    Hey all -

    We're strongly considering the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya for our March 2010 wedding, but I'm getting a bit worried that there seems to be no other brides going there! What gives? Is there something I don't know?

    I'd love to hear from anyone who's either been to a GSRM wedding, or will be hosting one...

      Welcome! We attend a wedding at the Grand Sirenis in November 2007. The hotel itself is quite new and the grounds sprawling - it certainly has that "modern" feel - clean lines, grey, black, silver etc. the lobby looks like a fancy bank.

      The wedding was beatiful - although not overly private so if seclusion is something you are big into then I would look at other spots at the hotel aside from the beach...

      There are two things I would keep in mind - the hotel is a 2 hour bus ride from the cancun airport which is quite significant, and the beach is small (I think it's a man made lagoon and beach).

      If you have specific questions ask away! The

        Not sure if you have decided on this resort yet or not. My FI and I were there last August (200 and although it was a nice clean hotel, it did not feel that "mexican" to me. The one really great thing about this resort is the two open bars, one in each reception but on the lower floor. A good gathering place for your guests to meet and have drinks. The pools are okay, in comparison to Barcelo Maya Colonial/Beach resort. If you would like to see some photo's of the resort you can search through mine that I have posted. Send me a PM and I will forward the link to you if you are interested.

        Good luck with planning.

              As far as restaurants at the resort, they tend to use the restaurant areas that are the daytime buffets, if that makes any sense. There are two that come to mind immediately, both near a pool. The beach was nice and has really great snorkeling. It is smaller but more of an intimate cove with a dive shop at one end. I agree with MissyR that a beach ceremony may not be all that private, but if you are able to go off around the side of the beach (back towards the airport direction, not towards Tulum side) then it may be more private. When we were there it was not at full occupancy so everything was a little quite. They should have all the resort shops open by now and what was open was nice.

                Congrats! The wedding was about 45 people - and If I recall correctly, it was in the Mexican Restaurant...

                    I am also considering this resort. I have been talking to the wedding coordinator there and she is very timely with her responses and has been very helpful. We are just waiting for our travel agent to find a decent price. Our wedding is in July so we were hoping that the prices would be a little better.

                      I think we have decided on the Grand Sirenis Mayan Beach Hotel & Spa for our May 2011 wedding. We have decided on one of the wedding packages offered by Transat vacations. Any other GSMB brides out there
