    So glad to hear this! i can't wait to hear your review and see your pictures.... i am getting married at the now sapphire on feb 19th and my reception is going to be on the beach terrace, we have about 56 people coming so far, daniela assured me they will make it private and told me not to worry.  did you see any weddings set up there? i'm nervous, but i'm sure it will be fine, i can't stress myself out! haha!

I can tell you this...we've ruled out Jade and Sapphire is in our top 2 (along with Azul Sensatori). Jade was very nice (loved the pool!) but it was a little too commercial for us. Sapphire definitely had more culture and depth, which we really liked. The tequila terrace opened up on our date which made it a contender because the beach terrace wasn't private enough. Sandra was very nice and gave a full tour and spent some time with us. Even being there in front of her though, still not all answers were totally clear. I find that they don't like to SAY much because it's going to be used against them. I took lots of pictures and hope to have them online soon to share!

      Jystar, when you say that the Tequilla Terrace opened up what do you mean. I spoke with Sandra last Friday the 26th and she said that they were doing some renovations to it. Can you let me know if that has been done yet. She said something about the completion date being Dec 4th, but it would be awesome to know that it is complete.

      Thanks!!!

        When I got married there our deposit went towards the total cost of the wedding but that may have changed. I wouldn't think so. I would get her to clarify.

        A deposit is required to confirm and hold the requested wedding date. Deposit of $500.00 USD is required. This deposit is not refundable and it is not deductible of any of the Wedding Packages

         

        The whole "not deductible of any of the wedding packages" phrase confuses me. Does the $500 deposit go towards the total balance of your package plus extra meals/flowers/etc? Thanks!

          We got married on the terrace and there was another wedding at the beach terrace and we never saw or heard them. I did get a glimpse though while we were taking pictures and it was beautiful.

            in the emails/paperwork that i received it says that the deposit will applied towards the wedding package or any extras that we add.  i better have that highlighted when i go there in 2 months just in case! haha! :)

             

            thanks angie! i'm sure it will be perfectly fine, with all my guests there i have a feeling that is all i am going to be paying attention to, we have about 58 people booked and few more maybes.... i just can't wait! a little over 2 more months to go! :)

                    The beach terrace is nice, it really is. It's just right next to the pool (which I hadn't noticed in other pictures). Just make sure they give you a good plan for how they're going to block it off (and when).

                      thank you soooooooo much for your review and for your pictures! i am so excited! our reception will be later in the afternoon (our ceremony is at 5) so i figure there will be less people in the pools and stuff at that time, i'm sure there will be some people around and looking but i probably won't even notice that during the reception since we will have close to 60 people there...  the resort looks beautiful (all of them did!)!  i'll have to ask daniela how they keep the area blocked off for receptions.  i should be getting my answers shortly, almost 2 months to go! :)

                       

                      did you guys decide on a place yet since your site visits??? all of the places you went to look so pretty!
