My husband and I were married there April 30th of last year. Our wedding coordinator was Vinnette (sp?). She was AMAZING. The sandals photographers are great--we loved our photos. They don't touch them up or anything but you can do a lot of that on your own anyway. We were so incredibly impressed with our whole experience. What I will tell you--the people that you talk to on the phone are in Miami. They are salesmen/women. They are NOT (and many have never been) onsite. Why I am telling you this is because when you get there, some things may change. Shouldn't be an issue since it is just the two of you (like it was with us). Don't stress. Vinnette or whomever you deal with on site will make everything perfect. I had my hair and makeup done at the spa and they were great. They do a fantastic job.
As far as location goes, I agree with Kat2012--the beach isn't the best place. We were married on the pier outside Kimono's because that was the prettiest spot to us. There is one gazebo that most people get married at but honestly, I didn't like it. They don't make you decide any of that until you get there anyway so you will have time to look around some beforehand.
I also have a few pictures in my profile. I can get you more if you want to look--I just couldn't get them to upload.
Let me know if I can help!

I didnt have a really good experience with the first wedding coordinator we were put with who was Diedra so we are getitng a new one. We chose the beautiful beginnings package and we didnt have a photographer so we had to go with Sandals...I know its expensive but at this point we dont have a choice. I could use all the suggestions and advice I can get from any of you that have been married here. I am planning on getting my hair and make up done at the spa there. Please give me all advice and suggestions...I really could use it. Thanks girls.
