    Hi! My name is Johanna. I'm also looking forward to book my wedding in Ceiba del mar for next year on the month of april. I have been getting some info through my travel agent from Destinationweddings.com. I love everything about it. The size of the hotel, the proximity of it to the main town, the spa, the beach! I've ask about their packages. They seem to have reasonable prices. Though a lot more than what I expected. The good thing about this resort though is that they can customize according to our needs. I'm going to try to post some of those price list the WC sent me. I ask my immediate family what they think about it, so far the only negative response was that the room rates are little pricey.

      I have booked my November 6th wedding there... and I've already been on a site visit. The place is spectacular and although the prices for the rooms are high, it's still pretty reasonable for an all-inclusive luxury resort. The spa is top notch and the food was really good. Denise is letting me basically design my own menu due to the size of my group (40ish). The location is breathtaking. I will lose some people due to the price but there are plenty of simple hotels in Puerto Morales where your guests can stay (40-100$ a night) and then they can come to Cieba for your wedding. The cost of a day pass is $20 per person per day. All Inclusive is $105 per person per day... so that might be an option. The town is literally a 15 minute walk via the BEACH! The woman doing my flowers and everything else not food/drink related is fabulous... I can't remember if I've given this thread her info but here it is again:

        My guest number may be close to yours if not less. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and your wedding proposal! I may not be able to even do a site visit due to my budget. So I really do appreciate your feedback on this.

            My pleasure Nga!

            I have TONS of pictures so if you want to see those send me a private message with your email address and I can forward them to you. I can't say enough about the place... if you can swing it, a site visit is highly recommended. Basically it goes like this:

            You pay 50% of the rack room rate up front for the night and then it's credited to your wedding costs if you decide to book. Taxes aren't included, just the base rate. And if you do decide to book, you are automatically upgraded to the penthouse (breathtaking) for your entire stay. For every night you have 15 rooms booked at the hotel along with your room, your room is free. So that saves you money right there! I'm praying that I have the 15 but since my wedding will be a week long, not everyone will be able to stay the entire week so I'm budgeting having to pay for our entire stay just to be safe...

            Hope this helps!

              Has anyone heard from someone who has actually gotten married here? I searched but couldn't find anything ... my apologies if I inadvertently missed a thread containing some kind of first-hand account. It looks like a really good option for us since we're not into huge resorts and are looking for something more secluded and private. Anyone?

              Thanks!

                I just "discovered" this resort and it looks amazing. Thank you so much for posting all of your helpful information. I emailed the resort and when I have something, I will be sure to post as well.

                Thanks!

                  Nope but trust me, it's fantastic! Hopefully I will be the first bride to share my story! The resort is perfection... private, secluded and totally customizable! Denise and staff will help you plan your dream wedding. They are also super fast at replying to emails which can be a pain in Mexico! Let me know if you want particulars.

                    I am in the process of booking my wedding there and so far they have been great in answering questions and working with me.

                      Thanks, this is all very reassuring! It's still so scary though to book a place without having read a review from someone who has actually gotten married there. It looks fantastic though! Hopefully it will be within my budget.
