Resorts to Avoid
Posted 06 January 2010 - 12:24 PM
My fiance and I have decided that the Mayan/Cancun/Playa del Carmen area is where we want to get married and we have looked at so many places and have narrowed down the list a bit, but we're having a hard time narrowing the list further. I was wondering if anyone has heard of any Resorts that we may want to avoid just in case they are still on our list. Maybe I haven't read enough on the forum yet, but it seems most people are pretty happy with the choices that they have made. Any help would be much appreciated.

I hope I helped at least a little. I loved about 10 resorts and finally settled on one based upon those things.

I know a few, if anyone else would like to expand or correct...
1. All of the El Dorado ($500 and 3 night stay of vendor)
2. Azul resorts ($500 and 3 night stay of vendor)
3. The Royal PDC (not sure how much, they just hopped on this bandwagon)
4. Barcelo Maya ($500 and 3 night stay of vendor)
5. Palace Resorts - do not allow outside vendors
I think the other girls are right though, it is a personal thing what will be prioritized.
Some common things I hear as priorities are:
Price in general
Price for guests
Geographic location - travel effort for guests or simply the vibe of the area, think Cancun v/Tulum...totally different.
Adults-only or family-friendly
Level of privacy for ceremony/reception
How many weddings are performed p/day
"High Heel" friendly &/or appearance of gazebo
% of guests that MUST stay at the resort
Quality of the beach (seaweed heavy, rocky or the other end...Maroma-style)
Activities in the area
That's all I can think of off the top of my head.
Good luck hunting for a location! I'm right there with ya

The Royal was an option for me until I found out it was Adults Only. My MOH is going to bring her daughter with her, so it's important I have family friendly. I think the Sandos Playacar has a beautiful beach wedding setup, it kept pulling me back. A friend of mine is getting married at Grand Sunset Princess resort, which looks awesome. I have previously stayed in Puerto Aventuras and LOVE the area, so I chose a resort right next door to where I have already been. I'm not sure it if is fantastic that we have SO MANY amazing resorts to choose from, or if it's just a headache! It took me 5 months to choose. Good luck and let us know if you need any help.
