    Hi everyone! My fiance and I love the look of the Blue Tulum hotel, but have not found any reviews on the place. Has anyone had there wedding here, or does anyone plan to have their wedding here?? We are in discussions with WC and will be planning a site visit, but I would love to hear your thoughts on the hotel! Thanks :)

      Hello,

      We are having our wedding at Blue Tulum this April, 2010 and highly recommend it. It is a small, intimate size with personalized attention-much more than I was receiving as I looked at other resorts on the Riveria Maya. Angelina is their wedding coordinator and has worked with us to make the weekend perfect for us and our friend and family.

        I wasn't married there, but I've visited a few times and have begun negotiations to coordinate weddings there. They are mentioned in my own wedding review (link in my signature) as well as on our scouting trip review:

          Thank you! Indigo82 - are you doing a site visit? We are heading down in April for ours and I am curious to know if you had the chance to personally try out the food, meet with Angelina (she seems great!), stay in the rooms, etc. If so, I would love to hear your thoughts on how it went! Also, what made you choose this hotel over others that you were considering?

            Hi Kristine,
            We did a site visit to Blue Tulum and Dreams Tulum last July and right away knew Blue Tulum was the best choice for us because it is more intimate, we got personal attention from Angelina (she waited for us in the lobby until we arrived off our flight at 9pm on a Saturday night). We liked that instead of choosing from a package, we could pick out our own flowers, menu, etc. We had planned to visit two more boutique resorts closer to Cancun, but after the great service and beautiful location, we chose Blue Tulum. The only drawback is its distance from the Cancun airport, so we are arranging group shuttles for our guests. We are getting married on April 24, 2010 and Angelina will probably offer you a discounted rate to do a site visit. My website is Ingrid Jones & James Hallar if you want to see photos of our visit.

              hi again!

              can i ask who you are using for your wedding photographer? the hotel recommended a few people, but i am curious who you are working with.

              thanks!

                Hi,

                I have recently shot a wedding at the Blue Tulum Resort. What best to give you an idea of the location than have a look at a photo-gallery on my blog: Wedding at the Blue Tulum Resort - Mexico .

                I hope that will give you ideas for your own wedding.

                    WOW Elizabeth, those are some sexy wow shots. I love this place too... Although we didnt get married there, we would for certain go there for a vacation / give a thumbs up recommendation for the wedding there.

                    In addition, Angelina Cardenas, the groups and wedding coordinator has been more than helpful and exceptionally organized for all of our events there.

                    We have a few weddings under our belt there. I think viewing slideshows from multiple photographers and different setups is the WAY TO GO to visualize the location.

                    Here is a few from the del Sol world of photography...

                    Nicole+Jim - Photos by Matt & Sol
                    Some real cool fire-show stuff from this wedding...also, the emotional exchanges between the Nicole and Jim as she walked down the isle...some of our very best expressions captured on this one!


                    Vanessa + Marius - Photos by Vincent

                    Michelle+Kevin -Photos by Vincent (Getting ready at Blue Tulum)


                    In a few weeks, we are going to stay in the hotel for several nights. I'm pretty sure we are bringing the cameras. We will be shooting sunrises, sunsets, and the entire property for a more thorough set of imagery to combine with our current folio. The idea = more photo of the place, better for brides to virtually visualize what is happening here!

                    happy planning!
