    Hi! Just got back from wedding and honeymoon at Lindo. Will post pics and review soon. We got upgraded to Lindo since the del Mar and Beach were closed due to low occupancy but still had the wedding at the del Mar side since that is what we had originally booked. The del Mar re-opened 2 days prior to the wedding but was pretty empty so the ceremony ended up being really private. Reyna was great (although they picked me up 25 minutes late and the guests and guys had to wait in the sun!). It all worked out really well! No signs of swine flu, the resort is awesome and all of the guests had a blast. We enjoyed working with Sascha Gluck and look forward to seeing our pics soon! Thanks for your support and help along the way girls!

      I had this same exact question, does anyone know if I cna just pay everything with a Credit card? The entire wedding, cocktail party, etc? I think the DJ needs to be in cash. What about the hair services?QUOTE]

      We charged all of our wedding expenses to our credit card, including all of the spa services that we used. They just add any spa services to your room bill. They are pretty eager to get their money for the wedding. They want you to pay on the day of your wedding. After the meeting with the WC where you make all of your final decisions about flowers, etc. they will provide you with a complete list detailing the amount for you to confirm before you go to pay.

      When they charge your credit card it is all done in Pesos and is coverted by your credit card company. Also, the resort does not cash US travellers cheques for US cash, they will only give you Pesos which was a pain in the a**. For that reason I would encourage taking more cash than travellers cheques (although you can exchange for US in Playa del Carmen). We ended up getting stuck with a bunch of US travellers cheques.

      Hope this helps you out! Let me know if I can answer anything else.
      Thanks so much Kristin!

Everything else except the $300 fee to the photo shop for not using them is charged to your room in pesos as ryan's girl mentions above. The spa fee can also be charged to your room. The fee to the photo shop can be paid by credit card.
      Thank you!
