      I was just there in August visiting with the GM and checking out the wedding areas, reception areas and rooms! Beautiful gardens to have pics done in as well as on the beach!There are a lot of different places to have a wedding and also the reception!

      It's a great beach property very active ! There are some rooms that are set away from the active areas so if your, guests prefer a bit quieter have your TA find out which rooms those are!

      They just completely refinished the pool there- from the pics I've seen it looks great!

        Thanks! I was started to get scared Trip Advisor freaked me out! I know the airport is right there and that is not a concern of mine. The party thing is not bad to me its kinda why we chose that resort. Do you know even though it says no tipping are you supose to tip for better service?

          Nope- no tipping excpt if you have a butler!

          It is a resort where you want your TA to be familiar with the room categories- there are some that need refurbishment ( Sandals is working on it) or have lousy placement- those are the guests that write the bad reviews as they are unhappy with their accommodations!

            Well sometimes things kinda stink we have had our TA for almost a year and had things booked for 6 months I am not a huge traveler so I did not know what to do! We are staying in the Honeymoon Penthouse waterfront concierge level is that good? Most of our guest are in the cheap rooms in the sea grapes building and some are in the Almonds building is what I think it is? My mom and sister are also handi cap is there anything we can do for them or rooms we should recomend. I know you are not my TA just looking for some advice! Sorry if this over steps anything...
            Also do you know do you have a rehearsal or anything or how do you know what to do?

              Hi MSKimmy!

              You'll be fine in your room- these were refurbished and look nice, Plus you'll have a really big balcony! These are located in teh quieter area of the resort-have a great ocean view and there is a really nice patio /gazebo area where peopel get married right nearby and sme of the rooms over look it!

              I don't have my sheet right here but I believe there were only a few handicap rooms available and they should have been booked in that room type ( that's of course depending on their individiual needs and handicaps). Definately have your TA look ino this to be sure that they have what they need!

              No rehearsal but the Wc will go over the details when you meet with them - you'll choose your location, times that they will pick you up for the wedding and will guide you through the process!

              Have a great wedding!

                We stayed in the level you've booked and the balcony is HUGE and awesome! The planes overhead aren't bad and all and the best part is that the ride from the airport is around 5 minutes! You'll be on the beach in no time :)
