Wonderful Wedding Week

We stayed at Villa Celeste for our wedding week. We were a group of 10 adults, 1 child, and 2 babies. We had our wedding in the backyard of the villa overlooking the ocean and had Chef Arsenio set up a tent and a lovely reception for us afterwards. We had a wonderful week at the villa. The maids prepared our breakfasts and lunches, and we had Chef Arsenio prepare dinner every night. The cost was extremely reasonable for their services. We had budgeted for the week to feed our group and we didn't go over (even including our wedding dinner of surf and turf, wedding cheesecake, flowers, tent and chair rental, alcohol for the week, chef services, tips, etc!). The wedding was by far our most expensive day taking up a good chunk of that budget, but it was really great.
Everyone was also very helpful. After a coconut fell we decided we wanted to get some more, it only took us throwing a small rock at the tree before the security guard was escorting us down the street where a farmer climbed a tree and got us SO many coconuts. We decided we did not want to drive so we hired Franklyn to taxi us around for the week. He was great to work with and even helped us with our wedding paperwork at the Spanish speaking Office of Records. He also gave us a cell phone for us to use during the week, most excellent! The villa was so nice we canceled some of our planned outings so we could lounge at the pool. We did make the 15 minute walk up the beach to Natura Cabana for a spa day which was lovely. We also walked up the other length of beach to check out the local surf schools.
Everyone was in agreement that we made an excellent decision by choosing Villa Celeste and would gladly return. It was such a wonderful vacation for the whole family.
