First post Newbie! Looking for hotel advice;))

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I just got engaged last weekend and this is my first official post on this site!!;)))woot.gif

We are considering a wedding in the Mayan or Cancun area for next year, possibily Feb or March and are desperately seeking advice on which resorts may fit what we are looking for since neither of us have been to the area before!!

We're not sure if children would be coming so at this point we are open to suggestions for both adult only resorts and child friendly ones too!

We are looking for an all-inclusive resort that has lots of activities available for guests, fun pools, nightlife ( disco etc suitable for adults in their 30's up), an excellent swimable beach, good variety of restaurants and excellent service! As for the wedding, we are looking to have the ceremony on the beach followed by reception for approximately 40 guests and a great party! Obviously looking for a hotel that really makes an effort to make the wedding day amazing!

We don't even know where to begin, so hopefully someone out there may be able to help with suggestions?

Appreciate all your replies;)

Hey Lees!  Congratulations!  I haven't been to the Riviera Maya yet, but I'm also planning a wedding Feb/Mar 2012.  The reason I replied is that I noticed you're in Vancouver - so am I !welcome.gif   I really like the Barcelo Maya, it's pretty huge (4 - 5 hotels within the hotel offering high, medium and low cost accommodations), beautiful beach/pools and from what I've heard the restaurants are good too.  Good luck planning!  Let me know what you end up deciding.

Hi Tropic Lover ( love the nickname lol)! Thank you so much for replying, yes we live in Vancouver and congratulations to you too! Thanks for the hotel recommendation, I also heard that Baha Principe hotels are good too, have you heard anything? Have you reached out to any travel agents yet? I'm a bit hesitant to pick just any travel agent right away as my cousin has been planning her wedding in PV Mexico and her travel agent quoted everyone nearly $500 more than we could find for the same deal online! huh02.gif Yikes, these are the days you wished you had a friend in the business! Have you found a travel agent that you would recommend in Vancouver?

Thanks and good luck to you too! cheesy.gif

I'm having the same problem with quotes...everything is so high.  My first set of quotes for Feb/Mar 2012 were sent to me at the beginning of Jan...and they were around $1800 pp including tax...which again was $300 - 500 more than the 2011 prices.  The travel agent I was working with said to wait another month or two for the prices to come down.  I'm currently waiting to see what she finds. 


As you can probably tell I haven't settled with one TA.  I've been in touch with a few more to see what they can do for me.  One of the most recent replies I received was to book the hotel and flight separately - this is mainly because the 2012 flight schedule isn't out yet. I haven't fully decided on what to do.  Realistically I'd like to see the dollar figure as a package and then an estimated figure if we booked separately. 


Another Vancouverite from the "Recent or new weddings at NOW JADE" thread: http://www.bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/thread/69363/recent-or-new-weddings-at-now-jade/10#post_1566732 said she knows a really good Canadian TA.  I've written her back asking for the contact.  When I get it I'll let you know!

    • I bought wedding invitation templates from   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/blue so I can type whatever I want on them but they're cheap and a lovely simple style. Maybe try searching wedding invitation templates. I know it's not something I thought of initially
    • I agree. Ive been with my now husband of 17yrs since his kids were 7,8, and 9yrs old. They are now 30,31, and 32. They have always been treated as if they were one of my own so to call him ask him to give you away tell him your going to call me with details. Those details were me and our children who are her siblings arent invited is beyond rude. When he says hes not coming cause im not invited and you send a text saying hey il guess ill have to let you come and expect that to happen is even worse. Im good just after he does make whatever choice he makes to go and he better make the right one that respects his marriage so problems dont arise. Please miss step daughter dont ever come to my home again dont call either one of us either. Your married and as far as im concerned dead. Stay away from me and my family that you have no respect for. I wish you the best in life as i always have. Im done PERIOD!!! 
    • Out of curiosity, how have the bags held up?  Did the transfer peel?
    • All those dresses are looking really great actually! I still remember back when my little brother got married. Oh, I was sooo proud, I cried out of happiness almost the entire wedding! I wore a dress similar to the second one you posted.
    • Thanks for the reply! I will keep you as much updated as possible! Only realised that I made a lot of typos because it was late at night and a lot to write!  Moving forward, I have asked one of the 2 to be my best man to which he gladly accepted so no issues there! I asked someone else to be part of the groomsmen too and he accepted right away! I have told everyone in the groomsmen (Barring W) about the situation and they are all disappointed in A and W. Right now I am having problems with W being the groomsmen after his comments so I want to remove him from it. Some days I feel like talking to him about the situation but at the same time I feel like a dick and remove him without telling him 🤣  It still has been really quiet from this lot which made me started with the new plan. I have given everyone a plus 1 from the other side of the world. Then I have the remaining spaces left out to who all said yes straight away! Should have done that in the first place haha! Like I said I feel like planning on the new plan without telling the original people about this. It feels to me they do not want to come but scared to say anything. Then again if I carry on with this new plan the majority of the UK side wouldn't even notice.
