    Anyone have any ideas for bridal shoes for getting married on the beach? I was thinking going barefoot, but with the sand being rocky etc..it may not be a good idea.

      They will set up a great wooden runner for you to walk on during a beach ceremony. I wore heels for the ceremony and changed into sme cute white wedge flip-flops for the reception.
      We did a lot of shots barefoot - the sand is beautiful to walk on, just rocky as you enter the water.

        is it possible for your heals to go through the cracks of the wooden runner? that is definitely a concern of mine. will stiletto work? or must be thicker?

        thanks! great review!

            Hey guys!!! Just got back sunday night but it took me a while to get the time to write you guys what I found. I am a little obscessed so this review is going to be a little hard core!!! I took a ton of pictures but for some reason I can't upload them to this site. I will keep trying.

            We arrived on Friday night... late. By the time we got there it was almost 10pm and we were starving. All the restaurants were closing but the italian restaurant went out of their way to accomodate us. They served us and the food was pretty good. One person had the vege lasagna and thought it was amazing!! I had a pasta dish that was good. The desert was pretty good. The service was great. The house wines are good, not great. There is a choice of chardonnay or merlot from argentina. Anything else you have to purchase.

            Saturday morning we wet to spoons for breakfast. The omlettes are great! The buffet spread is a little scarce but not bad. THey could do a little more to have some ethnic dishes. Fresh juice was good. The servers are a little overwhelmed but it is buffet style.

            The beach is pretty. The beach and pool beds are a really nice touch. The sand is fine but always packed. I did not go into the water because it was too cold. They had a BBQ on the beach and we ate that for lunch. It was pretty good. Our meeting with the wedding cooridinators was great. They seem really with it and showed us all of the wedding, cocktail and reception spots.

            Wedding: The roof top wedding seats up to 80 people. very very romantic. I think we will go there. The beach is nice but I am expecting too many guests and my shoes will not handle the sand!! We saw a beach wedding set up and it looked very elegant. It is very windy so those of you considering veils (as I am) will have to be creative or else I could see a serious problem.
            The rain site is a hallway that they block off and decorate. I was not impressed when I saw it but when they showed me pics of it all set up it actually looks ok.

            Cocktail hour: There are various sites in the outdoor grounds for the reception and I think that they are all really nice. Most of them have an ocean view and are by the pool.


            Reception: Andrew and I really really want a private reception and we are expecting between 40 and 60 guests so we are really really limited. We are basically stuck in the conference room which is nice and spacious but does not have an ocean view. The cenral plaza is nice but you are in the middle if everything and there will be lots of foot traffic from the other hotel guests.

            The rooms are nice. No plumbing, electrical or air conditioning issues. We travelled with another couple who said that the water in their shower spilled a little into the bathroom but did not think it significant enough to switch rooms.

            The drinks were good but a little cheap with the alcohol. The mojito bar makes a great mojito.

            Overall I think that the service was good however they can get a little overwhelmed at times. Overall I was happy especially since the hotel was at 92% capacity.

            I am soooo excited!!!! We were planning to get married next jan but I realized that it is a little cold in Jan. We caught a cold front which made me realize that I don't want to take any chances. Keep that in mind when you are selecting your day. As soon as I figur out how to put pics on this site I will.

            Hope this helps
            Jen

              Krista-Congrats on your wedding and thanks for posting your review! I'm glad it went well. You have provided a ton of valuable information. I have one question-who is Honey? Is Carolina still around as well? I'm glad they are hiring more people to help, I just hope she's good!
              I can't wait to see some pics!! It sounds beautiful, especially the flowers!

                I use photobucket.com to upload my pics and then copy and paste the image code into your message.
                Do you really think you are limited to the conference room? If you like the plaza, go for it. Once it is all set up for your wedding, I doubt other guests will come close to it when walking by.
