Anyone worried about the large sand bags on the beach?

Recommended Posts

Those look horrible...especially in the pictures ...I mean ...you come to get marry in the Caribbean and you have those sort of bags there (Commercial port style) ...personally I dont like at all , so for this reason that when I choose a beach for my clients , I AVOID all those beaches they have sand bags ...so I suggest you to choose the right choice!! Congratulation!!!

I think they are absolutely horrible but to each their own. I made special care last year researching resorts that don't have them. Honestly, I think they are ALL gone. Check Trip Advisor for the most recent shots of the beaches, but I am pretty sure you will find that no resorts have these monstrosities anymore.

Cool - I wasn't sure as this was an old thread - I definitely feel better about it. Thanks for all the insight ladies. And when we go down in May to check out resorts we'll make sure we check out the beach quality.

The GBP Akumal still has them. I was there for NYE this year and we're getting married there this month. They didn't both us at all. People were playing on them and having a great time. They also made the water from the beach to them lots more family friendly! To each his own I guess!

Agreed with jeff. As far as photos go, if you hire a good photographer you won't have to worry about them in photos.

I was worried about the same thing. I was looking at the El dorado and all the wedding pics they show online or with TA have those in the back ground...

I stayed at the Royal Hideaway in the Riviera Maya, wonderful resort but the sand bags really looked terrible and with the waves pounding against them made the water unswimable. But the resort had a great pool so that worked for me :)

Yeah - We're not worried about them being in pictures at all as we're not getting married at the resort. My concern was just more about the ability to have fun in the water by the shore without having massive obstacles in the way. Can't imagine if you were body boarding and you hit one those it would feel too good. Either way we'll see the second weekend in May when we take our site visit.

 

Thanks!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
