Q & A

Resort Questions:

Q:   Are all the rooms in the same building?

A:  The resort will assign rooms for the group block 1 day prior to arrival according to hotel availability.  A request must be submitted on each reservation to assign rooms as close as possible.

Q: Is there a dress code to follow?

A: Daily life is relaxed and casual and resort wear is your best option.  Each dining venue does have it’s own dress code which you will need to follow.

Q:  Is it possible to change the dates of arrival and or departure after I put down the deposit?

A:  Yes,  if any of the guests would like to deviate from what has been initially booked for your group this may be done on a case by case basis and will be done based on availability and current system pricing.

Q:  Is it possible to change guests names or to add on guests to my room after I put down the deposit?

A:  Yes, we do not require names until 60 days prior to arrival with the group block.   Name changes may be done at no charge until approximately 35 days prior to departure which is when documents are issued. If a name change occurs after documents are printed a $ 45.00 name change fee will need to be collected.  If someone is added to a room after April 1 and they need documents there will be a charge of $ 15.99 for overnight FED EX  shipping.

Immigration

After your plane has landed and you have exited to the immigration area, you will need to present your Mexican Tourist Card (which should be given to you at check-in before you leave for Mexico or during your flight by an attendant) and travel document to an immigration officer. You will need your Mexican Tourist Card to leave Cancun, so be sure to put it in a safe place. If you lose your Tourist Card while in Cancun, you have to obtain a copy or permission to leave from the Immigration office located at the airport at an additional cost.

 

Red light, Green light

 After passing through immigration, claim your luggage and proceed to the Customs area. Quite often, you will not be required to open your luggage, but be prepared to do so if asked by the customs officials. You will present your Customs Form to a Customs official. Then, you will press a button at a “traffic light”. Green light means go, red light means your luggage will be briefly searched.

Great! You have now cleared Customs, now what? As you exit the Customs area you will then see the APPLE VACATIONS  with a sign that says,  STEWART-TRAN WEDDING GROUP. The staff will be identifiable by their floral shirts as seen in the below photo.  They will greet arrivals holding welcome signs with the Apple Vacations logo. AMSTAR will meet and greet you here for your transfer to your host hotel.
