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 friends?
Any other suggestions out there?

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!

Better yet, do you know of any "villas" in the vicinity?
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!!!

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.[/QUOTE]
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.

I was originally a cruise bride but decided we wanted to spend more time with our guests so we will be getting married in SJ first & then sailing off on our cruise honeymoon.
When's your wedding date?

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!

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?
