Also did you use a TA? I am still unsure of what we should do since we normally book on our own using bookit.com etc when finding a good deal. And since you have to pay for your flight in full when purchasing air tixs is it worth it to use the TA for rooms?
If we do not use a TA do we go through someone at the hotel or how do they know that 80% of my guest are staying there?
PS How was your wedding?
I paid for the wedding when I met with Jatziri. You can small changes if necessary, I added an additional guest to the reception when I met with her.
I did use a Travel Agent as I received a group rate for my guests. I found this to be easier than blocking rooms at the hotel. This way everything was taken care of, flight, hotel, transfers between airport and resort and seating selection on the flight.
Keep in mind, 80% of your guests are required to stay at the resort, if you have outside guests you will have to pay for a day pass for them to be able to gain access to the resort. There is no way around this and this is the case with all resorts.
My wedding was amazing, I just posted our video on another Riu forum.
