I've been checking out this site for a while now but this is my first post! I figured since many of you will have already gone through the booking process that this may be the best place to pose my question.
My fiance and I are looking for a place in Montego Bay to get married the week of March 23-30, 2013 and we are having a really tough time trying to find a resort for under $1700 which isn't awful. I fell in love with the GPJ and GPLH, and the rates for booking this resort online were very reasonable ($1,700 and under for a week consistently from now until next year). Unfortunately our group rates that we have been quoted are AWFUL. Toronto to Montego Bay for a week has ranged from $2,299 to $2,422 for the week we are looking at. I'm really at a point where I'm not sure what to do next with this, as we don't have flexibility for changing the dates. What I'd like to know is:
- did anyone have better luck with pricing having their guests book online?
- did anyone find the group rates dropped closer to their wedding (ie - 6 months or less before)?
- If I'm totally out of my price point with thinking this hotel could ever be under $1,700 are there any other nice hotels which could be suggested within this price point?
Thanks so much!!
