      I don't think you can go wrong either way! There's a ton of great info on the forum to help you decide. We picked the Royal because of the great reviews, proximity to Playa del Carmen and the beautiful beach reception. Keep us posted about which resort you choose!

                      Congratulations and welcome to the forums! We have shot weddings at all 3 resorts and they each have good and "bad" points. It all depends on you and your guests needs and wants for your wedding and their stay here in the Mayan. Feel free to send us a message if you have any particular questions about these resort. I will leave you with this section of information we have for all our brides.


                      One of the most important things we'd like to stress about a resort is SIZE. Resorts in the Cancun/Mayan Riviera area range from about 60 rooms to 1000.

                      ~ On one hand, the smaller resorts offer close proximity to all resort amenities.

                      This can have a positive impact on the schedule of your wedding day. Smaller resort means the SPA will probably be within walking distance to your room. No time spent waiting for transportation. Your time is important as you prepare for the big day!! In addition to the preparations, the planned wedding activities (ceremony, cocktails, reception & dance) are also likely within walking distance from each other. This is a big bonus for you and your guests, especially if you have older family attending your wedding. Grandma and Grandpa are sure to appreciate a resort where they can get around on their own.

                      Aside from the wedding day, the smaller resorts are group friendly in the sense that you will find family and friends wherever you go on the resort. Consider that your guests may be coming from all over the world. You will be able to maximize your time together with friends & family that you cannot otherwise see very often.

                      We have also found they are able to accommodate your needs quicker and easier. There are fewer hotel guests and weddings for the staff to deal with, which from our experience, means they are more available when you need them.

                      ~ On the other hand, larger Resorts offer more space and selection.

                      Some brides decide to go with mega resorts to give everyone countless options when it comes to restaurants, beaches, etc. The resort premises has plenty to offer. Regardless of your guests varying preferences, they are sure to find something that works for them.

                      And the obvious, space. If you decide on some alone time with your fiancĀ©/newlywed, there is plenty of space for you two to "get away", enjoy the view, sand in your toes and just relax.

                      With regards to the wedding, since these resorts are usually 3 to 5 interconnected resorts, you will likely have more options when it comes to selecting a wedding site and reception restaurant.
