    I am getting married at this hotel in October and after reading some of the reviews (about food and hotel) on trip advisor, I am worried that I might have chosen the wrong hotel??

    I have read on the other threads about people planning their weddings at this hotel, but can anyone who has already been married at this hotel tell me about their experiences?

    I have 13 guests coming with me and I am a bit worried?

    I think I just need my mid putting to rest :-(

      Have you searched here for your hotel? I would start there.

        I haven't been there, but I find that you can find bad reviews on EVERY resort if you look long enough on TripAdvisor.

          Agreed - no matter what resort you look at - there will be some people who review it poorly. I would not stress because it's your day and nothing will ruin it, unless you let it.

            I hate trip advisor. I was so worried at first about my resort as well.
            I then looked at all the resorts and there is bad reviews everywhere.

            I don't think you have anything to worry about at all! Everyone will love it. They are going for your wedding so they will be super excited.

            Unless your guests don't like the sun, white sandy beachs, food and booze then you won't have a problem ; )

              TripAdvisor has misled me more than once. I believe that those who have only negative comments love to post them on that site, but those who had a positive experience don't often share it. I think it's pretty skewed, but that's just my humble opinion! Your best source of information are the brides who were actually married there. You might also find some info in the Wedding Reviews section. Give it a shot!

                I've been to 9 amazing resorts - and never posted a review for any of them! Think of all the others like me!

                  TripAdvisor is the worst! I cannot read the reviews anymore. I agree with everyone else, connect with the past and future brides for your resort. They will give you honest feedback with pictures! Regardless, it's your wedding day and you will have a wonderful day.

                    Stay away from Trip Advisor! I agree only people that have negative things to say there. I was worried about my resort...but got much better updates and infromation from BDW brides. So I decided to search Trip Advisor from places I've visited and it confirmed they are miscued!

                      I still read the reviews on trip advisor but only for information like which beach is better between resorts, how the rooms are set up, activites available, etc. more technical things that i could probably get from a TA but is just easier to search myself.

                      However, I generally disregard reviews on service and/or "horrible experiences" because I find a lot of times it is also dependent on how that guest acts or in the case of really bad experiences, a lot of the time it's just bad luck, a pure coincidence and not a consistent issue.
