    Updated with 2009 info:

    What type of wedding packages do they have?

    Based on 2009 information I got from the coordinator they offer 3 types:

    * Free Symbollic - if you stay in the Royal Suites Section and have less than 12 guests
    * Tides - includes semi-private reception for up to 24 guests - ~$1296 US
    * Tropical Fairy Tale - includes private reception for up to 24 guests ~1728 US

    These prices are without the extra's (Horse & Carriage, Trio, beach dance floor, extra people, etc.).

    How do you book?

    Nonrefundable deposit is 35% of the package you choose due when you request your date, ceremony type and location sent via wire transfer or cheque to name specified in the Celebrations PDF. Also there are two forms to be completed (one in excel with wedding details and the other is the official contract between you and the resort).

    PM me if you want the full details. I can send you the PDF with the full details for 2009 Packages.

      You can also send pictures to see if certain bouquets can be replicated (for a cost of course).

              Princess: We have 19 booked and are expecting at least 10 more (hopefully). My TA warned me, however, that some will book closer to the date or travel or even last minute! I'll send you some info if you want me to but also check out Shellb's thread...lots of info on there as well!

                  Shelb, I don't know how I missed your Melia Q&A thread!
                  Sorry, I feel dumb now for starting another one!

                  Great info though all around! Nice to have the updated packages posted... I think I saw these posted on the melia cocktail hour thread as well.

                    I know that the Melia is pretty big resort and that some of the rooms are close to the beach pools, and then some of the rooms are set back close to the lobby and restaurants. I know there is at least one buffet restaurant in the section close to the beach. Are any of the a la cartes on the beach, or are they all towards the back of the resort? Also, I read a couple of reviews on trip advisor that said a downside of having rooms in the area close to the beach is that after dinner there are no restaurants or bars open in this area, so you have to go all the way to the back section of the resort if you want anything to eat or drink? Is this true

                      There's a map on the facebook group that will show you the layout. It used to be 2 resorts.
