Don't know what to do about travel?!?

Recommended Posts

I just want to post that I am sooo confused and frustrated right now....

My wedding will be in Cabo in July of 2008. We are getting married at Casa del Mar, but we are not staying there.....as a matter of fact, I have no idea where we are staying at now!

First off, I have a timeshare at Cabo Villas, my sister and mother both have timeshares at Villa del Palmar, (actually my sister has 2 rooms there), and my future MIL has a timeshare at Sheraton Hacienda del Mar. So, I wanted to stay at Villa del Palmar so I can be with my mom and sister, so they can help me out with the wedding stuff and my son! So a friend referred me to her friend who is starting out a new "travel agent" biz. At our first meeting it sounded all good, she was looking in to all of the Villa Group resorts in Cabo - we needed 10 rooms and preferred all-inclusive. Now she says the Villa Group won't work with her on all-inclusive and now the first price she gave us for airfare is no longer available and is now much higher.

I really want to work out a group deal for my guests, and I really hoped we could all stay in the same hotel, but now I'm thinking we may just book our timeshare and hope it all works out.....

Any ideas, suggestions, comments.....

Any other nearby hotel to Villa del Palmar?

Thanks....Christa

Christa, I have never been to Cabo so I'm not going to be any help there. But if I were in your shoes I would hire a travel agent that knows what there are doing with travel south of the border. Planing your wedding is not the time to be giving a friends friend a start into the biz. You need an agent that you can place your trust in to get things done the way you want them.

 

just my .02

i hope your friend has not joined the travel agent pyramid like ytb..if so those

"agents" rarely know anything about booking travel.

 

ive never heard of them doing AI at those resorts...sometimes they will go a food credit though

offtopic2.gif it's funny you mention that tammy,i recently had a "friend" approah me about that same company ytb, asking if i'd be interested. my first thought was how could I be considered a qualified travel agent? and second, wow, this sounds a lot like a pyramid thing. i quickly said "no way!" I'm thankful to have found you through the forum, it's brought nothing but good things so far =)

Finally I have a name twin on here! Hi Christa!

 

Well, it sounds like you've determined your friend is not the way to go.

 

I was going to say that the Villa Group does offer an all-inclusive plan of some sort. We've stayed at Villa del Palmar & Villa del Arco and it was an option when we reserved our room. I can't recall the upcharge because we did not go that route.
