      I haven't heard much about that resort. She should ask her wedding coordinator or refer to their website for that information.

        I know that two out of the MANY resorts in the Riviera Maya area don't make a huge deal over outside photographers. I stayed in The Riu Cancun and The Moon Palace and shot weddings there and I wasn't confronted by one person about paying a fee. I did stay at the resort though.

          That's why I didn't choose EDR. I think the fee for outside photo is outragous.

            Hmmm....good to know. PHotography is important to me in my decision of what resort to go to, and I really don't want to pay a huge fee just to have my photographer there. Not good. We haven't picked our resort yet, getting married in June of 2010, but that is something to consider

              We just booked at the El Dorado Seaside and we are bringing our own photog- they waived the $500 fee because the photog is staying for 3 nights. Looks like this sticky paid off, but wondering if it makes sense to make other resort stickys for issues that are still active?

                Just had our wedding at El Dorado Seaside Suites with our own photographer from Canada. No issues, no extra fees, no hassles. We had cleared it before and they did stay for three nights, but it was seamless...... just thought I'd give a little update :)

                  This seems to be a policy not only for El Dorado Royale, but also some other resorts. Moon Palace hotels have the same policy. They charge a fee, and they also charge a Day Pass per person. This seems to be outrageous.

                      I'm also booked at the Azul Sensatorui... we met with our WC this weekend... we found a few things about their policies that we were not pleased with. I'm a little upset with our TA who booked us there for not telling us these details before. Our guests with chilidren, regardless of age, have to pay an upgrade free for a different suite catagory.

                      With the photography, we've checked out the websites for the "approved" vendors... honestly I'm just not wow'd by what I saw.

                      I'm a little dispointed already...
