Deal of Fortune 5 Sun deal on Cheap Caribbean

Can anyone advise what hotels they’ve gotten on this deal? It states you will get Iberostar Grand Hotel Bavarro, Secrets Royal Beach, Secrets Cap Cana it Breathless Punta Cana. Just searching on dates for those for hotels, there seems to be a pretty significant price difference between them. Just wondering what some of you have received in the past if you’ve booked this deal. It’s a good deal and really any of them would be fine, just curious.Thanks in advance

My wife and I did this deal and we got Breathless. We got back about a week ago. We saved a few hundred dollars over just booking Breathless. I would have been happy with any of the resorts so I didn't have a problem booking it. Cheap Caribbean let us know we got Breathless a week in advance but some people don't find out until they get to the airport.

I was happy with the deal and wouldn't hesitate to do the deal again. Breathless was great. Looking at other posts on this, I would guess people get Breathless about 70% of the time and Secrets Royal Beach the other 30%. A handful of people may get Secrets Cap Cana and nobody gets Iberostar Grand because it isn't in the AM Resorts group like the others.

We go next Tuesday, and we got a confirmation email 7 days before departure telling us we were going to Breathless. I will write a review when we return.

We are going July 6-12 on this deal. Emailed breathless last week and they confirmed we are booked with them. Cheap Caribbean should remove iberostar Grand from the list since I have never seen anyone in this forum or other forums who went to IG on this deal . Cheap Caribbean acts like they do not know where you are going until 7 days out but they book you immediately and keep you in suspense until

The last minute.

I've recently heard of people being switched the day of. Just depends on last minute bookings sometimes. If a large group books a resort last minute then you can be sent to another resort.

Search this topic - - there's a string with several hundered entries! . . . I've read them all! Let me summarize: You will never get Iberostar. Most people get Breathless. From time to time there is a little batch of people going to the other two locations. Booking codes have nothing to do with your assignment. ANY of the three are great locations and you'll be happy to made the choice! If you can't handle the wait, some of us called the resort to ask about an upgrade - - this way you can find out if you are in their cue. We found out we were Breathless about 2 months in advance this way . . . I just wouldn't bank on it not changing.

Go for it and have fun saving money!

Good summary! We used this deal for riviera maya last year and ended up at Breathless puerto Morelos. Resort was great but beach is horrible. Using the deal

This July for Punta Cana . Don’t think

Any of the four choices would disappoint.

I have also read a lot of the reviews for this deal and no one has every gotten IG!
