I had it finally narrowed down to Dreams Riviera Cancun and Aventura Spa Palace- the thing I did not like about Aventura is that it is located on a lagoon- not actually ON the beach. Also- Dreams is fairly new as it was just opened in Oct 2009. I used Trip Advisor A LOT to see peoples resposes and photos (not just the resort's photos). I am also using a wedding planner/travel agent from destinationweddings.com. You pay $50 and they help TREMENDOUSLY!! They help with all your decisions and then work as your and all your guests travel agents! (and once you book your hotel and etc- you get the $50 back)
I am still not 100% sure on all the prices- but you will find once you book that all the people down there are on their own time. They do not answer emails like we do-- they take a few days and they will drive you crazy!! So the earlier you can jump on it, the better! Let me know if I can help you anymore!
I'm actually in the process of signing up with one of the TAs on this site...I think we are definitely going to need it!! Thank you so much for your thoughts...it's always good to hear why another bride choose her resort

We are not honeymooning in MX. We decided to fly to Miami and take a cruise from there!
I have a great TA in Greensboro that I love if anyone is looking.

Got a wild hair this morning & decided to see how many NC brides were on here. I'm getting married at Excellence Punta Cana in December. Nice to 'meet' ya'll!

I am looking to have an AHR (more like an AHP - at home party), so I will need to try and find a location for that this fall. I am hoping to put the AHP date on the STD so there are no excuses :-)
