I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack.

 

I had terrible communication leading up to the wedding but again will say what I've read so many times before - the ladies at the resort KNOW what they are doing. We had a little rain on our wedding day and ended up moving the reception indoors but it was still the wedding of my dreams. It really was perfect!!! If anyone has any questions please let me know! I will try and do a review shortly!!!

 

PS Sophia, contact PSAV - I found them way more reasonable than JSAV

We stayed in the sunrise side and I wouldnt have had it any other way. There was way more "life" on this side. Nizuc was quieter, however pretty much all the wedding stuff is on the nizuc side so it is a little bit inconveniant shuttling over there all the time. Grand was beautiful but a ghost town compared to the other sides.

 

We had booked a family suite and were upgraded to the presidential suite when we arrived (I believe my travel agent had to fight for this upgrade - but she won) Most of our guests booked the lowest room category and they all had ocean views so that was nice. Really you cant go wrong with any room there.... they are phenominal!

 

Don't hesitate to ask any other questions!!!

Did they use their credits to upgrade (your guests)?

 

My TA doesn't know which section our room block is in, but she thinks it is the NIzuc side.  We just booked the garden view room, knowing we will be upgraded to the ocean view with our 75 room nights.  I figured that was good enough and that we could upgrade to conciege if we wanted to with our resort credits.  All of my guests also booked the garden view rooms, and I will let them know they can use resort credits to ocean view if they want. 

 

Did you do any tours with your credits?

My guests didn't use credits to upgrade - I believe their "garden view" rooms were just that good. I can't speak for the nizuc side but on the sunrise side everyones rooms seemed to be able to see the ocean - they weren't ocean facing like mine, but they definitly had an ocean view.

 

We did the dolphin swim and wet and wild - both we had a great time on. We pre-booked the dolphin swim so we all went the same day and had a great time at wet and wild also - it was an overcast day that we went so it really was the perfect time to go and we all had a blast. We had a few guests go to Chichen Itza (however you spell that) and they really enjoyed it but the bus was over 2 hours each way!! As for the rest of the resort credits, people visited the spa, played lots of golf, did the romantic dinner etc. I don't think any of us managed to use ALL of our resort credits!

Awesome, good to know! :) I'll have to find out from Coco when she gets back what she thought of the Nizuc side rooms in case that's where we end up!

 

Did you book the swim with the dolphins when you got to the resort or were you able to book before?  Were you able to use the resort credits for it?  I am confused by them- when it says that transportation is not included- but isn't it part of wet and wild?  I think that would be fun to do with all my guests after the wedding- is it only at certain times? 

 

 

Great pic!! You look gorgeous!!! :)

I did book the dolphin swim prior to going. I can give you my contacts name - she was very helpful. (we were also able to pre book golf tee times through her so the men liked this!) I guess if you book the wet and wild and the dolphin swim you can use the transportation but it is only at certain times. We booked huge 12 seater van cabs through the resort and it was pretty reasonable... about 800 pesos each way for 12 people and he waited allll day for us. We tipped him good too!

 

Just an FYI the pictures at the dolphin swim are outrageous prices so bring lots of $$ if you want to buy them. I just bought one of my son and it was $30US.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
