Costa Rica - October 2010
Posted 11 January 2010 - 02:00 PM
My fiancee and I are planning on getting married in Cost Rica this coming October ( I know I need to get moving). I was wondering if anyone has gotten married or even stayed at either the Occidental Grand Papagayo or Paradisus Playa Conchal. Both places look nice but I've seen some bad reviews on trip advisor on both. Please help!
FYI - We are having a very small (only immediate family) wedding and I'd really live to get married on the beach.

Good luck with your planning!

Both places have their pluses but the one thing you want to watch is the tide at Occidental GP, if it is high, there is no beach for a ceremony. Paradisus has one of the prettiest beach areas in the country (Flamingo to Playa Conchal). Keep in mind that you will be going in the middle of the rainy season in that area (it is the strongest in the area around this time). We have had many happy clients with both places.
Hope this helps.

I'm going to Occidental Grand Papagayo on my honeymoon at the end of January for a week. I will happily give you a full report and photos when i return!!
Good luck with the planning,
I also agree not to pay attention to Trip Adviser...it's only moany people who write those reports!! lol

FYI - Requested more info from Occidental Grand and Paradisus about two weeks ago and have yet to hear anything back...I'm guessing this is typical.

I've stayed at the Occidental Grand Papagayo in Costa Rica for Vacation & I have to say, It's a beautiful resort. The food is great & the staff is very attentive. They also have a sunset walk that they do with guest everyday. Everyone gets together & walks up to a nearby mountain where you have a perfect view of the ocean. As the sun sets... The view is breathtaking. Just some FYI, that (sunset walk) would be a great location for exchanging vows as well!!
