Thanks!! You too!

There were so many. I don't even remember anymore. We were looking for something specific and hopefully ME will be the right choice.

That was one of the things we really wanted. We wanted people to go and fully enjoy themselves and not worry about spending the additional money.

Hello,

 

I have really been leaning towards this hotel because I like the contemporary/trendy Miami flair and the majority of my guest are drinkers and like to party on an all-inclusive budget.  I also like that the resort is not adults-only so I can also incorporate kids into my ceremony.  I emailed the hotel, but have yet to receive a response regarding additional photos of weddings held there and specifics on type of alcohol provided in the packages and additional extras.  Has anyone received additional information?  There are limited posts on here or online period for this hotel.  The photos on their site and trip advisor are lovely though.

We are staying at the Me Cancun as we speak.  Here are my thoughts:

 

1.  Rooms:  Unless you upgrade to a junior suite, the vast majority of rooms do not have a balcony.  My guests would prefer a balcony if they are flying all the way to Mexico and staying on the ocean, but the upgrade to the junior suite is very spendy.  Something to think about for your guests.  Rooms themselves are nice and big enough.  Bathroom shower is a rain shower and it is great but the shower floor is not slanted properly toward the drain so the water does not drain properly and you have an inch of water after each shower.  Bathroom also has a hair dryer.  Lots of shelf space on the counter, a shelf above the counter and also below the counter in the bathroom.  Each room has a safe, flat screen tv and the mini bar.  We are unable to get messages off our phone as the instructions are in Spanish and the front desk has not returned our call to request that they assist us with this.  Beds are firm but much more comfortable than some in Mexico.

 

2.  Ceremony location:  Beach only.  They do have a lovely "arch" with tulle and flowers where the bride and groom get married, however, keep in mind that the sun goes behind all the high-rise hotels around 3:30 - 4:00 in February so if that is the time of year you are considering, then your wedding would be in a shadow.  Also, beach-goers will be right there watching the ceremony which doesn't make it very private.  We saw a wedding here so I was able to view that.

 

3.  Reception:  Outdoor reception is by the pool so again, not private.  The Beach House restaurant and swim up bar are nearby so the noise from those drinking in the pool is very loud and right near the reception site.

 

4.  Noise:  This is a VERY noisy hotel.  The doors and walls are paper thin and you can hear people showering in the room next door and when you walk down the hallway.  Also, some floors have open areas to the floor above/below so that noise filters down to the rooms near the elevators.  Also, people getting on and off the elevators can be heard in rooms near them.  The Rose Bar can get very noisy - we are on the 3rd floor and we can still hear the music which doesn't stop until 1:30 am.

 

5.  Food:  The food is very bland.  The crispy grouper at the Beach House is awful - it could be chicken, a pork chop, who knows inside of the 1/2 inch thick breading.  Breakfast buffet at Salt/Silk is ok but you really can't go wrong with fresh fruit and juice. 

 

6.  Location:  Very close to Senor Frogs, Margaritaville, Bubba Gump - all are within walking distance.  It is very close to La Isla mall - has Coach, Benetton, Nike, etc....and again easily within walking distance.

 

7.  Staff:  Very friendly and the concierge desk is very helpful for planning trips, excursions and where to find places.  Beware of staff wanting to show you the resort as they are obviously interested in selling you a timeshare.

 

8.  Beach:  Large beach, chairs are difficult to come by and no shade whatsoever until the sun is hidden behind the hotels.  Bali beds are for VIP guests only and some can be reserved for $100 per day.  Cigarette butts litter the beach even though they claim to be a nonsmoking resort.  Also, there is smoking throughout the hotel as well - rooms, lobby.  The only place I haven't encountered smoking are the indoor restaurants.

 

9.  All-inclusive:  Not really.  They say that the water, drinks and "dry snacks" are included in the mini-bar, however, only the very small bottles of water, small bottles of beer (never have I seen a beer bottle so small!), coke and sprite are part of the all-inclusive package.  Normal sized water, beer and ALL the dry snacks are extra.  Room service is $5 per person per use.  You have to sign a check at all restaurants for every meal where they include a section to tip.

 

Just some things to consider when thinking about your wedding venue options.  I hope this helps!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
