    Liers, liers pants on fire lol I saw them with my own eyes, I just could not get close enough to the wedding to take pictures. I did not want to be intrusive.
    Ugghhhhh this is the problem it is so hard because it seems like everything constantly changes. For example supposedly now its not an orange candle. Either way I still think the basic set up is beautiful and it is all anyone needs.

    Remember there is also a walmart down there so if you don't want to lug stuff down you can always pick up some stuff there.

    Also by the way about the weddings yes the Royal has multiple weddings a day.

      By the way I had the exact same experience on my site visit as yours.

      One thing I did not think about is the constant weddings going on. Was that annoying in any way? Does it affect anything for the guests?
      I hope it's not extra, that's one thing I forgot to ask Zulma when we met with her. I saw them set-up on the gazebo for a ceremony and they looked really nice. I'll email my WC in Michigan and see what she says.

      I think the only time other weddings are an annoyance is if they interfere with your own, for example more than 1 wedding on the beach at the same time. When we saw the 2 on the beach at the same time the 1 wedding was already at the dancing stage and the other was still eating dinner and the music of the other wedding was clearly heard during their dinner.

      Had the most AMAZING wedding at The Royal PDC on May 1, 2011

        Yeah you would think! If you're getting married on the gazebo at 4pm then another couple on the beach at 4pm then there is a chance of both reception being on hte beach at the same time. Or if a couple is getting married at 6pm and you at 4 then you might have the beach for a couple hours by yourself until the other reception starts.

        It is three different sections, but they are fairly close to each other. Like you this is something i was not told and when my fiance and i saw it we were a little disappointed. April, May, June, and November are their busiest months so during those times you're probably going to run into it. Zulma said they are doing 84 weddings this April.

          wow, 84 weddings this month! The Royal is THAT popular.

          I guess I am going to have some strangers standing around for my ceremony on the beach. I am not going to stress about it!

          Our reception is at the garden so wonder how much traffic in that area.

          Does anyone know what cocktail hour consist? I know it includes the cold cocktails but what about drinks? Is it open bar?

          ChicagoBride, can you tell me why you don't recommend Gran Porto? The majority of our guests are staying there.

            I was told that it is just champagne during cocktail hour and it would be $5 pp extra (real resort guest) to upgrade to open bar. A little silly in my opinion since we are at an AI. But then again I am not surprised since the Royal charges extra for EVERYTHING!!

              Of course!! They can do that since they can get 84 weddings a month.

                Ladi Di which garden did you pick? The largest garden is right in the middle of the resort and everyone has to walk by it to get to the restauants, pool and beach

                However you are enlcosed into that area but there is a lot of traffic around it. Than there the garden behind the gazebo which in my opion is much more private.


                For the cocktail hour once again liers liers pants on fire I was told it includes open bar of beer and any cocktails that they always offer at the hotel. I have this in writing so their policy must have once again changed since than.

                  I am not really sure what they gave me...I think maybe central garden? Eh!

                  Really? I wish I asked about it a long time ago so I could have it in writing!! Ugh so many inconsistencies. I am still waiting to pay off my final invoice. It was due last Wed but didn't get it Friday. There was some missing numbers so I am waiting for the correct invoice.

                    Well this was the very reason for us why we made the decision to not have our reception at the royal.

                    But what about if you want to go to the beach are there weddings taking up the whole beach area?

                    Also was it a pain to get beach chairs or pool chairs because it was so crowded?

                    Sorry last questions I swear lol any recommendation on the best times to go to dinner? With such a big group I would like to be able to recommend all these thing to all our guests.

                    We actually are very late eaters so how are the restaurants around 8pm?

                      Anyone know what the central beach location is like? This is where my WC says that my reception will be located.
