ohiobride15's aventura spa palace review

Recommended Posts

On the main road there are "speed bumps" that are so big cars have to go less than 5 miles an hour over them or our car will get all messed up. At these speed bumps there are a handfull of military with machine guns and the whole nine yards. You drive past these anywhere you go. I guess they are looking for young kids driving beat up cars. They are looking for cocaine dealers.

 

The night we went to our rehearsal dinner in Playa del Carmen there was a massive shooting at the stop we went by everyday and went by twice that day. It was in the news here. The police chief was shot while he was patroling this stop. Two people pulled up in the middle of the day and shot him in the middle of the street. The people who shot him where part of the police.

 

During our wedding three military men with machine guns and everything walked right in front of us. They patrol the coast now everyday. It was kind of scary. You can definatley see that it is a different country and you are not at home. I wouldnt say that I felt unsafe but I definatly missed the comfort of home alittle. These people live in a place where the military and police arent on the same page, add in the drug dealers and also the fact that most of the law enforcement are "dirty". You will feel alittle uneasy when you see these things though. The good thing is that the resorts for the most part are so well gaurded that you can stay there the whole time if you want.

 

There is my military story for our wedding.

Hello ohiobride15!

 

I tried to private message you but your mailbox is full so I will jsut post it on here.

 

Hello Ohiobride15,

 

I am getting married at Moon Palace on July 16th and am a little apprehensive to use a resort photographer. I have been looking into Octavio Montes, but the resort says they do not like outside vendors. How did you get around that? He also was there for a very long time, if you don't mind how much did your photography package cost? Were you happy with the photos?

 

Thanks in advance,

 

Brianne

I will clean out my inbox if you need to ask me anything else. He cost 850 for 6 hours of time. He took about 400+ photos. He mailed us 150 6x8 photos. And he gave us a dvd with the remaining photos so we can make other copies. I just told our wedding planner from the beggining that we had an outside photographer. I printed out everytime she said it was ok. I asked her a couple times to make sure. He was great. I highly recommened him.

Wow great review.Beautiful pictures and everything seemed wonderful. I am very excited for my wedding in January next year. I'm a little disappointed that they made the resort have adults and half family, but I hope that during our stay there aren't too many kids there.
