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 (200cool.gif 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.

Hey - thanks for the info! we actually decided to go with this resort, so I do have a question!
-How large was the wedding you attended, and do you remember which restaurant it was in?

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 therehuh.gif

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
