ceiba del mar hotel and spa

Recommended Posts

Woohoo Theresa I'm so excited for you!  It'll be here before you know it.  :)

 

Brenners -One thing that you mentioned that I wanted to expand on is the personal service from Diana and the staff.  Diana has been on top of things throughout the planning process. Not only is she attentive and helpful, she's also patient with the numerous questions and requests we've had.   

 

What are the other resorts you're looking at?

KP we are also looking at Barcelo Maya and Dreams Riviera Cancun.  Ceiba would be an easy choice if it was just us but we have some younger people coming (late teens-early 20's) who will likely want more activities available.  But I really love Ceiba.

Since they have no specific packages and everything is customized at Ceiba (which is great!), how do you know you are using the best vendors and getting the best prices?  Is there a vendor list outside of what the resort sends to assist you with this?  Also, does the WC at Ceiba assist with coordinating this or do you have to do all the leg work yourself?  Just a few questions I have before making a final decision on a site.

Brenners:

 

You coordinate and do the leg work.  Ceiba will help answer questions, give you referrals/recommendations, etc., but ultimately you are the one who does the work, and gets to choose.  (This appealed to me more than some other resorts that have mandatory vendors.  You have more options, and can work within your budget.)  You have the vendor list from Ceiba, but if you read about other vendors online (esp. on here), definitely check them out.  I think a few of our vendors were not on the list, but we liked the reviews we read online.  I then asked Ceiba about them, and Ceiba confirmed they were good vendors.  (And there are complete categories of vendors not even on Ceiba's list.  For those,  Ceiba has always ready and willing w/recommendations and assistance.)

 

As far as pricing, get quotes from the vendors you are interested in.  If it seems too high, then get quotes from others.  Shop around until you find the quality you want within the price you can afford.

 

My wedding is less than 4 weeks away, and thus far I have had no stress or issues working with Ceiba, or contacting/contracting with vendors.  It has been relatively easy and stress free! :)

Thanks Tweets  Do you know which threads have the list of additional vendors?  I am so happy to hear that you have had a good experience planning your wedding.  I love the idea of being able to pick and choose what we want so that is great.  Just nervous about working with vendors from a distance, however, Ceiba is great and I have only heard and seen wonderful things and weddings about them.

hello Brenners!

yes the hotel offers to their brides a list of preferred vendors that are vendors they trust and have worked at the hotel. For us, is easier work at the hotel which we already know the access, the staff and their inventory, aso we are able to suggest only complement items. The vantage is we already know what you need depending of the number of guests... Paola as a WC used to asist you coordinating the vendors, shes is really amazing and will help you in everything you need. So glad to let you know we are really good team. Planner 1 works in several hotels in Cancun and Riviera Maya and Ceiba is the one of the Hotels we enjoy most!! 

In case you have any doubt or need any further information, please let me know.

 

Kindly regards

 

Gabi

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
