    Hey Michelle-

     

    You will love the Parrot Cay 1 bedroom suite!  Our friends hung out in our "living room" throughout the trip...like when it would start raining (the 15 minutes of rain we got every day...no biggie) we would all come to our room and play cards or would have an ice cold beer from the fridge and hang-out on the large patio... and it's literally in the middle of the resort and so convenient to everything.  You'll love it!!

      We also stayed in the Parrot Cay Suites, room 601! It was perfect, and SO close to everything. We had the same ladies around cleaning the rooms everyday. They were the sweetest, nicest ladies and always made sure we had everything we needed. :)

        Thanks Stella & LaurenMarie - this puts my mind at ease.  I have changed room categories like 3 times and kept second guessing myself.  Too many choices, it's so confusing!  I am going to stick with the Parott Cay and be happy!

          We loved our cleaning ladies, too!  They were soo nice and polite! 

           

          Just a word of advice for future visitors- they will sometimes try to "straighten" your room for you and misplace your things (not in a bad way...they're just trying to help), so if there's anything you don't want them to touch, you should put it in the safe!  :-)

            I just put my deposit down for Ileana from TI.  I am so excited for this.  I love everyone's pictures.  You all look so beautiful.

                We just got back from our wedding and we had an AMAZING time!! I'm trying to figure out how to post pictures here, but can't seem to get it to work!

                  Thanks for the feedback.  I am going to have my wedding on the beach as well.  Do they provide any type of decoration on the beach to have the ceremony under like poles with drapes, columns, etc?

                    Hmmmm....I guess the pictures posted! We had originally booked the Honeymoon Caicos Premium king, but we were upgraded to the Parrot Cay Honeymoon suite. All of my guests were in the turquoise rooms, and even those were very nice!!!! Our room was wonderful with one exception....we had ants ALL OVER the bathroom wall/sink when we first arrived. We called the concierge desk and they came in and sprayed them with something and then told us, "Close the door and don't go in for a bit." We weren't too happy at that point (to say the least), but didn't let it get us down. We went out to dinner, and when we came back the ants were gone...no further problems for the rest of our stay. 

                     

                    The food on the resort was awesome! I've stayed at plenty of all inclusive resorts and have always found the food bland and repetitive. Beaches was sooooo different. The food was fantastic! My bother in-law and hubby LOVED the jerk station, and I pretty much had pizza every day for lunch. 

                     

                    I had Evette as my wedding planner....she was friendly and nice, but seemed too busy to give us her full attention. We had to track her down the day we left to get a copy of the marriage certificate we had signed at our ceremony (I guess they are supposed to automatically give it to you after the reception) and our sand ceremony. I honestly don't think we would have gotten either had we not found her. May is a really busy month, so I know she had a full plate. Also, there were weddings going on everywhere, but they did a good job of making us feel special. The actual wedding ceremony was a complete blur, but the marriage officiant was really wonderful. He added nice touches to the vows that really made it sweet and meaningful even though we did not write them ourselves. We had the "Island Paradise" theme and the arch was absolutely GORGEOUS. We were married on the beach at 6:45pm, and it was just perfect. I'm waiting for pictures from my photographer, and will post them when they arrive. I was not too impressed with the bouquet that came with the package....it was kind of small and just really underwhelming. I ended up using a bouquet from Wedideas that I had brought with me. We did a 2 hour seated dinner after the wedding. The place settings and cake were very pretty.....I've heard mixed reviews about the cake flavors, but we LOVED ours!! We had vanilla on both layers and it was delicious :)

                     

                    There is just too much to write!!! I'm sure I'll think of some other details to add!
