      Hi,

      I am looking at booking this resort too. I dont have any photos or anything to help you out! But I am wondering if you could help me out by sending me the contact information of the wedding coordinator.. Is that how you booked?

      Thanks,

      Jules

          Congratulations on booking! We are getting married at the Melia Varadero on April 2, 2010... just before you! We haven't made any final decisions on the photographer yet, but I'm looking at a destination photographer who is planning to be in Cuba at that time. I can send you his email if your interested in sharing. We'll have to keep in contact and help each other out!

            I wrote her an e-mail and received an automatic reply that she is out of the office until September the 1st. I hope she can get back to me before then I would really like to make sure they have April 15, 2010 available so I can go ahead and book my tickets!!!!

            And about the destination photographer, will they stay in Cuba for that long.. Thanks

              He's planning on spending 3-4 weeks in the Caribbean during April 2010, so he may still be in Varadero.

                  Yea i fyou can post the photographer info that would be great ..nd any other details you may have..Have you been to Cuba before

                  And also about the 15 of April I can't gurantee they will have that date but i'M ALMOST SURE..bECAUSE A FEW WEEKS BEFORE WE BOOKED i REQUESTED aPRIL 13 AND April 15 because we didn't have an exact date of departure..They have to be in contact with the notary, which she did for April 13 and confirmed with me but also said April 15 was available for the hotel just had to check with the judge...

                    His name is Josh Brown ( email mail@josh-brown.com) He shot my cousin's wedding last year in the Dominican and the pictures were absolutely beautiful. The TTD session he did for them seriously looked like something out of a magazine. I couldn't find any info on the resort photographer from Melia, but from what i've been reading here the resort photographers in Cuba aren't that great (due to old equipment and stuff).

                    I haven't booked Josh for sure yet, because I am waiting to find out if he has others booked to share the cost. Would be a tad expensive to pay his way down myself, lol. So hopefully you guys like his stuff!

                    This is his website: Josh Brown Wedding Photography

                      We are hoping to get married at this resort on May 18th...it looks so pretty and so far Joyma has been great to work with. I am so glad to see that more brides are choosing this resort! We'll have to help eachother out as we go :-)
