Oops I missed a questions. As far as the meals, you HAVE to try the puff pastry filled with shrimp. It was amazing. There was a scallop and spinach appetizer as well that included mozzarella, but it was just at thick layer of cheese laid on top of the scallops, wasn't a fan. The tuna salad was amazing BUT we went with the cream corn soup. I am not a fan of cream corn but my goodness that soup was amazing, it as a shrimp wonton type thing in it, lol, it was great. Then we tried the chicken breast filled with tiger shrimp, it was awesome. The beef tenderloin was okay but it was cooked well done and I prefer medium. You can pick up to three main courses BUT you have to give them exact head count for each meal before hand. The desserts I don't remember too well but we ended up just picking the brownie with ice cream because of course the wedding cake will be there.

Junior Suite Ocean View $162 USD per person per night based in double occupancy x 2 persons = $324 USD per room per night based in double occupancy
Junior Suite Ocean View $156 USD per person per night based in triple occupancy x 3 persons = $468 USD per room per night based in triple occupancy
Junior Suite Ocean View $210 USD per room per night based in single occupancy
I wasn't aware of the site visit being complimentary but that is awesome! It is included in my contract as well. I definitely want to take advantage of that! How was the weather in December? I'm thinking we'll probably try to take it sometime this winter as well. My room block cut off date is 11/10/12, so we may have to go before then. I am waiting on a reply from Zitlaly to let me know when we have to use that - who wouldnt take 2 free nights in Cabo??!!!
Which meals did you like? Also, did you choose the beach wedding? We chose the ceremony on the beach and the reception at the cascada pool terrace. What about music? I see alot of people just rent the sound system which I think is what we want to do also. Do they provide music during the ceremony? I keep forgetting about that part!! See - i knew I was going to have a ton of q's for you!!
We picked the wedding package that cost $2,199 - which includes quite a bit including my hair, makeup, etc. I have no plans of adding too much fancy stuff so we'll probably just stick with what comes with it except for the sound system rental!! We want to have a beach bonfire the night before the wedding and I want to do a trash the dress so with those extra charges, I think keeping the wedding package as is will be good enough!!
I'm excited to hear your details!! Happy planning!!
