Need new resort…any ideas?? | Debbie's Caribbean Resort Reviews Forums

We were planning on a Iberostar Varadero wedding, but they are very limited in number of rooms left and have no time spots left for a wedding ceremony during the time period we were looking for :(. Anyone have any ideas on a nice resort, either Cuba, DR, Jamaica that offers free or relatively good priced wedding packages and is not too expensive to stay at (as I am trying to keep the cost down for my guests)?? Any help would be appreciated at this point as the time is getting limited on getting this booked…..

What time of year are you looking??? Jamaica usually does offer free weddings but most of the resorts are quite pricey. You would have to let us know the time period so we can give you a better answer.

As for the IV.. I’ve heard that you can pay extra to have a ceremony after the "available times." I have no idea how much it is or if it would be available. Have you talked to Belkis yourself? Sometimes companies release more rooms closer to the date of travel (other people back out). I know for our trip, Signature and Transat are flying at almost the same time down there. Perhaps you’d be able to fit everyone in breaking your group up between charters. As the PP wrote, let us know when you’re travelling. Good luck.


Superclubs breezes Varadero. I was a great resort for our wedding. There is no problems with the time for the wedding. At least we didn’t run into that. We had a 4:00 time in November. We had less than 3 months notice to book it too. If you want more info. just PM me.

The wedding at IV isn’t free though correct? So your willing to pay a certain amount for your wedding? Do you have kids going? We also considered the Sandals Royal Hiscacos when we were looking around. Have you ruled out Mexico totally?

Have you called or emailed a travel agency that has a wedding consultant specialist on staff? It doesn’t cost anything to inquire. Here is the wedding site:
