    Well, here is my review. The total time to get through Cancun customs and the van ride to Tulum was about three hours. We were lucky and only had two other stops for our van – some people had to go in buses with 6 or 7 stops. When we finally arrived, we were so amazed. The resort was gorgeous. We checked in, and they told us they had upgraded us to an ocean-front, rather than ocean-view. Whoo hoo! We were in room 8239, overlooking Seaside Grill and the ceremony site.
    Our room was very nice. The bathroom was huge, and the bed was comfy – also big. Our mini-bar was stocked with drinks and Corona, and was restocked the whole week.
    Food: Portofino was very yummy. We ate there twice, once on our own and once with our families after the ceremony. The French restaurant was not so good. We loved the sushi and the Asian. World Caf© is the buffet-for dinner it is OK, it is much better for lunch and breakfast. Lunch is Seaside Grill or El Patio, both great.
    Wedding: Other than not being able to get in touch with Sandra for the first two days, everything went great. We picked out our cake, flowers and music during our meeting with her. Then the ceremony was very easy and fun. I am sending a link to my Snapfish account so you can see the site.

    Tips: Utilize your Do Not Disturb button. But, if they need you, they will knock and call you. Kind of annoying.
    Order bottled water in the restaurants. They tell you the water in the pitcher is OK, but just to be safe.
    Most romantic restaurant is the Italian, if you want that for your wedding night dinner – although, the French restaurant is adults-only. We had a few crying babies one night in Portofino.
    Let me know if you have any other specific questions. :)
    You will LOVE it!

            We did not use their photographer. That was my camera, and my sister-in-law taking the pictures. The folks who did use the staff photographer - well, everyone's photos are posted in the World Cafe for everyone to look through, they are all in a large binder. It was a little weird. But they looked good!
