Newbie Trying to pick a resort in Mexico

Recommended Posts

Hi Brooke,


You do have some beautiful places to select from. A lot depends on your budget and what you want.


I had the opportunity to visit with many of the venues this past December. We stayed at the Barcelo Maya Place and they offer anything you or your guests may want. They have five different price levels, but each one is beautiful! They have a lovely gazebo as well as beach front sites.


One of the things we got to participate in was a Maya Wedding. The bride arrived via canoe from the ocean then the ceremony was performed on the beach, followed by the reception on the beach. It was really beautiful. This is something each of the venues do with some variations.


The Grand Palladium in Riviera Maya was lovely.Fiesta Hotel Group: The Royal Suites, Palladium Resorts, Fiesta Hoteles, Fresh Apartamentos, Ayre Hoteles - Información, Reservas y Ofertas

Real Resorts Mexico|Real Resorts Cancun| Real Resorts Playa del Carmen|Luxury Hotels in Mexico the Royal in Cancun


Be sure to check out Dolphin Discovery for a great experience. Swim with Dolphins at Dolphin Discovery on Mexico and the Caribbean.


Another place to consider is Campeche. This is a very authentic Mexican experience, beautiful and not as well known.Campeche


Hopefully this will help. If you need further assistance such as coordinators in that area, please let me know and I'll be glad to give you some names. However, you might want to work with someone from the US to be there with you as well so you don't have to worrry about anything.

I am considering having my wedding at the NH riviera, but since it is a catholic wedding I'd have to go to puerto morelos' chapel, have you worked for any wedding there? I'd love to see some samples and to have your quotes for a session this summer, including shoots of the party, getting ready, etc. Thanks a lot

Welcome to the BDW! You will find lots of helpful information here about Mexico. We are getting married at Moon Palace in July....so I am partial. However, I've heard a lot of fabulous things about Dreams.


Good luck!

Welcome! As a local I can just tell you that you will be having a great time in any of the resorts. Dreams Riviera is just a bite more upscale than NH for my taste and have plenty of areas for private events....and I love their special gazebo.

    • 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.
