    Also ladies - Ana sent me some pictures of weddings she did at her last resort (orange and pink only) - so if anyone is interested in seeing a few tablecloth, centerpeice, place setting options - feel free to pm me or post your email and I'll send it...I don't know how to post the pictures on here and it seems like most people can't open attachments anyway.
    Thanks for sending me the e-mail

      Has anyone decided what they are choosing for the reception dinner? I am not sure what to do about this...I am leaning towards having a buffet since you only get one dinner choice with the a la carte dinners.

            My sentiments exactly chirorach - YIKES! We have already booked our wedding there a while ago for the beginning of June and hope that all the kinks will be worked out by then. A little surprised at the lack of service though, from most reviews I have read I was not worried but now am a little...let's cross our fingers that it gets better.

              has anyone received an updated list of photographers from Ana? She sent me one with only two options and Claudia was not one of them. Could you please let me know what she has said is permissible?

              Thanks!

                Hi Rachelle:
                I just recieved an e-mail from Ana reguarding this. Here is a list that she sent me of the photographers allowed on the resort:

                Juan Navarro: principal

                Vallarta Adventures

                Claudia Rodriguez

                Not all of theses photographers are included in the packages though. The ones they use for the packages are:

                Juan Navarro: principal
                Daniela: Sweet Caribbean ? Wedding photo
                Vallarta adventures:
                Puerto Vallarta - Adventure Weddings Get married at LasCaletas, Mexico

                So basically they don't include Claudia. If you want her website it is:
                claudiaphoto.com . I chose Claudia, she is kinda expensive, but I wanted really good photos to remember my day by. If you choose Claudia Ana told me that they can't do anything different in the packages (no price reduction). Hope this helps!

                  She keeps telling me that I can have any photographer that I want but will have to pay for the guest pass. I have it in an email from her, but would encourage you to get something in writing too...just in case. You never know! I am having 2 photographers fly out from the states. I don't think they will be staying at the resort and so we would have to pay for their entrance fee. However, I worked something out with Ana. Since we will not be using their photographer, she said she would waive their entrance fee. I've opted for that instead of the extended videography. I figure, the ceremony is enough.

                    I'm not too worried about the service. I have been reading the reviews on Facebook and Tripadvisor daily and most people have raved about the service. I've only read a couple of negative reviews about the resort. There are always going to be exceptions at any resort. I'm sorry that you, Laura, did not get the service that others have been raving about! That is such a bunmer! But it doesn't worry me. What worries me about your review is the ceremony sites. I can't understand why when they are designing a new resort that they know will have hundreds of weddings a year, they can't create a separate secluded area off to the side for the ceremony. That really bums me out

                    I will be there in 2.5 weeks and will take photos from all different angles. Hopefully they will have weddings there over Thanksgiving. I imagine they will.

                    I have also been reading about the lack of privacy in the rooms and that concerns me too. I hope that they will do something about it. I saw a post from Rod (on FB) at one time where he said they planned to fix that. But I don't when. I hope it is soon. Why would they design the bathrooms with such little privacy?!

                    Anyways, thanks Laura for your review.
