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 fianc©/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.

1. I chose Secrets Maroma because I thought the hotel looked nicer and the Royal always looked so crowded.
2. I thought Secrets looked modern and it's only a year old.
3. I would def get in touch with Wedding Destinations and Planning | Destination Weddings .com though because they saved us so much time and work. Our planner has relationships with the hotel wedding planners which makes communication faster. The wedding planners in Mexico get so bogged down with all of the bride emails, but the destinationwedding people can pick up the phone and call them if need be.
