7 Resorts???? HELP!

Recommended Posts

My best advice is to work with a travel agent- (TA Jill from the forum specializes in Mexico) definately find one that specializes in destination weddings as it is completely different than booking a typical vacation. Each of those properties are great but very different in terms of wedding programs, pool/beach areas, amenities and ease of working with the wedding department.

 

I also do not put a lot of stock into the apple rating system- typically the resorts that they have preferred status with ( or they negotiated higher commission levels) get higher apple ratings than other equally good, if noit better properties! Don't get me wrong- we've sold Apple Vactions quite a bit, it's tha rating system that is not quite ........accurate.

 

Good luck !

If you have any opinions, facts, or any other information you would like to share, please do! I am going crazy. Two quick things. I don't really want to spend 7,000 on a wedding package and I'm keeping my guests in mind. I don't want their stay to exceed 2,500 dollars (per couple) if possible.

Here are my 7 picks: (I wish I had 2 or 3- this is why I need all of you)

Dreams Riviera Cancun Resort and Spa (Apple rating: 6 red)

Cancun Hacienda Tres Rios (6 red)

Cancun Barcelo Maya Palace (5+ gold)

Dreams Puerto Adventuras (6 gold-didn't look as nice as Dreams Tulum-went to Tulum last winter for a wedding)

Adventura Cove Palace (6 red)

Cancun Grand Velas All Suites and Spa Resort (6 red)

Cancun Azul Sensatori (can't remember apple rating)

 

Thanks for your help!

Congrats! I started with a list of 5 or 6 and just a couple of weeks ago decided on Dreams Riviera Cancun-- I know what you mean about choices, but I think I made a good one. Whatever resort you choose I am sure it will be great!

i agree with TA jennifer about working with a TA that specializes in destination weddings...picking a resort to have a destination wedding is way more complicated than trying to find a regular vacation resort.

TA jill is fantastic and also a cancun bride.

my 2 cents:
Dreams has a great wedding department as does Palace resorts. palace also offers free amenities when doing a group block (min. # of rooms are required).

Karisma Resorts (azul) does great weddings but I have had some issues with their level of customer service and some of their wedding policies so I chose to no longer book weddings with them...
