best way to book

Postby downunder » Wed Jan 28, 2015 9:20 pm

This will be my first trip to Desire and I would like advice on the best method to book.
Please advise if better to book a holiday at Pearl via an online site such as booking.com etc or direct with the property.
Thanks.

First you should check all of the available upcoming resort Promos to see if you could take advantage of any of them
List of current PROMO Deals

Next, since you are unlikely to get a package deal of resort+air from Oz it is important for you to know that the Desire Resorts don't discount as far as room only pricing
ie: you will find the same prices(within a dollar or two) whether you book direct, through a travel agent or through a on line place like you mentioned.

You can if you want book directly with the resort by using the forum link below and help support this forum

Last year we used Expedia with no issues. This year we booked through the resort directly. No issues so far, and doubt there will be any. I would follow Cokeman's advice. You may feel over your head if booking during big events. Than again, maybe not...depends on what you are in to.

Last year we booked through cheapcaribbean.com to combine airfare, transfer, and resort stay with no issues. However, this year, like D&C, we booked directly with the resort and have had no problems thus far.

We always book directly with the resort as we fly using reward points. In 10 trips we've never had an issue. Use the links on here to help Coke keep this forum going!

I just booked a trip for January via the link provided here. However, if I had booked through Right Connections, I would have airport transfers included. Do you think the resort will match that deal?
