    Thanks Natalie- that is really comforting to know it would still be a beautiful wedding if it weren't on the beach. Im the same way, but I just started worrying about this recently!
    yay. . . we're gradu-umtaded!!!

        That is so strange your TA said April is a rainy month. I did tons of research and found that April is their driest month with the least amount of rainfall, even less than what rains in Feb & March. That is the reason why i booked in April.

        O well, i pray for no rain! =)

          From what I remember a couple years a go when i was in Cancun (end of april) it rained a couple of days from about 9-10am and then was beautiful the rest of the day, so it didn't interrupt any outdoor plans. I hope it is still this way!!

            This is on my to do list over the next couple of weeks, too. I would love to see yours if you are willing to share it when you are finished with it. Thanks!

                  There is a dress code for men at the Maria Marie's French/Mexican restaurant (one of the best in my opinion). Men need to wear shoes and long pants. Women can pretty much wear whatever they want at any of the restaurants.

                  Note: Not all guests have access to the Chef's plate restaurant - only those who upgrade to ocean view/ocean front and have VIP treatment can go to this restaurant... so I didn't get to try it. They wanted us to pay 80$ per person x 7 nights for the upgrade.. they were out of their minds!

                    Hi everyone! I just got back from a week's stay at the Royal in PDC.

                    We witnessed 3 weddings during our stay.. one in the lobby garden (Mexican, local wedding) with like 100 guests.. it rained (spitted a bit) around 6h30, everyone went into the lobby for about 25 mins and when it was over, everyone went back outside.. not much harm done.

                    Another wedding was on the beach (near the beach entrance, beside the pool).. VERY close to all the beach chairs, no intimacy, in front of everyone.. if you want to get married on the beach.. you might want to rethink this one since the location isn't that great! Prepare to have everyone watching and possibly walking behind, etc.

                    The last wedding was very small in the gazebo. Less traffic in this area (at the end of the large courtyard near the beach, but not on it). This was my favourite set up by far! I'm attaching pictures to give you an idea of the way things look... I hope it helps a few of you.

                    Tips and advice:

                    - Get up early (6h30 max) to reserve chairs on beach and at pool

                    - Try to sit on the left side of the pool when facing beach or else you get shade all afternoon on the right side of pool (jacuzzi side)

                    - Restaurants are amazing, you will eat like queens and kings..

                    - Say NO to the sales meeting the first morning (they will say it's not timesharing but it is.. we were stuck there for 3 hours because they wanted us to be club members and they will deal you down but they lie lie lie so just refuse and don't get sucked in like us.)

                    - Do order room service it is absolutely yummy, especially breakfast (beats the buffet hands down). You can order bottles of wine or sparkling wine with room service no problem

                    - Very windy in the evenings, bring long sleeved shirts, especially if you want to eat at Pelicanos restaurant, which has no wind protection, it's all open

                    - 5th Avenue is 2 blocks away from the hotel. Coco bongo + other clubs are within a 5-min walk

                    - The shows SUCK, they are cheesy and corny and not worth it... plus they only start at 9h45 (a bit late).

                    - If you're a light sleeper and go to bed early, ask for your room to be far from the lobby.. the music and shows are so loud until at least 11pm so don't expect to sleep easily at this time

                    - Activity team at the beach is amazing.. Rosario, Adam and Oscar will stand out.. they get points if you give them good comments on your checkout survey, the employees get days off if they have enough points

                    - Asiana restaurant is amazing. The restaurants across the street at Gran Porto Real are good, but the service is one notch down from Royal.. but it can be different to go over there.

                    I guess that's about it.. if any of you have more questions, feel free. I'll try to check back in this thread often to help out! :)

                      That sounds like fun! I am definitely in for a Bride Cocktail, just let me know when and where! Our ceremony is at 5pm on the beach, garden reception! Yours?? We will be there from 5.10 to 5.18, and have 35 confirmed guests so far. Are all of your guests able to stay at The Royal?? I have 4 guests (and bridal party at that!) that had to book at the Gran Porto next door due to being booked...

                      Everyone probably knows this, but just in case you don't... If guests book Master Suite rooms at the Gran Porto next door they do not have to buy day passes to The Royal, they can come and go as they please! This is a cheaper route for guest staying a week, but it was cheaper for a couple of my 3-night guests to just get the basic room and pay the day pass fee.
