Pros: Awesome pools/beach/restaurants/adult only section/staff
Cons: none really

My husband and I just got married at this resort March 24/12. What an amazing place! We had so much fun, were only there for a week and are already planning our next trip back. We had a total of 4 children with us plus 3 seniors, and other adult friends, some with food allergies. We found the food options incredible, no one went hungry thats for sure! We mostly ate at the International Buffet, which was amazing,,, always fresh with so many different choices. The drinks were good... there is  a really cool 24 hour snack bar in the middle that has everything including swings to sit on :) There is an eco area with Mayan ruins, a few cenotes which we swam and snorkled in. Most of the time we spent at the beach and pool, the kids Aqua park is so amazing! We went to the Kids Club one day too, to get out of the sun.


We travel alot and have been to the Mayan before, and other Carribean Resorts. We were extremely happy with the superb service we recieved from eveyone there. Our wedding coordinator Fernanda was incredible - she made our day perfect and added some extra unexpected decorations that we loved. We also had a room attendant German, who went waaay over and above to help us out. Martina at Front Desk was also super helpful. We never really felt the need to tip, like they expected it, (except the transfer bus driver from CUN airport) but we tipped a few times the people who gave us that extra exceptional service.


Our wedding photographer "Sweetfire Photography" did exceptional work - we are sooo happy with how everything went, the photo shoots, the TTD, the quick update on her facebook page, the preffesional and extremely creative photos she captured of the best day of our lives. I reccommend her to anyone!!


We have awesome memories that will last a lifetime.

Its great to hear you had such a great time there with all the negative reviews. I am planning a 2013 wedding and thinking of this resort but not sure with all the negative reviews. Alot of people are complaining about the bugs and wild animals, did you find that? Is there a free shuttle to 5th. Ave and how long is it? Did you have an outside reception? Can you post some pics of your wedding? I would love to see them.
