Al Cielo Hotel

Recommended Posts

Just in case there are other brides who are considering Al Cielo, I just heard back from Donaji that the place is NOT CLOSING! They are in fact planning to add more rooms, and the construction is scheduled to start in May 2009.

If there are other brides considering Al Cielo hotel, Just be aware, there is a price increase on wedding packages from what you see on the website. From what I was told it will be around 30-50% increase. I am waiting on the final numbers, and will post the spreadsheet once I receive them. Just an FYI.

For those brides considering Al Cielo, especially since it now staying open, I just wanted to post the link to my very very positive Al Cielo Wedding Review here, so you can find it (as I assume double posting the actual review is bad forum etiquette?).

Or you can look under Wedding Reviews for:

"Nylalany's Reviews Part 3 - Al Cielo Wedding - Vendors & Wedding (Riviera Maya)"

Also, I did some writing about our creative lighting style on my flash flavor lighting blog. This may be an interesting read on how del Sol goes the extra mile to make dynamic photography!

 

I actually asked other photogs what they would do with this setup: FlashFlavor Blog Archive what would you do

 

Then posted results from my setup here: FlashFlavor Blog Archive here is what we did

Thanks for the photos Matt - it is neat to see another style wedding at the same place - there haven't been many posted here besides mine and itsme7396, but so far, all 3 feel somewhat unique! I like what you did with the palapa lighting - there isn't much lighting at Al Cielo and for a wedding that goes late into the night, that is an important consideration! We rented extra lighting and I still felt like we could have used a little more!

The following are the items that has been changed from the previous package:

New Event Site Fee 3000usd
New Coordination services fee: 1500usd
All menus have a 15usd extra charge
National Open Bar 20usd (each 3 first hours) and from 4th hr. 15usd/hr.
International Open Bar 30usd and from 4th hr. 20usd /hr.
Final bill is subject to a +10% Mexican tax I.V.A.

With these changes I got a quote for 21k for 30 people wedding, 25k for 40 people. This is including $580 discount from renting all four rooms for three nights min.

The person I have been in contact with was Donaji, and you can contact her at her e-mail address: weddings@alcielohotel.com

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the nice comments. We put quite a bit of effort to think about these ideas to try and change it up from the ordinary and I would totally agree, Al Cielo needs LOTS of ambient lighting. lots and lots and lots and lots more needed.

We shot this wedding there a few years ago, if you are in the mood to dig through more photos of the location: Sol Tamargo Photography Wedding Photojournalism but this is all we have done there so far.

The client that whose wedding we listed in the above post, Tobie & Tim, actually found our photos of Al Cielo online and made the decision to book the venue based on our images... a pretty kewl gesture! I'm hoping that we can get more folks hooked on the location!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
