Glad to hear that it didn't seem empty.  I always wanted Mundaca until others said it was too large for a small reception.  Maybe I'll end up with the one I wanted all along. =)

 

 

This is the picture of the Cove Terrace from the packet I rec'd.  Does anyone recognize it?  I love the way it looks.

They seated quite a few older couples out on the terrace behind us that night too, which I was mad about at first, but it added to the atmosphere more than I'd have expected. They all applauded and cheered when we came in and then more or less left us be the rest of the night. There were lots of "congratulations" from passing guests on our way to the disco but everyone really left us alone for dinner. I really did feel like we were the only ones on the terrace!

How many gazebos are there?  3 total?  Yesenia sent me the options and I see a North-Tulum Gazebo and a South-Coba Gazebo.  But it does look like there are two different gazebos on the south side.  Can you clarify for me please?  Thanks!!

I'm really glad I backed out and chose the comp package because the ocean is an amazing backdrop on its own and if you do the ceremony the judge sets up you are only there about 15 minutes anyways.

 

We chose the Tulum Gazebo for the privacy and it was lovely. Yes, there is a fence right by it but it doesn't hinder the view of the ocean and it's dark green so it's not as attention grabbing as you'd think. The photographer just made special effort to work around it. Ladies, I will tell you that ALL of the gazebos are lovely- it just depends what you're looking for. I wanted Coba at first, but the steakhouse and lagoons overlook it too and I was leery of a big audience. The ones at each end have the best setup for after wedding rock access for photos. Have someone bring flip flops (or wear them) if you intend to go out on the rocks. there are holes in them and you WILL hurt yourself if you try to navigate them in heels.

I didn't have my reception at the Cove Terrace, but it was really nice. It is attached to the resort and overlooks the ocean. The views are AMAZING!

There are three different gazebos. Tulum Gazebo (north), Coba Gazebo (south) and Chichen Gazebo.,

 

Tulum is on the far north end, right by the end of the property. There is a green fence with jungle behind it on the north side, ocean to the east, lagoon area to the south and hotel rooms to the south/southwest. The Tulum Gazebo is white and I thought it had a red roof (but dont remember for sure). Here's the tulum gazebo view from the altar:

Coba was on the opposite end, sort of by Mundaca. It has the thatched roof and has ocean to the east, lagoon to the north/south, and mundaca to the west. I'm 99% sure this is Coba (on a stormy day), but I can't promise:

Chichen is kind of right in between the two. There is another gazebo for VIP members sort of nearby, lagoon around it and hotel behind it. I'm pretty sure Chichen is the one on the right of this pic but someone correct me if it's the other way around:

Based on the info I rec'd this is what Coba looks like.  I was just a bit confused cause some pictures show it with a white 2 board horizontal fence while others show it with a light brown vertical fence (middle pic).  Thank you for showing me what Chichen looks like Steph.

Yeah, there are definitely some inconsistencies with the pictures and reality... In our packet, Tulum Gazebo had a white roof but it actually had a brick red (not ugly) roof when we got there. I never checked out the Coba railings- I just noticed its location and ruled it out on the spot (because crowds terrify me). :-)

Oh ok.  Thanks again for all your insight.

 

Did you have a cocktail hour?  If so, what location did you pick?
