Who's NOT getting screwed by their resort?

Recommended Posts

I just got back from Dreams Tulum (review coming soon) and I couldn't believe how they didn't charge me for all the extras I requested or changes I made. I had the free package so they made no money off my wedding (and we only had 5 rooms booked) and still did the exact opposite of nickle and dime me.

So far we are impressed with the communication with our planner at the Royal. We chose the Royal because we had been there before and loved it. We love the location. And guests don't have to stay at the Royal if its too pricey; there are 2 sister hotels with in walking distance that are much cheaper. The only thing is that the plate charge for the dinner is $10 bucks more if they are staying at the sister hotel. The Royal might be worth a look. Good luck!!! I hope it works out!

Our resort is an AI, and while the cost for guests to attend is reasonable .... the extra fees that are added in to our cost of the ceremony asnd reception are pretty high. So much for an "affordable" DW. I stopped keeping count of our budget b/c it blew out the window ... but I'd say we are looking at about $25k instead of the $18K we had hoped for.

You probably want to specify that this is Dreams Cancun and not Dreams Tulum! (people may notice in your info on the left, but just to be sure, especially for the new people still choosing resorts!)

We are getting married at the Moon Palace in July. As far as guests are concerned, I think we're getting a great deal. Its $1,450 per person for 10 nights, AI plus a bunch of free tours. The wedding itself is a bit more difficult. I bought the ceremony package that includes bridal flowers and a cake. There are extra costs depending on the flowers you choose, extra costs for a non-basic cake. There are costs for the food, DJ, decorations and just about everything else. Its going to be a bit more expensive than we first imagined, but nothing compared to what we would have paid in the States. Plus we have been to the hotel before and just love it. To us its worth the extra costs and our guests have not complained too much about the prices.

We got great prices and service from our hotel - Aqua. They have been so accomodating to our needs and requests and so far we have been more than pleased!

We will however be staying at another resort for the stay - I have heard that ME Cancun offers good group deals!

my main complaint with the PRM was that everything for the wedding was $$$ extra...but the room rates for our guests were comparable with other resorts in the area...which in January, means pretty freaking high :)

 

We're going with Dreams Tulum and just sent out STDs this morning so we're happy.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
