Ladies…Im back from my wedding at PPC!!
I first have to say that it was an amazing week and I know you will all have the time of your life there! It is by far the most beautiful resort compared to the other resorts we saw down there. All my guests said it was the nicest resort they have been too and want to go back! It is just breathtaking with the beauty and ambience of the resort. So rest assured ladies, you made the right choice in choosing PPC!
The food was GREAT! The service was phenomenal! There was never any issue getting a spot at the pool or beach (and July is even considered high season!). We had beautiful clean rooms and if there were any issues, the resort staff fixed it promptly. My husband and I we upgraded to the Royal Service when we arrived which was nice because our group was located in the nearest villas to our own. Our butler's name was Candida and she was so helpful and amazing and not pushy at all! We were super close to the pool and beach (1-2 minute walk max!) and the main lobby was just a 5 minutes walk from our Villa (some people complained it was a 15 minute walk but its not if you talk the "eco-path").
Wedding Details; We had our rehearsal dinner at Gabi Beach because they could accommodate a big group easily and it was lovely. We met with Miguelina and we went over all the details with her and then she introduced us to Taimir from Arrecife and we went over the photography details. Our photographer was Lala and she was amazing!! I highly recommend her!
Wedding Day: I booked the Bridal Suite which was nice because your can get your hair done right there while all the bridesmaids get ready with you. They had Champaign and Orange Juice and several hors d'ouevres there for us. Our butler arranged a shuttle to drive us to the beach gazebo for the ceremony at 4pm. Our symbolic ceremony went perfectly with no complaints. We did photos afterwards and had the cocktail hour at the same time…and they extended the cocktail hour free of charge! A shuttle picked us up and took us the the reception at the Main Pool Terrace. It was beautifully set up and the ambience was stunning. We opted for the bistro lights instead of the chinese lanterns because the chinese lanterns were $370! The bistro lights looked amazing and I'm super happy we made that choice! We didn't have a DJ service and instead brought our own wireless speaker system (The "XL Beats Pill" by Dr.Dre) and it worked amazing with our iPod and everyone was dancing. We had The Grill Menu Option 1 and it was delicious! The guests raved about the Lobster. The cake was one of the best cakes I've ever had as well! I got the 2 tier, white and chocolate cake. We all heading to the disco/lobby after the reception ended to keep the party going.
Overall, this was way better than I had anticipated and I wish I hadn't been so stressed about it. They took care of everything and the resort itself (food, staff, rooms, pools, beach, EVERYTHING) was perfect! My guests have called this week "magical, dreamlike, a fantasy, etc…" and I truly think its worth the steeper price. This truly is a 5-star resort and your guests will be blown away!
Let me know if you have any questions because there is so much more I could talk about!
I hope this review is piece of mind for anyone reading outdated/rare negative feedback about the resort. I honestly have no idea why anyone would complain about PPC.
Wishing you ladies all the best with your upcoming nuptials!! Wish I could come along and experience it all over again! lol
