EDR -- Tucanes location for reception?

Recommended Posts

Who has been there or seen this location?

 

Needing some help visualizing it as the feedback we're getting from Valeria on what we can or can't do is a bit odd. We're having a 2 hour cocktail with tall tables and appetizers. Then a 2 hr dessert buffet.

 

We're wanting to set it up for music and dancing. Our plan was scatter tables around the periphery of the pool for the cocktail hour. Arrive a half hour into the reception with our wedding party. Start with our first dance, mother-son, etc... Get into everyone dancing by the time they bring out the desserts. Sounds liek the "dance floor" is uncovered near the palapa.

 

Was hoping to set up round tables and chairs under the cover for everyone to sit during the ceremony if they wanted to. Also a place to relax and watch as we're putting together a DVD of our childhood histories and then our time together...

 

If you've seen this spot and have ideas on how we might set things up, please reply. Any other helpful info on Tucanes would be great...

We're going to be having our Welcome Reception at this area. I'm just going on word of mouth (Monica's) as to if it's a good area to have this. I've attached the pictures she sent to me of this area if that might help you to visualize better.

Hmmm....that didn't work.....let me try it again.... Well, I have a jpeg file that for some reason won't allow me to upload it. If you want, let me know what your e-mail address is and I'll send them to you via e-mail....

Anybody who has been at the resort or had a reception here have any light to shed on the topic? We're wanting to do round tables with seating for approx 50 guests. Valeria keeps telling us that we can't have that type of seating and cocktail tables as wellhuh.gif Not sure why.

 

Unfortunately, Jennifer & I only have the 2 pics the resort has sent us of the location, and they make it kind of hard to envision the whole place...

I visited the resort, but don't remember Tucanes all that well in person. I have seen some pictures on TripAdvisor:

 

El Dorado Royale, Puerto Morelos, Riviera Maya - Resort Reviews - TripAdvisor

 

Click candid traveler photos at the top. There are also a lot of people's wedding setup photos. Be warned: they give away a lot of the little things that would be surprises when you get to the resort. I am sure it will still be amazing, but not a surprise after you look at the pictures.

I am wondering if anyone knows if one of the ceremony sites is sand bag free. I did a site visit awhile ago and was almost postiive one end of the beach had an area without sand bags where weddings could take place. When I asked the WC about this she did not know what I was talking about. Am I losing my mind?

I'm having my wedding there in a month.. I am having a reception after dinner on the beach by the beach bar instead of the disco... They are open to what ever.. I am bringing christmas lights to hang.. more of a casual resort wedding but very nice.. The beach is fine and no sandbags.. It's on teh south side by the fence for the ceremony or you can have it in the jungle area.. I am moving mine down by the water.. they will work with you on that also.. I will let you know how mine goes..

I've been told that there used to be some sandbag free sites, but that they have continued to add them to prevent beach erosion and protect the resort from storms (see Hurricane Dean...)

I can't tell you for sure, but hopefully someone who is headed down soon can check that out and post for us...

Sorry to tell you this, but there's sandbags at that area... Check out the map below. Maybe you aren't having it by the Beach Bar or I misunderstood something else... The Beach bar is right near Jo-Jos near the pier that goes out into the water...

Click here for Google Maps. Beach Bar location is basically right in the middle.
