    Hi there,

     

    After lots of searching for resorts, i'm very close to deciding on Secrets Capri.  Is there anyone out there who has recently married there or plans to?  Thanks!

        My TA mentioned this one to me when I was looking for properties - she stayed there three times, and had also stayed at Secrets Maroma and Secrets Silversands. She actually mentioned that the other two are both newer than the Secrets Capri, and Maroma beach is rated one of the top 10 beaches. Have you thought about the others at all?

            Thanks Jordan,

             

            I originally wanted Secrets Maroma.  However, i decided it may be too expensive for some of our guests.  I really like the look and layout of Capri over Silversands and The Vine.  But it's tough to find anyone who can provide input on having a wedding there.  The wedding planners on site at the resort have been very forthcoming with info and provide quick replies to my questions.  They've provided beautiful photos of their wedding set ups.  I think we're going to go ahead with Secrets Capri.  Hopefully we choose right!  

             

            I see you're having your wedding at The Royal.  I've heard nice things about your resort as well.  I like that they'll allow children on-site to attend the wedding.

              You should give Doris a call if you're having doubts - she can probably give you some good feedback! You may also consider having a TA book your wedding guests. I originally hadn't planned to, but when I reached out to a few of the hotels I was considering about block rates, they all asked who my TA was before they'd give me anything, so I got in touch with her. She ended up not only helping me decide which resort was best for what I wanted, but also got me a great deal on rooms, and a bridal deal where my FI and I get $50 back for every room our guests book to help pay for ours (and guests don't know this). So far we have booked 20 rooms with our wedding, so $1000 back for us! (I also then don't have to mess with helping guests who arent travel savvy book, which is awesome.) Using any TA, whoever you choose, shouldnt cos't you anything, and I didnt have to put any money down to hold rooms or guarantee a certain amount or anything (some ask you too, I know).

               

              So far I have been really happy with the Royal! You're right that they do allow kids day-of, and there are two other Real Resorts sister properties right next to it, so if the Royal is too expensive for anyone, they can also stay at one of the others, for less money (and they're kid friendly) and they still count as Real guests, so it doesn jack my wedding price up!

               

              I'm sure if you go with Capri, it will be perfect! Good luck with all the planning :)
