@PunkyAnna I know that Children under a certain age receive a reduced rate, but I don't think that they are free at all. I'd double check that with your travel agent, that's definitely something that they can answer.

    Hi everyone!!

     

    In response to Kristiliu, my Fiance and I did the site visit to Beach Palace on January 18, 2016 and I found that it was very helpful to actually see the locations in person because it will help me decided which decorations I would like to purchase, and to get an idea of how I would like things set up. I must say that the sky deck is absolutely gorgeous. As for the meetings with the vendors, we sat at a table in one of the ballroom areas. The table had the included basic white linen dinner set up so I was able to see what it looks like and get an idea of what I would like to add/ change for dinner table décor. We did the cake tastings while we waited for the vendors. The meetings were helpful only because I came prepared with a lot of questions. If I did not have questions prepared, It would have been just a basic overview of the services they offer. I have been reviewing the Gama House catalog and they were able to answer many of the questions that I had. We didn’t select any services immediately, and I didn’t get the impression that they would give a quote on the spot. We were told to contact the sales person for that company and they would work with us for quotes. We are getting married on August 27, 2016 and I have been planning since June 2015. The process is a bit frustrating when I try to get quotes from the vendors and I do not receive a response. My planner is wonderful, and she is usually able to contact the vendors and they respond. I’m just hoping it all comes together by August J.

     

    In response to SRamirez, I was told that for the sky bar, two speakers are sufficient. During the vendor meeting I was told that the lighting can be used to illuminate the cocktail area (If you are doing cocktail on one side of the pool and dinner on the next), or it can be used to illuminate the dance floor area. Hope this helpsJ.

        My site visit is booked for May 2-5 with meetings on the 3rd. Let me know if anyone needs pictures or has any questions I can ask while I'm there. Hopefully it's easier to get answers in person!

          Hello @jj5757, we tried the vanilla, lemon, and red velvet. The cake texture was a little different, it was like cheesecake rather than a regular cake. Of the flavors we tried, we decided on lemon.

            Hi @Tiffy27,

             

            We are going to be doing a site visit in May of 2017 as we are planning on booking BP for November of 2017 and definitely appreciate your feedback around your site visit.  Could you possibly share the questions that you had prepared in advance for the visit with the vendors?  I think will could help us on our site visit! :)

             

            Thanks!

            @PunkyAnna

            Palace has a summer deal. From June 1-August 31, 2016, 2 kids ages 4-12 are free (except if traveling on free, imperial or incentive week). Kids under 4 are always free. 

            Normally, they consider kids 4-17 years old.


            Hello, everyone!

             

            New to this site and forum. Getting married at Beach Palace August 4 of this year. Finding it difficult to get information from our off-site coordinator due to language barrier. Had asked her to send us a list of all Palace authorized vendors and she sent three - Gama?, DreamArt, and JSAV. Doesn't mention Zuniga or LatinAsia - are they authorized, and therefore no vendor fee applies? I've also been reading that different decor companies are playing fast and loose with set-up prices for lighting.

             

            We also know that we have to bring our birth certificates and our divorce decrees for on-site translation ($50/pg). What we're trying to ascertain is whether or not a divorce certificate (1 pg) is sufficient instead of our 5 page decrees. The coordinator was less than helpful in figuring it out. Any chance that anyone knows? Thanks in advance for any help.

              Hi we have decided we are are getting married at Beach Palace December 2016 would love to hear everyone's experience with their site visit or really anything in general about the Beach Palace or wedding there. I'm so excited but it is so far away:( Wish we could do a site visit but I work every other weekend so it is hard to find the time to leave. Thanks!

              @PunkyAnna

              Exciting! We got married there December 15, 2015 and had a great wedding week. We had our ceremony on the sky deck and our reception at the sky bar. It was beautiful! :)
