the "haciendas" are in red. they have 8 rooms per building wich I thought might be nice to rent one for the family. they have their own pool per building but are the oldest and in the middle of the resort.

the basic room are the "beach"rooms in purple. least expensive, close to everything, veiws of ocean but older and loud!

I dont know wich ones to book for my family and friends
Thanks for posting that! That's a tough one...which one to book. The one negative thing I heard about Sandos Playacar on trip advisor is that people book one thing and are obviously expecting that, and are disappointed when they get another (not what they wanted). That's tempting me to just leave it up to, we get what we get. On the other hand, it's nice to know and get what you want. Shrug.

Sorry, that wasnt helpful at all!

Thanks for posting that review sspiris! I've been dealing with Paola and I can see what this bride is saying about her, and I've learned that I have to be really specific with Paola as she can 'glaze' over some tough questions, and I will often paraphrase her answer just to be sure. I'm hoping it was also because she was overwhelmed with having the second wedding there that day. I will be emailing her directly with my question about the day pass, just to be sure and I will let you know what she says.

I just wanted to clarify the room/area information... yes, the blue section is the Riviera Section but it is not considered the Royal Elite.

 

Royal Elite Rooms are the timeshare/vacation club rooms... they are located throughout the resort in each section...

 

Another thing they have is the Select Club... these rooms are also located throughout each section but they are simply rooms with upgraded perks... champage/wine/fruit welcome basket, robe & slippers, coffee maker in the room, iron in the room, admission to Select section of the beach and the Select Club lounges located in the lobby - with free internet.

 

We stayed in the Beach section and it was great... our beachfront room overlooked the wedding hut!

 

Suggestions for your guest would depend on what kind of vacation they are looking for... fun/interactive/busy - beach section... few kids/quite/relaxing - riviera section

i posted some of my questions and her answers for you guys

 

 

Dear Miss Keila

 

 

Greetings form Sandos Playacar... first at all congratulations! It will be my great pleasure to assist you with this very special occasion. Rest assured that we will make this moment one to remember! Enclosed please find the wedding packages that we will apply until June 2010 and let me know your choice and if you would like to move to the next step. Our ceremonies take place on the beach. Remember that if you will have a legal wedding you have to arrive at least 3 working days prior the ceremony.

 

 

We can also organize you a private dinner or party afterwards (extra charge applies).

 

 

Please find all my answers in blue

 

 

Since I am a Royal Elite member I already get a lot of the things in the "symbolic Caribbean package" such as discounts at spa, robes, fruit baskets...Would it be less expensive for me to just get the basic package and upgrade from there?

 

You can get the Sandos Symbolic or Legal package and from there you can add the extras such as:

 

 

For private events these are the new prices for this 2009, i'll work with these prices at least until July 2010.

2. I am wanting to get married around 5:00 on the beach and then do a cocktail hour in the wedding hut while we take pictures before dinner. I don't need "open bar" I just want to have a champagne toast and the signature "Sandos" drink (it is orange and pink and those are my wedding colors) I would also like an appetizer served.

So how much per adult would it be to have an appetizer and Sandos' served in the wedding hut after the ceremony?

I would need seating in the wedding hut for about 10 (we have some elderly grandparents that cant stand for more than a few minutes)

Please find attached the menus for the appetizer...(please see Sales Canapes ING)

And of course I can set a couple of extra chairs at the wedding hut while they wait

 

 

3. Can you send me a list of dates that are still available in June and July of next year? In June I have a wedding booked on the 16th & 26th. July still free for now, they are starting to book.

 

 

4. Can you get married on weekdays?

We can do it from Monday to Saturday (Sunday is possible as long as it is a symbolic wedding)

5. what needs to happen for me to reserve a date? When you have a wedding date please fill the form attached (Formato Wedding P), sign it ans scan it for me with your hotel booking number in order to confirm your wedding date and work in details. I do not need a deposit, you pay for your wedding package here in the hotel the following day of our appointment.

 

6. I would like to see an example of the resort photographers work on photos and the wedding video.

Enclosed please find some examples.

 

 

7. do you only have a red carpet for the isle or do you have more colors?

We have a long and a short red carpet. If you want to have a satin white I can give your the price and make it for you.

 

 

8. For the ceremony set up I want tons of pink and orange petals up the isle and then the bamboo thing at the front will we will be standing drapped with a white material and a flower medallion of pink and orange flowers in both corners. How much of that is extra if I go with the basic package and how much?

I attached a pic to show you what I would like

 

During this time of the year we can try to put the rose petals; but, with the breeze of the see it is almost impossible they stay on the aisle, sometimes they have a flower girl that has a basket and do some. The gazebo with tulle is $220 usd and the two flower medallions will be extra $90 usd

 

9. is there a microphone in the wedding hut?Yes we do have one for toasts

 

 

10. can I have my own music playing in the wedding hut?

Of course you can bring a CD or IPOD to play your special music

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
