        Could you post where you got this information specifically? I want it in writing to bring with me because they constantly try to change what they are charging when the promotions change. Is it that you will not be charged if you have booked your ROOM by April 1st or the actual services by then? Thanks for the info.

          we booked months ago for arrival on 31st March 2012 and yet Thomas Cook have sent us a letter saying that we are liable for this sales tax. Is this correct. They are saying that the Mexican Government have just introduced this tax. How can something that was offered to me as part of the holiday spec now attract a further tax

            Don't count on anything that Palace promises. Unless you have it in writing, and sometimes even then they do not care. I am convinced that I may get there and have a number of things that were promised as complimentary be at cost. They are basically charging you $165 to use your $1500 resort credit. I booked last year and have not heard it they plan to charge me the tax yet. Let us know if you hear anything and good luck.

              I found the website explaining that you will not be charged if you booked before April 1st.

                Thanks for the link! I'll be sure to print it out, along with many others!

                I suggest you print this page, dispute it now and bring it and all email correspondance with you in case you need to prove something later. I had them try to quickly change the website when I disputed the charge for the beach sound system. I won, because I had it in writing.

                I heard that Palace has pulled their resorts from Expedia.  I checked to see if it really was the case and I do not see palace resorts on Expedia's site.

                 

                I thought I would give you a heads up in case you were thinking of sending your weddings guests to expedia to book their trip.

                  I can't believe about the tax now for Palace Resorts- do you have to pay the tax upfront or is it just taken out of your credit?
