        So much misinformation between the WCs.  Elsa told my travel agent yesterday that I could not request who my onsite was.  They also said I can not book a room for our photographer and avoid the vendor fee since my photographer is from Mexico?  Has anyone else had issues with the prices onlince changing.  I show the DJ cost went up $100, the officent another $100 and the flowers went up also.  Total it will be another $400 for me.  They still have yet to get back to me on if they are going to honor the pricing they sent with my contract.

              Hi lovely ladies! Fiance and I made it to Cancun today! We've only been here for 3 hours, waiting for our room to be ready and decided to check out the 2 resorts. Met Diana at the Wedding center in the Royal. She seems awesome. Our taste testing/site visit is with her tomorrow. Any questions/concerns, let me know by then and I'll try to get an answer for you! So excited. Loving it so far. Ps, anyone know what to tip WC during site visits/the actual wedding? Thanks!

                  Thanks ladies.  Elsa finally got back to me about the pricing and she did say they would honor the original pricing.  THe bad news I just found out was that they will not accept any deliveries prior to the wedding.  I hordered custom painted maracas that were beign sent from Puerto Vallarta.  Luckily my FI has family in Cancun so hopefully we can ship it to them.  On the bright side Elas confirmed Diana was my assigned onsite WC. Kerns I am jealous you are in Cancun, Im in MInnesota and it has been 6 degrees here all week.  I am anxious to hear what you think of the food.  I still have not decided what our menu will be.

                    Hey Jennifer,

                    Not sure if your WC told you but Sunset Grill is outside facing the lagoon/hotel zone streets with the Kids' Splashpark/pool right next to it. What time is your wedding? 

                    Maria's is inside, ambience seems more formal than the rest of the resort and more intimate. 


                    Hope this helps!

                      LeahZ, we tried the seafood salad and spinach souffle as the first course. Spinach souffle seemed slightly bland and since it's a souffle, the consistency is different. Seafood salad was good, sauce was dark but tasty and nicely presented. For entrees we tried the beef and red snapper. Beef is good, medium cooked which should be better for guests overall but not for our tastes. Red snapper was amazing! Tasted like butter. Both were very well presented. Dessert was canneloni and fruit filled chocolate shell. Both were good but the shell seemed like it had more to offer.

                      Hope this helps.
