      Dreaming of sunshsine,

      I was wondering if you could get me the infor for that tour at chitchen itza.  A lot of my guests want to do the tour.  If you could email it to me that would be great. shell288@comcast.net

        Hi everyone,

         

        My wedding is in just a few weeks...we leave February 15th, and our wedding is February 19th.  We have 90 people coming and staying at the Riu Palace Riviera Maya!!!  Has any had a group that big?  I am concerned about the extra costs or if they will be able to accomadate a group that big...well, they don't have a choice.

          Virginia- No my dress didn't get ruined. I still have it, of course it would need to be dry cleaned which I still haven't done yet either. The Tulum Extreme we did I think was about a $100/person, but include all the activities and lunch. The half day trip I think was only about $40/person and only goes to Tulum. We had booked all our trips through apple vacations so we just booked the trips with our apple rep who is stationed in hotel. If you are booking so type of package they all have people in the lobby to book excurions. You can also go right into town and book excursions. Also, if you want to go to Tulum only with a larger group you could probably just hire a transportation service to take your whole group too.

           

          There is 5th avenue to buy things which is about a 15 min walk or 5 min cab ride like carolyn said, but there is another little place to the left of the hotel. It's about a 5 min walk that you can buy things at too. Walmart is right outside Playa about a 10 min cab ride too.

           

          Jrb-We only had about 54 people, but they had no problem handling it and I'm sure they won't have any problem handling yours either.

            Sounds great!  We, and most of our guests booked via Apple Vacations too, so I am excited to do some excursions!!

              I know I've probably read this a million times...but could someone remind me - is there an alcohol dispenser or mini bar in each room? How do they monitor the use or what is the refill policy?

               

              And - room service is all inclusive too, right?

                Virginia-Yes there is one in everyones room. There is so much alcohol throughout the resort to be honest we never even had any of ours. I don't think there is any specific refill policy. I know my cousin finished something and it was replaced the next time they came. Room service is all inclusive also and 24 hours/day.

                  Thanks Dana.

                   

                  Has anyone heard from Nancy lately? I emailed her a couple times with a few questions and she hasn't responded...she's usually pretty good with getting right back to me. Maybe she's on vacation...

                    Yes. I've been emailing her the week. It seems like there are so many extra charges! $25 pp for a private dinner. $14 pp for food at the cocktail. $700 for a fabc huppa on the beach. Then they wanted $15 pp for extra cake and sparkling wine. I don't really want either!! We have 87 people, so it's gonna get crazy expensive. Plus the cost of the wedding package. Ugh. Oh well. It's what I gotta do. I also got a price list for calypso photos. Also a rip-off.

                      JRB - I hear you. I sat down with my Mom to finalize budget and look at how much we've already spend versus what to expect. When I picked a destination wedding I never thought it would add up to as much as it is.  Oh well. I am trying to find out from Nancy how much it costs to rent their sound system. Anyone know?

                       

                      Also, does anyone have a good idea for a gift for my Dad? I got my Mom an embroidered hankerchief (thanks for the idea Lindsey!) that says "Today a bride, tomorrow a wife, forever your daughter. Thank you for teaching me to love with all my heart...[signed with my nickname and the date]." I need something small for my dad too...ideas?
