We are flying from Philly! What is your date? Anyway, we are using Apple Vacations and are so happy with them. We did a room block and were able to get rates down to about $722 and that was for 8 nights ocean view. For 4 nights tropical, I think it is $400. We didn't do anything with airfare in regards to blocking that because it is so tempermental and the deposit for airfare blocking was ridiculous. We blocked 20 rooms for a $1000 deposit that will go towards our stay. Then our guests only had to pay a $50 deposit with nothing due until 130 days before travel. Then, for every 21 guest, we get the average price comped to us, as well as a credit of 1-9 rooms $100 credit, 10-19 rooms $200 credit and so on. I think that blocking rooms is the way to go, but definitely let guests book their own air.
