So I thought I had really decided on the Moon Palace, but now after reading lots of posts I am realizing that I have chosen one of the most expensive resorts for guests. I need to do a little more research because some of my most important guests do not know how to budget and save money. I was hoping people would be willing to share their resorts and what kind of group rates they received. Thanks lots!

We are getting married at the Gran Bahia on the Akumal side and our guests are paying around $1500 for 8 days and just under $1000 for 5 days.

I was just looking at their website. From what I read it is all inclusive except dinner….is that right? What about alcohol? How much are you paying for your wedding package? I looked at their packages but did not see any prices. One more question….does you travel agent work with people out of state? If so would you mind sending me her/his contact info.

Thanks for your help!

The way that helped me to narrow down resorts based on price, i did this on my own, was going on a cheapcaribbean.com or apple vacations website and doing a search of all hotels in the Riviera Maya around the time you want to get married. You'll get the prices of all resorts, be careful b/c sometimes there are extra costs, and then you'll have an idea of how much each resort can cost you so you can just cross off resorts that you think is too high for your guest to be paying.

I'm getting married at MP in May. While it is more expensive than some of the other resorts I really liked all of the "freebies" that were offered. My guests can essentially stay for a week there without having any out of pocket expenses (except of tips). When you add in the cost of tours, food for none AIs, and a lot of off resort trips it can get really expensive. Do some price comparisons, if you find a place that you like price the rooms but also try to factor in the cost of other amenities and see what you come up with!

I'm also getting married at the Moon Palace and we have 30 guests booked already. We chose the MP only because FI's uncle has "timeshare" there and had given us our trip & hotel stay for a wedding present. Our guests did comment on the price, but after I explained that it is a 5+ star resort and it's AI, they warmed up to the idea. Obviously, because we have more guests than we expected now :) I mean EVERYTHING is included there.. plus free tours and alot of little extras.. they go the extra mile. You definately get what you pay for.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
