    Sorry I haven't put up a review yet - it's because we have no pictures. And really, what fun is a review with no pictures. I'll post it as soon as I have photos to add. :)

      What is the internet access like at the GBP? We are at the Coba. I think we are going to bring our laptop so we can back up our photos daily. We also bought a little memory card camcorder that we can back up to the computer daily.

      Internet access is for the diamond members only (or so it was last year) there is a little room with 2-3 computers.

      As for bringing your own laptop, make sure you have a laptop lock to keep it safe in your room.

        We're back and we're married!!!

        Everything went perfectly except the pouring rain in the morning that lasted until 1:30 in the afternoon. We we're lucky enough to have our wedding outside. Jazmin did a wonderful job and everything we asked was there! The only thing I can say about her is that she takes way too much time to answer us back! We got married on the Tulum side and we had the legal and the mayan ceremony right after! After the second ceremony we had the mariachis and everybody loved it. Our photographer was Elizabeth Medina! What a nice person! She's so lovely to work with, she's relaxed and she don't mind when we ask for special pics! I can't wait to see her pictures! For now, here's a few non profesionnal one!!

          Congrats! Gorgeous pictures! I can't wait to see the professional ones. I have lots of questions for you. It sounded like you had the legal ceremony, right? If so, how was the officiant? Were you allowed to write your own vows and add in extra things such as sand ceremony, readings, etc? Did the coordinator translate, how was that? Also, how was the dinner? We want details! Thanks so much for your help. I'm glad everything went well.

            Sorry, I have one more question. It looks like your dancing in your pictures, did you rent the DJ for a private reception or is that at the disco? Thanks!

                  Yes we had the legal ceremony and the juge was fine, she spoke only spanish and Jazmin translate everything and it was ok. We didn't write our vows but we could if we would because Jazmin ask us at our meeting. She told me we couldn't include the sand ceremony because the judge was really strict... We had the dinner at the buffet because we didn't want to choose what everybody would have had for dinner... It was perfect because it was semi-private... I hope this helps a little bit...

                  For your other question :
                  We had the chance to dance a few songs in the lobby bar.... The DJ wasn't available...
