We just arrived at now jade this afternoon. Our wedding is on April 13th. We came to a wedding a few years ago in the mayan riviera at Bahia principe tulum in June and fell in love with the ocean and the beaches. And so we decided to get married here and picked now jade because it was supposed to be a bit on the higher end then Bahia principe.
To be honest, first impression I was very disapointed. I know that it's only been one day but the buffet is so gross, and seriously I eat everything. We got to it right when it opened and EVERYTHING was cold. The meat station the juat leave a giant knife lying there and you have to cut your own meat..really! They had this pasta station with two types of noodles and two sauces..one red and one white. And they just out the noodles in a frying pan and poor the totally watered down sauce over top for a few mins and done. I am slightly embrassed for when all our guests to arrive and see what they are paying for. We are really hoping the a la carts have better food.
And castaways is so run down looking during the day. The bar is blue tile and half of it like looks almost rusted with missing tiles everywhere and half the lights in cAstaways are missing their covers and just snow dusty old mismatched light bulbs.
The service is lousy. We are in the preferred side which is supposed to be better then the rest...and I feel really sorry for those not staying in preferred. We requested a crib 4 times.....4. It was way past our cranky as hell sons bedtime by the time it arrived.
The pillows are paper thin and rock hard.
And their is construction at both pools all throughout the day. They are building a new bar at each one. And the worst part about the while thing is that the beach is unswimmable. Maybe it's the time of year but it's so windy they have the red flags up and they said its usually like this. The waves are so high and rough and the beach is covered in gross sea weed.
The rooms are very pretty though. Our jacuzzi on our deck is so gross looking there's no way I am going in it.
Urgh! Just frustrated and disapointed.
Sorry for the rant, just really upset that we paid extra money to stay in a resort that is supposed to be so great and Bahia principe was a million times cleaner, nicer and the food at the buffet was fantastic and the beachea were pure white and with calm water. They put giant sand bags to slow down the waves so my kids could actually go in the water. Here it's so dangerous there is no way.
Okay I am done conplaininf. Hopefully tomorrow is a much improved day.

Hopefully the rest of your stay will make up for the horrible first day you had.

As far as the construction goes, are they building swim up bars? How long will construction last? My wedding is the end of May and if construction is still going on, I would like to warn my guests. The more they're prepared for {time share salesman/delayed check in/ etc}, the less stressful it will be.

Can't wait to hear about your wedding!

So I'm wondering about this too! My fiance and the groomsmen will be wearing tan, linen suits. Is it weird if my dad wears the same thing? He was asking about black - I think it's a little intense for the beach, esp cuz the groom will be in tan. I don't want to micromanage though, so I guess it's not a big deal.

It just hit me today that I need to find my Dad something to wear. Since my Mom passed away from Breast Cancer I have been doing his shopping for clothes. The wedding is no different I suppose. I'm not sure what he'll wear...kinda want him in something different from my FI.

My apologies for being verbose. I'm a little emotional right now. I miss my Mom...

I'm booked with Styling Trio. I learned my lesson already with makeup and I absolutely want the airbrushing, and I want it to last. But due to the vendor fee being charged I'm going to their salon in PDC.

They offered me that option but I'm unsure of the prices for a cab. My resort is about 30 minutes away...so I'm told.

Is your resort in PDC?
