      Hi there congratulations hope you had an amazing time.

      We leave 23rd march get married 2nd April at the tulum gazebo cant wait and our meal will be at the don pablo. We have 28 guests booked already and still waiting for 6more to book. 

      I just wondered if you knew exactly how long your photographer had to stay for I was told 5days then 5nights so just want to make sure?

      Does anyone know where the poolside reception will be at the tulum please?

            Thanks for your reply! :)

             

            Eugenia hasn't mentioned anything about a cash deposit. Did she wait until you got there to tell you about it or did you know about the deposit before you left for Mexico?

             

            Sorry about the late response. Jazmin told me about the deposit before I left for Mexico. The final email she sent me, she mentioned the cash deposit. Again, I'm not sure if this is standard across all 3 of the resorts or if that was just for Tulum.

            This is a picture of my cake that we got... we had dinner at the Don Pablo on Tulum. We had the 3 milks (tres leches) and it was AMAZING! I had to request for a 2-tier cake from Jazmin though. I asked her to make the 2 tiers smaller than usual just so I can't have the layers.

            My photographers stayed for 5 nights. I booked their stay for Nov. 10 -15, which was sufficient for the resort to let them photograph my wedding.

            I'm going through my photos from the trip and my dad's facebook photos. Tequila has square tables from what I remember and what I can see in the photos. My family was there in a group of 7 or 8 and they just put together some square tables to make a long table for them. I believe the settings there are 8-10 people per table.

                Hey Ladies!

                My wedding will take place at the Akumal Beach location in Feb. I am just talking with the WC Eugina which has been great.

                I am wondering what all of you had for dinner (we chose Dolce vita at Akumal) she wants me to chose what each person will be eating (the same appy soup and main for all 26 people) I am a little uncompfortable choosing one dish for all 26 people to eat the same thing.... any advise? was it the same for you all??

                Yup, that is typical.  You can select a vegetarian option, if that is of concern though.

                  awe, :( i was hoping that wasnt the case :( I figure if all 26 of us went to any of the other restaurants on any other day we could sit as a group and order what we want.. I understand its probably easier for them to do it that way.. but not easier for me :(


                  Is that because for a one week stay each person gets 3 restaurant nights... and with a wedding techinically they get 4? because the wedding night doesnt count against a restaurant meal?

                    Hi Everyone, 

                     

                    I got married on December 19th, 2013. We stayed from December 15-29th (our guests stayed from December 15-22). We did the "Unforgettable" wedding package, LEGAL wedding. 

                    Hotel we stayed at: Coba

                    Hair: Coba Spa
                    Ceremony: Tulum Gazebo

                    Dinner: Porto Fino

                    Reception: Arrecife Jacuzzi Pool (Coba)

                     

                    We brought our photographer from Toronto. 

                     

                    If anyone would like me to speak to anything or write a review please let me know. 

                    Thanks egagne87 for posting this! I would love to know more about your wedding- I am getting married at the end of February and we are eating at the Portofino with our reception at the Jacuzzi Pool in Coba!   Couple questions for you:

                     

                    How many guests did you have and did you think the Jacuzzi Pool area was large enough for people to dance?  We have a little over 50 and I am worried about it being large enough-

                     

                    What was your menu at Portofino and did your guests like it?

                     

                    Did your wedding party give speeches?  Any spot you would recommend to do this (dinner versus reception)

                     

                    What did you think of the Coba Salon? How much was it to get your hair done?

                     

                    Would LOOOOVE to be able to email you!!! Sounds like we have the exact same wedding day J
