gaurantee the Free Functions and the Comp Nights. I personally would go back to the TA and have her explain to me how she was able to get you the Free Functions and not the 7 Comp Nights....seems that they should go hand in hand either way.
Good luck! Hope some of the other girls can help you out!

Have you tried posting on the MP 2008 or 2009 Brides' thread? If the member is subscribed, your post will populate to their personal email boxes even if they no longer sign in to the forum.

When I contacted Palace Resorts to inquire if the credit infact had been issued and for how much, she directed me to contact my TA?!! The last 6 months has been frustrating for similar reasons....I can NEVER get an answer from Palace Resorts. They always redirect me to my TA.
In anycase, I advised my TA that I would be seeking legal advice to verify I did/will receive the promotions that I am due.
The next day I received an email from my TA letting me know that the tour operator had doubled my refund. I still have no idea what the 7 day credit should equate to but I'm feeling a bit better now.
