  1. Signature drinks are free as long as they include the liquor they already have at the resort.

I didnt specify the terrace, I said Bamboo room - yet I thought the terrace being attached was the same thing. Not so... so now I have to find a new location for my reception. Has anyone used Castaways? Pilar sent me some pics - it looks ok - but still quite a large roo

The Festival Terrace is outside (with roof if I remember correctly) the Bamboo room and right next to both the Pergola and the Blue Beach Bar.

  5. We used the Bamboo Room for our reception and there were only 15-17 of us. It felt a little empty, only because we didn't have a dance floor/dancing. I loved the privacy though, and happy we stuck with it.
  6. I think she is telling you that because of the time of the sunset at that time of year. Click on this link to see the sunrise and sunset on your date: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/astronomy.html?n=923&month=11&year=2011&obj=sun&afl=-11&day=1

I promise you she has everything under control and whatever is still confusing you will fix when you arrive.

  8. Nicola, Pics are beautiful! I know how you feel, I just want to go back too!! We are going back next year for our anniversary, we got a couple of nights free included in our wedding package so we just have to use those

I do want a CD of pictuers so that I can make my own wedding album and video when I get back. Any advise for previous brides is helpful! I was considering adding an extra hour but ended up not to. We had the middle package too (Eternity). He came to my room about 1
  10. We used the resort photographer and could not have been happier! They were great! It turned out a lot cheaper for us than using an outside vendor. Here is their website: http://www.adventurephotosmx.com/ They have an office at the resort so you can meet with them before the wedding if you want to and discuss any special requests etc.
  11. The "dance club" aka Sports Bar, Scores, was open every night when we were there April 27 - May 4. We did the same thing, no traditional reception with first dance and all that, just dinner (with music playing from our ipod) and then went to the Lobby bar (my favorite) and the Sports Bar. Sounds like a good time line to me. I would just check the sunset to make sure you're getting enough light for pics and that it is not too hot during the ceremony. I too found it easier to negotiate trades and prices on the phone or while at the resort. Our ceremony started at 5:30 and the sun

We were only 15 guests + us but for us the private bar would have been over kill. We never had to wait for drinks/wine during the reception, our glasses were always full.

We didnt use any outside vendors, just everything through the package...and everyone was great. For some reason, no one likes talking about tips, but we tipped Pilar $100 the day after the wedding. If everything wasnt so great, we may have given less. Let me know what questions you have!
  15. Sanna, I have sent your a private message Our wedding was wonderful, I wouldn't have changed a thing!! You will be so happy with Now Jade! As I said in my message, please feel free to ask me tons of questions!
