Wedding at Majahuitas

I am looking for information about Majahuitas (outside of Puerto Vallarta) as I'd like to have my wedding there in November 2006. Has anyone attended or had their wedding there? Or even if you have just visited I would love some to hear some insights. Thanks.

I'm going, but not until February. I will post a report when I get back. Have you read the reviews on tripadvisor? There a few honeymoon posts, but no weddings that I recall. I check it periodically and if I notice a wedding post I'll bring this to the top with the info.

Congrats on you engagement.

You could always contact the folks at Vallarta Lifestyles www.virtualvallarta.com. He's a good friend who has lived there for over 15 years and is very active in tourism and knows the property intimately... They will give you the straight scoop...

cheers,
Andrew

We just returned from 4 nights at Majahuitas last week. We were celebrating our 10th anniversary. We have not attended a wedding, but I would love to help if I can. We had a fabulous time. The service and the food are, simply put, incredible.(I am still dreaming of a vanilla and kahlua cake we had!) The food looks absolutely beautiful and tastes even better. The service is also great, Francisco was in charge while we were there and he is just awesome, always ready to do anything for you, but never hovering. We were able to see most of the casitas when we were there and they all looked very nice to me. They are nicely furnished and comfortable. You may find, however, that you are a little more nervous than you had expected in the dark, in the middle of the jungle with only three walls! All in all, it is a fabulous place and if you are looking for someplace remote, beautiful and unlike anywhere anyone has been, you have found it! All the while, you will feel pampered and well take care of. I can imagine that they would do a great job with a wedding. For each candlelight dinner on the beach, we noticed that they tried to make it special for each couple. Every night the tables were decorated differently. For our dinner, they actually WEAVED two palm branches together to make a beautiful backdrop. It was amazing! The food is absolutely top notch, everything was excellent and the plates were always just beautiful. Well, I hope I have helped a little. If you have some specific questions, I'll be glad to tell you more. We made our reservations directly with Richard James. He is a part owner and lives in California. I had some concerns about being able to be reached in an emergency as we have 4 daughters and I emailed him and he actually called me on the phone almost immediately. He was great and was able to answer all of my questions and concerns. If I were you, I would try to deal with him directly, if you can, but that's just my opinion (he may also be able to get you a better deal..shh.shh!) Also, if you haven't checked it you should checkout the adifferentworld.com website. You can practically take a walk through the property. I used it and found their pictures, desriptions and opinions to be quite reliable, at least in the case of Majauhuitas. Anyhow, if you post any other questions, I'll answer if I can. I hope this helps, I used to be a travel agent and love getting the inside scoop on stuff. Anyway, I wish you a wonderful wedding no matter what you decide! May God bless your marriage. Christy

Christy,

Wow! Thanks for the info on your trip. What you say has me even more excited about our trip to Majahuitas in February. We'll be there 5 nights. Which casita did you stay in? What was it like? Thanks again.

146 and counting...

We stayed in the jungle house. The front is open and you have a fabulous view of the beach. It sits off to one end of the beach, near the little stream and there are some trees and plants in front for privacy. You also have a curtain that you can pull across the room. There are two sets of chairs and a table and a hammock chair where you can enjoy your coffee and the view. There is also a little loft area with another bed. I think it is one of the smaller rooms, but we loved it for the view. It is also the closest to the beach, though all are just a short walk. From our conversatations at dinner, I gathered that it must get the best breezes(it was very hot when we were there). Several people, who were in other casitas, said that they had trouble sleeping because it was so hot. I really was only hot one night, most of the time we had a breeze from the ocean. You also have the tiniest little fan that you can run at night, it is a little loud though, you'll decide if you'd rather hear the waves or use the fan! Anyhow, the cliff house is also really beautiful, but as the name implies, it's way up on the hill. It's a long walk up a lot of steps, if that bothers you, but the view is worth it! They did say that they have trouble with mosquitos there as it is really surrounded by foiliage, but regardless, you will probably want to bring some spray anyhow. Definately get the massage, it is a great deal and just wonderful! Let me know if I can answer anything else, I am so excited for you!

Christy - Thanks so much for your informative response. It sounds like exactly what I'm looking for so I went ahead and booked the whole resort for our wedding. I think it will be a great experience, and one that our guests will remember for a lifetime!

Bill - Have a wonderful time in February. I'd love to hear more details when you get back!

- Jill
