Adult only resort or not?

Recommended Posts

I'm interested in this topic because my finace wants adult only but I don't really care. I've been to both in the past and the kids dont really bother me.

 

Problem is I have a niece and nephew I would LOVE to have at my wedding and they are 7 and 5. I am being told that Sandals may not permit them to come onto the property even if it is just for the wedding. This would be in the Bahamas, so I'm not sure what we are doing?

 

I never minded a resort with kids though. We may go April vacation so adults only may be a good idea since thats when everyone goes on vacation.

My preference is for adults only, but i do have friends that have young kids. 


It was helpful to hear about the secrets experience as it is something I will have to keep in mine for guest who would be coming solo

We are able to strike the perfect balance.  We are going to have  the option for guests to stay at the Grand Sunset Princess (Mayan Riviera) and also the option of staying at the Adults only new hotel right beside it called the Platinum Yucatan Princess.  We are going to try to have some group events so people can hang out and bond as well.  The wedding will be held at the sunset part of the hotel so everyone can attend.

Many of our guests have children but we definitely opted for adults only - we want everyone to have fun without worrying about watching the kids! Doesn't seem to be much of a deterrent - they have already picked out babysitters :)

We reluctantly went with family friendly...We would have gladly gone adults only except it is our siblings who would be bringing kids. We think we'll only end up with 3 total kids on the trip, which hardly seems worth the sacrifice. But we'd be so sad if our siblings stayed at a different resort and missed all the fun.

We chose a family resort because we want SOME (not all... certain children are not being invited, sorry) of our guests so feel free to bring their family for a vacation. Turns out no one actually wants to bring their children lol, now i almost wish i chose and adults only. Talk to your guests before making a final decision about a family vs adults only resort

I have stayed at both.  We felt the adults only resort was a geriatric ward, but I think it's a hit and miss -- could have just been the week, you know?  We said we would probably never stay at another one!  

 

They also tend to be more expensive as you are paying for no children to be around.

 

I am in my mid 30's and my fiance is 40 and sometimes we wished to have some amusement from the drunk 20 year olds!   Also, we found the music wasn't as loud, it didn't play all day, and the entertainment lacked.  This was in Cuba and I haven't stayed at an adults only elsewhere so maybe it was only this resort?

 

For your wedding, just decide if you want kids or not. If you want NO kids 100% an adult only resort is a safe bet!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
