Caribe Royale tests 20% commissions

Orlando's 1,218-unit Caribe Royale Resort Suites & Villas, which has added 120 two-bedroom villas, is testing 20% commissions for travel agents based in three cities: Chicago, Boston and New York. The pilot program will last through March. The two latter properties pay 10%, but that policy may change when the pilot program is completed. Rates at the Caribe Royale include an American breakfast. The new villas can accommodate up to eight guests or a maximum of six adults. The Caribe Royale also has two pools, a water slide, supervised children's programs, three restaurants and a lobby bar. Rates through Easter for the one-bedroom, two-room suites are $129 to $199 per night; they are $229 to $329 for the new two-bedroom, two-bath vacation villas. Caribe Royale Resort.
