    Hi Everybody! My name is Michelle and I hoping for an April 2011 wedding. So far we've had our sights set on The Royal in Playa Del Carmen but haven't been able to get pricing. We're hoping it fits our budget! Does anyone have any suggestions for PDC locations? We will have 2 children at the wedding so the challenge is finding a family resort with an upscale feel that we can afford!

            We're going to the Royal Decameron in Panama,
            I've heard it's pretty upscale but kid friendly too.
            Separate adult pools and such but large enough that you can stay in "family friendly" areas.
            Just a thought.
            Good luck with your search!

                  Hi Michelle,

                  congrats on your engagment. I have just come back from my wedding in Jamaica, not sure if you are set on Mexico but in case you are open, I would highly HIGHLY suggest the Gran Bahia Principe in Runaway Bay Jamaica, we had 50 guests with us including children ages 6 months to 13 years and everyone loved it! We even had our own 9 year old with us and they gave us the honeymoon suite and made up a bed for her int he room. The prices were great with a group rate and the wedding day couldn't have been more perfect! AS I said not sure if you want to only do Mexico but if not, check out the Bahia, it was the time of our lives!

                  Good luck with everything and let me know if you need anything.

                    I've been to a Secrets and liked the feel. We're doing Dreams Riviera Cancun because it looks nice with a kid friendly atmosphere. Good luck!

                      congrats! it can be fun and a headache trying to choose a resort, take your time and do lots of research and work with a TA.

                      We chose The Royal PDC, the only thing is, it's adults only (though i think kids are allowed for the ceremony), The Gran Porto Real is right next door and is family friendly, in a great area of town.

                      Some hotels have 2011 pricing out already but is looking on the higher but my TA says to keep an eye out for reductions.

                      Good luck & Happy planning!
