          I've been to the Riviera Maya for several years in a row, and just last April my sister got married at Ana y Jose in Tulum. It was fabulous! They were so helpful and accomodating, and things went so smoothly! She had a pretty decent wedding turnout, too, about 90 people. Although not everyone could stay right there at the hotel, she did get to have close family and friends right there at the hotel, and there is a new hotel right next door called Zulum. And my sister had a list of a lot of different places to stay within a couple of (beach) blocks.

          The reason why I love this place is for it uniqueness and its solitude. You won't have a million people on the beach gawking at your wedding vows and you pretty much have the beach all to yourselves. It is also very beautiful, and seems to fit right in nature (although the accomodations are very nice, and not rustic at all). It has a very Shangri-La feel with a much better beach (we were in Playa in December and the beach has eroded a lot around there) and far less people.

          Only drawback I guess is that Tulum town is not as hip as downtown Playa, but guests were having so much fun with each other that it didn't matter.

          Good luck!

            Another unique place closer to Playa is Paraiso De La Bonita. Very boutique and has only 90 suites. It is such a beautiful resort and the suites are georgeous! It is adults only - so if you have kids coming it probably wouldn't work unless you have enough guests to take over the property!

              thanks so much for your suggestions! I know all the big resorts are beautiful, but for some reason I am drawn to the smaller, more uniqe resorts. So, these are great suggestions, and if there are any others, let me know! I love this forum!

                    THere are a lot of very nice hotels in the area, that can accomodate your guests. it also depends on if you would like an all inclusive or prefer a non all inclusive, such as Shangri La. It is definitely a very nice hotel and a shame that it is closen.
                    If you are not able to find a hotel that suits your wishes for your dream wedding, you can also look into the options to do your wedding and reception outside of the hotel you are staying at. There are some very pretty and more secluded beaches available in Playacar and the Riviera Maya that are perfect for a wedding.

                    Good luck with the search!
