OMG I have been harrassing my TA to try and get something in writing about this! From my standpoint, if you book something during a specific promotion, that promotion and all of its fine print should appy....even if the government is instituting this tax, maybe it is only for reservations made AFTER April 2012? Is there ANY way either of you would be willing to email me that sheet you have saying we wouldn't be charged the tax?! snimmagadda1@gmail.com I'd REALLY appreciate it!!!

Rpc51, I had three people try to contact Renee to get her to start helping me for over a month, then less than 2 months before the wedding she contacts me and tells me we have to hurry and plan everything, making it seem like it was MY fault she hadn't contacted me and that nothing was done. She was really nice on the phone and what not, but she often turns around and changes what she says, and then gets the wrong information from people and expects you to keep track of what she has been saying. I would recommend asking for someone else.

 

 That is awful!  I'm sorry you are dealing with that.  Are you far away from hitting the unlimited?  Maybe if you are off by a little there is something you can do if you have it in writing from the coordinator that she wrote you did reach the goal.  I don't know.    I wouldn't give up on planning, this is your day!  I totally kept emailing my coordinator and copying every other coordinators email that I could get my hands on in order to get responses.  It's sad to say, but that did the trick.  I hate that you really can't escalate to a manager, since there is no way to find out who they are.

I'm going through something similar. I did not realize the wedding group amenities only apply if your guests all book with the same travel agent. So half my guests booked with the TA and the other half directly with the hotel. Basically I'm not getting any "wedding amenities" and have to pay for my reception. If my wedding was not a few weeks away I'd have told this resort I was canceling. It's very disappointing.

How does the resort tax work? Do you pay cash for the tax at time of use for the credits? Or do they add the tax up on your bill at the end of the trip for the total of credit you use?
Each transaction will have the individual tax charge added to your room bill to pay at checkout.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
