Hi ladies. Well - I think we've almost made our decision on a resort. It's between Azul Fives and Paradisus La Perla with Ocean Maya Royale thrown in at the tail end in case things don't work out.
My big question is have any of you ladies been told that you can't book your date without giving them the name of your travel agent, and whether or not your trip is booked? I just find that a bit odd. We're going to be a really and I mean REALLY small group, likely no more than 6, absolutely max of 10 and that includes hubby and I but 6 is more likely the number which means no group rate for us. I talked to our travel agent that we use and she said that since we don't qualify for a rate not to even think about booking right now. She said the prices to book for October are really overinflated at the moment so just to hold off. But when I tried to get the info from Fives they wanted to know if our trip was booked and who our agent is.
If they're going to force the issue, it will be a deal breaker for sure. The price will likely come down about $500 between now and when we plan to book but I want my date guaranteed.
