It finally feels like things are starting to come together! cheer2.gif

 

So far we have picked two places that we feel very confident about...

For lodging, the Westin Regina in Marina Vallarta

For Ceremony/Reception the Mayan Palace just next door

 

The Westin is a European Plan hotel which we were originally not open to at all. However, upon further consideration we realized that this may actually save our guests some money. The majority of them don't drink a lot, and the hotel is within walking distance to a lot of restaurants. Upgrading to some sort of AI plan would be an extra $113/day and I think our guests will be just as happy getting out of the hotel and exploring some other choices. Also, there is a convenience store located across the street from the Westin where you can buy booze and then take it back to the hotel. I've read that you can fill up coolers and take them with you to the pool. We also thought it would be good to add a bottle of liquor to our guests' OOT bags so they'll always have something tasty to drink wink.gif Ooooh, another plus to this hotel are their famous "Heavenly beds". There aren't many places in Mexico where you get a bed that isn't rock hard. The rooms look very nice too, and there isn't a huge price jump between room categories (about $30 between every category). The suites look awesome with jacuzzis outside on the patios.

To top it off we went to brunch with my Dad today and found out THIS is where he got married when he married my ex-stepmom (she raised me from 12 to about 17)!!! I actually remember this hotel from when they got married there. So that makes it extra special. He is a total hotel snob and said he LOVED it there! This makes me so happy because he didn't seem too excited at the other ideas we had been coming up with so far. YAY!

Amy, I personally LOVE the Westin. I looked at the Melia but like you said I really wasn't thrilled with it. I'm not so sure about the "Bedrock" theme, lol.

For December 16-20 (Sun - Thurs) you can get:
*(Basic) Deluxe Room for $119/night!!!
*Deluxe w/Ocean View = $149/night
*Royal Beach Club Room (w/Breakfast and access to private lounge w/appetizers and self service bar) = $175/night
*Grand Deluxe Club Room (Royal Beach Club room + Jacuzzi on Balcony) = $225/night

NOT BAD!!!!!! Beware tho, the rates do go UP (like double the price) on the weekends.

Also, that's '07 rates that we're looking for for our site visit. I don't know what they'd be like at other times of the year but I'd bet next July they wouldn't be too bad...

Haha, thanks! I am so happy right now because these two places feel really good and "real".

And yes they are both in PV in the Marina area.
