I recently stayed at the Royal in May as I was doing my scouting and it is a beautiful resort but I will say - the weddings are not entirely private. I have some pics at home that I will send you later of a wedding going on while I was there. The wedding ceremony was just in front of the main pool and bar area so all of the people who had been drinking all day were shoved against the end of the pool watching the ceremony. Nothing wrong with that - but people can be noisy sometimes and they were hooting and hollering at the bride as she walked by (alcohol tends to highten the lungs). For that reason, I chose against having my wedding there as I want something more private.
They do the same thing with the outside massages - they are right in front of the pool and restaurant so everyone can see you as your trying to relax.
But - I still can't say enough about how great the service was and how beautiful the resort is. Gorgeous rooms! Highly recommend getting the swim up suites so you can guarrantee yourself a lounger and pool floatie.

If anyone who has stayed at The Royal in Cancun or has had their wedding there has any suggestions or photos, they would be greatly appreciated!! The resort's website looks beautiful, but I would love to see some photos from guests who have stayed there.
My assigned wedding coordinator is Katia Nunez, if I decide to book it. I am just apprehensive about one thing...the beach isn't private. I would assume most people would be respectful of a wedding ceremony and stay out of the pictures, but I'm still nervous. Did anyone experience this at their wedding?
Again, and advice would be great! Thanks!!
