      If you are not big meat eaters I would probably not chose the Grill.  I would try to change your dinner to the Dolce instead.

I will email Chandlyn and let her know that we may need to make other arrangements....Perhaps even go with the Dolce instead. 

       

       

      Oh the joy of planning continues.........!!!

        I booked through Marlin Travel and Transat and they initially offered every 16th free, but I said I wanted every 12th free and they gave it to me.  Plus they offer one-time price drop protection so I am watching the prices to see if they drop.  Right now we are $1,505 pp with the Royal Golden upgrade out of Toronto.  That's for Dec 7 - 14.

Can anyone tell me if this is the same gazebo that you get married in? As well, does the resort set up any decorations, lighting in the gazebo? Thank you!

          Me too...on January 9, 2014; when is your date?  Have you been to the resort before?  It's a gorgeous area for a wedding!  To answer your questions:  the gazebo you rented for the party/dance is the same one as for the ceremony.  The resort doesn't really set up any decorations (I'm sure they will if you pay an arm and a leg), and when I was there in December it looked as though there was some lighting already there (sort of like lanterns) around the gazebo area.  The resort was very busy when we were visiting in December, but that side of the resort was never crowded...I think it's because it's the rocky beach side!  Congratulations and happy planning!

            I was there for a site visit in December....and did not see anybody get married on the beach side of the gazebo.  It's fairly rocky where they have the ceremony, so you probably wouldn't be able to have your toes in the sand anyway.  However, the gazebo is beautiful as it overlooks the water----and it's fairly private as most resort-goers stay on the sandy side of the beach way on the other side of the resort:)

                  Hi ladies I just started a new thread specifically for reviews of photographers at the resort. I've been in touch with the coordinator of Arrecife studio (the resort photographers) and he said, although he can't show me individuals photographers profile's I can request a certain one to shoot my wedding.

                   

                  Hoping to get some reviews on who does a good job and who doesn't since there seems to be a variety. For those who have already gotten married there and used their photographer, can you click on the link and provide a quick review?

                   

                  Thanks!

                    OMG I booked months ago my wedding date, I wasnt given many dates to choose from so I picked Dec 5th 2013, I asked for confirmation of my date so I could include it in my information packages/invitations. They sent me a confirmation email stating that date was mine. I couldn't get my fax machine to work so I send my filled out forms as an attachment through email which they recieved. I relaxed for a while waiting to find out the actual guest # before continuing to book things and they responded that dec 5th, 2013 was not available and they never heard from me so they gave it away and the only date/time is at 11am :( Really not happy and not sure what to do, anyone have any suggestions??
