    Hey Mike - if you don't mind me asking....where did you guys get married? I have been looking into a few local places. Just wondering what your feedback was on your ceremony.

      no i don't mind we had a civil ceremony at our house, very relaxed. You can find out that information through city hall. We only told close members of family, just becasue we didn't want people to get pissed at us, so we just kept it small. Saving the party for the cocktail reception when we get back. We have 10 people going, kinda small but it will work. how many are you guys having come down Leslie?

          We are having 50 people come down. We aren't doing anything at home when we get back, Mexico is it :)

          Apparently a whole new part of the resort opened up this last week, a Spanish tapas restaurant with flanco show, a piano bar and 144 new rooms and a pool :))) All things I love!

            I read that on their site....its going to be freakin fantastic!!!!! Does anyone know if they have a trolley that runs through the resort to take you from point A to point B? My grandparents are planning on coming and I was just curious for them.

            There are golf carts that will take you places, however they only run on the outskirts of the hotel and there is only one Not sure. But you might have to wait a little bit.

              Hi all,

              Just got back early Sunday morning from our week long wedding trip at the GRP. Was super nervous and aprehensive about this hotel, based solely on the Trip Advisor reviews. I waited all week for something to go wrong, but it never did. This hotel exceeded every single one of our expectations and then some. The staff accomodated our every request and the wedding was more stunning and beautiful than we could have hoped for. I am hoping to put a review together over the next week or so. Ease your worries if you have booked here: it is a fantastic resort!

                That's soooo awesome to actually hear!!! I'm so excited, I really can't wait till April!! Were the new areas open when you were there?? Did you deal with Patricia, she's been awesome to me, and what package did you pick? Did you do a private reception? or just the reception dinner in an a la carte?? if so which one...oh lord, I can't wait to read your review!! lol

                  just got back monday, had a blast everything was great! continental breakfest in the morning complete with oj and champain! Wedding went well, if you bring a ipod or mp3 player the guy will play your music if you want while your walking down the isle. If not he plays some mexican music. Food was good, we had allicate 6 of the nights. The dinner the day of the wedding doesn't count againtest your intitled 4. But we booked for the 5th and 6th time, and we got it anyways. They didn't even ask. It was our second time there, and everything was great again. The shows got a little better. But there was always something to do.

                    The allicarts, we had the most luck with La flure, Mama Mia's, international, the grill, and chinese (can't remember what they called it), Not so much with tapinyaki, mind you the performance was great but the food had way to much butter in it. The spanish food...for me, well its a good thing they had the flamingo show (dancing) cause it distracted me away form the crappy food...:) Didn't go bak to la fondu, cause it was really bad the first time, there chocolate is really diffrent then ours, don't believe me, try their deserts at the buffet.
