      One of things that helped us decide was to look at the menus of the different places we were considering.

        It really depends on what you are looking for. Not sure what you like, but the fi and I loveeee resorts that have that Mexican feel to it ie: everything open, colorful. The beach was also a huge factor in our decision. Our top 3 choices were Barcelo, Dreams, and Grand Palladium. We ended up choosing Barcelo because we just knew on our site visit that it was the place for us(and it was raining when we went to visit!)

        Dreams was absolutely beautiful, we really did love it, but it was maybe a little too "fancy" for us? Don't know if that is the best way to describe but I can't put it any other words! Grand Palladium was amazing, but way too big! Barcelo had the best beach by FAR-- you can choose to have your wedding in a more secluded area under palm trees on the beach, or you can have it right out in the open on the main part of the beach. Barcelo has a very mexican feel to it--bright colors, "open" restaurants(we don't like how some resorts have all of their buildings closed in). My parents also stayed there a few years ago and said that it was amazing and the food was fabulous. Hope this helps! If you have any more questions just let me know!

          That is so awesome to hear!! I had just finally decided to go with Barcelo so that makes me soooo happy :)! just by word of mouth I had heard someone else from ND got married there and absolutely loved it!! Yes, the mexican feel is exactly what I would want too, I think we are on the same page! I just called and asked for the 6 or 7th of Jan 2010 and am waiting to hear back from them and I can't wait!!!! I am super excited!! Thanks for the input, its so nice to hear that from someone who went and visited both!! thanks! :)
