    Hey all,

    Having a tight budget, I spent A LOT of time trying to figure out where to get married that's nice, but affordable. In the end I chose the Buenaventura and went with their wedding package.
    I realize there are nicer choices, but as I said, we don't want to spend a fortune, so this seemed like a good 'middle of the road' choice.

    I just want to know if anyone is getting married there, has gotten married there, or seen a wedding there, and can tell me a bit about it, share some photo's, or tell me what to expect.

    I understand the hotel is going through renovations right now, so they should be all done and the place looking nice when we get there in March!

      Have you tried searching for Buenaventura on the forum yet? I did, and got a few results that might help.

        Hi Sunshine,
        I was wondering what you thought out about Buenaventura? How was your wedding? I'm looking to have mine there in June 2009 and would love to know what you think.

          We looked into Buena Ventura and thought it was a great deal, just close to town and near the malecon. It is being renovated or is done so the upgrades should be nice. We opted for it's sister property - Villa Premeire only because we are having a small wedding. But we are recommending the place to guests who want a more economical option. The wedding coordinator and staff have been great so far, very helpful and accomodating - Susana and Fabiola.

          I've been to both Buenaventura and the Villa Premiere. We spent out honeymoon in October 07 at the Buenaventura and although there was lots of constructions going on we felt that it was a great choice for a honeymoon. It's a smaller resort so it seems it's more on a personal level. For instance the servers and bartenders all knew us as the newly weds and would joke/visit with us constantly. We also met some other guest staying at the resort and had dinner with them a night or 2 and made a huge volleyball tournament with all the guests at the resort. So much fun.

          The location is key with this resort being so close to the malecon and be sure to bring your walking shoes! The rooms are already renovated and are nice and clean.

          hammocks on the beach! Very nice touch and super relaxing.

          The Premier on the other hand is more elite and a 5 star I would say. Much more quiet and laid back. The pool was never busy when we were there. The food is amazing though and totally take advantage of the spa services. Sorry i don't have any photos of this resort, that was back in the day of non-digital cameras lol

          if you have any questions I could help out with, feel free to PM me

            Rosa - if you could post pictures when you get back, that would be terrific!

            There are soooo many hotels in PV, it's impossible for me to choose one sight unseen. We're going to head down in November around Veterans day (when Rosa's getting married!) to scout out officially, and I'd like to check out both of these properties. We may have some kids, so if they're neighboring it woudl be really convenient and give our guests a range of price points without completely stretching everyone out...

              I just got back from PV and originally we were going to have our wedding at the Buenaventura and we ended up switching locations. First off, dealing with the wedding coordinator was a nightmare! Second, when we showed up the hotel was nothing like the pics on the website. The pool area and beach is nice, but the inside of the hotel is not at all what we expected. We ended up switching to the Presidente Intercontinental. The resort is beautiful and the coordinator is great! The wedding package is $500 and the rooms are pretty affordable too. I have pics of both hotels, pm me if you have any questions.
