    deesanders,

    I'm chatting with a bride right now that got a quote for Now Larimar for dates in Febuary (high season) for land and air including tax for 7 nights $1388 per person (group rate). You should get much less than that since yours is in august!

     

    Acutie,

    Let me know if you can work in the 6th room promo...

     

    Moniwoni,

    I'm sooo jealous! ha! Exciting stuff for you... I'm sure your wedding will be great, I can't wait for your review!

        DeeSanders:That information is from the resort directly.  She quoted me $126 per night for garden view and around 160 for ocean view per person.  That does not include transfers etc.  My TA intially was much higher at 160/211 per person.  I am still not sure if I will be using her as she is insisting that she can't find a lower price.  That seems to be more comprable to what you are hearing. I am not convinced yet that I am going to get my best rate from a TA.  I have spoken to several and I am getting prices all over the place for all resorts. The main one I have been working with told me that the Magestic is way out our price range but from what you have been quoted it is cheaper!!! That is/was my first choice.  My TA works mostly with Amresorts, so I guess she would say that. This is why I am having a hard time trusting them.  I listed the email for Sorangel who was my direct contact at the resort in a post above. Try dealing with her directly and see what you get.

         

        JB: I had looked at Ocean Blue early on but really wanted to go with the Magestic or Amresorts.  I will check it out again.  Have you gotten any pricing on the Magestic?

         

        Jetsettin:My TA said prices would be around $600-700 for April 2012, that is mostly from Denver and Kansas City. Although the poor girls right now are paying close to $1000! Hope that changes quickly.  Good luck.

          Acutie,

           

          I looked into the Majestic before and the only quote I can give you is not a group rate but for a couple for 7nights land with transfer is $1936. I guess that's about $138 pp/pn. Maybe the group rate would be better? Atleast you have something to compare it to... Hope that helps!

            JB,

            Thanks for the info.  I guess that price is pretty reasonable, although I am still pretty set on the NOW.  My photographer, Phil, says I would love the Majestic and he raves about how amazing it is. I just feel like they do soooo many weddings per day and I was hoping for something a bit more intimate.  I will spend some time checking out Ocean Blue either tonight or tomorrow too.

             

            Moni Woni: Can you tell me what the difference is between the room you booked and the basic partial ocean view? Do you know will you be close to your family in this room or pretty far?  Also, when you booked your date, did they get back to you immediately to say they received your credit card info? As the hours go by I am getting more and more worried when I haven't heard back.  All I am thinking is Identity theft, ha ha!

              That's part of the reason why I steered clear of Majestic and their wedding package doesn't include a private reception and for the amount of guests I was expecting it would cost a lot to pay for privatizing the restaurant/venue and paying per person for dinner and drinks. Which really doesn't make sense that you have to pay extra for that at an all-inclusive! If I get the $119 rate plus the 6th room free I will be booking same day, and I will definitely let you know so you can get it as well. No reason for them to charge you more if we only have a difference of a week.

                Mine includes private transfers, I guess I still need to look into it.

                 

                My TA was surprised that the Majestic was so cheap. She also said that since NOW wasn't open yet that the dates for August 2012 aren't even available on the NOW website so that is why my prices are a little high but she also said that these prices will be going down. She also mentioned that if we did lock in on a price and buy the insurance, if the price drops then we would get the difference back! :)

                  JB, Do you have the wedding information on the Ocean Blue Punta Cana?? Do they have different packages?

                    deesanders,

                     

                    They're wedding packages are pretty decent and if you're looking at about 40 guests they have an all-iclusive package that covers that. I'll e-mail it to you...

                      Thanks JB, I just got it!! Did they send you any pics of it?? Prices look amazing!!

                       

                      Is this an adults only resort or do they except children?

                       

                      Also what are the prices you are getting from them?
