Any Ceiba del Mar Brides?

Recommended Posts

Ahhhh.. the snow!!!!!!!!!  :)  We were planning our honeymoon to French Polynesia last night, so I am dreaming of Mexico and the South Pacific as I stare out my office window at a sheet of white! :)

 

KPSouthie - I do not know if Javier plays any traditional songs.  (I have not even asked him what he plays - I think will just let him play whatever he thinks at the time.)  I just enjoyed his listening to his music online. 

 

Good to know about the bugs - have you looked into buying any bug spray in bulk for OOT bags?  I have been trying to find some, but no luck yet.  I am hoping to find the wipes - so it is easier to travel/pack. 

 

All - any tips, suggestions, comments on menus?

Hey tweets.13, we just recently went down to do our site visit/pick vendors/do our tasting.  We decided to go with the Mexican buffet for our rehearsal dinner, and do a three course dinner for the reception (which I guess most people do).  My opinion is that even though there are many very ambitious things on the menus, the best options are the Caribbean, Mexican, and American dishes -- from what I tasted, the pastas and the Asian options aren't quite as good.

Hi Ladies,

I just saw in Self Magazine a picture that looked very familiar.  It is a picture from the pool to the ocean from Ceiba.  You can win $3000 to use at Ceiba del Mar by signing up for Jillian's Jump Start plan (from the biggest loser show).

 

For food, we are doing different types of bbq skewers.  For the reception we stuck with a basic chicken, fish, and steak meal.  All guests will get a salad and also have a ceviche or tortilla soup.  I did like the food but I thought that at times they tried too hard.  For example, the chicken comes with a sauce and there was just way too much sauce on it.

 

We still didn't make any cake decisions yet.

 

NYC girls- how did you love that expect 6 to 8 inches which turned into 19 inches!?  I loved seeing people leap across slush puddles or step in them up to their ankles in not-so-appropriate shoes.

Can anyone give me a ballpark estimate of what Ceiba is charging for guest rooms?  I know it varies depending on time of year but would appreciate any information.

hi Buggle

You will need to contact them or maybe a previous bride can give you that information.  In the contract, it states if you provide this information to anyone else, the contract can be terminated.

 

Give them a call to get some quotes or call a TA.

Hi Buggle,

 

They're usually pretty good about getting back to you in a day or two.  Maybe there was a wedding or something?  Sometimes when they're busy it takes longer.  I'm not sure who you originally contacted, but try reaching out to Diana.
