@helenk.....I just spoke with my travel agent and I am now really confused as to what to do......I haven't given a deposit to either Iberostar or Royalton but my travel agent was able to get me a Presidential Oceanview Suite at Royalton for $2800 which I had put a deposit on......of course I can't get it back. Also, the rates for my guests are really good at Royalton....approximately $1033 for 4 nights/5 days. The Iberostar rates are approximately $1530 for the guests. I really don't want my guests to spend more than they have to. It would also cost approximately $3500 for our stay at the Iberostar. With me trying to save on the cost all around, the Royalton is starting to look better again.
I am so confused so I am just going to sleep on it.....hopefully, I will make a decision soon.
As far as the date, we have chosen October 10, 2015 which the Royalton has available....no word from Iberostar on their availability.
