Is anyone planning their wedding at either Iberostar Lindo or Maya? I have been going back and forth with Luz their WC and am getting frustrated. Does anyone know if they offer private receptions other than the 2 hour options listed on their information sheet? I am trying to compare the Iberostar resorts with EDR and seem to be getting nowhere. smile105.gif

They do offer private receptions. If I remember correctly, they offer a private reception in one of the bars for $500.

 

A bunch of us have considered the Iberostar resorts, but most of us changed our minds. There have been a couple brides who did site visits and I know the reason we changed our minds is because of the beach location for the wedding ceremony. It was crowded in between beach chairs and boat rentals, the decor looked really cheap and worn (like Wal-Mart cheap plants in the arch), and the last bride who visited said the walk from the resort to the beach is like a football field length and there was damage to the jungle right where the ceremony would be held.

 

I think I still have their package pricing and optional items price list. If you PM me your email address, I'll send it to you, if you'd like...

I was not thrilled by their beach wedding sites or decorations either. I am glad I am not the only one that thinks their arches and columns are cheap looking. I was considering a ceremony in their chapel. I like that they only schedule one wedding per day and that there are a few different resort options for our guests.

Yea, their chapel's are cute and I really liked the one wedding a day and various pricing options for the resort also for guests. The only thing to be careful about are exchange privledges between Lindo/Maya/Del Mar in the Paraiso complex. My understanding is that basically, if you have the wedding at the Lindo and stay at the Lindo, then your guests who stay at the Del Mar are not automatically allowed in the Lindo restaurants. Also, check with the WC on whether there would be a guest pass fee for Del Mar guests to attend your Lindo/Maya wedding.

 

I got your email---- I'll send you everything now. Look for an email from IFG.MCL0108---- that's the email we set up specifically for wedding stuff...

Hi, I'm that last bride that went there, lol. I met with Luz in person and did not feel confident with her. She seemed sort of timid and meek and like she didn't have many answers other than what was printed on her "schpiel" (sp?) sheet. I wrote a review of it under Riviera Maya Site Accommodations.

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
