    Thanks so much for all the great info. I had a few other questions if you don't mind me asking. What was the atmosphere at the pool/beach area during the day? Music? Activites? I will have several early 20 year olds (my sons and cousins) and I want them to be able to have some fun during the day not just lay at the pool. We have been to MP before and know that they offer a million things, however, we love PDC and this resort is a huge draw because of the perfect location. I like the intimate feel of the resort as well, just want to make sure my guests are entertained during the day. Best of both worlds I guess.I am sure they will venture into town at night. Thanks for any feedback on this. Happy Thanksgiving.



    HI!  Sure no problem.  To be honest, they have some things going on but they are a tad bit lame for "20 somethings" in my opinion.  The most fun we all had was beach & pool volley ball, but don't forget that they can go to the other palace resorts.  We went to Aventura Spa Palace on night and it seemed like they had a lot going on. It is a hugh property.  Good Luck!..happy thanksgiving to you too!!

      Tanya,

      Thanks again for all the great info. I am sure I will be asking more questions as they come up. We are planning a site visit in June so that should help some as well. I would prefer to have my resort decided on beforehand, but if not, owell. Thanks again.

        Ladies - I am in the airport coming back from my wedding.....OMG!! I love PP it was incredible - the staff is amazing and we had the time of our lives.

         

        During the day they have the normal activities by the pool - the resort also allowed us to throw a pool party - we rented DJ equipment (as we had 3 DJs in our group) and had an amazing time, the resort loved it so much they said they might do it weekly b/c so many guests had fun

         

        For the ladies who have been - Its my pleasure - for the ones still to go you will understand lol

              Congratulations! I can't wait to hear all about it. I've been a total slacker and haven't done anything wedding related since August. I feel like there are a million things I should be doing and it's gonna catch up to me really fast. Please post lots of pictures!

                    CamilleA, I would love to know more about your Pool Party. My guests would love this. Who did you set it up with? Did you set it up once you were there? Did you have any food? Or just drinks? How much was the DJ for this? thanks for any info.

                    Soundsl like a blast.

                      Tanya Marie and CamilleA,

                       

                      I still haven't chosen what resort to have my DW at.  So far, I think I've narrowed it to Sandos Playacar and Playacar Palace.  I really do love that PP is more intimate and the fact that you don't have to walk very long to get around on the resort. However, the only real big thing that I am concerned about is Photo Ops.  It doesn't look like there are a lot of places on the resort to take different types of pictures. So, my question is where did you ladies end up taking your pictures (the bride and groom pics)?

                       

                      I'm at work right now, so I can't open Tanya Marie's pictures, but if you included them in there, please ignore this question (I will check them when I get home) :)

                       

                      Also, did they have options for live music on the beach?  I was interested in hiring a Mariachi band, but have no idea how much they cost at the Palace Resorts.

                       

                      And the last question is did you hire outside photographers?  If so, who did you pick?  And did the resort allow it as long as you bought them a day pass? I was thinking of going with Octavio Montes, but I want to keep my options open, just in case.
