First of all, if you are booked in the Sunrise section- GET IT CHANGED ASAP!!! This is a damn construction site.. literally. The lobby was full of drilling, hammers & drywall dust. Then our room wasn't ready because somebody was still in it.. so we were told it would be a "few hours". So in the meantime, we were forced to listen to a TIMESHARE SALES PITCH by a pushy salesperson, pressuring us to meet him for breakfast tomorrow morning "for a quick information session". Um, no thanks.
Then we were put in to a temporary room while we waited for ours, and we had to walk like half a mile THROUGH A CONSTRUCTION ZONE, complete with all of us getting construction dust in our eyes as we walked like 3 ft away from people drilling into the ground and laying concrete. Nice. The hallway of our section of Sunrise is covered in dust, nails, trash, and weird somewhat-skanky guests that look like they were given a free room in lieu of a free timeshare seminar.
Long story short, we raised holy hell to have us and all of our guests moved to Nizuc. Thank God our families don't get here until tomorrow- I would have been mortified to have them see this. I can't even describe how horrible it is. Sitting here crying as I type this post. This has been horrible. This "dream wedding" I have been planning for the last 8 months has just crumbled in a matter of minutes. I have been living & breathing this wedding, ensuring every detail is perfect.. this couldn't be any less perfect if it tried- it's the complete polar opposite.
Oh and we were starving so we went to for dinner at Bugambilia- and I can't convey how horrible it was. Nasty, gelatinous old food. I ate chips & salsa, my daughters had fries. That's it. I took a bite of one of the desserts and had to spit it out and thought I was going to puke.
I'll give more details later.. just wanted to tell you this in case you are coming here any time soon and are staying at Sunshine. The guy at the desk told us that our travel agent would have been notified of the construction.. I don't know how true that is, but regardless, I'm pissed. And sad. God this is a nightmare.
This sounds awful! I will be there tomorrow....we have booked the Nizuc. I'm just wondering how bad the ballroom will be as our reception is supposed to be in the Sunrise building....
I truly hope it gets better for you! Absolutely no one should be booked for a vacation in a construction zone!!
