    So if you get a free cocktail party, when will you use it?  I'm excited to have mine on Thursday night as a welcome party...that way we can enjoy it with our guests.

      Not sure if I missed this, but did you ever find out any details about using the resort dollars for a limo!?!

      I asked her about the fee for private events, about using palace dollars toward the video and toward limo services.

       

      I'll let you all know what she says.

        I'm waiting to hear back from Yesenia about the cost of upgrading rooms with resort dollars...I've been curious how much that runs...

          We sent our guests to the lobby bar for drinks while we took pics and it worked out just fine. Nobody was partying or anything, just hanging out until we got there, then we all hung out until dinner. It was nice to have some downtime between the organized events.

           

          One thing to keep in mind - the Spa side lobby bar has snacks but the Cove side lobby bar does not. (Not sure about the Cove side sports bar.) Even though our wedding was at 2pm and most people had eaten lunch, we were all hungry for snacks. I wish we would have bought snack mix in Playa for people to snack on during that time.

            Well its nice to know others did this and didn't have a problem with it.  I remember you mentioning the snacks.  I'll have to make a note of that.  :)

              Some how I missed this reply.

               

              Darn it - you are leaving the day before we fly in.  We will be at Aventura the 15th - 20th and then we head to Sun Palace for our honeymoon until the 24th.  My colors are turquoise, silver ans white.  I really have no clue on the number of guests....hoping between 20-30 but right now its 6 booked LOL!!!

              how many guests are you expecting?

               

              Are you staying the whole time at the resort?

                Ok ladies...got some quick responsed from Yesenia...and since she was on the ball today, I asked her about the limo too lol

                 

                So here is what I found:

                 

                Upgrade to ocean view -- approx. $126 a night

                Upgarde to concierge level -- $150 a night

                 

                She knows nothing of using the resort dollars for a limo, but she said to check with my WC.  On to Wilma!  I'll let you know if I have any success.

                    I didn't do an "official" cocktail party either. We sent the guests to the lobby bar so that we could take pictures. When we finished, the photog followed us to the lobby and we were able to take photos with guests and have a couple of drinks. From the cocktail party, we went to our reception.

                      Does anyone here have any knowledge or feedback for XCaret or Xplor?  We know we want to go to one of these parks, but aren't sure which one is the best to go to!?
