Welcome and good luck! We are getting married at the Lindo which is immediately adjacent to the IB Maya and shares the same pool, etc. Can't wait to hear your review! In particular, I'm interested in hearing what you think of the restaurants/venues that you can have a private reception there.

We are going in July to do our site visit. I know we are doing things backwards, book our resort and then site visit, but such is life. This way at least we will be able to pick out our reception venue, menu, flowers, etc. and not have to worry about a thing the week of our wedding.

Have a great trip! Safe travels!

Hi everyone, just wanted to share that I am going to the Royal Decameron March 26-April 2, 2011. She has been very great to work with thus far and has answered my many emails. I dont have the final quote yet however the initial pricing info has been reasonable.

I also have lots of information about the Resort and have been in communication with the wedding coordinator.

Happy Planning!

i hope so too! so far from what I've seen on the resort's site isn't pretty...but hopefully as time passes the numbers will start to go down.

we'll all be keeping our eyes peeled!

I had a look at the prices that came out yesterday here in the UK - cause as you know we work slightly different - we get a brochure the brochure states the price and thats pretty much what you pay! The brochures were for summer 2011 which run from April 2011 - October 2011. Wanted to get an idea of a cheap week away in about September 2011 that we could make our 'honeymoon' as all the family will be with us for our 2 weeks in Mexico. But looking at the prices there was only an increase on this year of about 2-3% across the board; so fingers crossed any of the UK brides booking wont have heart failure at the look of the prices. If its anything like when i booked i had to become quite the demanding bridezilla demanding to know if people were definately coming or not as we got 10% discount if we did a group booking - this was the most stressful part for me. lol!

Sorry ladies.... Im here, Im here!!!! Didnt come on last night as FI and i were working out expences etc, Not booked yet as im being cheeky at the mo and getting prices from 3 travel agents, Thomas Cook, Thomsons & First choise... we want to haggle as much as can with them all and see who comes in the cheapest!!! Looking at booking as soon as we can really but not before we try to knock em down a bit if we can..... The prices are about £700 cheaper than we were quoted for April 2011 so really really happy we have waited for May :-) Just got one or two more questins i need to ask TA's 2moz then hope to finalize things in our own mind over the weekend....
ARGH..... IM SO EXCITED, Things are starting to happen now.... :-) xox
