Puerto Rico Brides!

Recommended Posts

I stayed in Da House about a year and a half ago and LOVED it!! Definitely go for it if you want a small boutique feel. Two things to consider: it's four floors with no elevator; its above a popular salsa bar, and the noise echos throughout, so don't plan on getting to bed early.

We decided to book the Villa Sevilla for the whole week.

I looked at Da House Hotel & it looks nice too, but I think we will just stay at the Villas and make a day trip to San Juan area.

 

Actually we still need a few more "villa" type places if anyone knows of another place.

My entire family (of 24) will be staying at the Villa Sevilla but now my FI wants something similar for his friendshuh.gif?

Any other suggestions out there?

hcookma,

Thanks for your review! I have a couple of people wanting to stay here & I'll pass the info along.

 

I'm officially booked.

Put a deposit down on the hotel, cake, flowers & signing a contract a photog today. Yikes!

I think "villas" would be more economical because people can group together & split the cost.
They can be located pretty much anywhere. I want my guests to be able to experience San Juan & other parts of the island.

Thanks for any feedback!!!
The only villas that I know about, are the ones at Villa Sevilla. I have no idea if they are any good, I haven't booked anything with them (but I am thinking about it for our honeymoon)

Here is their website: Welcome to Villa Sevilla Guest House, Rio Grande, Puerto Rico

Here is their tripadvisor page: Welcome to Villa Sevilla Guest House, Rio Grande, Puerto Rico

As for other Inns in San Juan, I have heard good things about The Gallery Inn and The Coqui Inn. There are of course the more typical cheaper options like Holiday Inn, Howard Johnson.

I would really recommend you by the Frommer's Guide to Puerto Rico-- they have really great advice and recommendations for where to stay in PR that fits ALL budgets.

Look in the Condado area. Its just outside of San Juan and much cheaper. I love At Windchimes Inn for the price, service, and location. They also have a sister hotel that is about a year old called Acacia Inn. The Gallery Inn is way too expensive and difficult to deal with-see my review for details.

Another PR bride here! I'll only be there a day though... we're taking a cruise and getting married when we stop in San Juan. I haven't made any solid plans yet, but I'm in love with The Ritz. I'm sure it'll be way out of my budget, so if anyone knows of anywhere nice kinda close to the port, I'd love to hear about it! I'll take any recommendations I can get!

Hey Puerto Rico Brides!!

I'm happy to tell you that although my FI and I decided to postpone our April 2009 wedding, we already have a new date set and will continue with planning our wedding. When we initially decided to postpone our wedding I thought I needed a "wedding planning break". I went to visit my bf in Chicago (to get away) & even went to the Oprah show! Anyhow I cut my mini vacation short & was back home the very next day and ready to pick a wedding date! My FI was shocked but super happy.

So I'm back! Still a Puerto Rico Bride just with a few more months added to my ticker! :)

Hey Girls!

Yes we are still getting married at El Conquistador. Actually today we will be signing the new contracts. It's either going to be April 10, 2010 or April 17, 2010. I'm waiting to hear back from my wedding planner regarding the availability on the 10th.

-I never spent much time reading through the contracts with the resort. I just knew El Conquistador was the place and that's it. Come to find out that if we had decided to postpone (w/o future date) not only would we have lost ALL the money we paid on deposits (ceremony site @ resort,food & liquor,rooms,etc..) we would have been expected to PAY the resort approx an additional $5000.00!!!!! The only reason we were not penalized was because FI Dad passed away so the resort waived penalty fees!- SO,BEWARE OF THE CONTRACTS!!!!!!!!

 

So tell me girls, how's the planning going?

Have you guys bought your dress? Did I miss the pictures?

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
