    That's a good question, lol. We were so busy that week, the only time we got to see the beach was during the TTD with Elizabeth, and that was about 15 minutes. I have no other comparison, so from what I can tell, it's pretty nice. Small but nice, nevertheless.

      Thanks for posting your review. Congratulations!!!
      Athough we didn't do an actual practice rehearsal, I got the group together for a 'welcome dinner' and then afterwards, walked them to the gazebo site and do a 'walk-through' of the ceremony and reception. That helped out alot, and guests got to know each other better.

We don't want to plan their entire vacation for them but want to do something as a group to show our appreciation for their attendance.
              Most of the guests except for two seniors went on the guided grayline tour. It was OK, not my kind of travel (I'm into adventerous tours), but I had to consider the age and physical range of my guests.

                Most of the guests except for two seniors went on the guided grayline tour. It was excellent, very historically interesting. The long drive to and back was pretty exhausting, and once there, there was alot of tourists and hawkers. I chose this trip considering the wide age and physical range of my guests.

                    If you see duplication/triplication of posts--Sorry! I don't know what happened.

                    THANK YOU, ladies for the nice compliments. I love my wedding and I am so glad it's over. Time to move on to the next challenge...planning a family. :-)

                      Great Review!! I am getting married there in October and now you have made me a little more relaxed! Was the Chilie Restruant outside by the pool? And for your iPod- did you hook it up to their speakers?
