Looking for Cancun resort suggestions

Recommended Posts

I'm Tammy from Iowa and I'm looking to plan a destination wedding in Cancun for Fall 2010. I'm using this site for recommendations to all inclusive resorts in Cancun that offer a fun but romantic atmosphere that allows children (for my neices and nephews). My fiance and I might even visit Cancun beforehand to check out some places. We visited Cabo and loved it but would like a resort in Cancun with a swimmable beach. Looking forward to getting some good wedding ideas!

Well, I'm new to the whole "wedding planning thing", but I've been to Cancun about 24 times, so I feel I can answer lol!

 

You should try either Riu Palace Las Americas or Riu Cancun because, in all honesty, those are the only AI's I can think of that are on the "calm side" of the water: Cancun is shaped like a "7" and those resorts on the top of the 7 have calm waters, because the waves are blocked from Isla Mujeres a little across the way. So, I would start your search there popcorn.gif

I stayed at the Sun Palace (part of the Palace resorts and the only one that's couples only as far as I know) and we were very happy. It was my first time in Cancun so I don't know what other places offer but the pools and beach were great, they had "make your own pizzas" poolside and it was all-inclusive (complete with mini bar in the room). You could also go to other Palace resorts and eat at their restaurants as well as part of the all-inclusive if you want a change but we only ventured out to the Moon Palace by accident once on our way back from Tulum and the dinner was great! I highly recommend both Moon Palace (kind of far from the strip of hotels is the only drawback) and Sun Palace. Easy to get around as a cheap local bus went by every 5 min to take you shopping or more restaurants, bars, etc.

 

Sincerely,

 

Nora

We're having our wedding at Moon Palace next June and like you I needed a resort that was kid friendly. Moon Palace is away from the strip and that was a pro for us. The wedding sales coordinator told me that of all the Palace resorts in Cancun, Moon was the most family oriented and was away from the scene on the strip. When it comes down to it, I think it's about preference. There is a beach that you can swim at but because of its location seaweed tends to creep up. From what I'm told, it's cleaned daily and that many tend to stay by the pools anyways.

 

I hope that helps! Good luck to you =)

    • 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
