Julie, the place is amazing and the food is SOOOOOOOOO friggin good! The food was better than most restaurants that we've eaten at (and paid for) in CA. I would highly recommend this resort for your wedding. However, if you are looking for something really private, you may want to look elsewhere for the ceremony. We watched about 4 weddings happen at the gazebo during our stay and there were sometimes people walking by. If you don;t mind that, then I would definitely go for it! It is in the perfect location, it is beautiful and the food was amazing!

I agree with Rebecca....the wedding and reception was not very private, but that was o.k. with us.

I am thinking of having my wedding at THE ROYAL also. I have seen many good reviews but not too many wedding photos. I like that we can have a reception or fun night in Playa Del Carmen since the resort is so close to 5th street; however this also concerns me that the wedding will not be private at all on the beach. The only beach wedding photo I saw had a big volleyball net in the background! This resort was my top pick until I talked to my Travel Agent who said he was not impressed with it at all and heard people had problems with the wedding coordinators turing over frequently.
Im so confused!!! Can anyone help me?
I am 26 he is 30 and we are getting married mid April 2008 in the Maya Riveris are, prefer near to Playa Del Carmen (short walk or shuttle/cab ride). We anticipate between 20-30 people. We want a nice resort with a beautiful beach/pool area and enough day and night activity to keep our group of 25-35 year olds happy. Any suggestions?

BUT, if you have a good photog then they should be able to crop things out of the photos - like people or volleyball nets...
As for as the hotel WC accomodating the bride, she was completely happy with the assistance. Now, I'm not sure if the same one is there...
Also, we had aprox. 50 people in our group - ages 5 - 60 - the majority being between 25 - 35. We had THE BEST TIME!! We LOVED the fact that we could walk to all of the bars and shops from the hotel w/o getting a cab. We LOVED the hot tubs in the rooms! We LOVED the food! We would def. go back. This is just me talking about my one and only experience at a DW.

Like I said, we saw 4 or so weddings and during some, there were people walking by and others no one. The later in the evening you have it, the better probably. If you do it just at sunset, most people are no longer on the beach. I remember them clearing the lounge chairs and things straight out from the gazebo so it wasn't visable for pictures, etc. I would still go for it. I spoke to a bride after her wedding there in the shuttle and she had no complaints at all. She also told me the wedding coordinator was great.
Your other option would be another really gorgeous resort out in the boonies?? But there won;t be a town walking distance, rather a short cab ride??
I have heard that the Aventura Spa Palace is gorgeous!

Would you mind me asking how many guests you're planning on inviting and how much you think it will come out to?
I'm comparing several places in Playa.
