Help! Advice Choosing TA

Recommended Posts

I am getting overwhelmed trying to choose a TA.  We haven't decided on a specific resort although we know we want either Negril or Montego Bay and we have a list of must haves for the resort (kid-friendly, max price, etc)


The problem is that I have contacted several agents and they all seem to push toward their own preferred hotel brand (because they get an extra better commission, I'm sure) but none of them are really taking our preferences into account.  I really don't mind someone making a little extra money b/c we chose a brand that they have a special relationship with as long as it meets our needs.


Also, they all want me to sign papers upfront without ever giving me a real idea of what they can do for me (as far as pricing, etc.)


How did you guys choose your TA?  How did you handle it if they pushed you toward something that you didn't want?  Did you sign papers before actually seeing any of the results of their work?




BTW: We are having over 25 people that are flying from different parts of the US, so I already KNOW that I want a TA to handle that stuff.

    • 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.
