When I was there there were only 2 bars open but they are adding restaurants and maybe bars so I would check with your wedding coordinator. There is the
I have a question! I need recommendations for bars/social locations within the resort. We aren't having many formal gatherings except the wedding ceremony and reception, so I want to designate a time every day where our guests can come together and mingle with us and each other. We want to pick a bar or location where everyone can meet for pre-dinner drinks and socializing. My fiance and I would commit to being at a certain location at a certain time each day, and whoever else wants to show up can. We're thinking it would be cocktail hour, so between 5:30 and 7 or so, and people would be dressed for dinner, rather than in swimsuits.
Can you recommend a bar or location that would be good for this?
By the way, Melissa, your photos are gorgeous!
We did a Welcome Dinner on the beach the night before the wedding. It was really nice...They only bad thing was when it got dark...The lights they provided did not light up the area very good. Kind of a bummer! We asked for more lights and it sounded like they were going to get more but they never did. We also did a photo slide show at the Welcome Dinner. This was BBQ buffet dinner which was a private event for 4 hours but I think we only stayed on the beach for about 3 hours since it was so dark and we all went to the Aquanox bar to hang out.
I wore wedges for the ceremony and then changed into heels for the ceremony. I can post pics if you want..just let me know.
I wanted fireworks and fire dancers but they said no and I have not heard anyone that has done this.
YOU will LOVE this resort! It is AMAZING! All our guests are still raving about the resort and say they can't believe we picked such a great resort! When you think of Mexico you think of all those large resorts with 500plus rooms which are great but for a wedding a small boutique resort was the perfect choice! We want to go back for our 1 year anniversary (Even though we always choose adult only resorts when we go to Mexico.)
So many!! Did you guys do a welcome dinner? We are doing it Friday on the beach Mexican BBQ with the donkey. We added the s'mores fire pit but I haven't really seen pics. I also asked my wc what do they use like chairs or some sort of seating by the fire. The wedding is Saturday which we are having on the terrace. The ceremony will be on The beach. I'm still on the search for shoes. What did you wear?
Um what else so many things. How'd everything go once you were down there. I know we have the wc here then the wc there. They're everywhere! Lol I don't know if anyone else has asked but I wanted fireworks for the wedding like at the end of the night. My WC said we couldn't do them. I don't know if its because on the beach but can't they light them. Has anyone else had a fireworks display?
Lots of questions! I'm sure some more will come to me later. I also saw you and your mom posted on trip advisor. I always check to see what new reviews people have given about the hotel. I never saw this hotel on my site visit. My fianc© actually picked it out so fingers crossed. I'm sure everything will be fine
