Dear Travel Partners,
As with all businesses, we at Sandals Resorts have seen our energy costs escalate to far higher levels than were predicted when rates for 2008 and beyond were set. The associated energy costs at our resorts have increased substantially, resulting in the decision to pass on some of these extra costs to our guests.
We are therefore writing to advise you that effective January 1, 2008, we will be implementing an on-resort energy surcharge of $4.00 USD per person per night with a maximum charge of $8.00 USD per room per night to each Sandals Resort, Beaches Resort, Negril Gardens and Royal Plantation booking. This charge will remain separate from the base rate and will be added to all guests accounts at check out, regardless of when the holiday was booked.
The surcharge will be applied to all properties in Jamaica, St. Lucia, Antigua, Turks & Caicos and The Bahamas for all arrivals as of January 1, 2008 and onwards and is non-refundable.

This change affects all properties owned by Sandals--including Beaches, and other properties.

I think even if you have a group contract they can still change whatever surcharges or taxes they want. They just can't up the base rate you were quoted per person or per room. I know this is true for group airline rates. They can't up the base ticket price but they can increase the fuel surcharge or add on taxes even after the contract is signed. It usually says so on the contract so I would just double check it.
Now, I'll just have to add this tidbit of info as well. Bummer!
