I highly suggest Cancun Valet. I haven't used them myself, but they have great reviews and are the best price. About $145 roundtrip for up to 11 people in a private vehicle.

    You can bring in an outside cake vendor - I asked Jazmin - but I can't remember if there was a charge or not - I don't think there is. We ended up going with the resort though.

    drai - if you're wanting to be close to everything I'd suggest 4... We stayed in 3 - it has a great view, but it's a little futher back than 4 is.

    The villas that you listed have great views, but they're right by the Gran Tortuga.. which isn't very far but it's further... really depends I guess on what you want to be close to.

    Also, why don't you want to take the provided shuttle?

      Oops, I forgot to add, here's a link to the map of the hotel... numbers a blurry, but if you've already been there you can tell what they are:

          Thanks for the tips on the villas! Much appreciated. Everyone is so nice here, it's great, it's like a big extended family! I read that the provided shuttle takesmuch longer because the GBPT is the last resort. I have some people with connecting flights, so I thought if I provided direct transportation it might be better for them

            So Stacy, congrats on your recent wedding! How was it, did you enjoy it? Was Jazmin your coordinator? Did you get married on the gazebo or the beach? Which restaurant did you choose? Any tips? Sorry for all the questions, it's just so great to finally see someone who got married at the same resort and a Canadian too!

                I'm with you on that! Yurtizia drives me nuts, my wedding party number just increased so I actually have to pick a set menu, I contacted her about it, even flagged the email as important but nothing. The only thing that seems to work is getting the travel agent to call her, what a pain (for me and my agent!). I say we do the best we can for our weddings...then on the 12th....we'll get her...kidding, we'll get drunk and laugh I hope, if all goes well.
                Take care and know that I'm just as frustrated as you are.

                  You all should email Jazmin....I never have to wait more than a day to get a response from her.

                    Hey Martha, what is Jazmin's email address?

                    I am with you girls about Yuritzia. We have about 50 people for our wedding so far, and I can't wait to figure out the menu in the last month unless I decide to call each guest individually and ask them what they want to eat. I emailed Irma, the main coordinator, and she told me that "Yuritzia will be contacting you within 2.5 months of your wedding."..... great....
