    I know we want to get married in mayan riviera and I know children need to be allowed to come as we have 2 but there are SO many options. Already loving the help I am getting from reading all the threads. Thanks for all the advice in advance :)

          Welcome to the forum, and congrats on your engagement! :) There are SO many options in RM. The best advice I can give you is to NOT consider every single one of them or you WILL go insane! Make a list of what's important to you (large or small resorts, price range, family friendly, etc) and then get a TA who can advise you on the best resorts to match your criteria.

            hi SummerDawn!

            I completely understand how you feel. I felt the same way a month ago. We are going to have a small wedding with on child....so it had to be a resort that allowed kids. We ended up picking Dreams Riviera Cancun. I liked that they had premium alcohol a swimup bar, no reservations for the restaurants and a heated pool. Also the rooms look pretty and the beach looks nice. They have a fb page if you want to check it out.

            To help you decided I would call a couple different travel agents and get their opinions. Also I looked on expedia just to look at hotel pics and then went to trip advisor and read TONS of reviews. It was a lengthy process but worth it!!! good luck to you:)

                  I agree, picking the resort is completely the hardest part! I really had trouble deciding on a location but for me it came down to the wedding packages that the hotel had to offer. The Riu chain is great in terms of for families and they have great wedding packages....so far no complaints anyway.

                  Good luck!
