          thanks for the review! I've been looking for one on this hotel- I think this is where we're going to get married. I have a few questions for you if you don't mind:

          1) Did they charge you to use an off site wedding photographer?
          2) Did they charge you to do the sand ceremony? did you bring your own vases?
          3) You mentioned posting the email that you sent the wedding coordinators with the outline of what you wanted- I don't think you did but I would love to see it!
          4) we are just barely in the beginning planning stages and already we have noticed the wedding coordinator being slow and/or nonresponsive with emails. based on your experience, would you still recommend going with this resort for a wedding?

          thanks a lot and congratulations on your wedding!

              Hi,
              The wedding really turned out better than I could have hoped for. Here are the answers to your questions.
              1) There is a $300 fee for bringing outside vendors
              2) We had a legal ceremony so we had to pay some expenses for the judge to come, and we had to follow the script that the Mexcian State sets out, but they let us add our own vows, a sand ceremony, and a poem reading to the ceremony. We did not have to pay extra for any of that or for the setup of the sand ceremony. If you want more info about how the ceremony worked PM me and I can tell you all about how it worked.
              3) I posted the outline of what I sent the wedding coordinator in the Paradisus forum under Mexico Weddings- Mayan Riviera. If you can't find it let me know and I can e-mail it to you. I am not yet back at home so it might take me a few days.
              4) The wedding coordinators were extremely slow and not responsive- about two months before the wedding I was ready to tell everyone not to book there, but in the end I would never say that. They created a very nice wedding for me. Everything was pretty much how I asked it to be. They had all the information that I had sent them ready for me when I arrived. They knew what I wanted and were responsive to my ideas and wants. They can pretty much plan your wedding in the few days before the wedding that you get there and put on a nice event. I had a wonderful wedding and would recommend the resort to others. About a month before the wedding I let go of all of the stress and stopped caring about the details and it was the best thing I ever could have done. Not everything will go exactly as you planned, but I had a fantastic time, and all of my guests did as well. I couldn't have asked for anything more.

              I know the wedding coordinators are hard to deal with, but I would be happy to send you all of the information that I have and answer any questions. I found that if you tell them what you want- they will do it (probably for a charge) but they know how to put on a wedding. I hope this helps.
