ROYAL PLAYA DEL CARMEN BRIDES: were kids allowed for the day? ...and other questions

Recommended Posts

Michelle, about the Gran Porto guests...  You may have the guests who are staying there check with the concierge when they check in to see if they can get an upgrade.  FI's 2 aunts & grandma stayed at the GPR because they had his 13 year old cousin come with them.  Well when they got there the concierge told them if they upgraded to an ocean view suite then they could get bracelets that were good for all inclusive access to The Royal as well.  I'm not sure if it was free with the suite upgrade or if it was for a small fee but they were so stoked and said the price to upgrade and have access to both resorts was well worth it.  The 13 year old couldn't come over of course but they all took turns hanging out at the GPR beach with her while the others would come to The Royal.  May be something to check into.

Welcome all new Brides!!

 

So glad to see so many newcomers!!

 

As most of you have read - always confirm with your WC bc rules can be changed and it depends on who you get. We all have varying responses but the most common theme is that we asked.

 

I can't wait to hear about everyone's planning!! WOW, two brides in February and a couple next month! I just love weddings. LOL... welcome.gif

Brides- when you meet with your onsite wedding coordinator the day you get there, remember to re-verify all of your appointments, reservations with the dates and times they are supposed to be!  We had a candle light beach dinner scheduled one day for 8:00 and when we got there they said we were supposed to be there at 7:00!  Luckily it went just like RB said hers did, they were super accommodating and kept apologizing to us and we were apologizing to them lol it was all great and super romantic but we felt bad because we caught them off guard and they had to rush to put a table out on the beach.  Also we had a couples massage for what we thought was 4:00 but the Spa had us down for 4:30. 

So just remember to make sure you have all your dates/times right as soon as you get there to avoid any mishaps.  But if there are some hiccups The Royal is eager to keep the brides happy.

 

Thanks for that reminder!! Glad to hear it all worked out even with the different times. =) Great review by the way. Everything looked amazing. You planned a beautiful wedding. I love that they have a Walmart! That cracks me up!!

On a side note: My TA is doing a site visit next month. Does anyone have any picture requests? I asked her to take pics of the ballrooms (salons hehehe). For any brides that need more pics if they are not planning on a site visit - let me know!!

 

I'm compiling a list. =)

AMAZING!  Thanks for the flower shop!  What an amazing idea.  $40 is a great steal considering they want to charge $80 a piece for the bouquets.  I also am almost done with my card box and wanted to share in case anyone else wanted to make their own.  I basically just bought a paper mache box from Hobby Lobby for $3.00, 6 pieces of scrapbook paper for $2.00, A wooden "M" for $2.00, (had the black paint and small letters already), the ribbon $1.00 (which I am using to put size tags on the flip flips), and self adhesive Jewels (2 pks) - $4.00.  So for approx $12.00 I have a custom card box.

We got them at Floweria Iris.  It's on 30th Ave and Constituyentes.  If you just take the street that runs in between The Royal and Gran Porto you make a right on 30th Ave you'll see a store called Aguilar (my new last name actually lol we got a laugh out of that) and that is 30th Ave where you'll make a right.  It's about a 10 minute walk.  They just have a bunch of loose flowers and we got a ton of flowers for only $40 and it was more than enough to make 3 small bouquets, 3 bouts for the guys and 3 wrist corsages for the moms and grandmother.

I actually brought the turquoise lanterns with me.  I bought them at Target back in the Spring when they had their outdoor type stuff in the dollar bin. 

We didn't make it to the Walmart but it's right up the street from the flower shop I just gave directions too.  So if you go to the Floweria Iris and don't find what you're looking for then Walmart is just a block away.  Here's a map if it helps.

 

 


 


Thanks ChicagoBride2011  All future brides have nothing to worry about.  Any and all questions you have will eventually get answered.  And the wedding coordinators are really accomodating even if you have to get answers or make changes when you meet with them a few days before.  And really, there's not going to be a problem big enough to ruin your wedding at such a beautiful place!  Once you get there and see how beautiful it is and how lucky you are to be able to have such a great location, you'll quickly realize how petty all those little details are.  Just enjoy yourself and your hunny and everything else is peanuts in comparison!

Hi Michelle!

 

I was originally posting on the Knot message boards but got bored with that because everything was so generalized and was so thrilled to find this board since it is specific to our venue.  It's so great to hear from someone with the same date!!  What are the plans for your wedding?  Where are your ceremony and reception going to be held?  My ceremony will be at the gazebo at 4 and the reception will be in the ballroom (my fiance prefers indoors for the reception, but looking at everyone's pics have me craving a beach reception, lol!!)  I haven't made any of my other choices yet (I know I'm a slacker!).

 

I, too, have people staying at Gran Porto.  My sister, brother-in-law and my mom will be over there with my nieces and nephews.  I figure I will spend a bit of time each day over there with them.  My one question about that is will I have any trouble with my nieces (ages 12 and 9) coming over to my room for getting ready photos.  I guess I will have to ask my WC about that.  They would really enjoy being a part of it, so if worse comes to worse, maybe I'll have to get ready in my mom's room. 

 

So nice to "meet" you!!

Liz

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
