    The rest of the resort is gorgeous, and I can say that once I was there, I changed my mind on a lot of things. First, I am opting for the sky wedding--it is worth the money in my opinion and it will be more private. Second, I am going to do the reception outside on the terrace of Zoloco. It is so neat how it over looks the ocean and there is plenty of room to have tables and a dance floor. I feel like this space above all captures the essence of why I wanted to do a destination wedding. Laid back, warm and inviting.

    Sorry I haven't posted a review yet, I was swamped at work when I got back and with the holidays I haven't had time. I will get something put together this weekend. Feel free to message me with any specific questions.
    I didn't know about the terrace of Zocolo for a reception. How many people will you have at your reception? I'm just curious as to how many people it holds. I can't wait to read your review! I will be there in February for a site inspection as well. I can't wait to see it in person.

      Zocalo terrace is about 60pp. I was able to get this information during my pre-opening site visit 10/2008.

        Anyone talk to Fabio lately? I'm just patiently waiting until our turn to plan.

        P.S. Happy New Year!
        Hey Jenny! I think no news is good news. It was a little there for a while. I'm awaiting my turn to plan too. It's the waiting that's getting to me though.

        Happy New Year to everyone!

          Hello Ladies!

          We have been pretty quite lately! To be honest I have been trying to avoid this website as well as TripAdvisor in the past few weeks. I leave in a week and reading bad reviews was not helping me stay calm.

          I have to thank Magda for her review. I feel a lot better about my upcoming wedding and vacation. No, not everything will be perfect but it sounds like things are getting better.

          Thank you to all the brides who have been posting information these past months. You have all been a great help to me. Wish me luck and I'll have a review posted as soon as possible!

              When I was there for my site inspection, I sat with Gilberto and Caroline on the Zocalo terrace and told them that I would like to have a reception with 60 to 80 pp. I was told the terrace would be fine for that many. However, I am still 8 months away and I haven't seen any confirmation in writing.

              I am so glad you get to go see the resort before you plan. It really helped me put a lot of my anxiety to rest. And like I said before, until I was there, I had planned on picking the plaza for my reception. But when I saw the Zocalo terrace, it had such a mexican vibe (it is the mexican cantina)to it and you could see and hear the ocean-- I just knew that was the place. Really when it comes down to it, the difference will be what type of reception you want. I can just imagine it at night with the sconces on and a whole bunch of candles lit--I feel like it will be cozy and intimate at night.

              The only thing I will say about the Plaza that is logistical and not just a personal preference is that I feel like wind will be an issue. The plaza is tucked in side the buildings but it seemed like the wind came off the ocean and was directed right through the buildings over that spot. When I was on the terrace, it felt more sheltered. However, I was onl on the property for about 6 hours so it could have been the weather that day.

              Again, I welcome any questions, because realistically not everyone can go down there and I am glad to help in any way I can. I can't tell you all how awesome it is after a long day at work and a long night of planning and internet browsing ahead of me to sit down and read all the posts on this forum and feel like you all understand what I am going through--the good and the bad

              Thanks to all and have a Happy New Year!
