    We did do a rehearsal the day before and it was completely pointless and a waste of time. They have nothing set up and so it is just "use your imagination" for where things are. I wouldn't bother with a rehearsal, use that time to soak up the sun on the beach!

      I am wondering how expensive this place is going to be for guests.
      I know that Kathy said that her guests went over to the Lindo and didn't have problems but I thought I'd just give you a heads up that while we were there I did see staff monitoring bracelets and a few times I saw them asking Beach/Del Mar guests to return to their property (especially at the lazy river).

        Well said, Kristin!! :)

        Re: Wave pool/lazy river? Really? Maybe they clamped down on security since February I guess. I never went over there during my stay but some people in my group said they got away with it. Oh well! hehe

          You have to pay a deposit? To my knowledge they just want a copy of your credit card but dont actually charge anything. Maybe this is just the Lindo.

          Sorry you are having such problems! have you looked directly on their website? Sorry I only have the Lindo's email.

            They asked for a copy of a credit card and a drivers license but we were able to black out some #'s on the credit card but they didn't charge a deposit

                    my date's coming up quickly w/ no word from reyna on our last details so all that can be done is to sit and wait. in the meantime, ladies i've been wondering....did you research your resort options before deciding on iberostar mexico? i didn't research at all when i chose them...i just knew they were our most cost-effective (translation: cheapest) alternative at the time. everything seems to turn out well once you arrive and sit w/ reyna face to face but i've been wondering if all resorts have this time lag in communication. after having to go through the roller coaster of events in mexico the last few months then topping it off w/ a non-responsive wedding coordinator, would the just-married ladies choose this resort again? are brides to be who aren't hearing back from reyna deciding to take their business elsewhere? I feel that maybe that's what i should have done when it took over a month and many faxes of id and credit card info to set the date w/ gabriella. maybe i'll change my tune once i return from mexico but i've been wondering if the whole experience could have been different depending on the resort? sorry for being a downer...i'm just venting and also curious about the what ifs....
