ceiba del mar hotel and spa

Recommended Posts

Ceiba del Mar Brides I need your help!  We are in the middle of switching resorts (moving to CDM) and we are only 9 1/2 weeks away from our wedding date.  To save you the drama of the last couple weeks our previous resort is under renovations and we are concerned by their behavior that they won't be able to accomodate our entire party and move half of our guests to their sister hotel. That said I am almost back to square one planning a wedding site unseen and very nervous.  The other resort had an onsite wedding planner that dealt with all of the vendors.  But from what I understand about Ceiba, I now need to get in contact with vendors?  Where to start!  Florists, DJ's, Decorations, etc.  I am grateful for any recommendations you can give!  Thanks from the not-so-savvy bride right now!  sad.gif

smile29.gifI´m very sorry to hear that you are going through all of this just a few weeks from your big day!

 

I´m getting married in Cancun in May 2011 but I have a very nice WC  who is taking care of everything. I suggest you check her web and email her. Who knows she might be of help to you. www.floresjulieta.mex.tl

The onsite WC should be able to give you a list of vendors that they have dealt with in the past.  Who are you working with at Ceiba?  They have had some changes in the past few months with employees.  Did you visit CDM?  It is gorgeous and you and your guests will have a blast.  It sounds like a lot of people used EW as a vendor who can probably do most of the flowers, decor, etc...

Good luck.

Thank you for the info!  I'm relieved to hear that they do have an onsite WC, I'm sure I'll find out shortly who I will be working with, just very anxious since we are getting so close. Thanks again!

Definitely email Diana or Paolo for the list of vendors - or PM me with your email address and I can send you the list they sent me.  We are in the process of booking our florist, DJ, etc., so I can try to answer any questions you have based on the info the vendors sent me.  My fiance and I did a site visit in June, so I can try to answer any questions you have about the property as well.  Don't worry - everything will come together and it will be BEAUTIFUL! :)

Thank you all for the great information!  I'm not sure why my replies aren't posting, hopefully this one works.  Diana is the Sales Manager negotiating our room rates so it sounds like Paola is probably the WC at Ceiba?  I'm sure I will be hearing from her soon, just feeling a bit anxious since the wedding is only a little over two months away.  I think our best bet will be to use a planner in the area, just nervous we may get gouged for the last minute planning.  Oh well, it is what it is I guess, just have to cut back on the extras. Thank you for all the comforting words about the resort. We are really looking forward to staying there now!

Hello!

 

I am considering La Ceiba for my wedding and was wondering if past Ceiba brides could answer a few questions.  First, I am getting prices of minimum over $200 for a double room and $450 per double room for the gourmet-inclusive plan.  Did your guests take the all-inclusive plan?  Do you think there is any room to negotiate.... those prices seem a bit high for my guests.

 

Second, I was what the town of Puerto Morelos is like.  Is it worth exploring?  did you guests feel stranded?  How hard was it to go to Playa del Carmen?

 

Thank so much!
