    Hi everyone - I am new and looking for ideas! I am going on a scouting trip next week to Cancun. We are looking at the Marriotts and a couple of other places for the ceremony and reception. I don't have any ideas yet on a welcome/rehearsal dinner. We will likely have about 100-120 guests. Is anyone planning a welcome dinner in the Cancun area for a big group? I'd love to get your thoughts. Thanks!!

        The marriott is gorgeous!!!! I loved the gazebo, I'm having my religious ceremony there.. I posted some pics in my review thread..

        I don't think I'll have a welcome dinner since I have more than 200 guests.. If I have it'll be a pay yourself dinner..

          Thanks Anny - I saw your pictures of the Marriott gazebo, they are amazing! We are discussing dates with them right now to see if they have availability for winter 2008.

            Yes, I think we'll check out everything within walking distance of the Casa Magna Marriott (including the JW)...I will definitely pass on anything useful when I get back.

              We are also looking for maybe a few restaurants to have a "meeting" place outside of the resort. We and all 40 of our guests are staying at Dreams Cancun and I will be very interested to see what you think when you get back from your site visit! Make sure you let us know when you get back!

                Did you want to stick to Cancun for the welcome dinner or are you open to going outside of Cancun (Riviera Maya/Play del Carmen area)?

                  Good question. I guess I'd like to stick to the Cancun area because I think we'll need to transport our guests if it's not in walking distance, and the farther we go, probably the more expensive. I would love ideally to find something in the Hotel Zone that is walkable or an easy bus ride. I imagine it would be harder to find a restaurant in the center of Cancun that can accommodate a big group and microphones for speeches, etc., though that would probably be a lot of fun if we could.

                    I'm sure when you visit the hotel zone that you'd be able to find restaurants that can accomodate your party. Also, try talking to the coordinator at the resort you're staying. They can probably offer you plenty of good suggestions. Good luck!
