We did the Gold Menu with the Surf & turf, Mango shrimp salad, I don't remember what we did for a soup but DON'T do the tortilla soup it's disappointing, and the bruschetta as an App. Overall the food at the resort was good(Italian place my personal fav), the only place we didn't try was the sushi place and I personally wasn't impressed with the Mexican restaurant, their salsa or hot sauce tasted like spaghetti sauce lol.I'm from Texas and am really picky about my Mexican food. The buffet was good too, you can get breakfast in the morning, they make omlettes for you and towards dinner they open up again. For the reception we did the round tables on the beach, we brought some of our own decorations, like table runners in my wedding color, and just a bunch of extra stuff to place on there. Also,(if you are getting some) we requested that the mariachis play during our dinner, which was fun, made it more lively, and they took pics with us before. We didn't have a DJ or dance floor, just put a bunch of good songs on our Ipod, hooked it up to the speaker, danced on the sand and we were set(my brother managed the music if it needed to be paused or changed)! Afterward we all headed to the night club, danced and drank some more! I know my cake wasn't the correct flavor that I had picked out, which I really wasn't too upset over, I never had a personal dressing assitant like it said I would in my package, my cake was supposed to have flowers on it and didn't(which was immediately corrected) My husband and I said we would both go back to the resort, my family and friends also enjoyed it. With our experience we found that the service was good and everyone was attentitive.Our room was ocean view so that was nice, very safe area, you can walk to town for shopping and go swim with the dolphins in the marina.
Alison- It was a little windy during that time also.
