      We just scheduled a site visit in July since I really wanted to take some more pictures and taste the food choices. If there's anything specific someone wants a picture of let me know :)

        Hey girls... I'm getting married there in 2 weeks. I'll be more than happy so share my experience and pictures. I'm having a beach ceremony so I won't have any pictures of the us in the gazebo but I can still get some to show. If any of you want any specifics just tell me or PM me and I will try my best while I'm down there. :)

          Oh how exciting!!!! We LOVE The Royal Cancun and I think the beach ceremony is the "prettiest".....my only concern is that noone can wear shoes (including me) So I guess it's just barefeet for all?

          If I want to wear high heels, I'll do the Gazebo at The Royal or next door at The Gran Caribe.

          The two gazebos look exactly the same, but The Royal's gazebo has a very "public" walk-up. There are lounge/cabanas all stacked up right until the gazebo entrance. So bride walks down an "aisle" w/ a bunch of beach/pool peeps on either side.

          Can you let me know if the Gran Caribe's Gazebo is similar? (if you pop over there. When we stayed at The Royal, we walked over next door via the beach to check out the sister resort)

          thanks!

            This is not the best picture but there's a terrace area in front of the Gran Caribe gazebo -http://www.flickr.com/photos/callamonster/4365839783/in/set-72157623332058385/ Here's another view of the terrace area without the gazebo - IMG_1178 on Flickr - Photo Sharing! These are from a balcony at the Royal. I know it's not super helpful but at least you can see it a little!

              I just got "fancy" flat sandals. I thought about going barefoot (and I still might) it just depends on how hot the sand is. Trust me, I love shoes and heels and I will miss being able to wear them but my whole point was I'm going down to Mexico to be on the beach. I can get married in a gazebo at home. I wanted my feet in the sand. Everyone has their own opinions and preferences, but I couldn't imagine not being married ON the beach.

              I will definitely try my best to take pics of both gazebos for you! All of my guests are staying at the Gran so I'm sure I'll be over there a lot! :) Let me know if you want me to check out anything else.

                  hi, i'm getting married this next weekend at the gran porto in playa, but just popped in here to see what's happening over on the island! :)

                  if you want to wear heels AND have a beach wedding, you totally can do that! just get a piece of wood where you'll be standing and cover it just enough with sand, and voila! you get to have the added height of heels and be standing "in" the sand. as far as walking through the sand to get there (or down the aisle), i haven't heard an answer, but hopefully that helps with one part of the problem!

                    So - I can't find any info or examples of the photography QUALITY and LOOK w/ the package.

                    May I ask who your photographer/videographer is? Did you go with outside vendor cuz the resort photographer isn't good enough?

                    thanks!
                    in case you're still looking, here's the info i received for the resort photographers:
