Is or has anyone stayed at Paradisus Palma Real...

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am getting married at the PPR on October 10, 2008. I am also having my rehersal dinner at Bana Bistro. Are you ladies having a cocktail hour before the reception? My Fiance & I are debating whether or not to have one since it is so costly. We chose the a la carte reception at the Gabi Beach Club which seems to have so many added expenses.

We are doing the aqua package which comes with a cocktail hr or half hr. Otherwise i dont think i would have one. I've heard from a few girls it's just as easy to have your guests meet at one of the nearby bars and do cocktails there. It would probably save you a lot of dough.

we are doing the chill out chic package, but I need to see if it worth while to do a package versus going al carte.

One of the ladies on the forum stated there is a bar really close to the beach and it may not be necessary to have a private cocktail reception.

Hmmmm...but there are plus sides to the package...I need to make a definite decision soon.

Having honeymooned at PPR, I would recommend that you do NOT pay for an extra cocktail hour. What we did (at PPC, and it would work the same, probably even better, at PPR) was just let guests know to meet us at either the Lobby Bar or the Gabi Bar at certain times for cocktails. At PPR, those bars were not very crowded, and they are the nicest ... so you can easily mingle in those areas (the Lobby Bar is cooler and has tons of huge chairs, sofas, etc ... so that would be my recommendation) and not have to worry about extra costs.

Decided to stick with the package. With the number of guest attending our wedding it was cheaper to go with the package versus al carte...but it may not be for everyone.

The cocktail reception comes with the package.

Hi ladies,

 

I am new to the site and will also be getting married at the Paradisus Palma Real. The wedding date is December 5, 2008 and I we will have about 40 guest. We have planned our welcome dinner for Bana as well so I am looking forward to hearing the reviews. I've heard really bad reviews about the dj's that the resort uses. Does anyone have any suggestions?

We ate at Bana our first night at PPR and it was just OK. Great atmosphere for a large group, but it was our least favorite meal while at PPR.

Hi Tira. I'm going to burn CDs with the music i want, i figure the DJ can't mess that up. I really hadn't heard anything bad about the dj before, now you have me worried. a few girls have used ipods and had no problems, maybe you could go that route.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
