    Hi there

     

    I am about to book my wedding at Las Ranitas in Tulum.  The place looks beautiful and is just what we're looking for.  Has anyone been to a wedding there or better still, had their wedding there - or is anyone about to have their wedding there?

     

    Would love to hear from you!

     

    Thanks :)

      I've been there but have not had a wedding there.  I'll post some pictures tonight.  It is one of the largest properties.  Management has changed a few times over the last few years, so any past reviews probably wouldn't be of much help.  Where are you having your reception?  I would probably suggest having it at the pool, which is my favorite part of the property. However, it will be interesting to see the dining room once they have finished their deck.

       

      Do you have any specific questions?

        Hi Destination Scout - thanks for replying!

         

        I would love to see some pictures.

         

        Yes, I have heard that there is new management (and a new coordinator who has transferred from Blue Tulum).  Tripadvisor has some bad ratings from pre-management change... but recently they're all brilliant.  I'm not so fussed about the accommodation though - I am more interested in the wedding capacilities/offerings.  My impression so far is that it is handled very professionally.  The wedding coordinator is extremely responsive and helpful.

         

        I didn't realise the property was one of the biggest in Tulum - it seems to be very open and relaxing... close to nature (hence 'eco lodge').  I don't want an all-inclusive or an over-the-top wedding.  Simplicity is the key.  As for reception, we were thinking of the deck/beach but are still open to suggestions.

         

        Can't wait for the pictures!

          Is Angelina at Las Ranitas now?  I think she's independent, and not actually working for Las Ranitas.  She's very sweet and has a great list of contacts.  I forgot to send you the pictures last night, so I'll have to remember to do it this weekend.  I don't have access to them during the day.

           

          As far as capacity goes, the dining room is pretty small.  I believe there's room for 30 people maximum.  They have a patio that could seet another 10-15 people.  The deck will add space but you would probably end up using that as a dance floor.  Another option would to hire a dance floor and use the deck for extra dining space.  Just make sure that the deck will be competed by your wedding date.

           

          The pool area is much larger and steps down to the beach, so you can naturally expand out to the beach if you would like to.  It is set back from the beach and surrounded by buildings (but not intrusively) so you have a natural 3 sided wind break.

           

          Regarding what they can offer - just ask for what you want.  They will cater your meal to whatever you want and need to hire any other services.  So just ask and you will receive.

            Yes Angelina is working with me - she is independent?  I had no idea!

             

            I am just wondering why I have not seen any reviews on weddings at Las Ranitas...

              I do believe she's independent.  I was speaking to her the other day and that was the impression I got.  I looked through my pictures and realized I don't have any.  I thought I had taken them because I've looked through the property a few times, but then I realized that I never took any pictures because they promised to redecorate.  I decided to wait until they had done so.  They have now redecorated but in the same color scheme and theme as previously.  Sorry.

                Hi !! well a i know angelina a few years ago and worked with her in a lot of weddings she manage the ranitas weddings with other coordinator, las ranitas is incredible they renew the whole hotel its the only one with tennis court in tulum!!

                 

                The beach is spectacular and awesome and pristine, wooow!! the administration and staff is incredible, and prepared.

                 

                For the guests is from 80 to 100 so definetely can fit for medium to big  weddings.

                 

                in my personal opinion angie is one of the best coordinators in tulum and oficially for las ranitas, she is very organized and helpful and professional,

                other good thing is that angie lives in tulum and she knows what is going on with the people that is very important to know, "the local things"

                 

                i feel good when i have events with her because all is schedule the getting ready, ceremony, reception and party is thinking to have the best light.

                 

                i hope this post is helpful.

                lets keep tulum in love!!!!!

                  So far I am VERY impressed!  She has been so helpful and always happy to help... and 'accommodate' our unusual requests!

                    jajajajajjajaja,  for sure, the best thing if you are planning a destination wedding, its to work with someone who really knows and understand the ideas of the guests.

                     

                    anyway , tulum rocks!
