Wedding in Costa Rica

Hi,

My fiance and I are looking to get married in Costa Rica in November of 2007. We have been looking at the Fiesta Premier. We would likely have a group of 50+ people attending. I have read all of the reviews and looked at the pictures on tripadvisor, but would like to see more pictures before making a decision.

Does anyone have more online pictures of Fiesta Premier, especially of weddings at this resort?

Can anyone give more specific details of weddings held at this resort?

You can contact me directly at tanyaj01@yahoo.ca

Thanks in advance!!

Tanya.

I am friends with the owners of the resort and have ample knowledge about it. I can tell you that their resort is brand new with manicured grounds, great food, private beach, and the service is very friendly and professional. The weddings are held on the beach and the receptions are generally done in the main restaurant or along the main pool. The special thing about their weddings is that they will help you with all the special arrangements such as catering, decoration, music, priest, flowers, makeup, and all legal requirements. I wouldn´t hesitate to book a wedding at this resort as they are highly professional and will deliver a very stylish wedding for you.

We are planning a trip to Fiesta Premier next year. It sounds quite nice, and is getting great reviews, but under no circumstances is it brand new. I quote from the Frommer's guide:

"This was the first all-inclusive resort in the Guanacaste region. It has changed its name and management at least three times, but it seems to have settled down and been put into the best shape of its career. Most of the duplex villas can be separated into two rooms or shared by a family or two couples. Inside, one room is equipped with a king-size bed; the other has two queen-size beds. All rooms have marble floors, large bathrooms, and small private patios or balconies. The resort is quite spread out, so if you don't want to do a lot of walking or wait for the minivan shuttles, ask for a room near the main pool and restaurants. If you want a good view, ask for one on the hill overlooking the bay. For those seeking more isolation, there are rooms located in the dry forest behind the resort. The hotel has a host of organized sports and activities, including daily programs for children. It also has its own small crescent-shape swath of beach, which is very calm and protected for swimming. A dinner theater and disco complex offers up nightly entertainment revues and late-night dancing, and there's even a small casino on-site."

If you do a search on this forum for Fiesta Premier wedding, you will find positive comments from people who have been married or attended weddings here! Wishing you all the best!

The hotel was completely remodeled by arquitect Ronald Zürcher, so yes...I would say that the hotel is brand new compared to what it looked like when it was called "Blue Bay Resort".

Does Tanya need to know (for her family and friends when making reservations - flights or other transport) that there are two Hermosa's? Maybe it won't be a concern - I just know some people find themselves in communities that the event is not happening in - esp. in Costa Rica!! Have a great wedding Tanya. I stayed south of Hermosa, Guanacaste and LOVED the area. The Beuna Vista Combo Tour to the Rincon de la Vieja area by J and C Tours (jandctours.com) was awesome.

I didn't realize that there were two hermosas in Costa Rica. We are still looking at a few different caribbean/latin american locations to get married in, so we haven't looked too specifically at each location yet. Just trying to get some feedback on each location before we make our decision.

Thanks!

Doesn't anyone have pictures? I really want to get married at this resort as I think that it has everything that my guests would be looking for, and it is a reasonable price. My fiance and I would be going to Paradisus Playa Conchal for the second week for our honeymoon. I need to convince my fiance that this is the right resort for our wedding, and he would like to see some pictures. He is still unsure of the black beaches and room size.

Any info or pictures would be greatly appreciated.

We just got back from getting married at the Fiesta a few weeks ago and it was our second trip to the Fiesta Premier. What an amazing time. Although it might not be brand new - it sure looks like it is. I honestly couldn't tell that it had previously been another resort as the rooms look spotless as do the restaurants, pools and grounds. Always clean and beautiful. They had also made some changes to it since our last visit by adding an extra restaurant and snack bar which were great as well. I will email you with some pics and details as soon as I can. I honestly don't think you can go wrong with this place. Some of my well-travelled guests told me it was the best food they had at any resort and most of them wouldn't hesitate to come back.
