HELP! May be starting all over with only 3 months to go!

I'm SO NERVOUS! We're expecting 120 guests and I can't get the resort to confirm the location for the ceremony or reception. I called the wedding coordinator, the manager of the resort and the sales person who manages my group contract (for the 40+ rooms) today to say that I'm at my breaking point. I need this information or I will have to look elsewhere and all responded that they'd "call me back."
So I'm asking for your help!! I would like to consider other venues. I am open to other resorts - or even non resort locations. Did anyone have a great experience working with the wedding coordinators - actually at this point I'd even settle for a mediocre experience? Did anyone have a private reception for a large group?
Any suggestions or advice would be MUCH appreciated!

I did not use a travel agent. I contacted a few initially but found I could get the best rate for my guests if I did all the arrangements myself (you should see the spreadsheet I have with all the information - all 40+ reservations and their details!!) The GOOD news is that there is NO penalty to cancel with 60 days notice. I would have to find a new resort or at least a new reception site with availability on the same date (April 18th) because at least 70 of our guests have already booked their flight travel. But other than that I think I can get all of their money back. I would be out my initial wedding deposit but that seems minimal in the grand scheme of things.
With 120 expected guests - I can't wait til I get down there to accomplish the planning. When I called today I told them to book me a room for next week as I now feel it is absolutely essential that I iron out the details face to face and she told me she'd "have to check availability" ... its almost comical! I figure if I don't laugh ... I'll cry!
