January 2012 prices

Recommended Posts

I have been searching for a resort in the Playa Del Carmen area and I have not found any prices under $1800/person all inclusive. Is this normal? We are looking to have a destination wedding for the end of January 2012 but it seems way out of our guests budget at that price. I have been told that the prices are inflated for 2012 but this seems crazy! We will be a group of about 150 guests and I figured that there would be some sort of discount or incentive for such a large group. is this unreasonable? I have looked at every resort in the area and it all seems the same. Does any one out there have any suggestions or know why prices are so high? Is it just me? Any input or guidance would be greatly appreciated!

I have heard the same thing. A couple of weeks ago the tax was cheaper by 200, now it's very expensive.

Also, we've changed our date from January to December because it was $1000 cheaper per person.

Kateks, have you talked to a TA?  My wedding is in Playa del Carmen 1-6-12 and we were able to get a rate of a little over 200/night/guest for an AI resort

Thanks Ladies.  I think we may end up changing our date as well.  I would like to hold out and see if the prices drop but I think it may be too risky.  What if the prices don't come down...yikes!?

We are working with a TA and this is what I am being told by her.

Thanks!

I have been told that prices are always this high this far out out and that they will most definitely drop in a few months... I'm sticking it out :)

We are working with a TA as well and she said the same thing.  She said promotions will probably come out in May or June for January.  We are trying to keep it under $1500 per person for 5 nights including transportation and airfare (from MN).

I'm in the same boat too.  The prices I'm getting for Feb/Mar 2012 are close to $1800 including taxes.  I'm looking for something $1500 max per person taxes included.  They keep telling me to wait, but I don't want to let it linger.  On another thread a few people suggested booking the hotel and flights separately that way you can nail down the wedding date.  I'm still torn.

We are planning to book at the Moon Palace for the end of January and havent set anything in stone yet but its roughly 1600 for 5 nights including flight. Our TA said it should drop also this summer but it will most likely not go up, that's a good thing!

So the original plan was to "wait it out" but we've been doing that since March and there has been no change in prices.  Our guests are antsy to book and need to know what it is going to cost them.  We are now looking at switching resorts so that guests can book now at a reasonable price.

I totally know what you mean.  I think I get bombarded by guests at least once a week asking what the plan is.  I feel really bad that I haven't been able to get them an answer yet and it's totally stressing me out.  I've actually scraped the Jan - Feb months and started looking at Apr/May.  I got a really good quote for May; however it falls over Mother's Day (May 13, 2012).  It's not the best timing, but definitely not a deal breaker for me.  The other option for you is to book with the higher rate (just so you have a date) and tell your guests to do shop around before committing.  I'd think the Jan 2012 prices would be more reasonable by September this year.  Good luck!

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
