    we are getting married at 1pm as far as I know. Hopefully, there isn't any changes to that. Are you getting married at 4pm on friday? I really want to be back in time for your wedding. I'm hoping our room looks onto the gazebo area. if not i'll be lurking around that area during your wedding.

    I was really happy with this resort, its beautiful and a great place to get married.  However, I was married in January before all these major changes.  One of the main reasons we chose this resort was due to it being much cheaper for the wedding packages and vendor fees.  But that sounds like it has changed.  They absolutely made my wedding day special.  Although they do more then one wedding per day I never felt like I was just another bride, but the most important one.  I never saw the other weddings or wedding partys that were married on the same day as mine.  They do a pretty good job of accomodating any requests to make your day special.

I've booked everything through a UK tour operator and agreed on the "Sunshine" package at £475.  The cost for us is a big part of the reason for getting married abroad because in the UK we would never be able to afford it!  But I dont want to be getting any surprises come next year on arrival at the resort and they say the package is now "x" amount especially not with the mounting costs i've been adding up from reading the thread re photography etc.  I plan on only getting married once in my life and I want it to be perfect.  JayKay were you happy with the hotel itself and the grounds etc and did the hotel do all they could to make your special day "special"?  I haven't received my wedding pack yet from the tour operator but as soon as I do if I find that there are answers in there for some of the questions in this thread I will definitely let you all know so that I can help others out how you have all helped me so far with your comments. Thanks guys. S x

Our package was $550 for pre-wedding, ceremony, and a beach session. He took 400 pictures, and it was VERY hard deciding after eliminating them to 180.

        Hey, thanks so much! Love your pictures. I will definitely look into using him.

          Hi all,

           

          Was wondering if anyone has an email contact for the wedding coordinator.  I have been trying to phone but have had no success.  We are trying to plan a wedding at the resort but before we make any final confirmations with our travel agent I wanted to confirm whether they even have a wedding available.  

           

          Thanks for your help,

          Jenn
