        Thank You!

         

        I'm actually just going to make my own hair vine.  I know the basics of beading and jewelry making, so I figured I could handle making a simple beaded necklace.  I read an article on Jennifer Lawrence's hair vine from the Hunger Games premiere that said she just took a vintage gold necklace, braided it into her hair and then flipped/pulled apart the braid pinning it with the necklace intertwined.   seems simple enough. 
        I'm going to make a necklace that I can then later wear as a memory of the day.  So, just could just do some necklace shopping for it, vs. using something specifically made for hair.

          That's such a lovely idea having it to keep as a memento. I will have to find some nice long necklaces! Thanks for the idea! X

            Allie would you mind taking a quick look at this little guide I'm going to include in the OOT bags? I think I included everything. I know I would appreciate something like this, but if the resort already has something similar please let me know so I don't order them.

             

            Thanks!!

            Nicole

              this is awesome!! I vaguely remember getting a small list of the restaurant times, but it didn't include the bars or snack corners. So I think this would be really helpful.

               

              I would suggest a note added to check restaurant's days and times, just in case there are changes.  and all of the restaurants aren't open every day. I think there was one night Kampai was closed, and another when Rincon was closed. Rincon has dinner hours also, from 6-10pm.

               

              You may also want to add that room service is 24/7, and typically takes about 30 minutes to deliver. (try the lobster quesadillas - we loved these!)

               

              There are two D'Italia restaurants - one in the Royale side, and one in the Casitas side. I've heard the menus are identical, but the service was a little better/nicer in the casitas (we ate at the D'Italia casitas several times!!)

               

              The other thing with the restaurants that you may want to mention is that there is a dress code at lunch - no swim suits, except at the pizzeria. Ladies will need a cover up & shorts, gents need a t-shirt and must be dry.

               

              Bars:

              There's also a champagne bar above D'Italia Casitas. They have most other alcoholic beverages too, but this place was always quiet when we were there. It's on the 2nd floor, and has a lovely balcony that looks out over the beach.

               

              The other bar to mention is Gaviotas - this is the one on the beach across from Kampai. It was one of our favorite locations. They don't have hours listed, but I think it opened around 10 or 11am, and closed around 9 or 10pm.

               

              Hope that helps!!

                Thanks for the advice... Did anyone have a pre-made general schedule for when/where they planned to have dinner or drinks each night, if others wanted to join them?

                  I don't want everyone to know where we'll be haha. We're having the welcome dinner Friday, the wedding Saturday, and then after that it's each man for himself! ;)
