Was it too hot or were you comfortable? 3. Food recommendations for hor d'ourves and dinner please!!! (for the cocktail hour and reception)
  2. Gloria is fantastic!! I would have my wedding there (ERC) solely because of her, She was incredibly accomodating and as Cancun Trish said, EVERYONE that worked there acted as if they loved their jobs and wanted to make everything wonderful! I had the most amazing time and wedding. My guests, some of which are very critical and have stayed at impressive resorts all over the world, raved at the level of service and the resort in general.

  3. Hi Trish! I booked through my Travel Agent and she was able to give us a better price than booking online through Excellence. It was only $20 or 30 less a night, but I figures it adds up. She also got us incentives like, for every 10 rooms booked we got a room free, limited to two. (So our parents rooms were paid for.) and free welcome cocktail party for everyone. We had 44 people come with us, so 22 rooms. I'm not sure where you are located but I can give you the name and number of my travel agent. She was absolutely wonderful. I live in MD and she lives in NJ and I was able to work very we'l
  4. If you decide to change things I'd let them know as soon as you get there and be sure there isn't another wedding that day. I was fortunate to not have another wedding. If you want to have it in the beautiful Foyer, I'd HIGHLY suggest asking her if you can have fans sitting around. The foyer has large open windows on top but the walls go about half way up, so there is no air circulation on the bottom half of the room. In the daytime temps were 95+ with high humidity. Evening temps were 92 or so with high humidity. I think I read someone else asked for fans to be sitting around. I think t
  5. HNeal, I also asked Gloria's honest opinion about the heat and location. She said my guests would appreciate the air conditioning, and she was right. They all thanked me for having it indoors. Everyone was on the dancefloor Non stop too. I can't imagine they would have danced as much in the heat.
  6. Hi HNeal! I did get married in July (late July)but our reception was at Barcelona. The Foyer is beautiful and when I got there I almost changed my mind mid week until I stood out there for a while. It is very warm. I was so scared about having my reception where they have the buffet every day, thinking it would cheapen it. I was very wrong. I'm very glad I went with the indoor location with air conditioning. The beach was nice and breeze but anywhere else was absolutely scorching. When I was waiting to walk down the aisle, I stared sweating badly. Fortunately it was only for a sec.
  7. I had no issues with mosquitos but I did bring spray along, just in case DJ Mannia will keep your guests so busy, you probably won't have time for a 5 minute video!! Seriously, they kept everything moving so fast (complete with a Tequila shot conga line organized by our servers) that the reception whizzed by! Love and enjoy every minute of it!!

I just sent Gloria an email full of questions regarding questions about the bouquets, centerpieces, locations, menu, etc. (she already sent me the options to choose from) but I wanted to ask a few questions on here to see if you all knew! 1. Does anyone know how much DJ Mania costs? I read that that company is on that list of approved DJ's so there is no $500 fee correct? We aren't having a reception at home so I want it to be a

I was wondering if anyone used the extra room that is included in the package for the groom the night before the wedding? I know it says "based on availability" so I was wondering of couples actually got to use that option. I'm hoping to have that option and host a "girls sleepover" that night. We used the room for the groom and the resort was pretty packed. So much so, that they weren't able to upgr
  10. You are both going to be so happy with everything!! After I booked and figured out what I wanted in terms of location, time and even menu options, I emailed Gloria EVERYTHING. I like to have everything planned out as well. She was so wonderful to deal with and so thorough. I want to go back so badly! TealMarie, I can't wait to read your reviews!!!
  11. TealMarie, Your day is coming fast!!! Can't wait to hear all about it! Mandy
  12. Hi there iryna10! I got married there on July 27, I have to tell you, I don't think you'll get that price for 7 days with airfare. My guests, on average, paid $1550 per couple for the hotel (All inclusive, of course) for 4 days. I had 42 people come with us and most of my guests only stayed for 4 or 5 days, if that helps at all. There were very few that stayed longer. We flew out of Baltimore and airfare averaged about $400 per person round trip. That being said, I think the price for what you get at this resort is well worth it. Some of my guests have stayed at the best of the best
  13. So excited for you!!!!!!! Everything will be perfect. I can't wait to hear the details!
