It does end up being kind of pricey which is why went with the partial takover. More guests = more $ for the dinner, bar etc. I was also looking at las caletas but that really wasn't much cheaper. Let me know if you have any questions.

    We have already booked our week, the minister and photogrpaher and our wedding is not until Oct 2009. Good luck.
    Thanks! I think we are sold. It is expensive in a way, but what isn't?!. I think you get what you pay for in life!
    Who are you using for a photographer and how much is it costing you?

    P.S. I live in Excelsior, MN... are you right in Mpls or the burbs?

      Check out their website. It looks so great! We decided to do Riveria Maya instead of PV but Playa Fiesta looks fabulous.

        We did the full takeover and are a little stressed now b/c the rooms aren't filling quite as fast as we had hoped....still have a while though!

        Lindsay and Adam are amazing. Yes, PF is a little more expensive than some other places, but we figure we are getting a 5 day party out of it.

        We are using Michelle Turner as our photographer. She is higher end, meaning more $$, but her pictures are absolutely amazing. You can visit her website at Michelle Turner Photography - Maine and Destination Wedding Photography

        Good luck!!

          Thanks! Do you have a photography estimate? The one I like is about $6k... so a ballpark would be helpful! And what you are getting for that amount.

          I am debating whether to do a full or partial takeover, still. I don't need any more stress... I am already moving my wedding accross the country of Mexico. That's all of the stress I can take!

            I agree.... I just got back from PV and Playa Fiesta is amazing. It is like a small little hotel all to yourself. Adam and Lindsay aren't only the best people I met in PV, they are so in love and so it is their pleasure to ensure your time there is magical. You will have the wedding of your dreams there.
            Congrats......

            Oh and honestly getting married there isn't as expensive as other options. It is totally worth it. They are also doing a reno this summer so it is going to be even more amazing by the fall.

            Cheers

            PS I have pics if you would like me to send them to you

                We did the partial takeover b/d we didn't want to additional stress of trying to fill the rooms. You can always have more guests than the rooms reserved. We are using Beth for the photographer she is keeping her 2008 prices for 2009 so that was nice. Her pics cost 3K but you get a all rights to the pics plus all imaged digitally enhanced on the DVD.

                By the way congrats on booking and yes I do live in Minneapolis.

                  It is around 5k, and includes full coverage on the day of the wedding, plus a shoot the day before the wedding (casual, romatic type photos) and rights to all the high res digital images of all the photos....

                      Well, how many people are in your group (estimate) Playa Fiesta requires a 20 bedroom minimum- so you would need at least 40 people. It is a smaller, more private venue. What are you looking for?
                      I was considering Dreams Tulum first and decided on PF because it is private, intimate... like renting a villa without having to foot the whole bill. We are expecting around 50.
                      I also like it because the WC Lindsay communicates with you, is from the US... makes a difference.
                      If you are laid back, and aren't into tiny details Dreams would be great. Many people haven't had much luck communicating with Dreams WCs until right before the wedding... but it turns out beautiful. I am not quite that hands off and am a worrier.... so PF rocks!
