        OMG!!! I am floored, I cannot believe this. I think it is possible that it may have to do with time of year. I am getting married in November which is low season for them. When are you getting married? That is the only thing I can thik of. I'm mean this is just ridiculous. There has to be a reason as to why their prices are diffrent..ggrrrrrrrrrrrr

            I am literally so confused by all of this. No I do not have an e-mail anymore I'm sorry. Once we booked it I didn't think I needed it any more. I just pasted everything into a word doc and kept it for my wn personal reference. Did you ask if time of year varies and maybe also people? We are having 100.

              After all the hupala with DJ Ivan and the rate changes I e-mailed Angie. I sent her over an excel sheet with everything itemized with the prices. I basically did her job for her. All I asked was for her to cofirm the prices for me and have them to me by today. That was four days ago, I re-emailed her again, guess what nada.

              I am beyond frusterated and fed up with the Royal at this point. I will keep everyone posted on what we end up doing and how the prices differ if you book everything your self and do a non-resort wedding.

              I am getting quite frustrated, as well. When I spoke with Angie a week ago, about this whole DJ stuff, she was supposed to get back to me - I sent her 2 emails and she was going to call me, haven't heard anything. I also haven't heard from my WC at the resort since I put the deposit down, I have sent her a few emails as well. At this point, all I want to know is the price that we were hopefully locked in at when we put down the deposit to reserve our day, and what is happening with other DJ vendors besides Ivan.

              It feels like once we put our deposit down, the communication became horrific - I know that November was their busy season, but still....

                  Im thinking of getting married at the Royal in Playa del Carmen. I was wondering if anyone knows if they offer room discounts for guest since we will have 50-60 people attend.

                  Also any photographer recommendations?

                    I completely agree. I never heard back from Zulma after our site visit. And Angie still has not confirmed the prices. I am working on speaking to someone higher up at The Royal who will answer all our questions. I am more concerned about the constant changing of rates, fees, and other stuff.

                      Hi Ladies -
                      The dj stuff seems pretty confusing - thanks for keeping us all updated as things change.

                      In terms of the sailing prices - has anyone looked into other companies in the area like Fat Cat Sailing or Paradise Catamaras? Maybe they have more consistent prices?

                      And does anyone have experience with playaweddings.com for photography?

                      -Katey (4/17/10)
