Congratulations and thanks for posting a review!

 

I'm so glad you were happy with your choice to use the free package and use the regular restaurant menu. I keep encouraging people to do this (for those who are looking at ways to save money) because people are often complaining about the 65$ cost for more than 20 people. I'm happy that you chose this option and saved some money and were happy with your experience. Thanks for posting the prices you paid, I know other brides who are comparing the different options will appreciate getting a clear picture of what it cost.

 

There was a hot tub when I was there (although that was almost 2 years ago!) although it closed in the evening with the other pools. That being said, myself, my sister and SIL went in at like 1am the night of my "bachelorette" party and nobody said anything even though the security guard and other resort employees walked by and saw us in it. I was happy they had one because a lot of resorts have a "whirlpool" which is actually cold water rather than a hot tub.

Thanks everyone! to answer a few of the questions -

Our one tour that we did (Coba Mayan adventure) we booked through the apple vacations or amstar guides that are the resort. The others we did on our own - For chichen itza we rented a van and about 15 of us went there together on our own without paying for a formaltour. The guided tour would have been $100 each, and we rented a van to take us there (2 hours away) for the day for $300, paid about $5 each to get in, and then as a group rented a tour guide there for $60. For tulum ruins we just took a taxi there. We had a great time.

 

We didn't tip the minister, but tipped the wedding coordinator, photographer and servers.

We didn't pay for a video, but had a family member who was videotaping it for us.

 

Let me know if you have any other questions, I'm happy to help since I learned so much from this site!

Great review I am rethinking going with a package. We originally wanted the ultimate package then decided to go with the the one before that dont know what its called. But I am seriously rethinking this now. Especially wanting to bring in our own photographer.

 

Congratulations on your marriage

What a great honest review. I also chose a free package and decided to add on my extras. In the end you really do save a lot of money by customizing it to your needs. Congrats on a wonderful wedding! and on being a Mrs. :)
