Isn't this Las Caletas???

Recommended Posts

So I'm vacation planning and found this place in Negril. I click on weddings because I'm nosey, and look what photo they have as an example:

 

Click the image to open in full size.

 

Here's the site:

N I R V A N A * on * the * beach...

 

 

Isn't that the exact same pic that is (or was) on the Vallarta Adventures site?

 

I remember the couple plus that looks like my wedding...ROFL!

 

Am I wrong or how shady is that?

If they're the same resort chain a lot of times they will use standard/stock photos like that.

 

While me & my girlfriends were looking for somewhere to go this month we came across a lot of that!

Caletas isn't at all a chain though, it's not even a "place" you'd vacation - it's a beach! lol How strange, i totally remember that picture!

It's a stock photo then... companies can use whatever images they want for marketing, as long as they purchase the images.

 

Think about how many company websites you visit where it has a picture of the beautiful, happy employee who dresses oh-so professionally and always has a smile on their face with an upscale looking decor to the background. Then, when you call their customer service, it's been outsourced to the middle east....

 

same thing applies with weddings/vendors/venues...

I think Jamy's point was that actually IS caletas, or at least appears to be. All of the details are exactly as they were for all of our weddings ... I know many companies use stock photos or actors for marketing.

I am so happy that we have had so many actual LC weddings with pics, so we know that pic is the real deal.

 

I guess we could think of it as flattery, since Las Caletas is the best place in the world! smile72.gif

That's no stock photo! I'm quite sure LC wouldn't sell their pics for other venues to use as theirs, I think they are too protective of what they have to do that.

 

It bothers me because this is another legitimate (I think?) business. Shoot the resort has top ratings on Trip Advisor, that's how I found the site in the first place!

 

If it were a personal website and the pics were decoration it would be one thing, but to advertise weddings and put a pic of another country....that's like the Plaza Hotel in New York saying "we do weddings here" and putting a picture of a wedding at the Hyatt in New Orleans.....wtf?

 

I think I'll email Nicole for kicks :P

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
