I thought we were going to have to pay uprfont and then be reimbursed later too, but when my TA sent me the final payment, I realized we only had to pay the difference in upgrade cost from the basic room and 1 full night, b/c we are staying 8...so we dont have to wait to be reiumbursed b/c we didnt have to pay to begin with....pretty sweet right!

·         “With a minimum of 20-24 paid rooms for 3 nights or 60 room nights, the bride and groom will receive an upgrade to a complimentary private event instead of a cocktail party (i.e. private dinner) and 4 complimentary room nights for the bride and groom.

 

·         With a minimum of 25 paid rooms for 3 nights or 75 room nights, the bride and groom will receive unlimited private functions and 7 complimentary room nights for the bride and groom. ***

***Free nights will be refunded post travel via the same payment form it was received through the group contract. We will not provide a credit for unused stays; it cannot be transferable to another party or good for future stays).   Online bookings orrooms booked through various operators do not qualify.â€

That is a sweet deal.  I've heard others say they got a check within a few weeks...not sure if it was from the resort or their TA. 

 

 

Nicole - I am so jealous that your wedding is so close.  You must be so excited...I am so excited for you.  I can't wait for this time next year.  :)

Sara why are you paying your total balance already? I thought the policy was final payment due 6 weeks before...our wasnt due till 9/19...thats why we already knew we had the 75 rooms booked...

That is a sweet deal...but we paid upfront too. My TA indicated that my credit card will be credited after we return but didn't say how soon after. I guess depending on who you work with you get the refund or immediate credit. My thought is that since the TA gets 30% commission on all of the bookings... so they may just be giving you some of their commission and then they keep  your room night credit once they receive it. Who knows! I'll just be glad to get some money back cheesy.gif

I would do Mundaca or El Greco. I FINALLY got my pictures- email me at steph3486 at yahoo.com and I can send out the album link if anyone wants it. We did the Tulum gazebo and Mundaca for dinner. We ate out on the terrace and it was fairly private. We only had 11 people so obviously there were some other guests on the terrace with us but no one was terribly close to us or anything as they kind of had us off to one side.

 

I thought our food at Ventanas was not very good at all- and the lighting was very Golden Corral-ish.

 

Momo no hana is actually very pretty inside but oriental food isn't very neutral if that is something you're worried about. We ate there 2x for dinner and both times were delicious.

I'm trying to get an idea of how close certain things are and which places are the best...so here we go:

 

Wedding -- My FI's only real request was to see me pull up in the horse and carriage.  I wanted to know if there was one Gazebo this is better situated for the horse and carriage to come closer than the other?  I know at least one of them drops you off quite a distance away.

 

Cocktail Party -- We know we want the Pandero Terrace for our cocktail reception, but it's not on the resort map (not that I can find anyway!?)  Can anyone tell me where this is in relation to either gazebo?

 

Dinner -- Because we are having an AHR, and we can't really afford a private dinner, we are going to be having our reception in one of the restaurants.  I was wondering if anyone could recommend one that they think would be the best and/or most private?  I though I was going to go with the Mundaca steak house because I believe there is a terrace outside that we could request to be on to make it a little bit more private, but now I'm not sure?  My choices are El Greco, Momo no hana, Ventanas or Mundaca.  I'm ruling out Momo no hana..but I don't know anything about the others.

 

Thanks for your help in advance!!

Was it a far walk for your guests to go from the Tulum Gazebo to the restaurant on the Cove side??  I was concerned about that, but I am having my cocktail party at the Pandero Terrace and I believe that is in between??

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
