    Hello ladies!

     

    I am looking to have my wedding @ the Cloisters in the Versailles Gardens, followed by a reception @ Luciano's in November 2011. I would like my friends and family to stay @ the Atlantis, since it seems to offer the most variety for everyone who comes. The Harborside Villas look like the best value for families who would like to come- has any one ever stayed here, and if so what did you think of it? Did you book directly thru Atlantis, or thru Ebay or any other TimeShare service?

     

    Also- any feedback on Luciano's would be great! Like-- what food did you eat? Did you sit outside/inside? Any tips?

     

    Thanks so much!

    Robin

      Hi,

       

        I have stayed at the Atlantis Harborside timeshare at least three times...it's great if you can get in.  You can rent from the Atlantis which will cost you much more than if you rent from a timeshare owner.  Try www.tug2.net and go to the rental section or go to another timeshare rental site.  Now..as for it being a value...not really....you should check out the prices.  Depending upon the season, you can get the Atlantis at pretty good prices and/or the Comfort Suites which has full privileges at the Atlantis.  The only benefit to the timeshare is that they do not hit you up with the RIDICULOUS surcharges and taxes that you get hit with for staying at a hotel on Paradise Island.

       

      Good luck too you!!

        Hi Robin,

         

        I just came across your post. I am thinking of doing the exact same as you... ceremony at the Cloisters at O&O, and the reception at Luciano's. I have not figured out accommodations, as of yet. But I am considering blocking off some rooms at Breezes on Cable Beach - it's reasonable, and all-inclusive... but was also considering Atlantis. If you have any info worth passing along, it would be much appreciated.

         

        I have contacted both O&O and Luciano's, but have not secured anything. Have you booked a date?

         

        Congrats, and all the best with planning!

          I am looking to do the same as well in Dec 2011!  So much fun to plan.  Has anyone considered how their guests will be transported from Atlantis to the cloisters and from the cloisters to Luciano's.  Classadiva  - I think i read on another blog that you rented a van - how much does that cost?

            I looked into it but had my welcome reception at the timeshare Club Land Or' which was a short walk around the Atlantis marina...I was however quoted prices from $24-27 per person to go from the Atlantis to the Poop Deck at Sandyport RT..the transportation costs can be steep!!

              We are having our reception at Luciano's in Sept 11. We are using a wedding planner (who I LOVE!) www.weddingsinthebahamas.com

              We are having 2 limmos take everyone from the ceremony to the reception. If you go to her site & click on Luciano's, it also show pics of her receptions there.

                Hello - I had to transport people from my hotel to Luciano's and used Majestic tours. Depending on the amount of people it can get very expensive! Especially since you have 2 stops, where I only had one. We used Majestic Tours and couldn't be happier. I think you will find that they all charge about the same.

                 

                Good luck.

                  Accomodations at Atlantis, Ceremony at Cloisters and reception at Luciano's.. (anyone new reading this... :o) PM me so we can start a new thread) I find it very hard to find future brides of the Atlantis / Cloisters for 2012-2013. :o(

                   

                  I am also going to check of that wedding coordinator.. I have seen that many ladies have been happy with them.. If past brides are reading this.. Can you please share your review of these locations with me? :o)  Thanks!

                    Hi, new to this site, glad I came across it! Congratulations to all the brides to be, we just got engaged and are thinking of having our wedding in the Bahamas in October 2013. This is very new to me and I just have no idea where to start. I know I want to use a wedding planner since I'm in California and will need all the help I can get. I have contacted a few planners already but I just don't want to rush into choosing one because I want to start planning. I think the toughest thing so far is actually choosing a destination and resort that will fit in accordance to our budget. Look forward to sharing this process with you all and hearing from those who are in the advanced stages of planning :)

                       Congrats on your recent engagement!!.. We to were thinking of the Bahamas and was about to pay the Cloisters fee and then decided on Punta Cana. There are a few ladies getting married in the Bahamas next year, I hope yall can share your planning ideas together!!.. And I agree choosing the resort and location is the most difficult and stressful task. I feel a huge weight lifted off me now that we've got our confirmed. :o)
