You might want to allow a day to look at more than your original three. The place we ended up at was a "yeah - let's stop by" for us (I had an appointment, but it wasn't on our top list). We happend to see a wedding set up and from the moment we walked on the property we were both loving it.
Alisa - one of the best things that you can do is go from place to place on Friday late afternoon and Saturday late afternoon. We killed ourselves to get to as many places as possible to "have a drink" so that we could see how the weddings looked set up. We had our appointments with the coordinators for during the week when we could spend more time with them.
One of the places that we were looking at that looked really great on paper and as you walked the property TOTALLY flopped when there was an actual wedding set up (people had to walk right up next to it to get from one side of the hotel to the other - everyone was looking in on the wedding, and the space didn't flow well between cocktail hour to dinner). It would have never dawned on us.

As far as a comp/discounted hotel, some places do allow for a free site visit, the problem is that it is typically offered after you book the resort- well, you don't know which resort you want which is why you are there! Check with Tammy (the host) because she is a travel agent and may be able to find some good deals for you. You don't necessarily have to stay at the place you are planning your wedding although it probably would be nice to stay at one of your options if that's affordable for you. For our 7 day site visit/vacation we stayed at two different properties which was fine, but it really was a pain in the butt to move halfway through our trip!

I think what Natasha said is completely true. It's funny because the places we expected to love we didn't like at all. The places we thought would be low on our list ended up being our favorite! So I think it's really important to keep an open mind - you will love what you find!
What three places are you thinking about? A lot of ladies have written great reviews after returning from thei sight visits and it might be helpfulto review those as well incase there's places you want to add!

It's not a great venue for a wedding, but it's good for staying. Gotta say, though, I liked staying at the Sheraton and the Hilton a lot more.

If you want to have dancing, though, they make you go to a room that's off the dining area. It has its own patio, but they won't allow music outside.
Here's a pick of the sheraton - you can see the lights in the trees - they light up the waves at night. It's really beautiful and it's so nice to hear the waves crashing down. The surround the ledge with candles at night. And, they already have a trio playing so you'll save money on music. This is just if you want dinner, though. If you want dancing, there's a patio above the restaurant where they would host that but then you get into needing a block of rooms to waive the set up fee, etc.
