    Thanks!
    For our group in July, outside would have probably worked because we are from Texas and came from hotter than Cancun weather was BUT my group really appreciated the A/C during the reception.

    We were originally planning on having both our coctail hour and reception/dance at the Bugabillias terrace due to extra costs to us to move it indoors (our coctail hour was planned outside too and it was all included with the number of roomnights - we couldn't have one outside and one inside without paying for a another event). Due to rain, we were able to move the reception/dance indoors for free so everyone was quite happy. The ballroom we had was off the Nizuk Lobby and overlooked the pools and the ocean. It was great to have the views and the A/C.

      How HOT is it exactly? Being from the south, I am used to steamy hot summer nights. I guess I was hoping it would be a little cooler, being right on the water...am I wrong?

            Did you get your flowers they are throwing from the resort or get them seal packed and brought from the US?

                Well....I got a response from my TA and one of her coleagues that speak spanish called the resort yesterday only to find out that they are strict on the 20% policy, and anything over that is strictly up to the wedding coordinator's discretion. I have already told one couple that they won't be able to come to the wedding (they kind of invited themselves anyway), and I have sent out a plea to the best man and hope they can change and stay at MP, otherwise he will not be the best man!

                  Personally, I thought it was great every night once the sun went down. The ocean breeze is amazing. It was HOT in the sun during the day. It wasn't that bad at all if you were in the shade with the breeze..... BUT, I wouldn't have wanted to have something during the day outside. We live in Austin, Texas where we had almost two months of over 100 degree days with humidity and no breeze. It was a nice break for us in July.

                  We got there 6 days before the wedding and checked out the site every afternoon starting at five. We were planning to have both the cocktail hour and the reception/dance outside starting at 5. We felt the coctail hour would of been a little hot but by 6 it really started getting more pleasant.

                  I hope this helps.

                    Good luck with this. Is there any way you can get some to change their minds? I have heard they are running some specials at Moon Palace for the fall, maybe that will extend to February.

                      Thanks a ton! That real helps. I was thinking it couldn't be any worse than Alabama in August, that's for sure!
