Pros: Worry free! easy to communicate with and great MC
Cons: none :)
Our wedding was May 7, 2015 at the Moon Palace Toucan Terrace. After hearing the prices of Moon Palace's preferred vendor, JSAV, I knew I would have to look for an outside vendor. Turns out even after paying the (ridiculous) $800 outside vendor fee, I was able to get an extra hour of service, and probably a much better DJ for about the same price, if not a little cheaper. I was not approached with any problems of them getting allowance into the resort, or really with anything at all! They were there on time, and knew exactly where they needed to be to provide music for our cocktail hour as well as the reception. The DJ made all the proper announcements when they needed to be done, played all of the songs I requested, and really just did an overall great job! There was not one song that I did not like, and he had all of us on the dance floor all night! Communication with them was very prompt and easy, I sent them a song list very last minute and it was not a problem, I even told them right before our father/daughter and mother/daughter dances to cut them short (those dances feel like you are out there for hours if not!) he faded in and out the songs perfectly without hesitation. Overall they get an A+ 100!! I would absolutely recommend them to anyone!

Pros: Song selections, response time, kindness
We had our wedding at NOW Sapphire on May 5th.  There were 50 people at our wedding.  Ricardo was our DJ and he was amazing!  Response time was great, sometimes it would take just minutes to hear back from him (we never waited longer than a day for a response.)  We were unsure about set up so he brought along some uplights just in case, which I was so thankful for because we ended up using 4 of them. He seriously had EVERYBODY dancing from the first song to the last (and we even ended up extending him for another 30 minutes which he was happy to do!)  During and after the wedding I had multiple guests come up to me telling me that he was "the best DJ I've ever heard at a wedding before."  I truly believe that his DJing skills and song selections helped make my wedding the best night of my life.  Everybody loved Ricardo!

Pros: Great music! Had every one up dancing!
Cons: Cold fireworks were a bit delayed for our entrance (not a major deal)
We had our wedding in the bamboo room at the Now Jade on May 01. We had 35 guests. I dealt with Jimmy via email and was very impressed with his response time. I would send an email and sometimes get a response within minutes! 1 week before the wedding we sent a simple outline of our reception timeline and a few songs we wanted to hear. I sent a few pictures of the color of uplighting I was looking for. We also purchased the cold fireworks. Having 35 guests, we were nervous not everyone would get out on the dance floor but was shocked when the DJ had EVERYONE dancing all night long. They played so many good songs all night long that catered to all of our different age groups! I am so happy we decided to hire a DJ and would highly recommend DJ Disco Movil!!! I was very impressed with the service!

Pros: Lighting, Music, Ambiance, Price, Fireworks, Mc'ing
Cons: Nothing!

Pros: Excellent communication, Mix of music, everything!
Cons: NONE
Ricardo and his team are truly amazing. I knew I wanted Disco Movil as soon as I started planning our wedding over a year in advance from all the wonderful reviews I have read on here. I booked him right away.From the very beginning Ricardo was so easy to work with. Having a destination wedding can be stressful and he made it such an ease. We went for the LED dance floor which was pricey but worth every single dollar. No one literally left the dance floor all night long just when you think you are going to sit down and have a break another great song comes on so there was no time to sit. We had a mix of young and old people at our wedding and he did a great mix to cater to everyone. My uncle who is a huge music fan said it was the best wedding he has ever been to because the music and no one sat down. That is a huge compliment from him. The LED dance floor is a MUST! Ricardo pronounced all the difficult names correctly and had the reception move along with such flow from introductions to dinner music to speeches and first dances there was no complaints. We didn't specify certain dinner music but his choices were perfect. He does a great job in reading the crowd and knowing exactly what to play next. He played all the requests from the crowd which wasn't many as the music was just that good. It was sad when it all ended I wish we could of had him for another hour time went way to fast. If you are hesitating or not sure on your DJ choice - stop and get Disco Movil you really won't regret it. I wish we could have another wedding just to have him again!
Pros: Experienced, Professional, Great Communication, Can do House Music, Balanced music for the entire crowd. Mature.
Cons: Absolutely none
Let me first state that aside from my career as a Cosmetic Dentist in NYC, I am also a house music DJ that regularly performs in NYC, LA, and internationally. I have performed in front of crowds of thousands, and most of the guests at my wedding are part of the music industry. I say that not to sound arrogant, but instead to give perspective of how important having a great DJ at our wedding was.    My wife Dara and I did not want to have the typical wedding music that everyone "puts up with" at every wedding they go to. We wanted something that was going to be fun, unique, and reflective of who we are. We are not the macarena/chicken dance type of people. We sent out emails to multiple DJ's, and actually flew down to Playa del Carmen to meet with a few of them. With Ricardo you will not have to do that because he is extremely professional and is very amenable to discussing things via skype or email, but for us, we wanted to go the extra mile. When we met Ricardo, we immediately knew we had found the right person. Ricardo is fluent in English (though we both speak Spanish), he is friendly, and he is a gentleman. He is not some kid that decided he wanted to do weddings after buying a laptop, he is a true professional DJ. He has experience performing in nightclubs (something that was very important to us), and he and I have even shared the stage with some of the same artists (which was very important to me). Ricardo was happy to provide us with a "Preview" mix that he sent us via email with some of the music we requested. He never said no to anything we wanted, and most important during that first meeting, I remember him saying, "I am excited, I WANT TO DO YOUR WEDDING". Where some of the other DJ's were intimidated, he was not.    Our wedding was a combination of Latin (Colombian) and Jewish families. Ricardo knew exactly how to balance the music so that we could hear some Salsa/Merengue/Cumbia and at the same time the American side of the families were also very happy. The cocktail hour and dinner hours were great, and the music he played reminded us of being in the south of France or on South Beach. Very classy and elegant. There was never a dull moment on the dancefloor, and everyone was impressed by him. One other thing that meant the world to me, was that he was gracious enough to allow me to play a few songs on his equipment (though my wife wanted to kill me for doing so lol). Ricardo also advised us on lighting, and provided us with a great light up LED dance floor that looked great and not cheesy in any way.   I recommend Ricardo and Discomovil with no hesitation and wholeheartedly. Trust me, he will make the musical part of your wedding great, and you will have nothing to worry about except for how to keep dancing.

Cons: None!
From the very first communication with Ricardo I knew I was going to be in good hands. He always responded immediately and was super easy to work with. We had a lot of specific songs that we wanted to hear during our cocktail hour and reception, and he was great at taking the list and letting it roll! He also took requests from guests during the reception and worked them into our other songs perfectly! Everything was so wonderful with the Disco Movil team from beginning to end, I would hire them again in a heartbeat!

Pros: Professional, fast, friendly, good at what they do.
Cons: None
I wasn't thinking I wanted a DJ until a few weeks before my wedding, I thought a speaker and an Ipod would be fine.  I'm glad I changed my mind.  Disco Movil was very fast in response to my inquiry, the price was reasonable and they did a great job!  I hired them to play for 4 hours, during my cocktail hour and reception.  I didn't put a lot of restrictions on them with a must play or do not play list.  I wanted them to be free to do what they do best.  My first dance song was less known and when I searched their database online they didn't have it, so I just emailed them the song and it was perfect.  They were great at keeping the music at the right sound level and read the mood of the crowd.  They had my guests dancing all night!  Overall it was a great experience!!!

Pros: Communication, music, fun, responsive
Ricardo & Disco Movil DJs had awesome communication from day 1.  Anytime we asked questions or needed help, they responded almost immediately.  They helped us determine what equipment, lighting, etc. we would need for a night reception on the beach.  We gave him our list of music and asked for any suggestions...we had people dancing during dinner and they NEVER stopped.  It was an amazing party and celebration and they played a huge part in making it a success.  Can we do it all again?!  They were wonderful - highly recommend!

Pros: Ease of communication, has a huge music database
Cons: None!
All of our vendors were fantastic, but since music is so important to my husband and me, we were especially happy that we made the decision to go with Discomovil.  From my first email communication with Ricardo, I was impressed.  We communicated multiple times before the wedding and Ricardo responded almost instantaneously.  We were nervous about hiring someone we didn’t know so we asked Ricardo for a sample of his 90s hip-hop mixing.  Clearly, the sample didn’t best reflect his talent, because at our wedding, he was AMAZING.  We hired Disco Movil for both our welcome party and wedding reception.  At the welcome party, Ricardo and his crew played background music during the dinner, displayed our slideshow on their projection screen, provided the audio for our guests who gave speeches and performed, and then served as a karaoke DJ!  He had practically every song imaginable to sing, and the lyrics were displayed on the projection screen.  It was a fantastic night.    As part of the planning, Disco Movil is very organized and helpful.  Ricardo sent me a model run-of-show schedule for the wedding day and wedding week which I gave to our wedding coordinators, photographer, and weding party.  For the music playlist,  Discomovil has a great website where you enter all the songs you’d like to be played for each of your events.  They have a massive database, but if there are songs that aren’t in their database, you can enter the song information and they will acquire the song for you.  Disco Movil stuck to our playlists since we gave them a lot of songs.  This was very helpful.  On the day of our events, Ricardo and his crew came early to coordinate with the hotel staff setting up our locations.  But the key to being a great DJ is knowing how to keep people on the dance floor all night.  Ricardo adjusted the music accordingly when the crowd didn’t respond well to one of our songs.  The momentum kept increasing till the end of the night.  Ricardo also served as our emcee (MC) and stuck to our script to make the necessary announcements.  He did a great job.  We didn’t want the party to stop at the set end time, but Ricardo agreed to stay and kept the party going for as long as the hotel would allow us  :)   Thank you Discomovil for making a spectacular weekend!

Pros: Perfectly gauged our crowd and kept everyone dancing!
Cons: None
We chose DJ Disco Movil (Ricardo) for our January 29, 2015 wedding at Now Jade in Riviera Maya based on the reviews on this site.  He exceeded my expectations and gave us an unforgettable night.  He was so responsive to my email inquiries and worked with me on our "must play" list.  The cold fireworks were an absolute hit, and Ricardo expertly gauged our crowd to keep everyone on the dance floor.   We threw in an unplanned bouquet toss and Ricardo was quick to cue up "Single Ladies" for the toss.  All in all, a great night with great music for our group.  I would highly recommend Ricardo for any event.  His rates are affordable and he is a professional.  In fact, it was more economical to hire Ricardo for five hours and pay the outside vendor free ($350 plus tax at Now Jade), then to hire the resort dj. We made the right choice.

Pros: Accomodates everything.. excellent communication.. good at reading the crowd.. awesome!!
Cons: Nothing
This DJ is amazing. I read a lot of reviews before deciding to go with him and we are so happy we did. We just got married on January 22nd in Playa Del Carmen at the Barcelo and the dance floor was never empty. He was so accommodating and also answers emails within minutes which is so refreshing after dealing with some of the other vendors we chose. He played all the songs we wanted him to play when we wanted him to play them and even was messaging me in the morning before the wedding when I was sending him our slideshow as I was doing some last minute editing. We even got some cold fireworks and they were perfectly timed.. our guests loved it!!  So great no complaints!! Thanks RIcardo!

Pros: Everything
Cons: Nothing
We hired Ricardo for our wedding reception last Wednesday & he was amazing!!! I've been to my fair share of weddings (including being a bridesmaid 14 times), and can spot a good or a bad dj immediately, and Ricardo is hands down the BEST!!!

Every email I sent regarding the wedding reception, he responded to immediately, communicated openly with us, had all of the songs I wanted played, and encouraged our involvement as far as what we wanted to hear. He gave us the choice for payment, and wanted to do whatever was easiest for us, we could pre pay via PayPal, or at the time of the reception (we chose to pre pay to avoid travelling with the additional money).

We had our speeches during the dance, and in between we had quick dance breaks, to which Ricardo did not miss a beat.....even when our emcee mid speech shouted "Hit it, Ricardo!". (Which several people shouted when they needed a moment to compose themselves during the speeches, and Ricardo happily accommodated).

He had EVERYONE dancing all night long, and played songs that kept everyone on the dance floor.....when the night ended everyone raved about what an awesome dj he is and how they haven't danced that much in ages!!

He is fabulous and will go above and beyond to exceed all of your expectations!!! :)

Pros: Everything!! Great music! Very accommodating!
Cons: None!
After reading a bunch of these reviews we decided to hire DJ DiscoMovil. We knew that with our rowdy group of 80 people that we wanted to extend our reception two hours and the pricing was incredibly reasonable to do this. All communication prior to the wedding was very prompt, usually within a couple hours! We paid our remaining balance prior to leaving for Mexico so we would have one less payment to worry about on the wedding day. Payment through PayPal is super easy.

On the wedding day, we had forgotten to choose entrance songs, my husband chose them literally minutes before walking in, and everything was perfect! I can honestly say that I never talked to the DJ, but he did a fantastic job and kept every single person in our group dancing until the very last song! He played many of the guests requests as well.

This was a great addition to our party and we are so happy with the outcome!

Pros: Communication, Price, Great job playing music!
Cons: none
My husband and I were married at Now Jade in July of 2014. We need from the start that we had to have a DJ at our reception. Although we only had about 30 people at the wedding including us, music was important. I found Disco Movil on best destination wedding after reading reviews of Now Jade Weddings. I reached out to Ricardo at Disco Movil and everything went smoothly. I needed to find a DJ that would be willing to play a mix of music. My husband is Latino and I am Polish and we needed to have a mix of Latin, Polish and Dance music. Disco Movil did a great job. I was able to provide the Polish songs i wanted played to Disco Movil via Dropbox. We also were able to create a playlist on the discomovil website and even listen to clips of potential songs.    We were able to add some fake fireworks for our entrance that were provided by discomovil. Its cheesy but everyone loved the entrance! The lighting they provided was perfect.   Ricardo did a great job introducing the bridal party and family and did a great job with the pronunciations (he asked to have them written down).    Everyone had a great time and danced non stop. I have to say that he stuck to my list although at some point there was a song requested that I did not approve. We told him to change it and it was immediately fixed.   I knocked off a half a start because I had provided specific songs I wanted for the bouquet toss, bridal entrance and cake cutting. Those songs were not followed. In the end it wasn't a big deal.   I highly recomend.

Pros: Super responsive, professional, great selection!
Cons: Not a thing!
Ricardo and his team Well EXCEEDED expectations. His rates with our outside vendor fee still was cheaper than the resort! Plus we could have cold fireworks and uplighting. We used his services 10.16.14 at Now Jade!

Ricardo was super responsive and very professional, he was easy going and a true pleasure to deal with.

Everyone was dancing all night! He played the most perfect music for our group. He took requests and the next day the most common thing I heard was "that is the best dance party I've been to in ages"

Pros: Responsiveness, Professionalism, Flexibility, Music Selection, Lighting
Cons: None
Ricardo and his team from Disco Movil did a wonderful job as the DJ for our wedding on 10/10 in Playa Del Carmen. To start he was very responsive through all correspondences as he had answers to our questions within minutes of us hitting the send button. We provided a general timeline and a spreadsheet which included "do not play", "try to play", and "must play" song selections. Ricardo responded letting us know he liked our selection and that they would acquire any songs they did not already have in their database. Even though we've never met them in person, we felt very comfortable with Ricardo and team prior to landing in Mexico.   Once in Mexico we needed to reach out and see if Disco Movil was available for a last minute vendor meeting on-site at our resort. Ricardo responded quickly to the request and stated "no problem". He was on-site the very next day to hash out last minute details. At the actual wedding/reception Ricardo and team did a wonderful job with the playlist we requested (it contained a lot of hip hop songs i.e. Kid Ink, Chris Brown, Drake,Ty Dolla $ign, etc). We had guests on the dance floor the entire night. In addition to a packed dance floor we sprung a last minute request on Ricardo as we wanted to extend the reception by an additional hour. Again, this was "not a problem" for Ricardo and team as they were very flexible and accommodating.    We cannot say enough good things about Ricardo and his team and would HIGHLY recommend them as a DJ for your wedding. If you are having a wedding in the Cancun area, Disco Movil should be your DJ. Thank you again, Ricardo! - Faye & Chris :)

Pros: Cold Fireworks, Lighting, Great selection of music, professionalism
Ricardo from Discomovil is amazing. He's very professional and communicates quickly through email. We emailed him our wedding schedule along with songs we liked and he followed it completely. We even asked him to fade out the music at a certain time to our father daughter, mother son and first dance and he did it perfectly. He had our wedding on their feet dancing for 2 hours straight and he played every song our guests requested. I cannot say enough great things about Discomovil. My favorite part were the cold fireworks!! I highly recommend everyone use Discomovil for their wedding or event!!

Disco Movil lives up to their perfect reputation! Although we booked on short notice, they were been quick and friendly with email responses and in perfect English too. Paypal payments were easy and convenient. The database has every song song imaginable, so we weren't worried about the music choices.    Once our reception began, our guest were dancing all night long (Even on the hot and humid July evening). EVERYONE of all ages loved the music! It was such a relief to not worry about the music for our wedding, Disco Movil did and outstanding job taking care of it all!

Pros: Communication prior to wedding, payment through PayPal, friendly, fun, great website and song choices, reasonable pricing, lighting, reliable
My husband and I were married at the Now Sapphire on July 5, 2014. We are SO happy that we chose Disco Movil to DJ our wedding reception. The communication prior to the wedding was simple and extremely helpful! I loved their website too! I was able to browse, select, and add notes to our song selections for the cocktail hour, dinner, and reception. We were also able to pay with PayPal which was awesome! Our reception was suppose to end at 11:00 but our whole group (about 45 people) are dancing machines! We did not want the party to stop....so we added an hour to the reception and Disco Movil were accommodating and stayed and kept the party going!! We loved everything about our wedding night but the DJ was one of our very favorites! Disco Movil made our night:) I would recommend them to anyone having a destination wedding in the area!!

Pros: Professional, Quick response to email, Excellent sound quality
Cons: None
My husband and I are extremely happy we picked Ricardo to be our DJ. He is extremely nice to work with. Planning a wedding abroad is not easy but Ricardo definitely made it easier with his prompt response to emails. Prior to our wedding he spent so much time reviewing the order of music with my husband without any complaint. We wanted to mostly play traditional music (Tigrinya) for our wedding and mix in some English songs as well. He worked very proficiently with the order of events and music we gave him. And knew exactly when to play each song without any prompting, given that it was Tigrinya songs we were extremely impressed. The transition of the songs was excellent. The sound quality was great and audible at our beach outdoor wedding. We are so grateful to Ricardo and would absolutely recommend him to anyone. Trust me you will not be disappointed!! :) Thank you Ricardo!!

Pros: So talented! friendly and professional
Cons: zero
I hired Ricardo from Disco Movil to rock up my reception dance floor, I was fascinated about how great he is playing music, we played all we asked for and manage the night perfectly, I am thankful because we had our dream wedding and Ricardo was part of it.   I have to remark that planning a wedding from the distance is a hard task but finding and working with Ricardo was easy and pleasant.   I love Disco Movil!!   Thank you Ricardo!!

Pros: very accommodating, want to make your night special
Cons: didn't take control of reception events
Disco Movil was great to work with. They were really awesome at replying to all my emails and questions. We wanted a more unique first dance song and so they were able to make us a mix before the wedding for us to listen to and approve. I thought that was such a great touch, we could really make sure our first dance together was memorable!   During the reception they played all the music I had wanted and had picked out on their website. The light up dance floor was AMAZING, everyone loved it. It might be expensive but I would say it's worth every penny. The pictures from our reception are so cool because of that floor too! They even let one of the groomsmen hook his Iphone up to their equipment to play songs they didn't have that we wanted played. They are very accommodating. The ONLY reason I gave them less stars is because I really think it would have been nice if they took control of the "events" for us. We had to tell them when we were ready for the speeches, when we wanted the dancing to start, when we were going to cut the cake...I understand why they may leave that up to the bride and groom, but it was a lot to think about when I was just trying to enjoy the night. It was hard for me to remember everything too! We ended up cutting the cake at the last minute because we forgot about it. So that would be my only complaint. Otherwise we were very happy with them and I'm sure you will be too!

Pros: Music database, easy to get ahold of, talented DJ, dance floor
Ricardo was so nice to work with!! He played great music and really knows how to make everything flow smoothly. I love that there is a music database on the website which allows you to pick songs you want to be played at the wedding. Some of my guests requested songs and he was more than happy to play them, which I thought was great! The dance floor was so fun! All the guests loved it! I also got the wash lights, which I am glad I did because it helped with lighting when my guests took pictures. Everything was set up beautifully, sound quality was great and he knew what type of music to play at different parts of the night. He is also very easy to contact and I could tell he really wanted to make our wedding perfect! Some brides have suggested using their own iPod to play music, but I highly suggest paying a little extra to get a DJ. This is your time to have fun and relax and not worry about music. I am very satisfied with the service and wish I could do it all over again!!
Pros: Really understands your taste in music with a few examples. Very professional. Great dance floor and set-up. Replies to e-mails very quickly.
Cons: None.
I have NOTHING but amazing things to say about Disco Movil.  Ricardo was the DJ at my wedding on May 6, 2014 at Barcelo Maya Palace Deluxe and he was everything I hoped for, but even better.  They brought their largest light-up dance floor - perfect size for my wedding party of 87 guests.  The guests raved about how gorgeous the dance floor looked on the beach for my reception... he used the perfect lighting for our first dance, created such a romantic moment.  For our grand entrance, I told Ricardo which song to use, but didn't give him details on how to mix it - but he did it perfectly.... cut the chorus to begin at just the right moment as we entered, and fired the fireworks... read my mind, but did even better!!! Ricardo was my MC and was always on the ball, perfectly clear, and kept the night moving.  He played classic slow songs during dinner (even inspired my friends to do a group sing-along) and amazing dance music when we started to dance.  I am pretty detail oriented - I gave him a list of songs I wanted played (their application on their website for you to create your own playlist is amazing), probably a couple hours worth.... he played them all, and then COMPLETELY understood my taste in music... ran with it, for all the other dinner and dance song choices he added in, and it was all perfect.    My friends are party animals, we go out to clubs a lot in Toronto, we party in Vegas and Miami, we love our EDM and I honestly wasn't sure if music would be the same in Mexico.  But from the minute we opened up the dance floor at 9 pm until 1 am... THE FLOOR WAS NEVER EMPTY.  Even the parents came to dance!  My friends usually attack the bar, but most of the night the bar looked empty... (partly bc the waiters were bringing the liquor in squirt bottles to the dance floor), but mainly because every time we tried to leave for drinks, another amazing song would come on!  All week after the wedding everyone was raving about the music, they were wondering if I stole the DJ from our favourite club in Toronto... he cut the songs at just the right lengths, gaged how we were feeling, slowed the songs down to end the night with the best choice of songs.... Ricardo, I honestly cant thank you enough.  I wish I had more time to tell you how awesome you were and I'm glad I have the opportunity to do it here... my only regret is that because I was so busy dancing I didn't get to take a photo with you!  Oh and my friends all have the same complaint the next day - their knees hurt from dancing so much.  So thank you so much Ricardo and your team.... I really can't thank you enough.  These guys are not your typical wedding DJ's - they are the real deal.
