One of the area's only boutique-style all-inclusives, this modern sugar-cube-like structure is stylishly decorated in creams and whites, and offers the perfect balance between luxury and comfort. The spacious suites, which fall into eight categories, are equipped with walk-in closets, rain showers, Jacuzzi tubs, stocked minibars, Bulgari bath products, and espresso machines; two-story beachfront casitas have the best views and come with a rooftop terrace and private plunge pool. The property also features three pools, four gourmet restaurants, a private marina, plus a 35,000-square-foot spa with a variety of hydrothermal therapies, including a crystal steam Hammam, Roman Caldarium, and Swedish sauna. A playground, kids' club, and pizzeria on the beach cater to families.

I want to preface this review by mentioning that we have a reservation for 7 rooms and a destination wedding at the Beloved for this September. We have not yet arrived so I cannot comment on the resort itself. I can, however, comment on the multiple frustrations my fiancé and I have had with the wedding coordinator at the resort, specifically Llenny Gomez. First of all, a quick email takes at least a full business day to get a response, if not longer.
It is very important to us to have a private dinner on the beach for us and our 12 guests. This seems reasonable because EVERY OTHER RESORT will do this. However, Llenny Gomez and Beloved claim they cannot accommodate a private reception for under 25 guests (which their website fails to mention) and they refuse to work with us to make this happen in any capacity. In part, we are guilty because multiple travel agents warned us that Beloved is notorious for poor wedding planning. We've read similar reviews on tripadvisor, and wanted to make our interaction well known to anyone else considering destination wedding here. It is interesting that Beloved often comments after-the-fact on tripadvisor reviews like these and their enthusiasm to correct the situation. So, why is it impossible for us to have a private beach reception, after our wedding, at Beloved?
