    I agree. Stay away from trip advisor. I'm getting married at a Dreams Resort and lots of brides on here have. I only have heard good things.

      Hi Steph - What are you looking for in a resort? We're getting married in the Riviera Maya in Jan 2009 and we toured some places so I might be able to give you a few suggestions depending on what you're looking for!

            Do you have anything else in mind besides the El Dorado Royale?
            Thanks for your response! We've been looking at the Paradisus Riviera Cancun Resort and Playacar Palace.. Have you heard anything good or bad about these resorts?
            Thanks, Steph

              Hi! Welcome!!

              I'm getting married at the Moon Palace and have stayed at the Cancun Palace before. We also have family who have stayed at Palace Resort and have nothing bad to say about them!

              With the Palace Resorts, you can stay at one, and then go to the others if you want (Cancun Palace beach is amazing) and if you stay 3 or more nights, they include excursions...a great bonus, if you ask me.

              Good Luck!

                Welcome to the forum! There is a ton of info on the RM. I'd suggest searching around for a while!

                Welcome! Try looking into the Dreams resorts, they don't charge asronomical fees for private dinners, only $28 pp for set up and all the food and drinks are included. One of the big problems we had with the AI's we looked at other than Dreams, was that they charged extra for a private dinner and for drinks although our guests and ourselves were going to be staying there all inclusive for the week...it seemed ridiculous. Goodluck with the planning!

                  Welcome! I am getting married in Playa del Carmen in October. I know a lot of people are saying don't read Trip Advisor... but I personally found it very helpful looking at the pictures that were posted by the reviewers. It gives you a better idea of that the hotel looks like on a day to day basis rather than the professional pictures that are on the website. But I do agree that actual reviews on Trip Advisor just confuse you! Happy Planning!
