@laquanharris I'm also getting married at an AMResorts. My resort isn't even open yet. So like you I have some concerns as I'll be in the "working out the kinks" wave of brides getting married there. Like the other ladies said take the reviews with a grain of salt you chose that resort for reason. You'll be fine. Shoot, my resort has some bad reviews too and they're not even open yet!!!

@calgarybride2015 I agree! There are some reviews out there complaining that there are bugs or that it rained. Did anyone tell these people they're going to a tropical destination? I would take them with a grain of salt because some people really expect others to put a red carpet under their feet as they walk, while paying very little money. I find that you always get what you pay for and you should adjust expectations accordingly. I remember reading reviews on the hotel we booked and some lady was complaining about literally everything, things that I was like, "seriously?". She just seemed so uptight, and then she complained that some teenage boy came up and asked her if she would like to see his d***. Bahaha I laughed so hard when I read that.


Maybe see if there are bad things that are actually legitimate concerns that the resort can actually control. For example, if quite a few people complained that the food made them sick (in reviews that span across several months) perhaps I would be a little worried. If someone complained that their AC didn't work in their room I don't think it's a big deal. Things break in the best of resorts but usually they either change rooms or fix it. Also, new resorts always have kinks to work out and their first reviews sometimes are not the greatest but then they improve. 


Focus on what you liked about the resort and why you chose it. People will always complain about something but also keep in mind that you will be traveling with a whole bunch of people and that alone will make it more enjoyable ;)
