    Ladies - Just wanted to say thank you for all the help and advice you've given to me and to all the others on this board. I'm excited and confident that my FI and I are going to find a great place in the Riviera Maya to tie the knot!!

              Just got back! I am SO excited to get married in the Riviera Maya now, after seeing it.

              We met with coordinators at:

              The Tides (formerly Ikal del Mar)
              Le Reve
              Fairmont Mayakoba
              Rosewood Mayakoba
              Al Cielo

              We walked by a bunch of other places too, including Grand Coral and Catalonia.

              Let me know if you ladies want more information, I'd be happy to share :)

                Welcome back! Are you leaning towards one now? I went in Sept and stayed at the Fairmont. We loved it and I think we are leaning that way. I haven't gotten enough wedding info on it though.

                  We are choosing between Le Reve and Esencia, I think. Smaller than the others.

                  Isabel Menendez gave us a great tour of the Fairmont and it's a beautiful property! What I didn't expect, though, is that all the resorts on Mayakoba would be so far from the ocean. You have to take either a golf cart or a little boat and it takes a solid five minutes. All the Mayakoba resorts are situated on a lagoon, which is really cool in its own way!

                  Here's Isabel's information:
                  Special Events Manager
                  Fairmont Mayakoba

                    So what made you lean towards those 2? Did you make a pro's and con's list of each to decide? Carla

                      This is going to sound so cheesy but both Esencia and Le Reve just FELT RIGHT when we were there. I tried to picture myself walking down the beach in my wedding dress and it was those two places I could really imagine it.

                      Also, we decided that we wanted a small hotel where it would just be our guests so that it felt more private and intimate.

                      If someone can tell me how to put photos up, I can of each of the hotels...if interested :)
