Change resorts

Hi all,

My TA called me today to tell me she didnt feel comfortable sending me to SGOR. This came due to several of her clients came back with bad thing to say about SGOR. We were changed to SDR where I will be getting married. I dont know much about SDR any advice would be great!

Thanks T1b52

I really can't help but to say that you seem to be taking this very well which will probably mean that your wedding will be perfect regardless :)

I'm confused...

Are you saying your Travel Agent is trying to tell you that without ASKING YOU she went ahead and changed your booking ???????


I''m 99.9 % certain that there was a mistake made or there was an overbooking and she's just trying to cover it up... There is NO WAY this is an acceptable situation if she is saying this has already been done........


I would NOT accept this whatsoever, and I'd seriously question the TA's integrity.

Blessings and respect to you, I hope you get to the bottom of this.

I am so sorry I was not very clear.. my TA asked us if it would be ok. After reading lots of posts about SDR I figured it was a step up from SGOR. I just wanted to know if it really was a better place to stay. Again so sorry for any confusion.

SDR is absolutely a step up from SGOR. We have been to SDR 7 times. You will love it! It is a beautiful place with a great staff. It has always been more expensive than SGOR. It is laid out so nicely, everything flows from the open-air lobby , huge patio, past the pools to the ocean. You can shuttle over to SGOR while you are there and you will see the difference. That is what we did years ago.

I hope you love it as much as we do. Have a great wedding!

You are going from a "classic" resort to a "signature" resort. There are definitely differences and you will LOVE SDR! Even though I was married at Sandals Ocho Rios , it was before it became the Grande, and it has lost something in the expansion in my opinion.

I, too, am a travel agent and you are going to have a great time. I think the reason for some of the complaints at SGOR is due to the management change going on there. Things should settle down and become good again, but sometimes with change comes problems...

Congrats & have a safe and happy trip!
