    Picking the location has to be the most difficult decision and I can't wait to make a decision and move on to the fun part!!! Good luck to y'all and I'm determined to pick somewhere before the New Year!

      Hey - are you guys still thinking about this place? I just saw a comment on tripadvisor that said "STAY AWAY!" The post said the construction is terrible.

      We're planning a Jan '09 wedding - do you think the construction will be done by then?

        I decided not to go with this resort since I'm getting married in June '08 but I bet by Jan '09 the kinks will be worked out.

            I was thinking of having all my guests stay there for my wedding in May '08, although the wedding will be at Al Cielo, off property. I'm debating btwn there and Barcelo Maya Palace - the Barcelo's ocean area is calmer and clearer like the Caribbean, and it is close to my wedding site and sites such as Tulum, but Princess is SO much cheaper!
            I'm hoping the kinks will be worked out by then.

            Here are current photos:
            Picasa Web Albums - Mike - grand sunset ...

            Other people on the tripadvisor forums posted more mixed reviews - they said beautiful property, good food, nice pools, nice rooms, but lacking all the necessary amenities as of yet, yet somehow it came of a tiny bit more positive than the one guy who posted a review.

                That's awesome! Please let me know what you think after you see it!!

                I did look at Tripadvisor again and saw better results - it seems like they get things built quick down there (we were at a different resort last week and I couldn't believe how fast the addition went up) so in a year they should be more settled - right?!

                We're planning on using a travel agent - does anyone have any idea how far in advance they have pricing available? We're doing a Jan '09 wedding and funjet and apple don't go out that far...

                  Does anyone know the pricing for private events such as a private dinner at one of their restaurants? The WC is not responding to my emails...

                      I know I was thinking the same this. I'd love to hear about this place!
