Our TA has suggested El Dorado Royale for our Sept 2012 wedding. It looks great except what appears to be, after searching this site, an age old dilemma The outside vendor deal and their list of photographers. I don't see any recent reviews. Does anyone have any insight on this? Any other suggestions on this topic? It just seems a little shady to have to pay $500 extra to the resort for not using one of their 3-4 choices. This may be a deal breaker for me.
The only other question at the moment - Will those traveling alone still feel comfortable at this resort, or is it too intimate for those who aren't coming as a couple? I want everyone to have a fun and relaxing time.
