    I thought I had posted on the thread before but it must have been another one! Anyway here goes.....
    We chose the El Dorado Royale because.....
    1. We both love Mexico
    2. The Riviera Maya is a relatively short flight for all our guests
    3. EDR is an all inclusive
    4. Its an over 18 resort we have no children attending so this was good for us
    5. The resort has great reviews from brides and other travellers
    6. Food looks amazing, and all meals are a la carte (big plus!)
    7. There are tons of stuff to do in the Mayan from great beaches to awesome Mayan ruins!
    8. The resort is big enough that our guests can have their own vacation as well as coming to our wedding, but small enough that we can still see everyone whenever we want.
    Hope this helps?
    BTW- you do a great job with this stuff Jackie, really helpful!

            We decided to get married at Moon Palace for lots of the reasons that's been mentioned, including:

            1. They have great wedding packages.
            2. It's all-inclusive
            3. Good ratings from other brides
            4. Family friendly (we wanted our nieces and nephews to be able to come)
            5. They pretty much do it all
            6. Beautiful gazebo and horse drawn carraige
            7. We've never been there.
            8. You have access to all of the other Palace properties
            9. Tours and water sports are included
            10. It's not in the hotel zone (we didn't want to be with the Spring Breakers)
            11. also my Dad has seen the resort and loved it
            12. it had more of a contemporary feel vs cheesy
            13. 1-2 weddings a day (different spots you can get married including a church)
            14. the horse drawn carraige kind of swong my vote

              oh I loved the idea of the horse drawn carriage at moon palace!!! that was one of my other choices, but dreams was a smaller resort than moon palace and that's more of what I was looking for.

                I'm bumping this up because we've seen a lot of newbies asking questions about resorts here. This should help a lot, and for those newbies that have already picked a location, let us know why!!

                Thanks!

                  We chose Dreams Tulum because............

                  1. The resort looks beautiful.
                  2. We love Tulum
                  3. Our favorite restaurant in the world is just down the road in Tulum Pueblo
                  3. Its close to Akumal
                  4. The price is right
                  5. Its the furthest south from Cancun you can go and stay at an all-inclusive.
                  6. The ruins are a short bike ride away

                    Hi Anny,

                    I am looking at the package you have from Fiesta Americana Condesa CAncun and that is more affordable than what Dreams CAncun is offering. They have wedding packages at minimal price but some of the wedding details that are not part of the package can be quite high like speakers I believe are 200/hr! The DJ is 280/hr, dance floor 500/night. I thought AI should be more affordable coz guests are staying there for several days.

                    I am tempted to look at Fiesta Americana Condesa now. Do they have a wedding gazebo? I will look at their website.

                    Jessica

                      Jessica they don't have a gazebo.. you can do the ceremony at the beach or the garden and they put an arch with flowers there.. let me know if you need more info.. I'm probably going on a 2nd site visit next week.,
