The only reason we chose Occidental was because it was cheaper than Paradisus otherwise we would have gladly gotten married at PRDO. Feel free to ask me any questions and I'll try to answer them.
Have you been to PT yet? I was thinking about that place as well, but I could not find many reviews on it, so I was a little scared (wedding reviews that is). Tell me about it.

What are you getting Married?

Well, we are not moving till March, our closing date is March 9, so we will move in on March 10. I need to start packing soon though, I like to get things done well in advance so I am not panicking a week before moving day. We did have our home inspection on Friday though and it went great, so the deal is accepted and we are buying it for sure. I am so excited. I have a few pics of the inside only, I will post them when I get a chance.

Hi Julie. I just noticed that you're getting married in Cuba! Congratulations! I went to Hoguin 2 year ago and I loved it. We stayed at the Occidental Grand Playa Turquesa. Let me know if you have any questions, I'd be glad to help.

We are getting married at OGPT in July. OMG I just realized that in almost five months I am getting married! smile159.gif I haven't been there yet, we decided on it because my friend had gotten engaged there and she loved it. There don't seem to be any wedding reviews but I know someone getting married there in February so hopefully she'll be able to tell me all about it. We also stopped by there when we were in Cuba the last time and the resort looked amazing. We will likely be getting the free wedding as it looks like we'll have 20 people going with us. We do know all about PRDO though if you have any questions about it, we stayed there for a week for a wedding.

PDRO is too pricey I think. We want something cheaper for our guests. We also need a place that we can have kids and with stuff for kids to do.

I want to hear all about your friend's wedding, I want to see pics too, if possible. When in Feb is she getting married?

I stayed at the Playa Turquesa 2 years ago but this is what a remember.

 

-the grounds are huge, safe & clean. there are lots of banana trees which I thought was pretty cool.

-I ate at the Italian, Chinese, Cuban & Seafood restaurant. The Italian restaurant was the worst, me & my FI walked out after the appetizer to eat at the buffet. The Chinese restaurant was good, no complaints. The Cuban restaurant was my favorite for both the food and ambiance. The restuarant is outside in a little court yard. I don't remember the seafood restaurant but I remember that ambiance was nice as well.

-lots of pools. we mostly hung out by the one with the waterfall. at the top of the waterfall the water is a bit deeper. I'm 5'1 (shorty!) and not really a swimmer. I had to tippy toe to get to the swimm up bar. Unfortunatly, there was a problem with the pool heaters the week we were there but the water was still warm and cooling at the same time.

-there were lots of families there so I'm sure your guests with kids will have lots to do.

-lots of stairs. bring comfortable shoes.

-the beach was beautiful but rocky. In the morning me and my FI would walk along the beach to pick up some shells...aww the memories!

-after dinner me and FI would hang out at the 24hr bar. they have really good cappaccinos! it was a good way to start a night of partying!

-if you don't want to go into town usually once a week or more some vendors will set up shop on the resort for you or your guests to do their shopping.

 

Ok, sorry so long. I guess I remember more than I thought. If you want to know more just let me know. I am more than happy to help.

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
