    My Fiance and I are seriously considering this resort for our feb 2011 wedding but, we can't find any information on weddings that they offer. Also, it seems like there hasn't been many on BDW to marry here. Should this be a red flag for us?

      I feel the same way, but we took the plunge, and are getting married at the Grand Sirenis Mayan Beach and Spa May 2011. Pretty much the same resort, just a different block of hotel rooms than the GSRM.

      How is your decision coming along?

        I am just wondering if anyone has gotten married here recently. We have stayed here before and had a wonderful time. I am looking to go February 2011, but we still haven't picked our location. Does anyone have the price list for the wedding packages? How was the wedding?

        Any help would be appreciated.

          Yey! We finally booked our location -- here, at the Grand Sirenis, March 3, 2011 (well, we're hoping for that date anyway... MIL is a travel agent, so she's going to do all the paper-worky stuff tomorrow). We're paying $1450 (+$250 tax) to fly from BC to Cancun, a 7-day stay. We're going via Air Transat so we'll buy the $1000 wedding package.

          So excited!!

            Congrats on your decision. I just got the prices from the hotel for wedding packages, but they seem really high compared to the Air Transat packages. Has anyone used the packages from Air Transat? I am interested to see how they worked out.

              I would be interested in seeing the wedding packages the resort offers. Any chance that you could send them to me.

              Thanks,
              Jenna

                I would love a copy, too! My email is melaina_h(at)hotmail.com

                Thanks :)

                I haven't heard anything negative about the AirTransat weddings. In fact, I'm pretty sure that it's the same services as you'd get if you booked directly with the hotel (same coordinator, cake choices, etc). Once I get the AirTransat package details, I'll email it to you.

                    The only thing that I learned about the Air Transat package is that is doesn't include your minister/judge fees and a limited time at the restaurant (maybe 1.5 hrs). The packages at the hotel start at $1500.

                      Thanks for sending the info, Corbeil. You're right -- the hotel rates really do seem high (even considering the shortened dinner and lack of Minister fees in the Transat package). That said, comparing the list of Air Transat offerings to hotel offerings, these are the items included in the hotel package that I'll probably have to purchase and add onto my package:
                      Music during ceremony
                      DJ afterwards
                      Romantically decorated wedding location

                      Other "perks" they list, like VIP bathroom amenities (LOL) or surprise premium gift from hotel management, are definitely not worth the extra cost, though.

                      Let me know what you decide -- maybe I'll see you down there!!
