      sol,

      as you said:
      "These not only happens at big resorts, even small and pretty ones are guilty of the same thing.., so pay attention! and get what YOU want...."

      "GET WHAT YOU WANT"... this was the best advise i received when i was down there... you definitely have to get what you want... you've paid a large sum of money to these resorts / vendors... so if its not the way you wanted, or expected, let them know... make sure you get what you pay for...

      Julie...

          Great tips. How wonderful are you to let us in on all the secrets. One wedding I was at we had to keep waiting for swimmers to get out of our frames before we took any photos! Of course they were kids and wanted to be in the picture.lol

                  Sol, thank you for the tips! I will be in the area next month to choose one of our top 7 hotels (it was 23) and would have never thought about the shower, or the chairs!

                  Happy planning!!
