Boo...that's kinda lame lol. Speaking of lame...is it true that they don't play music by the pool area? Darnit, the Royal is so amazing, I just wish they would do those extra things that you would expect from a 5 star like heating the pool in the fall/winter and keeping bars open later. Secrets Capri didnt heat their pool either and it was brrrr super cold in October

I now it does kind of suck that the bars don't stay open late. I mean even till 2am. And ya the not heating of the pool is a bummer. I totally agree you would think that a 5 start hotel would do these things.

Msglave - Sorry we went down I was not looking for center pieces but I don't remember really seeing anything. Although I love what kendra did and the walmart and mega super store would probably have everything that you need if you did not want to lug everything down with you.

Thanks Jesmcan! I agree, I think the bars should be open until at least 2am. I was nervous because I was told my reception has to end by 10pm, but at least we'll have someplace to go until midnight.

Oh ya def! and I am not sure what day your wedding is on but on Fridays the Blue parrot which is just a short walk from the resort has a fire dance show at 11 , 11:30pm and they stay open late. Especially if you go with a big group they usually will give you great prices on the drinks.

don't worry, it's one of those places that you kind of have to look out for because it's not right on 5th ave.

if you walk down 5th Avenue from the hotel (towards the ferry terminal) and turn left, going towards the water at Calle 10 or 12, you should find it.

Here's a map, hope it helps!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
