    Just got back on Thursday from my wedding at Sandos, WOW! The resort is beautiful! Lupita was AWESOME and took care of everything once we arrived!

     

    All of our guests (there was 23 of us) stayed in the Haciendas (the premiere haciendas near the meeting point. No complaints, except the pillows and beds were awful! I recommend to anyone to at least bring your own pillow. Otherwise each Hacienda had their own private pool which was a BLAST. A couple nights we all drank by the pool and had a great time!

     

    Wedding was at 5:30 on the beach. We started pictures around 2-2:30. I hired Doranna to do hair and makeup, she does freelance work and lives in Playa, and she did a FANTASTIC job! Recommend her to anyone, she was perfect!! Definately recommend a wedding at a later time as it was way too hot around lunch time. After the wedding we took group photos and headed over to the italian restaurant as its more private. Food was good and cake was OK.

     

    Overall, loved the resort. Entertainment is wonderful! The decor is beautiful, and the ocean is breathtaking! If you have any questions feel free to ask!

     

    Here are a few pics from our special day..

            Hair and Makeup??????

             

             

            Hi ladies,

            I'm getting married June 29th at Sandos and I'm realizing I should have booked hair and makeup already! I've read on here that hair and makeup at the resort isn't great. Can anyone make a recommendation?!?! HELP! :)

                We didn't have our reception there, but a bunch of us went and had dinner at Alux Cave one evening. We found the food to be quite overpriced, but overall it was a really cool experience, and we really enjoyed the tour of the cave.

                 

                There was a wedding reception happening while we were there and it looked pretty cool. My only concern would he the heat and humidity in the cave! It was VERY warm and very humid so I wouldn't imagine that you would want to dance in there...would likely be a very sweaty situation!

                      Hi! Can't wait to hear about your wedding. I'm wondering, with 70 guests did you do a seating chart for the dinner?? I have about 90.
