    Ladies,
    I know there isn't much on the Westin Resort in Cancun on this forum (for whatever reason). I just got back from a site visit of this resort, and I must say it is stunning. It really surprised me how nice it was (Westin received some bad reviews on TripAdvisor)! Gabriela, the WC was very helpful and the property had so many options for ceremonies and receptions. The only bad thing about the Westin is that it is very far away from the rest of the hotel zone (but this is a good thing for those brides seeking privacy and to be away from the chaos of the hotel zone). I will be posting a full site visit review soon whenever I get a chance. Seeing as how I am looking into the Westin though, I found a previous Westin bride who provided me with the following helpful review:

    Jessica,

    First, congratulations on your engagement.

    I would suggest that you and your wedding party stay
    in the Royal Palm Beach hotel. It's a little more,
    but worth it. Why? The complimentary breakfast will
    ensure that you see your guests every morning, which
    was nice. The small pool was great for our older
    guests who had first floor rooms that opened to the
    pool.. great place for us to congregate, leave towels,
    eat together, etc. Also, the complementary happy hour
    was really fantastic. Again, it meant you saw
    everyone every evening and let's face it, free
    domestic drinks and mixers were great. The night
    before the wedding, we literally were at the bar
    ordering 40 margaritas and 40 shots of tequila at a
    time. We tipped the bartenders VERY WELL, and they
    kept it coming. Tremendous!

    Our wedding was flawless. Gabriela did a fabulous
    job, she was extremely attentive to our millions of
    questions and made everything run smoothly. We went
    there to see the place before hand and made many
    decisions before hand. We tasted the food, chose our
    cake, etc. On the day of the wedding, everything was
    great. Expect to have a few additional expenses here
    and there, but everything was fine.

    The food for the wedding was absolutely incredible! I
    am not exaggerating. For the cocktail hour, we had a
    Mexican spread, chips, salsa, guac, chili, it was
    nice. For dinner, we chose a stuffed chicken dish
    (WOW), a fish disk, and a few vegetarian dishes. Our
    cake was tres leches (WOW).

    We eventually chose to have the wedding at the Lagoon,
    cocktail hour there as well, and had dinner on the
    ocean side. The locale was fabulous. The weather was
    beautiful. Our wedding started at 4pm, so we ran out
    of sunlight quickly, so think about the time you need
    for the pictures. Beyond that, it was great.
    Actually, the way the sun started to set as we were
    married was absolutely beautiful.

    We were married by Petra, and she was great! We had
    everyone wear white and creams (I wore White linen, my
    wife a sand/cream colored chiffon gown) and she also
    wore a white suit and really blended into the
    atmosphere. She is very articulate and did a great
    job.

    Complaints: The music was only ok. We hired a local
    DJ through Gabriela and he was not great at all.
    However, our wedding was so diverse and the music we
    wanted was fairly foreign to them, so that may have
    contributed. If top 40 works for you, you'll be fine.

    Take Care!

      Thanks for the review! I love the Westin Puerto Vallarta - good to know the one in Cancun is nice too :)

      We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!

      We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

        I was looking for some information or pics from the Westin Cancun and also couldn't find much. Did you ever write a review? Any advice? Thanks!
