OH! btw forgot to mention after i bitched about the cake price, they reduced the price from $250 for a 3 tier cake to $50 for a 2 tier cake.

ALSO - i was NOT told about the infinity pool or la playa being closed for a few weeks, but probably because my wedding is in august this doesnt effect me

      Hi Girls!

      I'm back! I can't believe we've been gone 2 weeks. It seems more like 2 days.

      Everything was beautiful! I'll write more later. I need to decompress, but regarding the pool. It was one of the first things we noticed, so Barrie, we had our reception at the terrace, and it was really nice. There is a firepit there and the set-up really turned out nice. I really, really liked having the firepit there.

      The closed pool didn't seem to cause any issues at all. I think most people hang out at the pool bar at the Westin anyway. There are also pools located in the Club Regina, where we stayed. The Club was absolutely perfect.

      We had a few issues with the cake and Transcabo! If anyone has booked them. they are going to screw you! There is something going on with taxi unions and Transcabo. I had booked them for our welcome dinner Saturday night. I called to confirm, and they told me they weren't coming! It was madness! I think I have lost over $600 from them. They have royally screwed me. Will write more about this later too.
      Steph and Ben - 6/8/08! We did it!

          Congrats!!! I am so happy for you both. I can't wait to hear all the details your wedding. Post some pics too! I am glad you liked your reception on the Terrace. I have viewed pictures and the fire pit looks very cool. Were there construction walls up around the pool before you left? Was it an eye sore? We were also worried about overcrowding around the other pools.

          We are leaving on the 25th.

            The terrace the Maura has a picture of is actually the terrace right above the Bugambilias.

            Bradley, who I have to say is AWESOME!, has given me a gallery of online photos. I can't believe we already have professional pics.

            I'll write a review on another thread sometime later and post more pics.

                  The cake turned into a bit of cake drama. I had told Lorena the day before that the cake should be offered to guests, but because we chose to have an additional dessert, not a lot of people would want cake. I also told her we would do cake cutting at 5:30, during cocktail hour.

                  We get to cocktail hour, do our cake cutting, and they whisked the cake away, never to be seen again! It was a beautiful cake, and I was really looking forward to admiring eat, and eating it throughout the week. I thought they would bring it back after they took it away when the weather cooled, but they never did.

                  The next day, I called the Westin to have our cake delivered. I was expecting the whole cake, with the top tier, and the beautiful coral white chocolate topper. Well, 4 hours later, they deliver the bottom half of the cake with no cake topper, and no top layer. I called and asked Lorena where our cake was because this wasn't our cake? She says, the banquet manager cut the top layer of our cake the night before, and offered cake to everyone (which never happened, I asked everyone, and people were wanting cake), but nobody accepted. A full on lie. I''m still annoyed over the situation, and I'm annoyed with their lies. That is the cake drama, and I'm sad I never was able to really enjoy our cake.

                    BTW, the cake we ordered was chocolate with rasberry filling, with buttercream, but the buttercream was whipped cream. It was good, very light, not really what I expected.
