Vallarta Palace Review for 5-16-09

Recommended Posts

I am finally getting around to reviewing our wedding ceremony. I thought it might be easiest to simply post the letter we sent to the staff at Vallarta Palace following our wedding ceremony:


To: The Vallarta Palace Staff


We would like to extend our deepest gratitude for the fantastic wedding ceremony and vacation we experienced at the Vallarta Palace Resort from May 11-18, 2009. The entire experience exceeded our wildest expectations, and it was your staffâ€s hospitality that made our stay one of the best travel experiences weâ€ve ever had. I also speak for all of our wedding guests when I say that your resort went above and beyond to make our “wedding vacation†a dream come true for all of us.


First and foremost, we were thrilled by the greeting we each received upon arrival at the resort. Each staff member we encountered was polite, friendly, and made us feel as though we could immediately feel at home away from home. The $250 spa and $250 golf credits were a wonderful surprise, and something that most of our guests are still talking about. Jorge was excellent in explaining what the promotions entailed, and assisted many of our guests in selecting relaxing spa services, fun golf outings and off-property tours.


We enjoyed the variety of meals throughout the property, and wanted to let you know our favorite was MoMoNoHaNa! The food was excellent in all of the restaurants, and the service by the restaurant staff was impeccable. In addition, the overall pride in the maintenance of the property was evident in how pristine everything appeared to be in every area of the resort – itâ€s simply a beautiful place to spend a vacation.


Most importantly, our group was there for our May 16th wedding ceremony, and Vallarta Palace turned out to be the perfect place to host our wedding events. Our guests have told us repeatedly not only how much they enjoyed their stay, but also how amazing they thought the wedding events and the wedding ceremony were. The setting in the gazebo was perfect, and translated beautifully to film and video. The garden was a perfect spot for photos, dining and dancing at the reception, with a breathtaking view of the ocean, the mountains and the sunset for all of us to enjoy.


We would like to personally thank Anita and Salvador for their special services in sound, lighting and decoration. Their hard work added a special touch to an already beautiful setting. We also want to thank Lorena for all of her effort and coordination leading up to our event – and for taking such good notes regarding the details of our ceremony and additional events! A very special thanks also goes to Hector in group sales for making sure our group was taken care of and for the additional assistance and hospitality he offered throughout our stay. And last, but certainly not least, we owe much gratitude to Angeles, who stepped in at the last minute to coordinate our wedding events when an unforeseen emergency called Lorena away. Angeles moved quickly into action, verified Lorenaâ€s notes and made everything transition seamlessly. Her attention to detail, her consistent follow-up and the personal interest she took in making sure everything was right made each of our wedding events everything we could have asked for.


Overall, what else can we say? We thank each and every person who made our wedding and vacation a memory to last a lifetime. We will definitely be back to Vallarta Palace, and look forward to also exploring other properties in the Palace Resorts chain.


Thank you,

Kelly & Russ



As I posted in another thread, Vallarta Palace went above and beyond to make our wedding perfect in every way. Our guests are still giving rave reviews about their stay, and I wish we could do it all over again year after year!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
