The beauty of using Berman Travel is Chris and I will be able to keep track of your itineraries easily, and can make sure our group is well taken care of. She is also able to shave a couple of dollars off the nightly rates for each room category which is great. Now, some of you might already have a travel agent you like to use. By all means – please do. Just do me a favor and shoot me a copy of your itinerary once locked in. Knowing when everyone plans to arrive/depart will assist me when planning extracurricular activities.
ACCOMODATIONS – The resort does tend to sell out, so we are encouraging everyone to book the accomodations now to ensure a bed has your name on it. The room rates vary depending on the category, with suites coming in at $164/per person per night and the regular casitas are $290/per person per night. You can go crazy and get a swim up casita for $345/per person per night if you want to ‘live large’ like P. Diddy. Please keep in mind these rates are PER PERSON/PER NIGHT – but cover all meals, drinks and 99% of the resort activities (spa services are extra). There will be a teeny tiny deposit required to hold the room, but nothing that should make anyone squirm.
AIRFARE – I would wait a bit on the airfare as the rates seem to be a bit high (no worries, they WILL come down) – unless there is a really good rate now – then go ahead and lock it in. We did estimates from San Francisco, Miami, New York, and DC a while back and found an average of $325 R/T for each person.
TRAVEL INSURANCE – We also recommend buying travel insurance. I usually don’t (kind of crazy girl I am), but the weather has been so crazy as of late it is better to be safe than sorry and you can cancel the trip up to the night before if needed. Of course, we hope that won’t happen or there will one really pissed off bride-to-be running loose in San Francisco.
