The Special Wedding Group Rates have been secured and rooms have been blocked off with a room block, waiting for you to book your stay! There is a 3-night minimum stay for the rates. The rates are below. In addition to these rates, we have secured discounted round trip direct transfers from PUJ private to this group for only $40 per person.
PLEASE NOTE: Not every room category has been added to the room block. If you choose a room that is not part of the room block (either because it was never part of it or because all the other rooms in the block have been booked), I will have to ask the hotel to confirm both the availability of the room and if they will honor the rates. I will let you know once that has been confirmed or ask you to choose another category if it is not available. This resort sells out fast; to guarantee the room category of your choice, book asap!

To be considered part of Ana & Michael's Wedding Group, you must book through the group rates and not through any other method (even directly with the hotel). We have negotiated competitive group rates and secured a room block to make this as easy as possible. To participate in all of the wedding-related activities, you must stay at Paradisus Palma Real as part of the wedding group.
A refundable deposit in the amount of $100/room is required to reserve your room and book your stay. The $100 deposit will act as your RSVP for the wedding couple and they would appreciate it if you placed this deposit before May 1, 2019.
The deadline for the FULL balance to be paid is March 3, 2020. Cancellations must be received in writing 7 days prior to this date to be refundable.
You do not need to know all the parties in the room, the travel dates, or the room category; book your room based on what you think you will need and any changes can be made until the balance due date.
Any changes made to your booking after March 3, 2020, will be subject to a $75 change fee. Any changes requested after the balance due date must be paid for in full upfront even before they are confirmed. Name changes are deemed cancellations of the original booking and new bookings per the hotel; therefore, bookings are nontransferable after the due date of March 3, 2020, and will be charged accordingly. All late payments will be assessed a $25 penalty per every 5 business days the payment is late.
Para ser considerado parte del grupo de bodas de Ana y Michael, debe reservar a través de las tarifas grupales y no a través de ningún otro método (incluso directamente con el hotel). Hemos negociado tarifas competitivas para su grupo y aseguramos un bloque de habitaciones para que esto sea lo más fácil posible. Para participar en todas las actividades relacionadas con la boda, debe hospedarse en Paradisus Palma Real como parte del grupo de bodas.
Se requiere un depósito reembolsable de $100/habitación para reservar su habitación y reservar su estadía. El depósito de $ 100 actuará como su RSVP para los novios y le agradecerían que hiciera este depósito antes del 1 de mayo de 2019.
La fecha límite para el pago del saldo COMPLETO es el 3 de marzo de 2020.
Las cancelaciones se deben recibir por escrito 7 días antes de esta fecha para que sean reembolsables. No es necesario que tener los nombres de todas la personas, las fechas de viaje o la categoría de la habitación; reserve su habitación según lo que crea que necesitará y cualquier cambio puede hacerse hasta la fecha limite para pagar el saldo.
Cualquier cambio realizado en su reserva después del 3 de marzo de 2020 estará sujeto a un cargo por cambio de $75. Cualquier cambio solicitado después de la fecha de vencimiento del saldo debe pagarse por adelantado, incluso antes de que se confirme. Los cambios de nombre se consideran cancelaciones de la reserva original y nuevas reservas por el hotel; por lo tanto, las reservas no son transferibles después de la fecha de vencimiento del 3 de marzo de 2020 y se cobrarán en consecuencia. A todos los pagos atrasados se les aplicará una multa de $25 por cada 5 días hábiles de atraso.
Yes! You can structure your payments in one of 3 ways:
Any deposit or payments made towards bookings as part of wedding groups are fully refundable if requested in writing to email@example.com at least 7 days in advance of March 3, 2020. If a cancellation request is not made in time, all moneys paid towards travel will be nonrefundable.
Travel Insurance is available and highly recommended. Rates are per person, depending on the cost of the land-only portion of your trip. $69.00/person for trips up to $1,250/person, $79.00/person up to $2,000, and $99.00/person up to $2,500.. and so on. Travel Insurance can be added at any point; however, in order to receive the full benefit of the travel insurance, you must add it within 14 days of booking. Otherwise, the "Cancel For Any Reason" benefit will not apply and the only benefits will be for in-travel issues. Please note that once purchased, travel insurance is nonrefundable.
Yes! A passport book is needed to fly to and from the U.S. and the D.R. - please take the time now to locate your passport and check the expiration date; make sure it is valid for 6 months after your anticipated return date. Check this site for more passport info: https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/passports.html
Yes! We have arranged for private transfers at a discounted rate of $40 per person round trip that will be added to your invoice.
The weather in the D.R. is hot and humid with averages in the 80s year around. Humidity is lowest during Dec-Feb and increases the closer you get to August. Hurricane season starts in June and continues through November. There is a gentle breeze that comes off the ocean on most days, so make sure to pack plenty of sunscreen because the breeze makes it easy to forget just how hot and strong the sun really is!
You do not need an adapter for your electronics; the outlets in the D.R. will accept U.S. plugs.
I can assist you with booking excursions. Let us know me what kind of activities you'd like to do, how many people, and the date you'd like to go and we can get you rates.
Barefoot Bridal can assist with airfare. Please contact your TA with your travel dates, depature gateway, number of people traveling, and special requests at firstname.lastname@example.org with the wedding name. However BFB cannot guarantee that we have better rates than what you may find on your own.
Finding cheaper rates than the group rates online is very rare! However, if you have found cheaper rates, please take a screen shot that includes the final total price (with all taxes and fees), what the price includes (dates and room category), the website you found it on and the date and time on your computer and send it to email@example.com. We will ask the hotel for a price match. It may take several business days to hear back from the groups department for the match. We have been successful in the past in reducing entire group contracts, but hotels can also reject price matches due to having a group contract in place.
