We loved our stay at the Royal and had our wedding there. It was beautiful.

As stated previously, we swam and snorkled at the VIM just fine. If you go to the beach and walk to the right about 5 minutes, past where they hold the wedding ceremonies, you'll find even calmer waters.

I think we need to pull the trigger on VIM!
Thanks for being so helpful ladies!

The food was FABULOUS. Whether it was room services or the restaraunts, we loved it.
I think the part that we didn't like was the "vibe" of the resort. Keeping in mind that we had just come from a resort with really personalized service. This resort just didn't give us the same feeling. The staff weren't as friendly when we checked in, the refused to aknowledge our honeymoon (there is supposed to be a room upgrade and bottle of champagne etc.), the excuse for this was that our TA failed to tell them about the honeymoon when she booked it (which is totally untrue as I was cc'd on all of the emails). We didn't bother fighting it as we just wanted to enjoy our honeymoon, but it still left a bad taste in my mouth.
So really, we had no real complaints about the resort, it just didn't measure up to the first week and it was hard not to compare the two.
No matter which resort you choose you will have a fabulous wedding and memories for the rest of your lives together...so enjoy!!

I think we are almost ready to commit to VIM.
The only issue now is I can't find pricing for all of the "extras" for 2010. I'm a noob so I can't download anything on here. Am hoping to hear back from the resort...
If anyone happens to have the pricing, specifically the cost to have a private reception I would love to see it.

A couple things to keep in mind when comparing the two resorts: 1. The Royal is a block from 5th Ave and not as secluded as other resorts. We liked that because it allows our guests to freely do what they want and not be "stuck" at the resort or having to hire a car/taxi to get into town. The town is adorable and so much fun 2. The RPDC is beautiful but not has scenic as the more secluded resorts
Hope this helps you!
Had the most AMAZING wedding at The Royal PDC on May 1, 2011
