I will briefly discuss my general thoughts and likes about the resort then will focus on a wedding review. Likes and dislikes, are completely subjective and there are plenty of reviews that focus on location, food grounds etc.
Everyone one of my 16 guests loved this hotel. The grounds, location, staff -the food not everyone was as crazy for, but the majority thought it was fantastic.
The entertainment is good, the fire show was great. And the staff is fantastic. We especially enjoyed David "cappuccino ", Tino Valenzuela, Victoria(trainee-NY), Issac in the photoshop, and Joaquin in room services.
I had a wonderful spa treatment as a gift. The holistic massage performed by Moises was amazing. It was set in a jungle cabana in a stunning setting. Highly recommend!
Our Premium Jr Suites in building 15b was located at the main fountain and is a perfect location between the lobby, beach and near all restaurants, while being far enough from the nightly noise.
One more shoot out to "Le Piel" or The Skins, a weekly cover band that were truly fantastic. Rudy and the rest of the band were amazing musicians. Only downside, is they are only there once a week.
The wedding was amazing. We purchased the ultimate wedding package and added about 1400 USD in upgrades which included, colour fabric for canopy, colour napkins, mariachi band etc centrepieces and flower arrangements. Set up fees for my fairy lights and table decor. After conversion the cost of an 18 person wedding, hair + makeup, dress steaming, complimentary couples massage, wedding ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, 50 photos and video, tons of floral decor etc etc was about 5800 Canadian $. Not including our ten day stay. Great value and beauty for our money. Nayeli our wedding coordinator went above and beyond for us and I highly recommend her. Likewise, my hair and make up was fantastic. The two ladies that did me and my bridesmaids hair were great. I only remember Laura's name who did my friend, but my girl was so amazing I wish I wrote her name down. My hair and make up we wow factor amazing. For our reception, We ate shrimp pastry thing for our app (not my fav), Green Salad with citrus dressing ( the best thing ever), and the Surf and Turf, filet mignon, mine was well done special for me and still was like butter.
We are so over the moon happy with our photos, that they deserve special mention. We paid an additional $900 USD to upgrade to gold package. That gave us photos until the end of the night, in multiple locations, including friends and family. Teo our photographer was fantastic both as a person and photographer. We love, love, love our pictures he took.
I hope this review helps future brides!
