I was really annoyed at first that she rained on my parade because the Shangri-La Caribe was EXACTLY what we wanted. I was fuming and vented to FI and he was actually totally on her side...and eventually I came around as well. I just couldn't risk inviting 100 people to this property for our wedding and not have any garuantees that it would be in great condition.
All this said, Christine assured us that the staff was committed to keeping the Shangri-La in great working order and throw a wonderful wedding and I was inclined to believe her. And the reviews on Tripadvisor are outstanding! So, if you are going to get married there before they close, I wish you lots of luck and a dream wedding! Just felt like I had to share this info/POV...
Best of luck!!!

FI was worried about the service as well, but we hadn't thought about the state of the buildings... Another sad thing is that we'd never be able to revisit the place for an anniversary in future.
That all said, all the reviews have been outstanding and Christine has been really great too over email... plus, we have a very small wedding of very low-key people, so I'm not overly concerned...
Ack! I'm definitely concerned, but I think my love of the place is overriding it!!!
We just discussed the room reservations and then went to see how much flights would be and were told $1,000 each! I checked online and came up with flights for $750 all taxes included each, so I think we can do it...
Ah, what we do when we have a favorite place, right?

If we go ahead with our wedding at Shangri-La I"ll be sure to post a review and pics!

I read the posts to FI and he admitted he hadn't thought about that (the repairs on the property - or them not doing them).. but I think we're still good to go with the Shangri-La.
Thanks for the good luck wishes and same to you!

And the wedding date is.... (drumroll)... 12.12.08! Friday, December 12, 2008.
I can't wait!
The wedding date is booked, the judge is booked and our room is booked. Phew! Now we have to book our airline ticket. We're hoping some cheaper flights open up (the charter airlines should be posting any day now).

That sounds awesome. There are so many hotels nearby, I'm sure that my guests will have options if they choose not to stay at Shangri-La.
I can't wait to see it all in December!

The best thing is to contact them again to confirm one way or another.
