Presidente InterContinental Cozumel

Recommended Posts

Hello! I'm new here...this site is great! My fiance and I just got engaged recently and are thinking of getting married at the Presidente InterContinental Cozumel early next year. We have not yet been, but hoping to go for a site visit soon. Does anyone have any information on this resort? Or (better yet) has anyone been there or been married there? Any information is much appreciated!!!

omigosh.. that is exciting. I just got engaged 2 months ago and we chose to have our wedding at Presidente Intercontiental too. We were hoping to have your date, but they said it was booked. The only available Saturday was the 11th of April, but I heard that was the week of some huge holiday celebration. I love this network! OUr wedding will now take place on the 24th of April (Friday). Our wedding coordinator is Carolina. My fiance and I are planning to visit Cozumel in November to get a feel of the place. It's really hard to get any information or pictures online. I'm afraid that the sand is really brown ( from the pictures I've seen onilne). I'm super excited! I now have to choose a color scheme and so forth. How's your planning going?

Hi Aileen,

 

Congratulations on your engagement!!!! And congrats on picking your location too. My fiance and I visited InterContinental Cozumel and just fell in love with it. It's a good sized resort with a very intimate feel. The rooms were great...It was super relaxed and the service was amazing. We are so incredibly happy with our choice. We hope you are too!! And Carolina is the best. We love her! As for the sand, it is a little brown and packed-in but wasn't bad at all. We witnessed a small wedding while we were there, and it was quite beautiful.

 

Hope your planning is going well!

Hey there, I think that is a really great location for a wedding. I have not photographed a wedding there myself but tagged along with Juan Carlos Tapia when he shot a wedding at the Presidente. Juan Carlos belongs to BDW but since he is located in Cabo I am guessing he probably doesn't make it to this part of the forum, maybe you could pm him (and try to talk him into showing the photographs, I bet they are spectacular!)

 

best,

 

Elizabeth

thanks slw266! I'm going to Cozumel this Thursday to check the place out. I hope that it is as beautiful in person as it is in the pictures I've seen. I'm afraid that I may have chosen a wrong location for our wedding. I'm worried that perhaps I should have chosen a location in playa del carmen. You're absolutely right.. Carolina is the BEST! She's really sweet. I'm worried about my hair and makeup. Have u decided who's going to be doing that for you?

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
