Hi ladies,

 

In the process of choosing our resort. Our original focus was the Hard Rock but there have been a greater amount of positive reviews for the Majestic Colonial.  We want this is to be a fun trip for everyone of all ages.  Anyone care to share any experience with the casino?  I have some older ladies who would enjoy hitting up the slots. 

 

Thank you advance. :)

Tricia, if you go on trip advisor there is some reviews that mention the casino. The ones I read basically said it isn't really a casino just a room with a couple slots and a table. So if your looking for the casino experience I think hard rock would be definetly better. Overall fun with family majestic could be a winner did You check out the price difference between the two resorts?

    The casino is small, a few tables and slot machines...it was fine for our group who knew not to expect Vegas style. The dealers don't speak the best English which made it interesting :-) But still fun!

    Thank you so much ladies. That really helps. We don't have the quotes in yet, we're aiming for November 2014 or January 2015. That will help make the decision process easier, hopefully.  Happy planning ladies! :)

      thanks for the info!

      we are actually just going to do everything onsite...there will be younger children including our daughter so we wanted it to be easy to send them to bed with mom-mom when they are tired. :)

I upgraded our room because I read its not guaranteed the bride and groom will get upgraded on arrival so I didn't want to be disappointed. Is anyone planning any excursions or activities for their guests? My FI read somewhere there in paintball and now he wants to do that :S

        Hi Vanessa!

        I'm getting married on Dec 4th at the Elegance at 5pm! What day are you guys arriving at the resort? How many guests do you plan on having? It's so nice to meet someone having their ceremony on the same day! :)

        I'm getting married in November and I wanted to know if any past brides experienced hotel prices going down the closer it got to that time. We did not block rooms, and currently the rates are getting higher. I'm worried that by the time our guests try to book their rooms, rates will be too high.
