    Thank you! I was hoping it wasn't true but I have a while so hopefully they take care of it!

As soon as you entered, the smell was kinda strong.  Unfortunately, the problem was still there by the time we left but hopefully they fixed the issue.

    You do have the option of eating outside of the world cafe.  While we were there, everyone seemed to notice but it didn't stop them from eating inside there.  The place was full of people all day, everyday.  Im hoping they've fixed the issue by now!!

      When I took my tour at the end of June we saw the ENTIRE resort and didn't notice a smell.  Rest assured, the resort is gorgeous and if your guests notice a slight smell, so what?  They will be SO PLEASED with your choice.  I know we were blown away by it on our tour and cannot wait for our wedding.  :)

        Fiance and I just booked our trip!!!  We will be there from July 17, 2012 - July 24, 2012 and are getting married on July 20, 2012!!

         

        The TA was awesome, totally recommend Liberty Travel.  She upgraded us already to the Honeymoon Suite at the garden room price! I am super pumped.  We held our dates and stay with $50!  

         

        As soon as she gives us the quote for our guests we're going to put it on our site and send our STDs.  :)  Life is good.

          I originally had Anna but then they switched me to the girl that I have now... you have to ask for prices for everything.

          I haven't really spoken to a coordinator properly yet, my emails are back and forth through Ana but i have not been assigned to anyone, do you think this is normal?

          What did you ask for to get some prices on things as i dont have a list for anything??

           

          Thank you

            Lindsey,

             

            Did you TA guarantee you this upgrade or was it based upon availability?  That is probably about a $1500 difference.

              Future Mrs. S,

               

              Your wedding was ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!  I love the video!

               

              I have a couple of questions:

               

              Where did your bridesmaids dresses?

              Did you have centerpieces?

              Did you get the light towers?

              I am debating on the lighted dance floor, was it worth the money?

               

              Thank you!

              Ashley

              Ok, so here it goes!!!!!  My long review….I know most of these things are repetitive from others but I remember how much I loved reading reviews so I just wanna give back!

               

              My husband and I got married at DRC on Friday June 24, 2011. Our stay was from Tuesday, Jun 21st through Monday, June 27th.  We were a group of 23 and did the ultimate package.

               

               

              We flew out of  Newark, NJ.  We each had a carry-on (both filled with wedding d©cor) and each checked in one bag each (filled with clothes and toiletries.)  I asked my parents to bring a carry on as well for me to avoid any extra luggage charges. We arrived at the airport, checked in our luggage and headed straight to the security line.  They had to look through my bag because (Oops! I had small bottles of lotions for each of the OOT bags in there.  It was fine because each of the lotions were less than 3oz bottles- so they pushed us through anyway.  (TIP: To avoid any of this, pack your liquids in your check-in bags.) We were off to the gate when I noticed three other brides getting on the plane with their gowns which I have to say frightened me a little because of the past reviews on here of the mean attentants…hahaha…  But as it turns out, without me saying a single word, one of the attendants asked me if I wanted to lay my gown out in the 1st class overhead compartment because they were empty!!!! I was so relived!! So we sat down and had a smooth flight down.....

               

               HOTEL TRANSFERS:  Once we landed and picked up our luggage, we walked immediately outside to find Apple Vacations waiting for us.  They loaded us up in the van and it was about a 25 minute direct ride to the resort.  The final streets to the resort are definitely nothing to look at and are a bit odd as if being taken down a dead end street but HAVE NO FEAR, once you get to the resort---IT’S A DREAM!!!  The resort is gated and there is a check-in there.  The van pulled us up right to the front doors and that’s where our dream began!!!! 

               

              CHECK-IN:  Check-in was a breeze.  As they are asking you for your itinerary and passports, we were greeted with champagne.  The lobby is BEAUTIFUL!  Our ocean front deluxe room was waiting for us when we arrived.  We took a shot and tried to upgrade but only to be turned down…oh well!!  Our room was amazing anyway!!!!  The only thing I wish we had were dressers!! We had to either hang clothes or put it in a closet with only a couple of shelves.  I thought it clearly wasn’t enough and had to keep some stuff in my suitcase.  I did love the room set-up though!! So pretty!! 

               

              RESORT/RESTAURANTS:  The resort is beautiful.  The grounds are kept clean constantly. There truly was someone always maintaining the grounds.  All the bathrooms I found to be very clean!!  We all loved all of the restaurants.  We only didn’t get a chance to eat at the French restaurant but the others in my group said it was great too!!

              I loved the crab wontons and the fried calamari at the Oceana restaurant by the pool.  I think we tried it all… the paella, the burgers, the pizza (which was ok…im used to NY pizza..hahaha).  Everything was really delicious.  The drinks are great…if you need them stronger, just ask them for a shot.  They dont do reservations, but it wasn't needed for us anyway...most of the nights we were taken right in.  The one night where we all (23 of us) wanted to eat together at el patio did take about 10 minutes before we all sat down and even then we had to be split up between tables....no biggie- el patio was great.  I have to say they do try to accomodate you as best they can.

               

              MORE...........
