1. I know you said there were a bunch of weddings there everyday during your stay..... when you aren't one of them, do they kick all of the hotel guests out from the whole pool area? Im just wondering where you would be able to hang out in the sun if you wanted to when all the weddings are going on!
2. Did you have salon appointments for hair and makeup? How was your experience? Did you have the other wedding parties in there with you at the same time getting ready?
Thank you in advance!
1. The resort does a pretty good job of blocking off a small section around your wedding area, but they don't boot people from the entire vicinity if that makes any sense. For instance, when I watched my video of my wedding on North Beach which is said to be the most private area of the resort for a ceremony, I saw that there were still guests lounging not too far from our wedding site. However, they did pick up lounge chairs right in the area of our wedding site and even stopped people from strolling on the beach behind our huppah. THey do this for ALL weddings. They would redirect them around our wedding set- up. I'll be honest . . . the gazebo, although gorgeous when set up, is definitely less private from what I observed. From the wedding I saw take place there, I did not notice if they picked up any chairs. The staff will not let people walk through your wedding set-up though. I did however notice a lot of people lounging in bathing suits and watching the wedding during the day since the weddings were taking place so early in the day due to 5 pm sunrise times in December.
2. As far as the spa, my MOH and I set up appointments for our hair and make-up on my wedding day. I was nervous about this as I don't trust random people doing my hair/make up so I set up a hair and make- up trial before our welcome dinner two days before as well. I would recommend this option to any other picky brides. My MOH and I brought pictures of exactly what we wanted, would redirect the stylist if we wanted something a little less poofy, smooth, etc. Ultimately, we were very satisfied with the end result!
Yes, they did have other people getting ready in the spa area as there were two other weddings that day, but it did not bother us. It looks similar in size to a real salon so unless you have a big bridal party that takes up all of the chairs, there will probably be a few others in there while you are getting ready.
You're so welcome! Happy to help!
