@stephygirl Thank so much for your input! I do feel good knowing that you had such a good experience. Yanet did actually write me back today and tell me that I can use the Palenque Terrace for my cocktail hour now. I'm not sure what the confusion was, but I think I'm just going to go with it! I kind of want my cocktail hour to be in a different place than the reception area, just so that the space won't look as cluttered (although maybe it wouldn't?). I also don't want people to sit at their tables and such during cocktail hour - I would rather people be mingling and then the reception space be a surprise. I know that everything will work out... I think knowing it's less than six months away is just making me stressed! HA! I really appreciate all of your reassurance!

@Danielle1 - Glad it all sorted itself out! I definitely know what you mean about wanting a special place for the reception. I felt the same way.
So exciting that it's coming up soon! No need to stress, it will all turn out great. We planned ours in less than 5 months and had the best time!

Booked my hair and makeup in for 11am...very excited!
Emailed my coordinator, who sent me info regarding the companies to contact re the Charicaturist but still no replies from either! Will keep chasing though.
I'd like a sparkler exit, so would be used outside only.
I decided to keep my ceremony at 3pm.....you're right, it will still be hot regardless and I really want to have good lighting for our pics.
Haven't heard about Mercado 23, will have a look into it.

I'm new to the forum and thought I'd introduce myself! I'm Sam I'm from San Francisco and I'm planning a wedding at Beach Palace in December 2016. I'm in the process of reviewing the contracts for both the ceremony and the room block. Quick question regarding the group rates - I'm concerned that they are a little high (based on my comparison to this year's rate for the same time period). Has anyone experienced a situation where your guests found cheaper room rates on the actual Beach Palace website (or another travel site, such as Expedia)? If so, were you able to negotiate or reason with the resort to lower the rate? Also, as an aside, I do not plan on using a travel agent.
I inquired about price adjustment policies for group rates (I read in another thread that a past bride at Moon Palace was able to get a 1 time price adjustment guarantee), but was told that they will not adjust rates for any reason.
Any feedback is appreciated. Thank you so much!

@greeneggsnsam Hi! Welcome to the forum. I'm getting married around the same time except this year.
I'm not too sure how comparable the rates would be as i'm flying out of Toronto, Canada, but I do know that December is considered high season for travel so it's a bit more of a costly month to book.
Palace resorts have a lot of perks if you book as a group. I'm not sure how that would work if you're all planning to book on your own, but there may be some risk in doing that with availability and having to ensure that your guests book before the resort is booked etc etc.
I'm actually very glad we went with a travel agent as she was able to really organize the entire group and make sure everyone paid their final payment in time. We are now two months away and the resort is almost fully booked. My travel agent actually made an inquiry to add an additional room to my room block and they said the resort is booked up.
If you get an agent and they designate a room block those are guaranteed rooms for your guests and it will also count toward all of the group benefits that palace offers.
If you have any other questions, feel free to DM me! I'm two months away now

Thanks for the feedback, @perianjay! We definitely want to book as a group (as the perks seem AMAZING!). From your experience, it sounds like having a travel agent to help with coordination is really beneficial. I've reached out to one to see what kinds of services they offer.
As for the room block, I had no idea the resort was so popular! I am planning on blocking 25 rooms (since they require a huge deposit if the reserved room block exceeds 25).

@greeneggsnsam Good idea! It's a lot easier to have a travel agent to help coordinate and also to follow up with your guests. Believe me it becomes very stressful at some points so you don't want to be worrying about your guests booking and chasing them etc. My travel agent was a huge help with that and she also helped by sometimes liaising with the resort when I needed her to. If you ever have questions just let me know.
December is a really popular month it seems. There's another wedding the same week we are down there at our resort as well. I think a few days before ours.

Hello Beach Palace brides!!! My wedding is just around the corner on 12/12/15 and we are in the process of finalizing menus! So much left to do with so little time! Does anyone on this forum have recommendations on what to get or to avoid? We are thinking the Mexican buffet with some substitutions from the Carribean buffet for our welcome beach party and the Italian buffet with some substitutions from the International buffet. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

@FutureMrsGarcia congrats on your big day being so soon!! Am I correct that you have a big group going (90ish people?). If so, please let me know how it goes with a large group! I can't wait to hear all about your wedding!
Does anyone know if we can seat 10 people at a table for private events (or will they only seat 8 people per table?)
