New Secrets opening in Mexico

Recommended Posts

There are two new secrets opening in Mexico this year, one in July and one in August.

I am very interested in the one opening in August ...

Do you think it would be ready in time for a November wedding?! Or is that risky?

May be a great question for a travel agent to either answer or get the answer for you. Personally I would think they would be fine since Secrets is a chain and all. I would guess/hope their WCs would come from other resorts and would know what they are doing.

I would say no just because every resort always has a bunch of problems when they first open and it takes a while for the service of the hotel to get to where it needs to be...I've never stayed at a secrets resort before so maybe they are different but I have stayed at 4 brand new resorts and it usually takes them about half a year.

 

Dont mean to discourage you but that is just my personal opinion...but definately talk to a travel agent

 

Good Luck!! :)

I believe I read on Trip Advisor that those Secrets Resorts were running behind schedule. I would not want to risk it ~ I don't think it's worth the stress! We originally wanted to get married at the new Excellence Playa Mujeres, which just opened in November. We decided against it for out June wedding, but we are going to honeymoon there after our wedding at the Hilton. Could something like that be a possibility for you?

I have heard that you can get cheaper rates at resorts that are just opening because they haven't had time to build up they're reputation ... that might be something to consider.

The rates are definately cheaper but it's because they haven't yet worked out all of the service issues, usually there are areas that are still being built, landscaping , if it's in, is not yet mature and all around the resort is not yet up to par.

My rule of thumb is to not book my clients at a resort that has been open less than 6 months- preferably a year! I would never consider booking a DW at one that has been open less than a year.

Secrets & Dreams resorts are some of my favorites along with Sandals! I am really excited about the many properties that they will be opening in the next couple of years but unless a client insisit I still will not book until they've been operational for at the minimum of 6 months.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
