    HI,

     

    I'm planning a wedding for the Mexico Riviera Maya area. I am a people pleaser and I want everyone to have a good time. My sister is coming with 4 kids all under the age of 8!! So i'm looking for a family friendly resort and maybe something that can accomadate a family of 6!! No luck so far. But i also dont' want it to be too family that all the single or older people that are coming can't stand it lol. I'm a little worried about HUGE resorts, I don't know how it is but I would like to be able to hangout with everyone during the day. But there is some people in my family that it would be good if it was big so (newly divoroced parents) didn't run into each other all day. I'm spinning around in circles here.. I need some suggestions please!!

    Hi! First off welcome to the site and congratulations on your upcoming wedding. You sound alot like me...anyways needing to make sure are taken care of first. We have a number of kids attending as well. So it made picking a spot a little tricky.

    We had our choices narrowed down to:

    1) Dreams Tulum

    2) Barcelo Palace

    3) Azul Sensatori

     

    There are plenty more, but this is what our short list was. We ended up choicing the Azul, because of it's great food and size of resort (only 440 rooms). They also have a family suite (but I think it is a maximum of 5).

     

    I would suggest coming up with a list of what you need and want. (food, kids club, swimming pools, disco, etc.) Then narrow it down to a top 5 resort list, and check general prices for the time of your wedding. This was a huge factor for us and our guests. From there narrow it down to 2 or 3, and request a group rate from a TA (if you'll have 10 guests or more). Good luck and feel free to ask questions, there are so many helpful people on this site.


    Married my best friend on January 24, 2011 at Azul Sensatori! :wub:

      Congratulations!  You're going to have a blast planning your destination wedding and this forum is amazing!  We have guests from toddlers to seniors coming down for our wedding in October.  We chose the Gran Bahia Principe Akumal.  We're really happy we chose a large resort that has something for everyone.
