    It was the Riu Jalisco in Puerto Vallarta - I just realised you're looking in Cancun!

    The Riu resorts fitted our budget quite well - I really wanted Dreams, but when it came down to it, I was happy with Riu to save everyone quite a bit of cash! I believe the travel agent got a group rate through Sunquest.

      Ava-- we haven't shut out PV from possiblities yet. We have both heard great things about PV and it could very well be where we go (if we can't decide on a reasonably-price resort in Mayan Riviera). I just don't like the idea of going to Cancun (crowds :S ). I'll have to take a look at Riu resorts because there seems to be quite a few people who have suggested it! Thanks!

        I think the reason they're so popular, is they're a combination of affordability and class! I'm certainly really happy so far, let me know if you need any info I've obtained, but I'm still getting it together!

          so, I have an issue. My fiance and I cannot agree on a location for our Feb 2010 wedding. He does not want the resort to be more than $1700-1800/person (taxes included). I, on the other hand, think it's okay for it to be $2200 (taxes incl. with group rate...which seems to be the norm of the placed i think would be nice). I mean, as long as we get there, and our parents get there...then we're fine. He wants tons of people to go, while I could care less if anyone comes (as long as our parents come). so I'm looking endlessly at these stupid resort books trying to find a resort that he'd be happy with. I mean, it's our *wedding* not a random trip that we want the best deal on. I don't want to have my wedding at a hole-in-the-wall resort just to save a couple hundred dollars. It was his idea for the destination wedding, and he sold me on the idea. Help me out girls...Am I crazy?
          I am having the exact same problem to a 'T'!

          Anyways, just wanted to suggest, we would go there ourselves had we not already went there once (for one of our good friends weddings). We went to Riu Jalisco in Puerta Vallarta, and although the water is not as nice as Cancun, this place, for the price, was probably the best value I've ever had on vacation. It was 1632 per person, in CDN $. So anyways, due your dilligence and check it out if you want, I really loved it and everything about the wedding was top notch too. The Gazebo is not anywhere near the beach (well it is within walking distance but not right beside it or anything) so you don't have crowds watching you. Anyways, our whole party of 38 really enjoyed it. The disco SUCKS though! haha

            By the way, it was $1632 in 2005, hehe.

            And yes, 2200 is a lot, but it really depends on you and your friends' situation. I'm in my late 20's and so are my friends, and we coudldn't afford that...

              I agree there are tons of resorts in your price range, always search for specials too... ie: AAA or some group rates....I found a room $500 lower for a week than my TA, b/c I searched for this type of stuff....

                Hi Bride :)
                I think you should narrow your top 2 or 3 resorts down to show your fiance for where you two will be staying and have different price options to send to your family & friends...that's what me and my FH are doing, staying where we want to stay and then having a couple different price options from the cheapest to middle of the road pricing and also prices of where we are staying for anyone who may want to be where we're at. This way it gives our invited guests a range of options that they can seriously look at and determine if they can make it or not. Good luck in your planning and I'm thinking good thoughts for you!! ~Lea S.

                  I believe the girl who started this thread ended up goin w/ Gran Bahia Principe Tulum. I'm not positive. She started this in May of 2008 and hasn't been on in a few months
