All resorts have websites that make them look like superb places to vacation, though experience has revealed that what one actually encounters may be very different than what the website promotes. How do you decide on which one to visit?
Our specialty in Caribbean destination weddings and our strong commitment to visit as many suitable resorts as we can when we personally travel to destinations, has given us a very strong awareness of what many resorts in Caribbean destinations offer, not only for clients who are thinking about a suitable resort for a destination wedding, but also for any couple or family wanting to choose a suitable adults-only resort or a particularly family-friendly resort for a vacation.
Whenever we travel, we build in two or three days where we arrange in advance to meet with a resort executive to be taken on a formal inspection of the hotel and grounds.
While we do ask to be shown where wedding locations and receptions typically take place, we also ask to be shown the restaurants, the pools, the bars, the beach, the spa, and the various types of rooms that the resorts offer. This way, we get a very in-depth look at each resort and, recognizing that the resort representative wants to show us only the best that the resort has to offer, we also, in walking around the resort, get a good opportunity to see what the resort is really like. That way we can report back on everything that the resort has to offer for our clients.
We try to do refresher visits every several years, recognizing that if resorts don't continually refurbish and repair, their quality can deteriorate. We also take advantage of familiarization trips offered by different tourist boards in Caribbean countries and by tour operators like Sunwing Vacations to take agents to Caribbean destinations and show them what the destination offers in terms of resorts and attractions.
Education and experience by personal visitation are important to us here at AlmonTravel: we can better advise our clients if we have actually been there.
Remember: using a travel agent usually does not usually cost any more than booking by yourself on the Internet but you have assistance to make an accurate booking and someone to look after you during the booking process, during the trip itself and after the trip if you have experienced any problems.
Got a group?
1) The group leader who organizes and pulls together the group (usually 10 or more adults) may be eligible for promotions/discounts – check with your agent.
2) All guests will be booked under the same number and should be located close together based on room category and availability.
3) Any changes to one booking by the supplier will be automatically reflected in all bookings.
4) The price per person can be lower than what is shown on the internet for individual bookings.http://almontravel.ca/destination-weddings.php
