Do you know of any deals that my FI and I could get for spending a week at a resort this winter when we plan on getting married at that same resort next winter?
Let me know any suggestions or advise!!!
Thank you so much xoxox
We just came back from 4 nights at Hacienda Tres Rios, our accommodation venue of choice for our our Nov 2013 wedding. I would DEFINITELY recommend a site visit, and why spend more than you need to?? We did ours using a Groupon deal (actually, Living Social, but you get the idea) that I found-- 2 adults and 2 kids (my FI has two) for 5 days/4 nights, all-inclusive, with upgraded room and late check-out for about $999.
So, checkout Groupon/Living Social/Bloomspot-type websites for the best deals, but I know places like CheapCarribean.com, Travelzoo.com, and my favorite search engine, Kayak.com can also offer good deals. If you already have a WC and/or TA that you plan to use, ask him/her-- who knows, maybe they can negotiate a deal with the resort. (I know Hacienda Tres Rios offered a special rate for site visits, but I didn't find out about that till after I booked the Living Social deal-- oh well!).
Good luck! A site visit will do you a world of good, plus it's not hard to enjoy Mexico in the middle of winter
