    I will have to check this resort out. Our travel agent suggested this resort. I hope we make the right choice as we are back to square one from falling in love with another resort that was out of our budget for the guests :(

      I'm getting married here in a month and a half :) I will let you know how it is!
       

      Our guests paid anywhere from $1300-$1600 from Canada for a 7 day vacation ( it is over our spring break too)

       

      Good luck!

        Nice! That's good to know. We are hoping it won't be more than $1500 flying out from Toronto. Fingers Crossed. And we are doing it end of April 2013....

            I got a really good deal with Westjet through a group rate. Our guest are staying 7 day 6 night for about $1105/person flying out from Vancouver.

              That's awesome!!! Yes please let me know your experiences after. I guess I am lucky to find a Canadian bride on this forum to help me out eh! :)

               

              How are you finding the communication with the resort so far?

               

              Are you doing a package or just sticking with the complimentary? Just based on what I've seen so far, I think we might just stick with the complimentary and then just do the a la carte for maybe my bouquet, cake and a private reception...

                Wow! That's great! And you are planning to leave around the same time as we are. I should look into those prices as well with WestJet. If that is the rate from Vancouver...I wonder what it would be for Toronto coz it's usually cheaper from here compared to from our West.

                  I also wanted to know from any past brides... how was the English spoken by the officiant? Was it understandble?

                   

                  We recently went to a friends wedding in Dominican, and we could not understand a single word. Stuff like that can make or break the feel and emotion of the ceremony so it's something important to us.

                    Well, my wedding is in May, so our travel date is from May 14-20. My TA from Westjet vacation is Vicki Leslie, she has been great. She even helped one of our guest change their itinerary even though they purchased through our group rate. 

                     

                    One other reason why we got such a great rate was because they had early booking bonus which was about $150-200 off if you paid within a month period after I got the quote. We told our guest and they had no problem, so that was a big saving for everyone.

                     

                    Prior to Westjet, I've gotten quotes from Air Canada, Itravel2000, and Flight Center, none could compare. So definitely check out Westjet!

                      Is anyone doing the Civil Ceremony down there?

                       

                      We thought about getting legally married here first but we still need to pay $600 for a Minister down there to perform the ceremony even if we are already married, which is kind of ridiculious!

                       

                      We do not have enough rooms booked for the Complimentary package :( and that includes a minister

                      What is everyone else planning on doing? :)
