Hey Ladies, while doing some resort research I came across the Now Riviera Cancun. The resort is about 1 year old. It also seems very reasonable in price. Has anyone heard of this resort or had a wedding here? I am going for a site visit next month so I can let everyone know what I find!

Hi Carly, we just got engaged at the NOW Riviera in February- we liked it so much, we decided to get married there this November! It's beautiful, the food is amazing, and the staff is INCREDIBLE!

Hi Carly!

 

I am also considering having my wedding at the NOW. We went there in October and it was very nice. Trip Advisor has mixed reviews but we really enjoyed it. We have stayed at the Dreams Tulum before too and it was comprable to that. The only thing I didn't like about the NOW was that their room service menu wasn't the greatest but that really isn't a big deal. Let me know if you want me to send you some pics of the resort! My email is brownwedding2011@gmail.com

Hi Ladies!

After consideration of many resorts in the Riviera Maya area, I have put a reservation on May 7, 2011 at Now Jade Riviera Cancun. It does get excellent reviews on tripadvisor, expedia, etc. There have been some minor complaints, such as waiting long at restaurants, some say weak drinks, some say not enough nightlife. But, hey, every place is going to have some complaints. The main reason I chose it was because it is a good value for the guests, the place has a modern decor and appears to have been recently updated, and the venues for the wedding ceremony and reception look great. I have been working with Jill from Sand and Sun Vacations, whom I found here, and she has been great. I can't wait to hear what you guys think after your site visits. I think we'll be making one in August.

I just found Now in my research this week and i loved how affordable it seems for all the amenities it seems to have. I am working with Jill too, and we were also looking for a late april/early may 2011 wedding. Keep me updated when you start finding out more about the wedding packages at the Now.

Hi,

I know that the Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun used to be the Paradisus Rivieria Cancun (they bought the hotel on May first) so if you are looking for information about that one you can go over to the Paradisus Thread (although we are all sort of in the dark with the hotel changing over a lot of things are changing). Not sure if this helped, but I thought I'd try.

Thanks ktchi, that does help. I'll check that out. I can't even find a website for them...just reading reviews on tripadvisor and expedia. Im relying on my TA to hopefully provide the info I need.

    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations.
