LOVING Vallarta Palace and PV!

Recommended Posts

Hi all! Russ and I decided not to cancel our wedding plans and to continue forward with our wedding at Vallarta Palace on May 16th in Nuevo Vallarta. We are SO glad we did - things couldn't be better!

 

The hotel at first was at 5% occupancy, so things were very quiet. Service has been amazing at the hotel property - and everything about it is beautiful and relaxing. Our guests have started arriving, and there is another wedding party - so there are more people around now... but it's still probably only 30% occupancy at the point. The hotel has thrown in many perks for our guests - upgrades to the Concierge level for everyone, $250 spa credit, $250 golf credit. Everyone is having a great time, and they are thrilled about the unexpected extras.

 

We have done the Canopy Tour (fantastic) and Rhythms of the Night (a must see.) I would suggest venturing out to do either one if you have the time during your wedding stay or honeymoon. We got a ton of great photos from both outings, and I was even brave enough to wrap a snake around my head for a memorable pic!

 

Based upon our group bookings, the hotel is picking up the cost of our stay for the week, and giving us unlimited private receptions. So tonight we're doing a welcome cocktail reception, tomorrow a rehearsal dinner, a reception after the ceremony Saturday, and a farewell brunch Sunday. I have never been so happy with our decision to do a DW, and just wanted to share with everyone that things are gorgeous in Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta... so for all you PV & NV brides - you'll love it!

Thank you for writing this - I could yak until I'm blue in the face about how great it is down here right now, but it doesn't mean squat compared to an actual bride wink.gif. Poor Vallarta has been hit so hard this month with untrue bad press, that EVERYBODY are doing somersaults to see any tourists at all :).
p.s. and, of course, why am I not surprised to see comments from E and N? :):) awesome :):):).

I wanted to take this opportunity to say I was in PV from April 29-May 4. It was gorgeous and wonderful. Everyone was so nice and friendly. No swine flue scare or masks!

 

Back on subject -- I am so glad you decided to go and are having a great time - CONGRATS!

Thanks so much for sharing. I'm so sad to here about how poor PV is taking such a hit. That's why I keep telling all of my guests that I'm so proud to have a DW wedding in Mexico-- b/c I want them all to fall in love as much as I have with Mexico and the people of Mexico! I can't wait to get down there for our wedding!
