I've just returned from the resort, and I will begin working on my review shortly (I know you guys love pictures and I am waiting on my guests to send me a few from the ceremony so I can share them with you all).
However, I will try to address your concerns- so just put a message on here and I will reply as soon as I can. As far as the rooms in the French Village and the Caribbean Village, in my opinion the biggest difference would be the tv. I stayed in a Honeymoon Suite in the French Village and we had a 46 inch flat screen versus one of our guests stayed in the Caribbean Village and they had a tube as the tv. Other than that, everything was pretty much the same in my opinion. As far as the musty smell in the French Village, I didn't smell anything and my guest didn't complain either. (Oh yeah, and a ton of mosquitoes in the Caribbean Village- lol! I spent the night before the wedding in my parents room in the Caribbean Village and I woke up with 14 bites--4 of them on my face!! Lol)
Personally, if we return to Beaches I'd stay in the Caribbean Village because it is closer to everything--beach, central location for restaurants, etc.
Just a piece of information while it's on my mind. Someone said on this thread before, everything will NOT go as planned. So try your best to prepare for the unexpected. For example, we arrived last Wednesday on an American Airlines flight...I've returned to Houston and I have yet to receive our most important piece of luggage with ALL of our wedding items, etc. The suitcase never arrived to Turks and AA can not find our luggage. Originally I did not freak out, but by Thursday evening- Friday morning.....I was a mess. My bridal jewelry is in that luggage, items for our guests, my husbands things that he needed for the ceremony, etc. With that said, we truly had to improvise. Seriously. It really felt like it was going to be a disaster, but we truly made it work...and it turned out to be a beautiful day even though we NEVER received our luggage.
With that said, girls try your best to take all of your necessary items for the wedding in a carry on bag. It will save you a lot of heartache. Also, if you can avoid it- DO NOT FLY WITH AMERICAN AIRLINES! There were so many of us (staying at various resorts on Grace Bay) that flew American Airlines and did not receive our luggage. I can go on and on about them..but I'll hush.
Anyway, as soon as I get some pictures I will post the review. Oh yeah, Ileana with Tropical Imaging truly made us forget about our lost luggage when we met with her Friday and while we took pictures Saturday. You HAVE to book her! We got a chance to meet her parents and we truly had a great time!
