Hi

 

I'm getting married at the Dreams Tulum, and I booked with a travel agent. My carrier turned out to be Air Canada because of all the cities are guests are flying out of. I guess WestJet and and Air Transat didn't offer flights from all our requested cities in November 2012.   Having said this, I only know what Air Canada offers but I'm sure it would be similar to Westjet.  We received a free room for every 6 double occupancy (2 guests per room) booked. We have 18 double occupancy rooms booked, and we also have 2 single occupancy rooms as well.  The single occupancy rooms do not count towards a free one....even when we initially had 3 singles and tried negotiating.  In the end, we are receiving 3 free rooms, which is the maximum that they will allow even if we had booked another 6 rooms, you do not get a 4th room for free.  

 

You are able to use the credit to actually grant yourself or others free rooms or you can divide it amongst all the guests that booked the rooms with your agent.  The monetary value of the credit is the price for your travel agency to purchase a basic room for 2 people from the resort NOT INCLUDING taxes. For example, if the basic room costs YOU $1500 plus taxes per person but your travel agency buys it for $1400 per person plus tax from Air Canada Vacations or whoever, then your free room is worth $2800.  So....the dollar value that you get for free is $2800, which you can apply to the cost of the rooms.  

 

In your situation, it sounds like to me that you would get 2 free rooms if Westjet does the same thing as Air Canada. I hope this helps.

how does your travel agent not know how many free rooms you will get? 

 

did you book any sort of group contract or do a group booking where it said you were going to get free rooms?  for our clients, it is written into the contract exactly what the free amenities will be.

 

here are the terms and conditions of the promo from the AMResorts webaite...hope this helps.

she isnt sure because we have 10 double rooms and 2 single occupancy rooms so we are trying to see if they will honor the single rooms in the promo or not. as it stands she knows we get one free room. hopefully they will count the singles towards it.

I was told that the single rooms cannot count as one of the 5 rooms BUT a single room could be the free room.  So if you have five double rooms booked, you will get comped a single rate room.

If your final count ends up being 10 double and 2 single...maybe the two single rooms could be the free rooms because otherwise you will get one double room free (5 paid double rooms is 6th double room free) and then not have enough double rooms to get a second room free because you will only have 4 double rooms left and 2 singles.

One free room based on double for three nights at 160/pppn would be 320.00*3=960.00 back.  Two free single rooms would be 205.00*3=615.00 + 205.00*3-615.00 which would be 1230.00.

Has anyone gone through the process of receiving this promotion?  We have 15 rooms booked at Dreams Puerto Aventuras in September.  Therefore, we should be receiving 3 free rooms.  We want to apply the value of the rooms towards our Honeymoon suite.  However, we can not get anything in writing or information in regards to the amount we will be credited or the timeframe and manner with which we will receive the credit.  Any information would be great!!!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
