We just visited there last week and loved it but they haven't hosted a lot of weddings so we are nervous. Also, they don't have a sandy beach. What has your experience been working with them? Were there a lot of hidden costs? The prices they quote seem too good to be true. Are most of your guests staying there? Thanks for any adivice you might have! Sarah

I covered a wedding there (Eurostars Blue) several months ago...
Elizabeth Medina Photography Blog Archive Beach Wedding: Courtney and Mark, Tulum, Mexico
And another just a few weeks ago (still working on the images for that one). There seems to be a new management in place. We were so impressed this time around by how the resort went over and above to make things perfect for the wedding. They even built a special dance floor and hung lighting for the dance floor especially for the wedding. The bride told me that the manager of the chain's hotels in Mexico came in to personally supervise.
There is not a sandy beach for swimming, it is rocky (which added a lot to the pictures I thought), but the atmosphere around the pool is great and the service/food is amazingly good. I think the resort has an intimate feel that is really nice.
Hope that helps! Elizabeth

I am getting married at Eurostars Blue on 8/31/08. We are just beginning our planning process, so I can't speak to what the extra costs are yet, but I should know more soon. One downside is that they have had 4 different on-site wedding coordinators since I started this process, and I have had to go through the details with each of them! However, we visited the resort labor day weekend 2007 and found it to be wonderful - the food and service was spectacular. If I can be of further help, please let me know.

The food was actually really good (for an AI) and the service was FANTASTIC. They seem to really want to build up their wedding buisness so they are willing to go the extra mile to make the day special. It's a bit scary to have a wedding at a place that has had so few weddings. Still its nice to hear all these positive things. There was also a robbery at one wedding over a year ago. That can happen anywhere but I think it really hurt their wedding program. Our main concern in the end is the lack of beach. We really want to get married on the beach. We will likely get married in Tulum and have our guests stay here.
