Today is Elizabeth's (lpvbride) Wedding at Las Ventanas!

Recommended Posts

so elizabeth how about ryan and i meet you guys at LV for your anniversary - haha!!! for some unknown reason (the HE cant even explain) my husband seems to think he HATES the entire country of mexico. not the people or anything just the idea of mexico as a place to get away for a vacation. i think LV could change his mind! and be glad you didnt go from LV to the sheraton or youd really have somethings to complain about. their internet was down. i threw such a big fit about it the first time i was there when i went back after LV they put me in a room in between the pool and the loud, loud, loud!!! air conditioning unit. (i suspect they did that on purpose!) the food was BAD! i had to call the front desk at 2:30 and 5:15 am to ask them to go tell those loud teenaged girls in the pool to cool it. apparently the pool never closes.

 

it was funny how i never felt LV was crowded at all. i know its low season. so i wonder what its like during busy season? they only have 70 suites right? i thought the service at LV was great! believe me we put them to the test. asking for all kinds of stuff. even for them to light our fireplace. then they came back 4 hours later and cleaned it out. we needed a rental car and they arranged it all and had the car brought to us :) we are divas! the only thoughts i had about improvements were - the food was good, but i expected spectacular. the food i had at el dorado royale in riviera maya was actually better. the other thing that i thought and warning - this is really petty! - is that the place is so beautiful and i of course unpacked and moved in like i was living there, who wouldnt, but there was no cabinet in the bathroom to put my crap in. all my beauty stuff wink.gif so i just had to leave it out on the counter and i felt like that uglied things up. could i BE anymore spoiledhuh.gif haha! i feel embarrassed to even write that but thats what i thought when i was there.

 

oh and one more thing the decor was great! i loved all the little touches, like the best things from your home were there but the chair they had in our room seemed cheap and out of place and the bedspreads on the beds were the same ones that were on the beds in a cheap hotel where i stayed in the bahamas once. please dont think im a bad person. those were just some thoughts i had! i will let everyone know when i post the pics from the place and our suite.

 

feel free to give me a really tacky nickname now that fits my diva wannabe status!

Leigh, I don't think you're a diva at all...in fact, when you're staying somewhere as nice as LV, you critique everything, because you expect it all! So I loved your review, very detailed!

And I'm glad Elizabeth & Ben had such a great time. And those pictures are amazing...can't wait to see more!

We'll definitely be up for meeting you guys @ LV! Ben and I spent the majority of our dinner tonight talking about how we wished we were back there! We both love Mexico, but LV takes the beauty of Mexico and combines it with the atmosphere of a really nice U.S. hotel. So I'm SURE that LV would change your husband's mind!

 

Yeah, I definitely DON'T think you're a diva. :) I actually agree with all of your comments. Also, I forgot to mention in my review of Palmilla that the food at their casual restaurant was REALLY good (much, much better than the Sea Grill @ LV). We ate at the more expensive/formal restaurant @ Palmilla ("C") and the food wasn't that great & it was way overpriced.

 

But just for fun, I'll ask Ben to come up with a tacky diva-esque nickname for you. wink.gif

 

Also -- Based on our conversations with employees when we were there, I think that LV was full, so my guess is that, even during the busy season, it's not much busier than it was for us. Perfect IMO! Just as a comparison between the 2 -- LV has ~71 rooms, but Palmilla has ~172.
