Here are some resorts I looked at: Azul Sensatori, Aventura Spa/Cove Palace (they have a family and adults only side), any of the Palace resorts, Excellence, Secrets resorts...there are tons!!! I was SO indecisive about my resort.

 

You can perform a search on this forum and find pretty much anything you need to know. Also, you can look on Trip Advisor and search "Riviera Maya" to give you a list of the resorts. Hope this helps!! Good luck!

Wherever you go, make sure you look at the prices of wedding packages before you decide on a resort. Even though you are going to an all inclusive, the prices for things like champagne toasts, beach receptions, etc can be HUGE. Our resort wants $20 US for a toast!! it's a little annoying, the way they rip you off

 

Good luck though, it'll be a blast no matter where you go

I would recommend where I got married! :)

The Gran Bahia Principe was a perfect fit for our guests and it is usually very reasonably priced.

all inclusive - Indeed! I LOVED the food! Yummy

all ages - We had children with us, actually two babies who were 1 1/2 years old and they LOVED it. The pools actually have a shallow area that they could sit and play in. It was perfect! In addition, they have a kids area and lots of animation staff that love children! It really was prefect for the kids.

beach wedding (actually on the sand) - My feet were IN the sand during my wedding! It was amazing! And it wasn't a swimmable portion of the beach, so there were NO bikini clad people staring at me and in all of my photos. Instead it was on the beach with the beautiful blue water crashing on the rocks in front of us. Perfect, if you ask me :)

around $1500-$1600 for couple 4 days - The GBP is typically around this price including airfare. There are three resorts, (Tulum, Akumal, Coba), and Coba tends to be the cheapest because it's NOT on the beach, however you can use the facilities at all three, so it's not a big deal.

There are so many great resorts on the Riviera Maya that would fit the bill! If the price is really important, maybe you should talk to a travel agent. They could probably narrow it down to the ones in that price range. Once you have a short list you could check out all the reviews and photos to see which one you like the bestcheers.gif

There are SO MANY great resorts to choose from so I agree that you need to consider the cost of the wedding in addition to the cost of the actual stay at the resort. Some places can really add up, especially depending on how many guests you are planning to have.

Since there are so many choices, you will either need to really narrow down what you want and don't want (i.e. location, size of resort, restaurant options, wedding facilities, etc, etc). Or maybe you will just see one and fall in love - that would make things so much easier right?! I struggled with my choices for what seemed like a freaking eternity! So hopefully your decision will be easier :)

If you are looking for a family friendly resort, Dreams has a great reputation for holding fantastic weddings (and being a great place to stay!). Also, as other posters have mentioned, I've heard good things about the Gran Bahia Principe.

Good Luck!!!

That happened for me! I saw a resort and fell in love! Then I saw another resort...and fell in love...then another resort...and another...

(No I haven't made a decision on my own resort, but Yes, I will totally offer other people advice!) humble.gif

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
