    I sent an email asking, but do you guys know if they have cribs available for people with young babies?

     

    And Kim!  Don't be sorry!  LOL

    I would have to assume they'd have pack n playa of some sort but I posted this on the GS Facebook page. I'll let you know what the regulars say :)

      I got a response from Adriana about the lights!  LOL, she said she just found my email today (from August 25) LOL!  She says NO you cannot change the colour of the lights.

        @calgarybride2015 I read one review that said after the shows are over there isn't too much atmosphere at the resort.  That there is only really the lobby bar, and they don't play music.  What do you think of that statement?  Not that I'm overly concerned - my group is large enough to entertain ourselves!

        Honestly it may be true but I had sooo many people with me we always had a large conversation or shenanigans taking place. That said there is also theme nights. One night after the show they had dance lessons in the lobby, etc. And the disco was always packed. I had no issues being entertained. If you were just a couple it may be quiet if you don't venture to speak with new people, etc. But in a group there are no worries imo

        Being with a group aside this was still the best we went to for entertainment thru day and night and people out and about. Most discos have like 2 people from my experience. So for me overall I noticed a positive difference at the GS.

        I think you'll also find with so many people and so much going on you tire easier. I didn't stay up super later too many nights. I needed sleep!!! Thankfully my kids agreed so I had an excuse some nights :)

        Thanks for the responses girls (ladies! :P)

         

        I had a feeling that was why she never respnded to the lights e-mail until now :( oh well....the regular lights looked pretty good anyway.

         

        Thanks for the photos @calgarybride2015!!! Both beaches are nice..but say I decide to go with the public beach instead...how far is it from the chapel? (walking distance? how long would it take us to get there)

         

        By the way...did any of you find prices that were somewhat reasonable for your guests? With the CAD being so low comapred to the USD, i find the vacation prices for next year to be quite up there. Wondering if any of you used specific websites or travel agencies that got you some good deals, and whether they give you protection in case prices fall.

         

        So I think I'll go ahead and book my wedding day with Adriana :D :D :D

         

        Getting the final paperwork in place right now :D

        It's a LONG walk. If you google a resort map the public beach is by the spa and the private by the disco. Basically opposite sides. You'd need to rent the shuttle (golf cart) for the day.

        We got lucky that the dollar hadn't dived. Calgary departures paid $1565 and Toronto $1465. I used a travel agent so that's a group price (never found it cheaper online) and we got some nice perks thru Air Canada. We got upgraded to first class which had huge perks especially for luggage and we got every 16th person free as a credit back to us!!!

        Worth using a travel agent for those reasons above but also to handle all the bookings and your guests questions.

        Bonus is your actual wedding bill is paid in peso!! Less of a conversion shock :)

        The public beach is public (they remove the loungers in the immediate area) so you'd have the gawkers if that is going to bother you. We only saw one couple at the private beach and they left right away when they saw the wedding.

        Ps - congrats!

          Hello ladies

          I have a spa price list from 2014, I want to get eyelash extensions for my wedding but these aren't on here. Does anyone have an up to date price list or know if the spa can do eyelash extensions

          Thanks
          Helen

          Helen I can't speak for extensions but they do fake eyelashes for free in the cost of the makeup. Those are just glued on and remove easy. You may have to email the spa or your WC to see if they do in fact do actual lash extensions. May be easier to have those done at home.

            Where are you from? I got a sweet deal directly through Air Canada Vacations because my sister works for the airline. My next best option was Tracy from Romantic Planet. Check her out if you're in Canada/Ontario.

            My ACV rep is telling me that I can only get upgraded to bulkhead seats. What a rip!
