Last minute second thoughts...

Recommended Posts

Ok so its not LAST minute because I am still months away from the wedding, but FI and I are thinking we should make sure this is the hotel of our dreams before we sign a contract next week. We picked the Occidental Xcaret because we love the tropical feel of a bright colored hotel that was more low key and kind of intimate... I'ts kind of hard to put into words.

 

I guess what we really want is a non-hotel hotel... more like villas, low buildings (3 floors or less) and lots of trees and flowers. BUT we need a hotel that can hold our (potentially) 150 guests AND it has to be an AI

 

Can you girls give me a run down of the fav hotels that match that description in the riviera maya area? Urgh, I hate how I can never make a decision...

Well, I would say if you have any degree of un-sureness, to postpone signing the contract. If you want to explore other options, pre-contract is the time! I don't know much about the particular area, but I'm sure some of the other ladies can help you out. did you do a site visit??

I'd also recommend doing a site visit if you haven't already. Martin and I did one to our first choice in June and decided it wasn't for us - SOOOO glad we went beforehand!!!!!! Now we're looking at doing a second site trip in August to the opposite coast of Mexico, in PV (Dreams). (We originally started out in RM at the Iberostar resorts) If for whatever reason that doesn't work out, we'll probably have to take another (super short) site visit somewhere else. But I'm really hoping that this is the one!!! We're also checking out Las Caletas while we're in PV.

 

It does make a really good excuse to travel! cheesy.gif lol

Have you checked tripadvisor and read all the reviews for that resort? I picked my resort solely on the reviews from that site....

Well, I'm an advocate for the Gran Bahia Riviera Maya resorts... but that's just based off of internet searching and friend's recommendations. But, it sounds like your resort already fits all of your requirements. Perhaps you do need a site visit though.

Greetings from the Riviera Maya!!

 

Well, all the hotels in the RM supposed to be built in no more than 3 floors but if you like the "villas type" you can go have a look at the "Xpu-ha" which is in the middle of lots of nature...

 

Best Regards...

    • 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.
