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.

    • I agree that you should have your ceremony at the time that you and your FI want and I think it's great that you are taking the comfort level of your guests into consideration pertaining to the heat.  customer survey
    • Had anyone traveled with their wedding dress on JetBlue? If so can you tell me how you did it? I leave 9/23 and I’m still lost on what I’m doing. I bought a vacuum seal bag but I’m iffy about using that. TIA
    • Hello, has anyone recently gotten married at Le kliff? so far our planning experience hasn’t been the best, does anyone have any recent experience with getting married there? 
    • Hi I’m about to book my wedding and wonder if anyone has recently got married at RUI Ocho Rios? Would anyone has the prices for extras please? We are going to book the top package but we need to add extra people as we have 50 guests. we also want to have an after party after the reception - any ideas on the timings for it or prices please? We have emailed the hotel but can’t seem to get any answers until we pay deposit. Which we have just done at Bahia Principe to find out after they won’t allow us to have a reception past 9:30pm even though they said we could at a cost of $300 usd per half hour prior to booking and paying our deposit. We where prepared to pay this even thought it is very expensive plus DJ and bar costs.    we are nervous to book and pay another deposit now incase we are in the situation. We are already paying hundreds of pounds to amend our guests bookings too.    any advice is greatly appreciated please.   thanks  Sam sjpulfer18@hotmail.co.uk
