jamaicasukie, i'm an iberostar beach bride and i can't tell you enough how i didn't see any real difference between each property...i had a scouting visit last fall.
its best to keep an open mind..if you end up at the beach your day will be just as beautiful...also, the beach property tends to be more cost efficient for traveling guests. there were a few brides who booked the suites then hopped over to the beach because of price AND the beach property has a very nice beach site for your wedding..if you choose to have the ceremony beachside. its also closest to the beach gazebo..if you're having a small ceremony, it'll fit between 12-15 guests.
i'm sure it'll all work out for the best!
until next time, happy planning!!!
