    Hey everyone,

    Here is a link to my photos of my trip...I mostly attached pictures of the Mayan because that is where I am going to have my wedding. If you want a descriptions of my photos...do THE SLIDESHOW...IT EXPLAINS THE PICTURES.

    Yahoo! Photos - Amy s Scouting Trip

    MY REVIEW:

    I just went to PV for 3 short days...it was amazing. The first night I
    stayed downtown and I almost reconsidered my idea of a PV wedding. I had
    never been to PV until then. We stayed by restaurant row and it was fun of
    people partying and tons of fun restaurants and shops. The beach was nice
    but not what I thought it would be. For me...it wasn't where I invisioned
    my wedding.

    The next day we went to Dreams...then I knew I made the right decision to
    have it in PV. Dreams is a beautiful place for a wedding....very private
    AND secluded. We got there early for our appt. with Marilu and they
    wouldn't let us in. We took a walk about a block up the street and found a
    really cute restaurant to eat breakfast called La Playita Beach restaurant
    at Linda Mar hotel. It was good find...it has it's own private rocky
    beach...and the manager quoted us $95 pesos pp per hour to have a rehearsal dinner there including drinks. Fun idea if you are going to have your
    wedding at Dreams. PROS:private/SECLUDED beach ceremony/reception on the beach CON: you have to pay extra for non-guests..YOU HAVE TO LEAVE AT 11PM...Marilu might work with us though..she said she was going to see if my guests and I could hang out at the bar until 2am

    Then we went to Mayan...oh my goodness...this place took my breath way. The pictures on the internet don't do it justice. Marcos, the wedding planner
    there is really easy to work with and gets back to you really quickly.
    Marilu at Dreams tends to take a while. The Jetty (grass area) is where the
    wedding would be...I wasn't sure if I liked the idea...I really wanted to
    get married on the beach in the sand. I have reconsidered...the view from
    the Jetty is amazing...its like your in the water. PROS: private beach
    ceremony/reception perfect for small weddings...WE get to leave at 2am!!!
    CONS: I can't think of any.

    Lastly we went to the Westin. I think this place is beautiful too but
    better for a large wedding. I am only going to have around 40 people so we
    would only get 2 or 3 pergulas on the beach.
    PROS: beach sand ceremony/reception on beach under pergulas (really
    beautiful) CONS: Not as private for a small wedding...better for bigger
    weddings.

    So I made my decision on the Mayan...I am so excited the place is so trendy
    and the Mayan influence makes it a very unique hotel. I like how private it
    is for a small wedding...the other two aren't as private for smaller
    weddings. I also like the idea that we get to stay until 2am...also there
    is a fire pit in the outdoor reception area...I think that will be fun for
    the reception.

    We have also changed our wedding date from June until February of next year now. The weather there right now is perfect...summers can get really hot there. I am so excited...I'll be getting married in a year now...instand of
    year and half now. Goodness I have lots to do.

    As for restaurants...we haven't decided on a rehearsal dinner spot yet...to
    be honest we didn't eat a lot...we were too busy going to the hotels...we
    tended to just get a muffin or drink when needed. We mostly sampled
    appetizers and had a drink...so I don't know if I am the best to ask about
    how it tastes. I am not a big eater so it was hard for me to eat alot
    because we wanted to go to as many places as possible. I will say that all
    the appetizers we great at all the places except one place (El Dorado...but
    their dinners might be better??) As for beautiful views and great
    appetizers Las Palomas...El Palomar..El Felipe...La Playita...my
    photographer recommended the El Kliff but we didn't get time to go there. I
    wanted to try others but we ran out of time.

    I was going to do a full dinner but now I am considering doing appetizers
    only...it was so expensive for me at most of those places when you included
    drinks into the price...I only wanted to spend between 30-35 pp. I might
    just have my rehearsal dinner at the Mayan...Marcos said he could work
    something out. Or I might look into Barcelona Tapas...who had their
    reception there I wish I would have tried it.

    Well...I hope I was some help...you all have helped me so much...all your
    comments really helped guide me on my trip to PV. All the hotels there were
    amazing...it is really hard to choose one.

    One more word of advice...if you take a taxi from the airport...go over the
    bridge on the outside of the airport to get a taxi...those are the local
    taxi drivers and they won't charge you as much as the airport take drivers.
    We only paid 10 pesos from the airport to Old PV downtown....we stayed at
    Los Arcos Hotel. Also...if you can bring someone who speaks Spanish it can
    help you get better prices and advance. My friend that came with me was
    born in Mexico...she was like my planner...I got an excellent price for my
    wedding...I know it was all because of her. Everyone told me I wouldn't get
    my price without a planner...I stayed within my budget of less than $7000
    for everything.

    Well thanks again for all your help...if you can think of any questions let
    me know.

    Amy

                Ahh! Thats the beauty of Mexico, I couldn't get that here in CA so I had to go to PV, haha!

                No really, this place is not as pricey as it seems. Why do you think we jumping on the opportunity! Some one else said that they wanted "Nordstroms on a Target Budget" -- well I'm right there with you!

                PM me if you want pricing info!
