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.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
