I am trying to decide between the two right now and am not sure if it is worth the extra money to set up a buffet by the pool for the dinner.

    Also - after being at the resort, do you have any suggestions on what we could do for a meet n greet type party the day that our guests arrive? Is there a bar we could have everyone meet at to say hello and make introductions? We are not all coming from the same place.

    If anyone else has any thoughts, i'd love to hear them!

    Thanks!
    Manda, We had dinner at a restaurant then poolside reception. But, we just used our guests dinner for our reception...and most of them still got another dinner, all they had to do was ask! I would have loved to have had the dinner poolside, but we got married in July and it was WAY too hot. I bet it would be lovely in November though!

    I am not too familiar with Akumal side, but Tulum side had a lobby bar that would be perfect, I am sure Akumal side has one too.

      OMG, Martha, here I am again... we are having our wedding June 27 with poolside reception. Are people going to melt from the heat? LOL... Or is it breezy at all in the evening? I don't want our guests to be fainting!

          In all honesty, it was HOT and WINDY. Mostly during the wedding. After the sun went down, it was less hot and windy. But...it was also SUPER humid during the day. I am used to humidity because I live in the south near the gulf, but this was NUTS! Jay was sweating through his suit at the wedding. Poor guy!

              Ha! Hopefully not! I think maybe it was extra humid because it rained for 3 days leading up to the wedding.

                You know what, someone said to me the other day, it is summer here in NJ too and it will be hot here too... My friend got married three years ago June 11th in NJ and it was so hot and humid, we all thought we were going to pass out. She still jokes around about how muggy it was lol... so, it is what you make of it right?!

                      Hey Martha, great review! I don't know if you still check this thread, but i was wondering which block of hotel rooms you were in that allowed a pretty nice view of the ocean? Is there a block of rooms you would recommend? (ie. close to pool, bar, beach, or view?)

                      Beautiful photos.
