      When we first got to Cancun, it was extremely windy and I was nervous about having the reception on the beach. We found out that they had bad storms prior to when we arrived. Then it was supposed to rain midweek, it didnt, but the winds again were extreme, the waves were breaking over the rock barriers and the water was dangerous. I guess there were storms way out in the ocean somewhere. I remember thinking I shouldnt have brought so many sundresses to wear! I probaly flashed dozens of people cause of the winds! But after that, no more wind! Just nice casual ocean breeze! The WC said that the high winds were not normal and that in worst case scenerios, they have had incidents where they have moved receptions of 250 ppl in the matter of 20 minutes. They are very prepared for those things. One really nice thing about the hotel location is that when its scorchering hot out, when you are on the resort, you have that ocean breeze, especially with the ocean on all 3 sides, you don't really notice how hot it really is. When you leave the resort, even walking down just 1 block, you really feel the heat. I was really happy we picked Himatsu beach. Its away from the resort, so you don't have people on their balconies watching all night. When we wanted to swim or lay out at the beach we always went to the other one on the tower side, it is much bigger. Himatsu is alot smaller of a beach, but for the reception, they clear everything out of it, and it is just so much more private and you get to watch the sun set on that side.

                    Thank you- that is very helpful! Its nice to know that Himatsu is more private and I never even thought of the sunset! You must have some beautiful pictures! I haven't decided where to have the reception yet- the beach would be so amazing though. During the dinner, are drinks supplied or is there somewhere nearby that guest can go get a cocktail?? I've only been to one destination wedding before so I'm not quite sure how this works. The wedding I was at, there was nowhere close by to get a drink and nothing was served at dinner which was disappointing...

                      We had our reception at himitsu as well, we loved it. So private and not that windy but a nice breeze. Its hot in a wedding dress! We decided to trade our cocktail hour in for 10 extra people for dinner, it was worth it and our family went to the bar in the tower after the ceremony, my dad gave the bartender a tip and they all had drinks before coming over to the reception while we went and took pictures. The servers at the reception were awesome! They kept everyone's glass full and very attentive.
