The Royal, Secrets Moroma or Le Blanc????
Posted 28 March 2010 - 09:01 PM
This is my first post! My fianc© and I have been engaged since Dec 10 and have decided to have a destination wedding! I started out planning for one of the Sandals resorts in St Lucia, but we have decided that Mexico will be more affordable for our guests. I am experiencing the same frustration as others in my search because the 2011 rates are not out yet. Can anyone please give me some info or experiences that you have in dealing with the 3 resorts that I have selected....
The Royal - Which resort is nicer Cancun or Playa De Carmen?
Secrets Maroma Beach
I just found this site and it has already been so helpful! I look forward to learning more!

I have had 3 areas we are focusing on and waiting on rates.
I just want to get it decided on. So many options.
WE are interested in Sandals-La Toc, D.R.-Iberostar and Paradisus, and in Mexico-Secrets Maroma,Iberostar, and El Dorado.
All have different things I love.
Now sorry for rambling, I think we too are going to illiminate St. Lucia even though its my number 1. We anticipate 60 plus guests and all from all over.
So now we are focusing back on D.R. and Mexico.
I wanted to let you both know we got engaged at the Royal and I loved it.
I have done many all inclusives before and this by far the best SERVICE and food.
Im huge on service and I was very impressed. The food was fantastic as well. All the restaurants had great service and were like 5 course meals. I did not see a wedding there but the resort itself was amazing. They did a really good job to cater to us. I was impressed. So now im reasearching these other 2 in mexico and wondering the same thing. FEedback from brides. LEt me know if you know any more on secrets or iberostar.
Have a great evening! Christy

Anyhow, i've been to both The Royal in Playa and Cancun. The Royal Cancun has a new beach now, haven't seen it in person yet but judging from website photos it looks A LOT better than it was when I went.
I can't say enough good things about the service at both properties! I personally preferred Playa as it is not in the Cancun "Hotel Zone" where there are hotels all in a row...Hard Rock Cafe, La Isla Mall (complete with Zara, Starbucks and Nike), Bubba Gump are also in the area.
Fifth Ave is steps away from RPDV and so much fun! Clubs, bars, shops and $35 massages =)
PS: If you decide on the Royal, have yourself a Mango Tango!

Im reading the reviews I have to state that I have been to both cancun and Playa Del carmen. I have not been to the Royal in cancun BUT the Royal in Playa like stated above is literally a 2 min. walk for your guests to a town of sooooo much to offer.
If you want variety for your guests and yourself to leave the resort and explore, you couldnt be in a better WALKING area. Its not as congested as cancun, a bit nicer, classier, and I really recommend it. I have pictures if you want to see, email me.
It really is fabulous. One of my best friends got married a year ago about 30 min. drive and we cabbed it into playa bc of all the action and fun.
Really good shopping, exploring,close to cozemel if your guests want to go to the island, and or coure great bars and nightlife. Checkout the Blue Parrot, amazing! If I had my pick of areas 100% would say Playa Del Carmen over Cancun but that is me. Good luck and let me know if I can help. This resort was really fantastic and in a prime location...

I second that. The fire dancers at the Blue Parrot are wicked!! We got there early and literally were feet from the performance. We also hit up Coco Bongo's on the same night out and Liverpool Dpt Store for shopping. All terrific!
