    Hello there, just thought I would try and start posting more in this area of the forum. I have been trying to research any reviews I can find online in the Riviera Maya area. I have just started doing this today so I started with the hotel I am most interested in so far. Occidental Grand Xcaret. I found a nice review and thought I would post it.

    Posted on: 9:42 pm, January 05, 2005
    "Hi and CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!! My husband and I got married in November of 03 in Playa del Carmen. We stayed at the Grand Flamenco Xcaret by Occidental. It was beautiful!!!!!!!! The hotel, was probably one of the best all-inclusives. We did get the Royal Club rooms, which helped greatly with excellent service and better/fresh food. We are going to Cozumel at the end of May (May28- June4) and staying at the Grand Cozumel by Occidental. We loved the hotel that much, that we fully trusted the entire chain of Occidental hotels.

    I highly recommend getting married in Playa del Carmen. It will be our first time in Cozumel, so I can't provide any advice yet.

    I know weddings can be stressful, but the wedding coordinator (provided by the hotel) is great at planning everything. I hope I helped a little.

    Again, CONGRATULATIONS!"



    I also found a not so good review for a wedding at the Occidental Grand Xcaret, but the women who wrote the review hadn't even had her wedding yet and was basically just venting in regards to not being able to get in touch with the WC at the resort. I am not sure how close she was to her wedding date but I know that the WC's that the resorts have in Mexico seem to be a little laxadazel in returning e-mails ect. until the wedding date is pretty close. I will try and go back to see how far away she was from her wedding date.

      Ok, I found the review. She posted her review on Oct 6, 2006 and had a wedding date of March 2006, about 6 months away. I'm hoping that the WC isnt bad but maybe just not as attentive to Brides untill the wedding date is closer. I hope I hope I hope!

        Jackie,

        When I get back from Cabo, remind me to get you pics of this resort. I'm almost sure that is where our neighbors went on vacation. I can probably track down some pics for you.
        I get back the week of Nov 13th.

          Karla I would be so excited if you had any pics to share abouth this resort. Take your time though I'm sure you will be crazy busy after the wedding trying to get pics and put up reviews. I am like forever away from my wedding date and am in no rush.

            Jackie, with the amount of time before your wedding and the amount of research you do, you are going to have the most awesome wedding ever!

              Thanks Sarah, its so much fun. I really think I was meant to be extremely rich and do nothing but travel. I wonder if I have any relatives I can inherit millions from. I'll have to look into it. lol.

                Ha ha... I think the same way! I always think I was meant to travel the world!

                I know how it is when you can't find pics. This is one of the venues we looked at when we were still looking around Cancun/Cozumel area. We had decided on Cabo shortly before these neighbors went on vacation, that's why it rang a bell.

                Just remind me... I will be more than happy to track these down for you.
