I thought I was set on a beach wedding, but after seeing all the pictures, and reading about it. I think i'm going with the gazebo.. So pretty!!
I think I'm going with Tulum.. But I'm not getting married until 2010, so I'm pretty sure I will change my mind again..
Thank you for all the info!!

And I haven't been able to get a ton of info on Coba, probably because it is the newer hotel, and it seems like most people have picked Tulum or Akumal for their weddings. I liked the idea too of everyone being able to have a junior suites. And if the new restaurant thing is in effect, my TA says yes (only being able to eat at the restaurants at your hotel), then the Coba has a larger selection of restaurants than the other hotels.
I would love to see your pictures of the beach location for Coba, if possible.
If you want to post it on here that cool, or if you want to email it to me that would be awesome too.
If you private message me your email, I will gladly email you those photos. I don't think I'm talented enough to figure out how to post them
The great thing about this resort is that guests can use all 3 facilities. But we were also told about the new rules going into effect, which helped lead to our decision to pick Coba.
From what I've gathered from TripAdvisor, and this forum, is the Coba has the biggest buffet, so if we were to only be allowed one buffet choice, I wanted to give our guests the best selection. I believe the Coba, also has airconditioned ala carte restaurants which was important to us, as we have a May wedding and expect it to be hot. I've read reviews on TripAdisvor about some restaurants being too hot to bare. The only draw back is not being right on the beach, but I'm hoping guests won't mind the short walk.
We weren't able to select our wedding location (maybe because we are the 5pm wedding- last one of the day I believe), but I was very happy with what she sent us. Originally, I liked the thought of the Gazebo, but I figure if I am coming all the way to Mexico I might as well get married in the sand!!
So far things are running smoothly with planning, we have already picked our restaurant for dinner, and set up plans for after dinner. Can't wait!!! Just over 4 months to go...

Location or time? I'm working on my welcome brochure right now and had planned on putting both location and time in there. Aargh!
You and your FI will be upgraded depending on availablity. (If the resort has rented out all upgraded rooms to guests who have paid for those rooms, you won't be upgraded).
