    Hey

    I am in Toronto and am trying to plan a DW. My guests budgets are under 1000. Any reccomendations for all inclusive places? I am thinking Ciba or Mexico?

      You are probably looking for a 4 star resort.  Try the RIU resort chain.  They have 3-5+ star resorts.  I've stayed at a bunch of their 5 star and always had a great time.  Some of their properties have more than one hotel on site so guests can stay at whichever one suits their budget if you prefer to go to a more expensive one!  Good luck!

        Hmm that's a tough one. I had trouble finding anything in that range. You'll want off season for sure and east coast. DR?

          I'd say Dominican or Cuba... But, its gonna be tough - I'd get a few travel agents working on it and see what they can find!  We wanted to go cheaply, and we are going to Dominican for $1400.  Good luck!

            Hi Lyssa,

             

            I forgot to mention this, I went to Marlin Travel (usually found in Walmart).  They had a wedding specialist that I got connected with.  When you get a group rate it is for 10 or more guests.  Anyone who books this rate is guaranteed a one time price adjustment if the price goes up until 60 days before departure, which is a great bonus because they usually do go down $50-$200 dollars.  Another awesome thing about Marlin is that you can use Airmiles.  You can cash in 950 points for $100 dollars off your trip.  So there are a few ways to bring the cost down.  I had two different locations (Orangeville and Oakville) get group pricing for me for 4 different resorts and then picked the best one.  So we are going to Majestic Elegance May 5th-12th for $1380, which is amazing for this resort!  If you need any contacts the lady I am working with is amazing! So let me know :)

              To add to your choices, Air Canada has something along the same lines as Marlin Travel.  Only thing is you don't get to work with a travel agent, only the group person.  They have thins promotion going on.  http://www.aircanada...N_<wbr />HR.pdf

               

              I know the Bahia Principe Coba in Mexico is less than 1300$ and it's not the cheapest resort so there might be something along those lines for you.  

               

              And defintely book off season, thats the biggest price changer I find.

               

              Good luck!

                  OH MY GOODNESS!! Are you kidding me????  So basically the price went down and you told them you wanted to take the price drop and they gave you a hard time?  I would love to know more about this!

                      I would also like to know more about this? Is it Marlin Travel that  guarantees the price drop? We booked our vacation with Sunquest and were told they have a similar price drop guarantee. Has anyone else had any difficulties with this?
