    Hi-
    I am new to this thread and am excited to be here because The Paradisus Rivera is becoming our #1 location for our wedding in Nov. 2008. All of your posts have been SO helpful. I am still looking at the Royal Porto Real too. Did any of you decide between these two? Look forward to chatting with you all soon!
    Katy

    Hi Katy!!! Welcome to the party!

    I looked at Porto Real, but opted for the Paradisus. I just never got the same feel of luxury, secluded, etc., that I didn with the Paradisus. That, and the WC there just never got back to me in a timely fashion.

    More news on the DJ front. Elisa confirmed that the only fees are those charged by Swank - so no outside vendor fee. YAY!!!

    That being said, I spoke with her - I didn't get it in writing, so I'd suggest sending her an e-mail to make sure the same holds for you.

      Thanks so much. I agree the privacy I have seen at the Paradisus is one of the most luxurious things. Thanks!

      One more update on the DJ front. I received an e-mail from Elisa (after I spoke with her - she's good that way - everything in writing):

      My question:

      "Elisa: I sent the note below to Victor at Swank today. Does the Paradisus have any charges other than those listed in the contract with Swank that we would need to pay in order to use an outside DJ?"

      Her reply:
      "It was a pleasure to talk to you over the phone, there is no extra charge involved. Have a nice day!"

      So, there we go - and saving $600 - $1,200 if you were going to have to pay Swank for lighting. Woo hoo!

        Katy welcome to the forum! We fell in love with the Paradisus when we saw it for the same reasons Becks mentioned - secluded and classy - my type of wedding resort!

        Becks - SOoo glad to hear about Carlos Mania - guess I should email Perla and get that in writing too before we try and make a deal. Glad to hear that this is working out - would it be OK if I referenced your dealings wiht him and the resort in my email?

        Of course!! Maybe we should have worked out some sort of multiple booking discount...

          Can you please give me some advice of the best person/contact information to reach out to at the Paradisus to check date availablitity? I hoping that you can and as soon as I get it, I'll reach out to them. We are looking at early November. I'll let you know once I get a date! This is SO exciting! Many thanks!

            I just emailed him to ask about the insurance (assuming it's not a one time thing!)

            I also emailed Perla to confirm about the fees - she has been somewhat tardy on her responses so we'll see..

            What are you doing about centrepieces? Did you decide or is that part of the site visit?

            Hi Katy:

            Here are the two e-mail addresses:

            Elisa Amora Hernandez: romance.paradisus.riviera.cancun@solmelia.com
            Perla Cervantes: guest.paradisus.riviera.cancun@solmelia.com

            Frankly, though, if you want it set and settled right away, call. It's ALWAYS faster. +52 998.872.83.83 ext. 8046. This is Elisa's number, and goes to the automated system at the hotel. As soon as they pick up just dial 8046. I usually find it easiest to reach her between 10:30 and 11:30 AM Central time.
