Hi! We had our wedding at Paradisus Playa del Carmen La Perla this past weekend and had such an epic, wonderful experience that we still can't believe everything turned out so perfectly for our big day! We chose this resort initially because a coworker got married there and had rave reviews about the resort, food and wedding experience and I'm so glad we went off of her recommendation. The resort itself is breathtakingly beautiful, clean, and quiet compared to spring-break style Cancun resorts, which we really liked. The food is amazinggg and the choices of restaurants make it easy to have a great meal every day of your stay. We worked with Araceli in the Romance department who coordinated everything for our wedding. Araceli emailed and called me early on to get an idea of what I wanted for our wedding and made the experience efficient and smooth. Ana Paola did the decor and was very responsive and communicative in helping us choose the flowers and decor we wanted, and the final result was exactly what I pictured (which I worried about since I was planning from the States!) Araceli was simply wonderful and so friendly- and on the day of the wedding, she and Jaime were highly organized and made sure that everything went smoothly and according to schedule. Our guests were so impressed by the resort itself - the luxury experience and the excellent food made their stay as enjoyable as possible. We had our ceremony on the Gabi bridge and the reception in one of the Palapas next to the pool area, and we couldn't have been happier with our choices. The ceremony and reception were absolutely beautiful, and the breezy weather made it pleasant (humidity wasn't too bad for May, but we got lucky because the day before was super hot and humid.) We chose Discomovil as our outside vendor for DJ services and they pulled everything off with professionalism and friendliness and even helped my husband pull off a surprise guitar/violin performance!
All in all I would highly highly recommend choosing this resort if you want the full, perfect, magical experience for your destination wedding. Our guests had a BLAST and the intimate setting of the resort helped them all get acquainted quickly. They all raved that this was one of the best if not best weddings they've been to and they're still having wedding withdrawal from all the fun they had. There is nothing we would have done differently and will cherish the memories from our wedding forever. Thank you so much to Araceli and Jaime in the Romance department, Vanessa in the YHI spa (for hair/makeup), Ana Paola for decor, Discomovil for DJ services and EVERYONE at the resort staff who was super friendly, kind, generous and provided excellent food, entertainment and service. We will definitely be back at the Paradisus Playa del Carmen La Perla for our anniversary trips!!!
