The great Riviera Maya debate!

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

 

I just got back this past Sunday from the Mexican Riviera Maya. I went down there for my site visit with my fiancee, both of our parents and his brother and brother's wife. We wanted input from our families, as well as an excuse for us to all vacation together.

 

We visited Secrets Capri Riviera Cancun, Paradisus Riviera Cancun and Royal Hideaway Playacar. All were very nice, but so different from one another. We loved the layout of Paradisus, the romance and elegance of Secrets Capri and the attention to detail at Royal Hideaway. In the end, we have to rule out Royal Hideaway simply because it will be too expensive for our guests to stay there. We're now left debating between Secrets and Paradisus and can't make up our mind!

 

If anyone out there has any positive or negative feedback about either resort, I'd greatly appreciate it! I'm hoping to put down my deposit and lock in a date AND a resort by this weekend, but if I can't make up my mind I may be flying back AGAIN to check out more spots to better make up my mind. I'm hoping to avoid that!

 

Thank you!

Welcome, you will definately be able to figure it out with the help of the ladies on this forum! Unfortunately I haven't been to either so I am not much help.

 

Happy Planning!!

Welcome! I was recently married at Paradisus. Drop by the thread - lots of info and the ladies there are so helpful.

 

A quick pro/con:

 

Pros: 1 wedding a day

Liked the wc

Beach-front ceremony available

Excellent restaurant/concierge service

 

Cons: Seagrass on the beach

Dislike spa and spa services

Kids - wasn't a problem while I was there, but an adults-only would

have been even better :)

Rainy day option is a ballroom sad.gif

How fun that you did a site visit with your family too! It sounds like you can't go wrong either way. Do they both have comperable wedding packages? Good Luck!

    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
    • Hi all. My fiance and I are getting married at Dreams Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas on April, 2021! We've been together for 3 years and we are so excited for our little wedding!
