Have you seen the reviews? They are all pretty highly recommended, so I'd go with whatever package works best for you.

Si Como No..is a good second alternative...makanda by teh Sea is ok...but they area kind of hard to deal with them...to many rules and regulations...to bad that Buena Vista is pricey fro you...that is a wonderfull area...and Costa Verde is a big Motel 6...great location but nothing else!!

Just buckle up and enjoy the ride in paradise!!

Judging by the pictures in the reviews, they are both the same place.

I would probably avoid that one just to avoid confusion (if there are really 2 of them).

Costa Verde & Coste Verde II are the same exact place/hotel, only difference is that CV II does not allow children in the building nor have a/c. I've stayed at CV a couple times and have enjoyed my stay always. Has one of the best views in MA and it doesn't cost $300+ a nite to stay their either. The comparison to a motel 6 is laughable & silly.

So Costa Verde would not be good for a wedding if it involved a three year old in the wedding?

Im afraid to chose Si Como No as the hotel because I heard its on the main road and it can be noisy.

What should I do?

Had you considered getting married on the beach in the park? Family could stay at any location in their price range and so could you.

Costa Verde would be fine with a 3 year old, as long as you don't book Costa Verde II as I said. CV II (one bldg) is reserved for adults only, all the rest of the buildings allow children.

Hello!

We were just in MA looking for a location for our '08 wedding. We looked at Costa Verde and met their wedding cooridinator, Carol (who was very nice and helpful) and I did not think it was ANYTHING close to a motel six. What a ridiculous thing to say!

She showed us the event center which is beautiful with the best view of MA and she also showed us different style rooms which were al very nice.

We are still trying to decide for sure where to settle on but there are so many choices, its difficult! I wish we would have looked at Si Como No but we ran out of time.

Keep the forum updated (or message me personally) as I would love to hear your decision!
