I sent an email with my Wedding Event Form to my onsite WC today. I hope that she can get started on it, as we really have our hearts set on our plans!

I have requested the Chapel Gazebo for the ceremony. The Chapel Garden or Terrace Venado for both the Cocktail Reception & Dinner. Where is the Terrace Venado - I can't seem to find it on any maps?

Should you hear anymore on the DJ lighting, please keep me posted - as I have seen many photos of the self-DJ system and there has been lighting in these pictures.

We will keep each other posted - you have been a huge help

Chat soon - Laura
Laura,

I posted a map on posting #1098 that may help visualize where everything is. Terrace Venado is in the upper right-hand corner of the map. If you are short on points, I can email you a copy of the map (I'll see if I can make a little note on the map as to where the terraces are). All I need is your email address, so let me know.

Camie

As far as our site visit, it was great! We went down Sept 25-29th and stayed at the MP. It rained the WHOLE time, but we still had a great time. It was off season, so the resort was no where close to capacity!

Before we went we had the Bumgabalia Gazabo reserved for our ceremoney and the terrace for our coctail hour (2 hour) and Star Ballroom for our reception. I actually just emailed them today to ask if they can switch it to the other Gazebo (not the Chapel) as that's the one with the LONG walk way and we are changing our coctail hour from 2 hours to 1. The Gazebo's and terrace are on teh Nizuc side and the Star ballroom is on the Sunrise...so we figured we'll give guests some time to make their way accross.

The resort is HUGE! Even the guy we met on our way home at the duty free shop (hehe) was like "that's not a resort, it's a city!" And OMG it is! We got a little lost getting to our room the first day and a half, then you figure it out. We were staying on the Sunrise side. All the balconies on the sunrise side have hammocs, that was pretty cool :)

We did the timeshare presentation. It was really hard to turn it down, really really hard...the more you turn it down, the better the deal gets. (we would have taken the last one if we had the money!). But for doing it, we got a tee shirt, beach bag, $50 towards an excursion and $100 towards the spa :) Turns out, our room also came with a $200 credit to the spa.. Make sure you look into this! When settling your bill, you will have been charged for teh Spa, but just tell them you have the creit and they'll take it off. OMG the spa was awesome!!!!!!! best part of the whole trip!

We did paradise snorkling, first time either of us have snorkled adn it was GREAT! We used the credit towards adding on ATV's and Speedboats! So much fun!!!!

There really are golf carts everywhere adn if you ask them how to get back to yoru room, they'll take you closer lol and the shuttle that goes from one lobby to the other comes every 10 minutes, it was awesome! After our massages we had lunch at the Italian place on the golf course. We'd heard from a lot of other guests that it was one of the best restuants. And it definately was!!!

If you have any questions about anything specific, feel free to ask and I'll answer...it's just hard to cover EVERYTHING!

Oh, the wedding office was great! I belive we met with Kalina and she was so sweet. She sat with us and went over EVEYTHING! I picked out our flowers, centerpieces, table linens, etc etc :)

For those of you not going down before your wedding. I can see how you can do everything we did three days before, so don't worry! Everything will be great!!!!!
Thanks so much for posting this review! smile35.gif

Thank you very much! It's good to hear that maybe I'm not being ignored. Who is your WC? I will email Xochitl and hopefully schedule something through her. Congrats on your wedding! Hopefully I'll hear from you after your big day...I would love to see pictures!

Hey KLO! Of all the far stretches of the world that this forum reaches, it always makes me smile to see a fellow local. I was born and raised in the Reno/Sparks area and only moved away (to Susanville, CA) about a year and half ago.

If the spa contact you have doesn't respond to you, try Gabriel Silva Alvarez <gsilva@palaceresorts.com>. He was awesome to work with. I got all the appointments I needed at the time I wanted.

Just to give you an idea on prices, this is what there typical services cost:
mani/pedi = $50
hair style/updo = $42
make-up = $44

I also attached the other spa services offered in case any of you are interested in massages or facials.

Yippie... I leave tomorrow!!

I searched this whole thread on recommendations on tipping, but I couldn't find anything. Anyone have any idea who should receive a tip and how much would be appropriate. I am assuming we need to tip the servers, but I am not sure who else should get tipped. Does the mariachi also get a tip? I am clueless!

Thank you so much! I will email him also...it can't hurt to email too many people vs. not enough, right? I'm so excited for you...can't wait to hear how it all went! Have a wonderful time under the sun!
