We were looking into booking a special with Marriott with buy 4 nights get 3 free. I spent over a 1/2 hour on the phone with a booking rep and they seemed as clueless as I am about how they charge for this. Anyone have experience with any of these questions, or can direct me to an email address for the resort (I could not locate one)?
1. The rate is $259 / night for the 2 bedroom villa we are looking at for 7 nights for 4 people. I figure that to be $259 * 4 nights (3 free) = $1036 plus taxes. Our estimated total came in at almost $3000 after my confirm was emailed to me.
2. The rep said they would deduct the 3 nights at time checking out, but she said I might still have to pay the taxes and fees on those 3 free nights. Does that seem right?
3. The bill lists out $80 per night for the two extra people per room ($40 per person). When booking a 2 bedroom villa would there actually be a $40 per person extra fee?
4. Does anyone know the tax rate for staying at a resort in Saint Kitts? Does Marriott add another rate on top of the government tax rate?
I would like to stay at this resort, but it is hard to plan for it when I don't know what we'll ultimately pay. I know there are also hefty internet fees ($75 for the week) and 12.5% automatic gratuity fees, etc... Buying 4 nights and getting 3 free seems like a great deal but I wonder if it really isn't. Any help with these questions or pointing me in the right direction (calling Marriott reservations didn't help much) is appreciated.
