Rise in Prices for Mexico Hotels?

Recommended Posts

Help - Rising Hotel Rates?!


I'm planning on getting married at the Iberostar Tucan June 2013. I already have my deposit down for the date, so we're ready to rock and roll.


Unfortunately, I've seen a HUGE spike in the nightly rate. When we first were looking in August, the room rate was around $188 total, so $100/person. But now it's shot up to $286/night! This is way out of our guest's budget and I'm concerned that the prices won't go down.


Does anyone have any insight into this or are you experiencing the same thing? I'm wishing we had done the $200 room rate when we booked it, but at the time it was more expensive then what we were seeing online. If the rates stay that high, we'll have to move resorts and lose the deposit all together which would be horrible b/c I'm really in love with the Tucan :(


Thanks so much,

it is actually quite normal for room rates to go up.  Normally there is an EBB rate that is a reduced rate for early bookings.  It is why we recommend group blocks for weddings.  Not only to guarantee your rooms will be available to your guests but at a lower rate.


Most wedding guests will try to book 2-4 months before the wedding and by that time the hotel may even be sold out.  We have a hotel that has sold out for some weekends in May already and it had sold out by september!


You may see that the rate will get higher as you get closer to your wedding date and rooms get booked = less vacancies.


If you want to see what rates we can try to lock in try one of the BDW Travel Agents.  We Specialize in Destination weddings.  You can contact us HERE!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
