    Anyways, I guess I will be the test case because I'm telling Michael and the resort that I'm not paying a breach of contract fee. I'm an attorney - and I write/review contracts everyday. What I do know is that I am not, and have never been, a party to a contract with Michael. His contract is with the Riu - not me. To charge me a "breach of contract fee" - with the alternative being Michael's interruption and sabotaging of pictures is nothing more than extortion. I won't stand for it.

    My guess is that when someone stands up to him/them, they'll have back off. The resort is already nickel and diming me for "included" options. There's no way I'm paying this ridiculous fee.

    Sorry - I'll get off my soap box ... I just can't believe that they're making people do this.

    I plan on doing the same...and I'll be there in April - so I'll let you know how it goes! :)
    Married April 4, 2008 at the Riu Ocho Rios!

        Please let me know how it goes in taking a stand to the "breach of contract" fee. Let me know if it works.

        Hopefully my Fiance's friend will attend and take pics as well so I won't have to deal with any "breach" fee, she is just one of the guests taking pics.
