Is anyone planning on getting married at the Westin in Marina Vallarta? I have not found much from people on their services but am very interested in the Hotel for our beach wedding in January. Any help you guys could provide would be awesome!!

I'm not planning to marry there but I am pretty sure that's where our guests will be staying. We're still wrestling with the hotel for the room rates we want. =)
John and I went EVERYWHERE, and I mean EVERYWHERE looking at the hotels this past November and we really liked the Westin best for a whole host of reasons. It's gorgeous for one, new and shiny and clean, practically empty so the place will be all yours (unlike the Marriot next door which is a mad house of golphers/corporate types plus W is more modern and newer), has the best pool in the Marina in my opinion, etc. etc. I could go on forever..... =) But yeah, we're just trying to get everything locked in at the rates we want and in pesos since the value of the dollar is sadlt declining. =(
I am sure if you choose the Westin your wedding will be fabulous! It's a gorgeous resort. Really! Congratulations on the wedding and good luck planning!

Can you share the rates you are currently getting quoted from the Westin? We have negotiated on the rates a little and it seems they are not budging but I would like to see them come down. I can send you my private email if you want to talk more about it but I would love to have another quote to compare it to.

Anyways, we secured a pretty good rate using Vacations 4 Less, a travel agency in California. Ask for Teresa - she specialized in Mexico. I have a friend who works for Starwood and tried to book Friends and Family rates, and Vacations 4 Less was considerably cheaper. You have to pay a deposit with them, but we just reserved fewer rooms knowing that we could book them and then reserve additional rooms later. Going right through Westin or Expedia, are there any special restrictions or cancellation fees?
All in all, it seems like the Westin is really flexible and I've heard that they have really responsive wedding planners. Hope this helps!

After more research, I found that the Nikki Beach has closed at the Westin... has anyone else heard the same? A bummer because it had such good reviews. But, I did read that the replacement has an equally great (although expensive) champagne Sunday brunch. I've been to a wedding where the bride and groom have gone to the brunch and suggested that others meet them there for good-byes, but didn't in fact pay for everyone's brunch... an idea. We may offer to host a stop-by-whenever continental brunch since many guests will likely be leaving that day and may have check-outs etc to attend to...
Davina - great choice on the Westin! It's beautiful and priced right!
