        We are also shooting for a DW in Riviera Maya. I love the look of Boutique hotels. Have you found any great deals yet?

          Elena, I am getting married in Riviera Maya in May - in Akumal. I just sent out 83 Save the dates and most of them are couples.. In Akumal there are a lot of small places to stay and awesome villas to rent. Also, Playa Del Carmen has smaller hotels you could rent out as well. Have fun searching. Oh, and my friend had their wedding at Ceiba del Mar which is gorgeous. It's all inclusive, but not huge at all. You may want to look at that if you are into the resort thing but don't want Large resort. contact me if i can help at all. I'm in beginning stages myself and we also have a large group planning on joining us. it's going to be a blast! Congrats to you.

            Hi Elena,

            Welcome to the board and congratulations!!

            Hmmm.... Mayan Riviera... boutique hotel for 170 ppl. That's a toughie! There are a lot of hotels in the Mayan Riviera area especially around Cancun and Playa Del Carmen, but I'm not sure if any of the boutique hotels could accomodate 170 easily. Have you thought about having a main hotel and then offering the option for guests to stay at a couple nearby hotels? There are lots of resources here on the board.

            Good luck, and congrats again!

                Hey everyone,

                Thanks so much for the welcoming messages! I have been considering contacting a TA but just wasn't sure if they could negotiate better terms than we could w/ the hotels directly (I previously reached out to a handful of wedding coordinators but they only referred me to the big resorts).

                Can any of you recommend TA's that have experience handling extra big groups?

                As for our search so far, unfortunately, the smaller hotels we've found have either (1) prohibitively high room rates for our guests (there is no way we can ask our guests to pay upwards of $400 a night!!!) or (2) not enough rooms!

                We are also considering an off-site location (including haciendas) but we havent found any so far that can fit so many people. We have our work cut out for us!
