    Is anyone familiar with the JW/Casa Magna Marriott in Cancun? The staff has been very helpful and professional in their correspondence but I would love to hear from someone who has actually been there!

    Thank you in advance for any insight to the property!

      hi! i just got back from my site visit and toured both marriott hotels and decided on the casa magna for my wedding. i have lots of pics if you are interested. they are both beautiful hotels and they are connected to each other although you cannot go to the other hotels pools, just restaurants. they are in a great location in the hotel zone. they share a wedding gazebo that is awesome!!! a very private space that is well maintained. the event and wedding coordinators are the same and work both hotels and are great. we stayed at the casa magna and the rooms are so comfortable! the only soft sheets and towels of all the hotels we checked out...and the bed is comfy! the rooms are smaller than some hotels. they filter and treat the water so you can drink from the tap. the jw pool is incredible! the casa magna is nice and has volley ball and a swim up bar. the jw is a lot more expensive than the casa magna. we saw 3 weddings while we were there and they were beautiful! although it rained for all of them!!! but, the back ups were in place and coordinators were great.
      also, they just built a new terminal at the airport and it is gorgeous. i looked at 7 hotels during my stay.
      please let me know if you have any more specific questions.
      when is your wedding and how many guests are you planning on?
      are you working with josefina? if so, you can tell her that i highly recommended her and the hotel. we met with her several times during our visit and she was great.

        What other resorts did you visit? I am getting married at the Moon Palace and was wondering if that was one of your stops.

                Here is a photo I took of the gazebo...I think I have more photos but sounds like you've already seen some by now. I'm having my ceremony there in March (and going for second site visit tomorrow actually)...it is beautiful. The location is very private, which is great.
