what did your resort do that blew you away????

Recommended Posts

I am curious to know what your resort/hotel/venue did that totally blew you away (in a good way)huh.gif

 

What was the best thing that they did for your wedding that you didn't expecthuh.gif and for your guests?

 

Wedding

Our resort took the decoration of the reception hall to a level I didn't think was possible, all of the linens were perfect! I did not expect that each table would have champagne buckets at every table that were draped in proper linens.

 

Guests

Everyone had a bathtub filled with water and petals, and a box of coconut (like bounty/mounds) chocolates. My guests were wowed!

That's great! My hotel did nada for us ~ NA-DA! lol Seriously, the Marriott PV just does not care. We did not have the ceremony there but we brought in 25 guests and they knew we were getting married. Nothing back in our room on the wedding night... never anything...

 

We got married at Las Caletas though and they did everything perfectly, including a cold bottle of champagne waiting for me and my girls the day of! Loved that :)

 

I will say our HM hotel did a cool thing for us! We stayed at The Royal Plantation in Ocho Rios, JA and they sent us a tray which included 1) a letter of congratulations from the Manager (looked hand signed) with a $50 gift cert to the spa (which we put to use on a couples massage lesson!) 2) Ice cold champagne in a bucket of ice 3) yummy little dessert plate and separate fruit/cheese plate. Was very, very sweet of them! After our previous experience, we felt so touched at this token of their acknowledgment of our wedding/honeymoon.

This is a cool thread. I am anxious to hear what everyone else says.

 

Amy-I want the coconut chocolates-yummy!

 

Jamie-I can't believe the hotel didn't do ANYTHING. They should have at least sent champagne or chocolate covered strawberries!

when we got back to the room they had roses everywhere and our bath tub was filled with bubble bath and a heart out of rose petals!

My resort had great service. Our resort gave dh and me bride and groom all inclusive bracelets to wear. whenever an employee at the resort (and i'm talking almost every employee we saw) would see our bracelets they would ask about our wedding and offer our help in anyway possible. then they would remember us everyday we saw them. One morning i was out taking pics of the various wedding ceremony locations and reception locations so i could post them here for any girls interested in our location and an employee saw me and came up to me and walked me over to a location and told me the exact time i should take the best picture of the beach ceremony gazebo, he told me when the sky would be perfect and the waves would be crashing behind. i thought that was pretty cool of him to stop in his busy day and help me with my pictures.

Ourr 2nd resort, where we spent out honeymoon The Valentin Maya, totally blew me away. I wracked up about $500.00 in spa treatments that I charged to the room. When we checked out they said "thank You for chosing us for your honey moon, the spa charges are on us" I couldnt believe it!

The night of the wedding, they decorated our room with tons of rose petals and gave us all the floral centerpieces from the wedding to put in our room as well.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
