    I just wanted to add that we did use the internet at the hacienda. I used it for about 5-10 minutes to check my email and reply back to our photographer. If I remember correctly it was under $5.

    Our wedding time got changed once we got there. I believe it was supposed to be at 1pm and it was switched to 3pm. No big deal... since once you are down there what does the time really matter? But it did stink that my invitations and everything were wrong. However, having a 3pm ceremony meant it was MUCH cooler and THANK GOODNESS!!!

    As for the internet, not in the rooms. And the premier lobby you have to have a gold bracelet. i did sneak my friend in a few times so she could check on her son back at home, but we got yelled at a few times too. Eventually Shawn just slipped his bracelet off and we would put it on her to go in there.

      Did everyone's ceremony time get changed? I'm a little worried just because we're all getting our hair done and the last apointment is set to finish around 2pm.

      Does Jazmin do a reherrsal the night before?

        Okay, I am really excited... As a birthday/ graduation present, my FI booked us a trip to go check out the resort in early March (yippee!) He booked the Coba section since we will be in the Tulum for our wedding, he wanted to try a something a little different but still get to check out the resort (I am still in schock... major shock)... What is the best a la cart restaurant in Coba? And if anyone wants ANY info, let me know! I am going to try to book a meeting with Jazmin to see if we can look at flowers/ things like that... anyway, let me know! So excited, he told me tonight!!!!!

            Our time did not get changed. If you want to do a rehearsal, I think it's something you will have to arrange yourself (maybe with the help of Jazmin). We didn't do a rehearsal but a few girls on here did.

                Well that's a darn nice present!!! I ate at Coba... but for the life of me I can't remember the place. darn shame too because it was fabulous!

                As for the rehearsal, we were told no (we'd have to do it on our own)... but she did set up a welcome dinner in the buffet for us.

                  That's so exciting! I would definitely eat at the japanese restaurant, Mikado. Le Gourmet was good as well. I pretty much ordered steak at all of the ala cartes and it was good everywhere!
