    The asian restaurant was my favorite! Mundaca is the steakhouse, which was really good too. I didn't like Hacienda, the Mexican one, it took almost 1 hour to have our appetizer/

    So what did you guys end up doing at the resort on the days it rained?

     

    Also, did you and your guests mostly enjoy the food there? Any specific restaurant that you would suggest? Did you eat at Mundaca?

     

    Sorry for all the questions!! My mind has been racing this past week...

      So what did you guys end up doing at the resort on the days it rained? - most guests used all the resort credit in the spa so they were always in there, some hung out in the lobby, we were in the indoor pool area playing volleyball, eating, ordering room service, playing pool.  There are lots of stuff to do.  Don't worry about that at all.

       

      Also, did you and your guests mostly enjoy the food there? In my review I talk about each place we ate at.  Ill post that very soon.  Any specific restaurant that you would suggest? They are mostly all very good.  You can't go wrong.  Try to try each one.  Did you eat at Mundaca? I didn't because I am a vegetarian but half of our guests did the last night and said it was good.

        Taryn, did your guests book their Spa services in advance or wait until they got to the resort?If they waited until they got there, did they have trouble making appt bc it filled up? I was pushing for people to do it beforehand, but then I got nervous that they wouldn't be able to use all their resort credit at the Spa (people at the resort were telling me that they only get that if they booked June 1st and after...otherwise, they could only spend $300 at the Spa). They are driving me absolutely insane with this resort credit and the Spa! I Just can't get a straight answer out of anyone. I didn't want my guests booking all this stuff and then have to pay for it out of pocket.

          I told everyone to book ahead of time.  I booked my appt for a massage for both me and my sis and pedicures for all the girls the day of the wedding ahead of time.  Everyone else booked once they got there and there were definitely some issues but everyone was able to get at least one thing at the spa - some were able to get something done everyday.  You will have to ask your travel agent or the person you booked with at the resort how many total credits you have to use and how many you can use at the spa.  It all depends on when you booked and how many days you are staying.

            Review finally posted.

            Ask any questions you have. 

             

            One thing I forgot to mention was the music.  We provided the CD for the ceremony and they did a good job of playing what we told them to, cut the music when we asked and faded it out when needed.

                Hey Aventura ladies!

                 

                Wanted to share our wedding videos in case anyone is interested. We had to edit them and separate them into 3 videos.  You gotta watch the Opening which is David and the bridal party dancing down the aisle.  Its great!! 

                 

                Opening:

                  Hey ladies....just returned last night from our week long stay at Aventura Spa and it was beyond AMAZING!!!!! Our stay was literally perfect from beginning to end! The wedding was gorgeous, weather was perfect (even though the forecast was sayiing rain), and the service was incredible. I can't say enough good things about this resort. The grounds are so beautiful and they literally wait on your hand and foot. I was disappointed when I had to come home and cook my own food and do my own dishes.

                   

                  I will have to post some pictures soon. We used the resort photographer and videographer since we purchased the Amber package. Our photo album and DVD came in the mail today already and we LOVE them. They turned out better than I could have ever imagined!! I have looked at the pictures like 20 times and watched the DVD 3 times already haha. Cristina was our WC and she did an AMAZING job putting everything together so last minute...I don't know how those ladies do it, but they do it well!

                   

                  We were so happy with how everything turned out and would not change a thing...I was literally blown away by how perfect it was None of our guests were ready to leave when the time came. Any questions, please feel free to ask! You can look for me on facebook under Amber Miller from Kutztown (if that doesn't work, try from Allentown). Some of our guests posted pictures on fbook...

                    I just realized that there aren't alot of great pictures on my facebook page from the wedding...I do have a slideshow of pictures that my brother-in-law took if anyone wants to see that. Message me with your email address and I will forward you the page with alot of pictures from Aventura...
