The resorts that will allow you to bring your bottles (you have to check before hand) will charge a corking fee. You have to check the fee, it's usually different for wine, liquor and champagne. Even with the fee it was still much less expensive than through the hotel.
I also checked the Walmart and the little winery in front of the Walmart in Playa del Carmen, but preferred the choice at La Europea.

We got married on August 6th and we were really worried about the wine and champagne issue.
At our resort the costs of these were 3 and 4 times more expensive than normal costs in Spain, where I am from.
We did not want to pay that but we certainly knew we did not want to go with the awful wine house! Our resort did not charge a corking fee, but if the hotel had it, we would have go on with the idea of having good wine.
Plus, there was other bride that got married at the same resort several months before me, and she had the same issue. She decided to buy the wine at a supermarket and she had bad luck as she said it was awful.
I found thourgh this site a wedding planner based at Playa del Carmen, Yazmin de la Mora. She was great and we were really happy to find her!! She provided us a long list of wine and (French) champagne. We booked the bottles and we received them at the resort. We decided Yazmin gave them to us the same day of our meeting with our resort planner, so our planner had the bottles.
We took a look at all the bottles to see they were right, and they were perfect.
It was super easy to work with her and she answered me promptly. She is a very good professional and I really advice her.
I repeat, for us having good wine and French champagne was really important and everything was perfect at our reception.

Wow - great story, Carlota 1981, so glad your wedding wine was what you wished for! It's also great to hear what an excellent job Yazmin did for you....Thanks so much for sharing! It's sure to help lots of other brides here too - Cheers!
We'd love to see some photos of your wedding when you get them
