    Hi everyone! I'm trying to decide bwtn Dreams Riv Cancun and Paradisus Riv Cancun ------- Any tips and help is appreciated! We hope to book our date this week (hoping for November) and this back and forth is killing me! We're inviting about 200 people and hope for 75 to show so we need a bigger resort and kid friendly (just in case).

    Ana at DRC got back to me with a little info but has not responded yet for a date availability or my question about a Jewish ceremony there.
    Is anyone on this having a Jewish ceremony there?

    Paradisus hasn't even answered my emails or RFP's this week and I might have to call tomorrow....any ideas what's going on?

    All info is appreciated!!!!!

      We are getting married at Dreams RC. I did a site visit and thought the resort was beautiful. Everything was so new and modern. We did walk down to Paradisus also. Just from the outside, Dreams seemed a little nicer but probably only because it was new. However, it is a pretty small resort. I think Paradisus is bigger. Though, if everyone books early, that might be kind of fun to know about 1/4 of the guests. I would just make sure they book early if you do go with Dreams RC. Good luck in your choice.

          So funny - FI and I are in the same debate b/t the same two resorts. I'm leaning toward Paradisus, although its more expensive for guests. It seems from the Dreams RC thread they're having some issues with pricing on the wedding. Everyone keeps telling me I'll feel better when we have a place and a date - which we will hopefully soon!

            Did they ever get back to you regarding having a Jewish wedding? I have asked this question to all the resorts I am looking at and not one has answered that question. Thanks.

              To answer your question about Jewish ceremonies in all of RM (and most of the East coast of Mexico) - the resorts themselves do not have Jewish officiants. They will refer you directly to the only Rabbi in the area, and you will have to contact him directly, however he only officiates Jewish (Non Interfaith) and he will requires Kosher food. Most RM brides import a Jewish officiant, if they wish to have a Jewish wedding.

                Dreams said they can bring in a Rabbi and Paradisus hasn't gotten back to me yet - either way, we are going to have a Jewish wedding and if we have to ship one in, we're going to do it.
