Grand Riviera Princess & Grand Sunset Princess
Posted 01 December 2008 - 10:59 AM
I have also been reading some of the trip advisor reviews on the Grand Riviera and I am a little concerned but I know you can not take them 100% as everyone has their own perceptions on how a resort should be.
Any tips or info on this resort would be greatly appreciated.

I did a lot of research and looked into this Grand Riviera Princess and Grand Sunset. Basically it is two resorts in one.
The Grand Sunset was built first and then the Grand Riviera right after.
Here ar the Reviews for each to check out on Trip advisor:
Grand Riviera (you may have to copy and paste below link in your browser)
Grand Riviera Maya Princess (Puerto Juarez, Yucatan Peninsula) - Hotel Reviews - TripAdvisor
Grand Sunset: (you may have to copy and paste below link in your broweser)
Grand Sunset Princess (Playa del Carmen, Riviera Maya) - Hotel Reviews - TripAdvisor
I know these resorts due to being so new they have some issues with service and other areas with this resort.
It is the same wedding coordinator for both resorts. Here is her contact:

My fiance and I have decided against getting married at this resort. We have travelled a lot and tend to be on the picky side as some may call it. We investigated in other resorts and for the dollar value for our Guest and to still be married on a nice resort and beach we have went with the Grand Palladium Riviera (about 80 min South of Cancun). It is a 5 star. You stay and play at all 4. You get privelages to Grand Palladium White Sands, Grand Palladium Kantenah and Grand Palladium Colonial (which are all 5 stars as well). You have unlimited alacartes you just show up and get a beeper when your table is ready. They do have a Royal Section which has extra' (depends if those extras even interest you as there are some perks). Our wedding is booked for November 2009.
The wedding coordinators Rioco and Erika are amazing there!! No sooner you send them an email they get back to you. I had my wedding date and time confirmed with them (as they have to go to the Mexico city hall to book a judge to marry you and get a time) within 8 hours. They have great reviews for weddings at these resorts as they handle all 4 resorts at the Palladium for weddings. Max weddings is 2 a day (which is very nice!!).

Also, there is a new resort that opened up called Sensatori AZUL - very nice but modern looking. Not many reviews on it as it just opened this month but the wedding specialist that we used for destination weddings just got back from there and said it was amazing!! It is part of the new Karisma resorts. The price we got back was 1645.00 per person but we thought that was too high of a price for our guest and went with the lower price for the Grand Palladium Riviera.
So sorry for the long review but I thought I would send you as much information as possible.
The Grand Sunset and The Grand Riviera do look very nice for being new and all but read over the reviews and see if they suit you and your fiance.

Did you end up confirming with Princess? When in November is your wedding? I am getting married NOvember 27th?

We are booked in with the Grand Palladium Rivieria and our wedding date is Nov 19,2009. All our invitations have gone out now and it is just up to our guest to put the deposits down. The hardest part was trying to go through all the resorts and get a good price for our guests.
I can not get over how many weddings are taking place this November.
Have you found a photographer yet? I am looking into that now.

Parissa, did you book your trip yet? When are you arriving? We'll be there until the 20th and then we're headed over to Cozumel for our honeymoon.

I'm trying to book my wedding date for November 19, 2009 at the Grand Sunset Princess and just waiting for a reply from the wedding coordinator so that I can start booking everything else...photography, rooms etc. Just curious; how long did it typically take you guys to get replies back?

Other than that the resort was great and there were quite a few weddings during our stay so it must be good. I did get an information package for their weddings so if you need any info from there I'm more than happy to pass along what I can.
