    So you all know
    I have been doubting EDR for a while
    and mow FMIL is saying "we are beach people, and the beach sucks" ... ugh! Why not speak up before!
    Ok - thats my rant! hahahahaha

    So I talked to my travel agent, and asked:
    Are tehre any other adult only places in our price range.
    I cant ask the guests to pay more - 40 have already booked (put down deposit)
    He (TA) said, if we change resorts they dont lose any money, but he said:
    THERE ARE NO OTHER ADULT ONLY ALL INCLUSIVES FOR OUR PRICE!

    I just cant believe that.

    Our guests paid $2055 from Calgary
    for next Nov 22-29.

    AND there is nothing in that range?? hmmmmmm
    is that right?

      The cheapest Adults Only I could find was the Aventura Spa Palace (beautiful!) for $2089 + tax

          I've heard mixed info about the EDR beach. I just read something the other day about how the beach is awesome because of what makes other people think it's bad. Something about being able to snorkel around the whales. I'll see if I can find the website again. I also want to go to a rocky beach. I've been on so many sandy beaches. Someone just posted pictures after returning from EDR that were amazing. I think you can show your FMIL stuff that will change her mind.

            we had our honeymoon at EDR and the beach didn't really bother us. The sandbags aren't the most beautiful things, but they don't get in your way if you want to swim or lay in the sun, etc... and it is nice that they are there because its like a barrier so you can snorkel in those areas.

            I love the beach and I didn't see it as a big deal at all, maybe if you were getting married ON the beach, then I might go elsewhere, but otherwise tell FMIL to suck it up, it's your wedding!

            the only other adults only I looked into was Royal Hideway and the price was up there, but EDR was expensive too, you might want to check that one out.

              Besides the sandbags, I think the EDR is absolutely perfect!

              I also have a concern about what my guests will think of them. Does anyone know if there are swimmable areas that don't have sandbags? Can you swim past the sandbags? ... I'm confused!

                I found when I was pricing all the resorts out that EDR was the cheapest 5 star resort (based on pricing from Calgary as well)
                the next cheapest was Royal PDC - that was about $200 more per guest.
                so yes - I think what your TA is telling you is the truth!!

                    Create a map for her that points out other public beaches. haha- if she doesn't provide any help, then don't help her back.

                    It's not their wedding, they have a choice on where to stay.
                    Happily married since 2008
