ROYAL PLAYA DEL CARMEN BRIDES: were kids allowed for the day? ...and other questions

Recommended Posts

I had the same issue with the hotel and was reluctant to book at The Royal because of this rule. Some of the other hotels allowed to have semi private functions at the hotel restaurants and with only a $10-15 pp service fee. The Royal doesn't allow to do this, once you book a big group it is considered a "private" event and then you choose your location and pay a per person fee (like $40-$60pp depending on what you chose for the menu). I assume the reason is because they do 2-3 weddings most days of the week and if they constantly were booking the restaurants for the weddings their regular hotel guests wouldn't have a place to eat, I am sure when we are there we will understand but it is frustrating during the planning process since all our guests technically have paid for all their meals.

We opted to take our rehearsal out of the hotel since we would be paying so much pp we thought we'd get everyone out for the night and we are holding ours at The Blue Parrot. They do a fire show every night so we thought it would be a fun event to go to and do all the wedding oriented things we are doing prior to the show and then have their fire show wrap up the night. Not sure when your wedding is but I can keep you in the loop as to how it all ends up.

Let me know if you have other questions.

I have read that other brides have been able to sit large parties without the reservation requirement (but they also tipped the hostess well for the trouble). It's a gamble though. There has to be enough room for everyone to sit together. We are doing a welcome dinner and maybe a catamaran tour instead of the rehearsal dinner. And we are taking the gamble that we will all be able to sit with each other in one of the Royal Restaurants. I also have a very aggressive bridesmaid who plans on stalking the restaurant for me to ensure that we all sit together. smile72.gif

Question,

 

If I choose a package, say the classic wedding package...it states that it is for "up to 12 guests"...does this include food for those 12 guests and you just pay per head for the rest?

Unless you package specifically states that any food is covered, you will have to pay a fee per person (up to 12 guests), and an additional fee per person over your limit.

On average, Reception dinners can be anywhere from $40 - $60 per Royal guest (must be staying at the hotel). If they are staying at the sister hotel, the Gran Real(?), it is something like $50 - $70 and a bit more if they are staying off-site altogether.

The same goes for "cocktail hour"...you would pay $25 per person up to your limit and then $25+fee for anyone over the limited amount.

If you are hiring outside photographers or other individuals who will be with you over your reception time, you usually have to allot for their meal as well.

Hope this helps.

Wow - this thread hit 100 pages!! I remember when Stephanie started this post over a year ago! This has SAVED my life - i love this thread so much!!!

Did anyone know that the Royal's Spa ( SpAzul ) is under construction?! (Shay you might need to know this...) I was pissed b/c i was supposed to have a room to change into ( since i am staying at the Gran) but not the case anymore. Michelle my WC said she could find me an area but i don't think i want to chance it. It could be a game time decision when i actually see the space in 2 weeks - yeah!

Well, I don't know what do to b/c my girls have to start having their hair done at 9am!!! my Ceremony isn't until 4pm! Argh - i don't know what to do - help!! I just watne everyone together but I may have to change that...9am is sooo early! I would hate for some girls to get ready at the Gran and some to get ready at the Royal - but I may have to. Unfortunately i think some girls may just decide NOT to get their hair done...which i really don't want to have happen. gerr - why is there only one person who can do updo'shuh.gif

    • Hi all, My younger sister is 5 months carrying. She is suffering from hearing loss now. She was perfectly alright before she got conceived. But once she got conceived her hearing ability started getting reduced. Is it quite common now? What would be the reason for hearing loss during the pregnancy period? After scanning the doctor said that the baby is underweight. Since she is suffering from severe vomiting, she is not eating any food. Hence she seems to be very weak. The doctor has prescribed a lot of medicines for her to stay healthy and to deliver a healthy baby. In the midst of all these she is also undergoing the treatment under a hearing aid audiologist in order to improve her hearing ability. Will she completely regain her hearing ability?
