        Congrats Michelle! I need to see pics of this swim up suite. I think I need to get that and host my own party when I am there :)

        How was everything on 5th avenue? Was it quiet or were all the establishments open?

        Trentlaw you are gonna have one kick ass party! Can't wait to hear all about it!!!

          Here's a look out our sliding door!

          5th was quieter than what I'm used to, but everything was open! We didn't do any excursions (lame!), but from what I was told everything is back up and running. Coco Bongo is not open...not too happy about that. Schools opened back up on Monday.

            Thanks for the great review Michelle - much appreciated! Can I ask you average price/head at the Blue Parrott and what it included? Sounds like a possiblity, but I would need to budget for it. So glad your wedding was fantastic!

              one more question michelle - how long did you stay since you said it was too short? How long would you have liked to stay for?

                Allison - All we did at the Blue Parrot was pay for everyone's drinks on Friday night. Since we didn't have a rehearsal at the Royal we decided to do a "rehearsal party" at the BP instead of a dinner...half of us are staying at an all-inclusive anyway! We considered doing a private party at the BP with open bar, etc, but opted for just picking up the tab instead. My biggest concern was opening a tab at the bar. I wanted some control over what was put on our credit card. Anna (the concierge at the Royal) helped us figure that out after her call to the BP. When we arrived they had a big table reserved for our group. We had a waiter that was super nice and handled everything for us. I told him who was in our party and could order drinks (I've been to the BP several times, but have recently heard some bad news regarding overcharging for drinks). Overall we paid approx $25/per person for 20-ish people for 3+ hours of drinking, but most everyone was drinking beer.

                I hope that helps! As for staying longer, 8 days/7 nights was perfect. I do have to say I wanted some home cooked food though!

                Good luck with everything and let me know if you have anymore questions!

                  Hi All,

                  I am new to this forum and have been reading through this thread for the Royal Playa del Carmen. One of the earlier posts mentioned a loungy reception on the sand. Does anyone know if that is still an option? If so, is there a minimum number of guests required? I'm having a small wedding (30-40 guests) but it sounds so nice? Any info you have on the different reception choices for a party that size would be helpful.

                    We had 40-ish guests in the garden and loved it (see my earlier/lengthy post)! When I get my pictures I'll post them to the forum. Good luck!
