Brand Newbie!

Recommended Posts

My name is Megan and I am a little over a year away from the BIG day. I couldn't be happier! My fiancee and I have a little girl together and have waited almost four years to get married. So you can imagine just how excited I am to see my wedding day come! We are not 100% on the date AND the location although we have a pretty good idea on both accounts.

Tentatively, we would like to get married on May 8th, 2010 somewhere on the turquoise waters of Mexico. Originally we were trying to stay away from Cancun to get less of that tourist-feel, however we didn't want to stray too far from the airport either. At the moment I am looking into the Moon Palace Spa and Golf resort on the Mayan Riviera. The only problem is that I've read that the beach is not fantastic. EVERYTHING else I've read about the resort seems perfect. It's family friendly, has inclusive tours, highly rated service, lots of food and bar choices and even a disco! We have about 25 people coming to celebrate with us and it seems like a great set up for everyone...I'm a little disappointed about the beach though. Is it wrong to want everything? :)

I also took a look at the Grand Palladium and the Grand Riviera Princess (which I'm not sure whether they do weddings or not, ha!) But they are both quite a haul away from the airport and I'm not sure how we would get to the resort! I know that there are taxi and limo services but I haven't been far enough into the process to check out those prices. And I'm TERRIFIED of renting a car and driving through Mexico. Call me crazy, that's how I feel. :)

And so, friends, I am continuing my search, making myself crazy in the process. I'm trying to convince myself that the beach may not be as bad as I think it will be. It's still a beautiful beach, just not the perfect sea-weed-free gem I was expecting. (which I know we'll have access to at the other palace resorts) Please feel free to give ANY advice you can offer up. Even if it's to tell me to take a chill pill. Seriously. :)


Thanks to all!

First off, Congrats!!! and Welcome.


We have decided to get married at the Moon Palace Resort in Cancun, Mexico. We have been down there a couple of times and just fell in love with the place. There is a whole forum dedicated to this resort with sooo much helpful information.


The beach isn't as bad as people make it.. there is some seaweed, but the staff does a great job of cleaning it all up.

Congratulations to you as well!! And thank you for telling me this. I'm really in love with everything I've seen and heard about this resort. The beach has been my only reservation. Good luck with all of your wedding planning!

Everything is really wonderful there and the staff is so friendly and helpful. The more and more I read in this forum about MP, the more and more I realized we made the best choice!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
