Back from Cancun Site Inspections - Reviews Attached

Recommended Posts

I'm still pretty new here, but I have gotten so much help from everyone and I'd like to return the favor! I just returned from a site inspection trip in Cancun. I have attached the questionnaire we used when meeting with the Wedding Coordinators, and also a quick pro/con list of each site. (See tab 2 in the document.)

 

We were searching for a location that could accomodate a wedding for 100 people. We also wanted something that would be easy for our guests to get to, and a place where they would feel comfortable.

 

We ended up touring the Hyatt Cancun Caribe, Hilton Cancun Golf & Spa Resort, Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort, Casa Magna Marriott, JW Marriott, and Le Meridien Cancun Resort & Spa.

 

We were probably looking for different things than most people (for example, we're planning to get married during football season, and with many football fans in attendance, a sports bar was imperative to us). I'm guessing most people wouldn't care about that. :)

 

So, our review may not apply at all for what you're looking for, but I know a lot of people don't get the chance for a site visit, so I thought I'd post this just in case it helps someone.

 

Overall, even if you don't get a site visit, I think you'll be fine wherever you go. They have truly made a business out of this, and while we liked some resorts more than others, I think we'd be fine anywhere. It really just depends on what you're looking for.

 

I have pictures of each place as well and I will try to post them in this thread this evening.

 

If you have any other questions about the sites we visited, just let me know! We asked a million questions!

While I'm not getting married in Cancun, I love that you posted this. This was a great idea & a great way to narrow down the choices that you had. Great job!

Thanks!!

 

Oh, and someone else helped me come up with the questions. I posted about that awhile ago and someone gave me their sample questions, but I can't remember who it was!!

 

Pictures still to come...

Thanks for the review! Im not getting married in Mexico but its kinda nice to read your review in case I ever go back. When I went to cancun I stayed at the Le Meridian. The vacation was terrible since it stormed the whole time but the staff there was very nice and they had some type of indoor activity everyday for us.

Here is a link to the pictures: Picasa Web Albums - S - Cancun Site I...

 

Barefoot - I really can't say enough about how nice the staff at Le Meridien was. Also at the Marriott. Both staffs there were incredibly friendly. I just can't believe Le Meridien has lost their entire beach!! The waves literally crash right into the hotel! We stayed at the Hyatt during our visit, and their staff was ridiculous. (And I'm speaking mostly of the waitstaff/front desk areas here. They were unorganized and not helpful. Took us almost an hour to check out!)

 

Also, when looking at the pictures, I remembered one more thing I forgot to put on the spreadsheet. 1 more "con" about the Hilton is the carpet in the ballroom. It's pretty garish, but we're thinking it wouldn't be as noticeable in the evening with the lights dimmed.

 

Again - these reviews are just opinions and we were looking for some very specific things. So, just because we didn't like something, it doesn't mean you won't love it! I think there are people who have loved getting married at all of these places, so I really don't think you can go wrong! :)

    • I’m getting married next May at the Azul Sensatori  in Cancun, I believe they have a hotel specific DJ. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on that versus spending money for an outside vendor and if so any recommendations on a good DJ in that area? Thanks for the help.
    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
