    Great review Julie. I hesitate to read anything about the El Dorado Royale because everytime I do I want to scrap my whole guest list economical wedding at the Occidental and run away with Ryan to the El Dorado Royale and be done with it. :) The place sounds amazing.

      Hi Julie,

      So glad that you have such good things to say about EDR b/c it's my top runner for April 2008. What did you think about the beaches when you were there? Will you have people wanting to swim in the ocean there?

      Thanks!

        several people have written privately since my review of EDR. I am really terrible at understanding how to write back, yes I am over 50!
        Most questions have concerned swimming in the ocean. From what I could tell swimming in the ocean at EDR is not possible. You could walk the beach, wade in the water but not swim. There are huge boulders that the waves crash on about 50 yards out in the surf. I did see kayaks so there must be some access but I did not see any.
        The cocktail reception offerings at EDR are wonderful. Everything from passed, buffet, etc.of the hors' and of course the bar is included so there is no extra charge. We are having the reception in one of the dining rooms, open air but large thatched roof. We are glad for that due to the heat in May.
        Mallory and Matt are so excited, the STD went out and the responses are slowly trickling in.
        If you have any questions I really will try to check the site more often and to respond more quickly. I think I have figured out how to reply!! (no laughing all you young brides)!

          I just got married at EDR in February. I'd be happy to answer any questions! Seems like there are quite a few EDR brides here. It's a gorgeous place to get married...not that I'm biased =)

            Oh my goodness... without a word of a lie.. my mom showed me your pictures! We were researching EDR for our trip (which was last week), and she found your pictures and couldn't stip talking about them (she's also a member on this forum). Small world! Anyways -I agree, the resort is amazing and if I didn't have minors in my guest list, I'd have my wedding there.

            Great photos! :)

              this whole swimming thing boggles me. you could when i was there in september. im back in may for a wedding. i will sure check on it. the bride and groom brought an ipod and just had the DJ play their music so i know you can do that. heres a slideshow from a wedding i shot there. you can actually see people swimming. i will check with my may bride and see if shes heard anything about swimming there. it would be a bummer if you cant!

                You definately can swm there - like I said, I was there just last week. They have flagged areas for swimming (green means safe, yellow cautionary, red no-go zone)... and the GIANT sand bags makes it a little bit of a bummer to swim... but you still can!
