I am getting married 11.12.10 at The Royal PDC. We are having our ceremony and cocktail at the Royal with the reception next door at Kool Beach Club. Most of my planning is done. The very first thing I did was book the photographer, than we did DJ, than florist, than cake and finally hair and make up. If you have not already I highly recommend booking and working with a travel agent. It was the best decision we ever made.
This is definitely a resort that books up fast. A travel agent will ensure none of your guests get bumped if they get moved to another hotel. Mine also matched all on line rates which were great. One thing to be sure to remind your guests to book early. Price for flights have almost tripled since we booked back in February and all our guests were very happy they booked so early.
I personally picked The Royal because of its location. It is the only resort right down town which is awesome for guests. However there has been a lot of frustration with the wedding department. They are very slow to respond i think mainly because they are so overwhelmed. So it is important to remember to be patient. But every single bride has said their day was beyond their expectations at this resort.
Congrats on booking!! all the fun begins now lol let me know if you have any questions about anything
