    did you get any kind of discount for bringing in an outside photographer? I am planning on using the resorts videographer and bringing my own photographer

      I know that they won't give any discounts off the package price but you might be able to get longer video coverage in exchange....I'm pretty sure that I've heard of other brides who have been able to arrange this.

        So I emailed back my booking info/deposit from hotmail to be on the safe side. Nada. Sent another ...zip.

        FI just called and she told him she had already emailed back the confirmation and that if he has further inquiries, please email. Funny. Btw, no email confirmations at either email account (also checked junk/spam).
        Yes, Angie tried to tell me the other day I had not filled out my booking form yet, which I did in August!! Caused me quite a scare, but all was settled when my travel agent contacted her :).
        38 Guests booked!

          If your working with a TA I would have her call her. Angie is really terrible with getting back to you and following through.

          I finally got my TA involved and it was the only way to get answers.

            I agreee with Jescam. Booking with a travel agent will save you a lot of stress. I'm also using Jill and she's been terrific. Not only will she book our guests but she's a great resource in dealing with the Royal's wedding coordinators. PLUS...when your guests have travel questions or issues, they'll go to the TA and not you, allowing you to relax!
            My first instinct was to go through a TA, however I've heard from other girls on this site that once they got to PDC (at either the Royal or the Gran) their rooms got bumped, but the girls who went directly through the hotel did not have this problem. Have you heard anything about this or have any concerns with this happening to you?

              No kidding. After my FI called her yesterday, she DID email me, but with the same introductory info, booking, credit sheet, etc. WTF? I had already faxed her that info...grr.

              Called again today and was told they have problems with their email system...

I was in touch right away, though I booked 8 months before my wedding.

                Hope this helps!

                Jen,
                Thanks for your post. I got in contact with our WC and gave her the package we want to use. I'm sure things are a bit crazy with the holidays. Hopefully she'll send me my contract soon!

                  what the heck? I'm so glad she is not my US WC or I would have flew over there and demanded her to do her damn work! Why isn't this person fired yet? That just baffles me.

                    Thanks :)
                    Hi,
                    We plan on staying at the Royal after our wedding as our unofficial honeymoon. I think it is a great honeymoon spot with its close proximity to town, the ferry to Cozumel, or a quick trip to Tulum. I love the adults only concept which makes relaxing by the pool peaceful. When we stayed last time we were in a jr. ocean view suite. It was very nice, all with 2 person jacuzzi tubs in the rooms. This time around we are doing the swim up suites which are right off the pool. Hope this helps.

                      I am with you Lady Di this is totally unbelievable. And the worst part is Angie is the manager there!! I can't believe she has not been fired yet either.
