Holy seaweed batman!!! Wasn't like that in January but like you said could have been worse due to the tropical storm.

Sorry your trip wasn't as great as it could have been but I hope it helped some!!

Wow - that's incredible! I knew it was bad but those pics put a whole different perspective on it. We're travelling in October so I hope its improved by then!

Aw it does suck that things didn't go as well as planned. We also kind of wasted a trip down there and it truly sucks. We had a similar experience with tons of rain during one of our trips, and we did the same, ended up swimming in the rain haha :) 

 

I hope the seaweed is not as bad in August, we're running out of time for our wedding. I guess I'll have to channel my inner mermaid and become one with the seaweed, because there's no way I'd stay at the pool for 7 days. I'd go nuts! I always love the beach :)

If it's any consolation, I've been to the area during monsoon rain, which is not the greatest. It wasn't a wedding-related trip but still makes you feel a bit ripped off on the vacation front. We also recently were there for vacation and planned a site visit at our resort. I was so sick during that visit - bronchitis and pink eye, and then shortly thereafter developed a sinus infection. Hope the FI's taste buds were functioning for the lengthy menu tasting that we did, since mine were certainly not

At least swimming in the rain is really fun and cuts down on the crowds at the pools

I got an unbeatable quote for Grand Sirenis. No matter our selection I think we're closing in on a choice.

How much if you don't mind me being nosy??

@@JoannaBanana that's so good. I feel like we booked the Sirenis at a bad time especially considering how cheap @@calgarybride2015's package was. Mine is still around the $2000 mark and I wish it was lower since we wanted more friends to come but they can't afford it.

Thank you.  I actually plan on retiring this thread once I confirm a booking.  It has too much pre-preplanning and I'd like for my real planning thread to have my actual username, resort, and date in the title.  So hopefully you'll see a new thread for me at the beginning of July.
