I'm planning a February 2010 wedding in Cancun/Riviera Maya (just got engaged in May and am cutting it close, I know!). I had my heart set on the Riu Palace Riviera Maya and have a reservation there for Feb. 15, but am getting a lot of push-back from my family regarding the price and requirement that 80% of guests stay at the resort, so am restarting my search. The resorts in Cancun seem a little more reasonably priced, so may head up the coast. Anyone have suggestions for a beautiful but affordable resort in Cancun or Riviera Maya? I'd prefer a European plan for guests and the resort has to be family-friendly. Thank you!!!
I also had to be very careful of the resort rates so that guests would be able to attend. I narrowed my search down to Riu Playacar, Sandos Playacar, and Barcelo Maya Beach. Riu and Barcelo are in compounds that have nicer hotels in them, but we are looking at the more budget friendly ones. They are older and have less options for food, but I would rather have everyone able to attend. I did a lot of looking on tripadvisor.com to find budget resorts that had good reviews. Also, I ruled out a few that had less than stellar reviews of how good the beach was. Good luck with the planning and welcome to the forum.
