    hi - i keep received conflicting information about these two beachfront properties in northern PDC. some have them both closed already, others have one or the other closed, some have them open through the end of 08. just wondering if anyone has more concrete info...can't seem to get a response from either property (which could be a sign!)

      I was told by both properties directly that they are closing at the beginning of April '08, which sucked for me b/c I am getting married in May '08 and they were both at the top of my list. Oh well!

        At least the Al Cielo will be open long enough for your wedding...that's good news!

        thanks for the info, guess its back to the drawing board for me :)

          Al Cielo will be open until the end of 2008! The lease was extended through December. So maybe you should go with that option and pick a hotel for everyone to stay at elsewhere? The WC, Donaji is really sweet. My guests are all staying at a mega-resort - Grand Riviera Maya Princess / Grand Sunset Princess b/c the rates were so low it was too hard to pass up and b/c I have so many, it made it easier (expecting btwn 80 and 110 at this point). And it seems nice and got good food reviews. But there are other cuter options...

          Another option, though further away, is Ana y Jose beach club. It is really nice, but just far away - in rustic Tulum. I think Shangri La is planning on reopening down there someday in the future. I didn't want to wait that long though.

          There is also a place called Tres Rios that seems kinda cool and naturey that is opening this summer I think.

          And lastly, there is a place called Petite Lafitte which includes breakfast and dinner I think, but is not AI, and I believe they do weddings. It was too small for my group sadly, but it is cute and not mega if that is what you're going for.

            Las Palapas wrote me back to say that they aren't closing until August '08, maybe later. Not sure when you want to get married, but that gives you a little more time. You should write them. I'm a little sad to find this out now, but I guess for just a little more $ my guests are getting AI, so that is nice. But the palapas look so cute!

              Thanks SO much for passing along all of this information! We ARE looking for a more intimate spot for our ceremony and reception (as opposed to a big resort). We were thinking of getting married in January or February '09, but if Al Cielo is really staying open until the end of the year, we might considering moving our date up to November '08. I'll give them a call soon...

              Can't thank you enough for the other location suggests you made, too...I'll look into those, as well.
