    I was just there last April and  didn't notice any problems with seaweed.  I thought the beach was very nice - not the best I have ever been to, but nowhere near the worst.  However, I am more of a pool person.

      I have been there twice in September but I am getting married in May. There was some seaweed but it was nothing to complain about. I was swimming in the ocean everyday. The seaweed is only along the water & they actually "comb" it everyday with a tractor to pick it up. Agreed its not the nicest beach I have been too but its still blue water & white sand & their pools are awesome!

        We were married there in May and the beach was beautiful. There was a tiny, tiny amount of seaweed and my husband and I kept saying to each other -- "Is this what they were talking about on TripAdvisor?" There was so little it was not worth mentioning.

          Thanks so much, ladies! I figured the people that posted about the seaweed might be more sensitive than average and what you all are describing sounds beautiful.

           

          On another note, I'm not getting a very fast response from the wedding coordinator and its starting to worry me about the rest of the response if it takes them this long to get back to me on the first exchange. I read on some of the other chains some glowing reviews for the Wedding Coordinator that used to be there but I guess she is now working in another department. How was your experience with the current wedding coordinator? Also, I emailed weddings.xpm@excellence-resorts.com, does anyone have another email I should try?

           

          Thank you!

            That's the email address. I would give them a week for their responses until they assign a specific WC for you. Then hopefully it won't take as long.

                Hi Everyone,

                 

                So I got sent the packages for my choices for flowers, centerpieces, etc. While we like a few things (like the boutonni¨re choices) there was nothing that fit my vision in the flower choices, centerpieces etc. How do you go about making changes to what is offered? Do we show them a picture of a bouquet that we like and ask them how much it would be to upgrade to it? What about food choices? Can we make adjustments to the menu? I also asked her about getting linens and extra d©cor, and while she sent me a price list, she did not provide choices. So again, do I just show her pictures of what we like and then she will give us a price?

                 

                Thanks!

                  Okay, so I just read something scary! On trip advisor, one bride has posted that the new wedding cooridnator has now told her that they changed the policy and outside third party photographers cannot be brought in to EPM, you must use their photographer Blue Cribe. She is fighting with them about it but they are saying no (and her wedding is in three months). I know many of us were told that outside vendors were okay! I don't want to leave my pictures up to Blue Cribe as they are no where near as good as some of the other photographers that shoot at the resort a lot (like Del Sol!). How can they change this rule now and why do they think that all brides would be okay with that?

                    I already put a deposit down on an outside photographer.  I feel like they cannot change that policy after they have already said that we are allowed to bring in outside vendors...
