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

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies!!

 

I am back from my amazing wedding & honeymoon!  I feel like Iâ€ve been gone forever but everything went by so fast.  Iâ€m going to post a full review with pics by tomorrow but here is just an overview…

 

Hotel – amazing!  We had an oceanfront room and the view was great.  Very spacious room.  Everyone was super friendly & helpful.  We hung out a lot at the pool and it was great.

 

Resort food – Very good!  My ONLY complaint was a very bad dinner experience at Tapas y Pinxos…had to wait over 1.5 hours and we were missing orders…we ended up leaving.  Also…Spice does not have AC, we ate breakfast & lunch a lot at Mediterraneo…which is a buffet in the A/C.  Also…Grand Porto has a great buffet for breakfast/lunch.  Maria Marie & Asiana were awesome!

 

Spa – did Mani Pedi & Hair/Makeup.  Amazing Mani Pedi!  Makeup and hair was also very good.  My advice would be to not wear your hair down.  It was windy and my hair was flying everywhere and the curls fell out quickly.

 

WC – Lili was amazing & took care of everything!  We went over all the details 2 days before the wedding and she was running around making sure everything was perfect for us.

 

Photos – We used Funever & we had Cesar who was really good!  We get the pictures in 2 more weeks.

 

Ceremony – Gazebo was great…we ended up with 24 guests seated under the gazebo.  Was intimate and very peaceful…the minister was great.  She said everything perfectly and with a lot of meaning.

 

Cocktail Hour – in the garden behind the gazebo…everyone loved the food and the guitarist we got.  We had an “upgrade†apparently which included all hot and cold apps.  The sesame crusted chicken was a huge hit!  I wish I had been able to enjoy it.

 

Reception – AWESOME!  DJ and extra hour was worth it.  Most of the time almost the entire group was on the dance floor (which was a dark wood raised floor, ill post pics in the long review).  Food & Cake was great.  The servers were awesome at getting drinks for us…they wouldnâ€t even let us walk up to the bar and always found us to give us a refresher.  A lot of the married people there said that they wished their wedding was like ours.  That was a nice compliment :)

 

It was such an amazing experience and everything went perfectly!  Just make sure you really take time to enjoy if you can….it goes by sooo quickly!

Love jello shots!!

 

Di! So glad to hear that you got that resolved. How funny! You would think being in the state of Texas and sharing borders, it would not be difficult to accept it. Where did you go for yours? Anywhere fun in Houston?
