    Basically it was the same stuff that was said on trip advisor.. they had two brides that were married there in the last two weeks that were hysterical re: the service? Im just torn because I dont know what to do... El Dorado was our first choice initially (Besides pricing) but they are willing to match it, which sounds too good to be true!

      OH no! This is soooo upsetting. I didn't even know TripAdvisor had comments on the new Sappire. What a shame because my FI and I spent countless hours on TripAdvisor looking for the perfect resort and Paradisus had such great reviews. I wish there was as least ONE good review!

I have sent e-mails for a week and have gotten no response. I have to order printed itineraries asap. If you talk to one of them, would you mind asking? Thanks :)
          I'm sorry, I didn't see this until now, I'm glad you were able to get your questions answered!

SOOO stressed.
          Really?? I checked out the reviews and while they are not very good, I think that during a transition like this, some problems are to be expected. AM won't let the resort tank, but like any ownership change it may take a couple of months to get all of the kinks worked out and to teach the staff the way that AM does things at their resorts. I didn't look to see when your wedding is, but if you have some time, you may want to hold off and see what happens. But I completely understand too :)

            I think im going to El Dorado... they matched our prices. I am not 100% sure, because I love the Paradisus when we went and visited it, just really dont know what im going to do.

              oh Lauren, I don't envy your decision that you will have to make but do what you feel is right. If you think you will be stressing out for 6 months then it's probably not worth it. I think Jill is probably right about the kinks though. It's always hard working for someone new and hopefully that's all it is and everything will be perfect by your wedding.

                Isn't El Dorado adults only?

                I agree with Jill, so I am going to give it some time and see what happens but you need to do what you are comfortable with. After all, it is your wedding!

                  Hi ladies - I've been keeping up on the TripAdvisors for the resort as well since we will be going there for a friend's wedding next weekend (memorial day) - and I have to say I am a little nervous about staying at this resort as a guest - I can only imagine what the bride is going through. She had no idea what was going on until I told her a couple weeks ago.

                  I promise to report back to you as soon as I get back - with a full report - as a bride and as a guest :)
