The resort's idea is from from ocean front- you may have a glimps of the ocean if you had binoculars- to the point that literally almost all my guests ended up upgrading to the preferred side. This made me feel a bit bad although no one really seemed to mind paying the difference and were very happy with their new rooms. If I would have know, I would have been more clear and also gotten a group rate on the preferred side from the beginning. With that being said, I also want to note that Teresa was great from vacations for less. We had a huge snow storm in Denver and I had people jumping on flights not even knowing if they would have a room when they arrived. When they landed, Teresa had taken care of it all.
For those of you planning on staying at the resort after they wedding as a honeymoon, it is not really that as you run in to your friends and family everywhere, them asking you to dinner, etc. unless they are leaving early, just be prepared it may not be what you think of. Looking back now, I would have switched resorts.
Honestly, that is about the only two downfalls, pilar and staff were wonderful, we did a private dinner at tamarinds which they closed for the night which was awesome, could not have been more pleased with the flowers, attention to detail, the dj, they pulled it together awesome. We used adventure photos for a ttd which was unbelievable at the cenote, really it was great!!!!
Stay tuned for pages of re-cap-
Oh, and they did menu cards for me without even asking in matching wedding colors!
Congrats!! Glad everything went great! Can't wait to read all about it
