I have attached the 2010 wedding package price list. I am not really sure how to attach things...so I hope this works!

For those of you who hav already been to the resort...Can anyone tell me what is the exact difference between the Riviera Mayan part of the hotel and the Yucatan part?

I know they share all ameneties and everything, so I am wondering what is the difference? Does one side have nicer rooms or is one side rated better? My TA has given me a group quote for the Yucatan side, but she said her vendor has not yet released the prices for the Riviera Mayan side. I am wondering if there will be a difference?

 

Thanks!

they are pretty similar. I believe the RM side deals more with the US & the yucatan side deals with europe. If you didn't already know, you probably wouldn't think they were two hotels. The two lobbies is the only clue.

Thanks for the prices! Unfortunately, I couldn't open it...but no worries, I got an email from the resort today. Unfortunately the only thing they sent was the exact same thing that is posted on the website! I was really more curious about location option, and extra pricing - like for flowers etc (which I did state in my original request). It kind of bothers me that those things are not on the website like so many other resorts. Plus other resorts sent TONS of info - pictures and pricing of "extras." Good thing all you ladies have given some info - even if it is not for 2011, I have an idea.

Hey Kristen - i was going to say the opposite to Morgan - lol! RM side seemed to be mainly europeans like me and the Yucatan side for the US - LOL! Really though i think the only difference is that they have different receptions - you wouldnt know they were 2 seperate hotels! It might be worth looking on tripadvisor about the rooms as there are loads of reviews on there.

Thanks Kristen - this is really helpful as it tells you exactly what you need for the legal wedding ie; what documents. Our TA here in the UK was a little uncertain as she said it differs from hotel to hotel - how im ahead of the game!

No problem! Glad to be of service:)
I just heard back from Elena today about the difference between the two sides of the resort. Apparently the only difference is that the Superior and Suite type rooms are only offered on the Riviera Mayan side. So there we go...that's good to know!

This thread is wonderful! You all have given me so much info already - thanks! So I emailed Elena to try to set up a site visit at the end of June when we will be in Playa. Of course, with my luck, she will be out of town. But she said Marisol could help. Does anyone have experience with her? Im just worried she might not have all the right information.....what do you think?

Marisol is wonderful! She speaks great english and was very helpful for us! If she is unsure of anything, don't worry, she will get the answer. Write all your questions down and make a copy for her... that way she can have a list of her own.

 

Good Luck!

Glad to know Marisol knows her stuff! This picking a resort is becoming so stressfull! I want something we love, but priced fairly for our guests. My family keeps saying that we should do what we like, and if people are going to come, they will find a way, a few hundred dollars won't stop em! But I don't know. I really like the CAT in many ways, but I just can't get over the white tent!! I just really don't like it. I know someone asked recently about different options and it was a "no" but Im hoping I could even pay extra for a flower huppa or something. The base packages are so much less than other places, it wouldn be out of the question for us. We will see!!!

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
