I rarely have logged on the past few months. I was stunned to see this was still being discussed. Do you guys know you've been talking about this for 3 months now :shock:

This is off topic, but I've always wondered what motivates people to take vacations to tropical places, such as Mexico, in the summer? It's just that most people go to places like that to escape from winter at home. In the middle of July its hot and sunny at home, so I wouldn't think to go to a trop...

Re: "Every Guest"

In my case we paid for an ocean front honeymoon suite and we DID get what we paid for. I know, sunshine, that you did have issues with your room (I remember your wonderful trip report :D ) But I felt I needed to say that it isn't " every guest" cause we did get what we expected.

Buenaventura!!! I stayed there for two weeks this past March and it was awesome! Actually got married there. :D Excellent location and excellent service. The only downfall, and this didn't just happen to us, it happens to EVERY guest, is that when you check in you're not going to get a good room. Ev...

Re: murder in Pv

Sunshine311; I've been to this site several times and when I happen to visit it again I read the remarks made toward oneistwo and poddlelady, how this group seems to enjoy ridiculing these people. I just had to sign up and call BS. I see no point in trashing the integrity of the poster, maybe someb...

Just a thought, but why not take advantage of these guys and take whatever stuff you can get from them? After all, although pushy, they are not some cult or gang that's going to do you any physical harm. I know that on our next trip, my husband and I intend on doing a time share right away and altho...

"Another point - I hesitate to write this and I'm not trying to be vain here, but my husband is quite muscular. It was a very uneasy feeling having the young Mexican men eyeing him up. Call it a macho, man thing perhaps, and throw in some alcohol - liquid courage if you will - and it's a bit scary....

My BV Review (Typed up in Word first! LOL)

My husband and I, along with 8 others, stayed at this resort for two weeks; March 8 – 23rd. What an awesome place!! We had our wedding at the hotel and everything was perfect!! Our wedding was beautiful, and our wedding coordinator at the hotel, Carlos, took care of everything. Thanks to the Buenave...

I just spent 45 min typing a review of the Buenaventura and when I clicked submit, a message came up saying "No post mode specified". I clicked back and my message is gone!!!! AAGGGHHHH! I want to scream!! I guess I'll rewrite it, but not now, I got other things to get to..... I'm so mad.

PV Easter Break

I was so concerned over America's Spring Break when booking my trip that I didn't even think of PV's own Easter Break. Use you're own discretion, but I do not advise anyone go during this Easter long weekend. The holiday is the whole week and begins prior to Easter weekend; all the Mexicians flock t...

My Buenaventura Wedding

After months of research and planning, our wedding and two week vacation at the Buenaventura Grand is over. Wow, what an experience. I'll say right off that our wedding was perfect - better than perfect; it was more than I ever could have imagined and me and my husband couldn't have asked for more. ...

Saving Chairs

OK, I know this thread is going to get locked down immidiately, but I've just returned from my fabulous two weeks at the Buenaventura, and I just couldn't wait to come back and share a little pool lounger observation. I went to the original thread, but it was locked. One morning, as I was enjoying c...

Well really, it's all just silly if you ask me. Either a chair is taken (and being used!), or it's not. Simple as that. And how the heck do you know who's towel is who's? Do they have their name on them?? Are they not all generic white towels that the resort hands out?? If I were to walk to the beac...

Hey there,

Where are you staying? Most resorts have affordable, if not free, wedding packages.
If you want zero bells and whistles and just someone to do a ceremony, I think this website may be what you're looking for:
