The new Paradisus Playa del Carmen (La Perla and La Esmeralda)

Recommended Posts

I am not sure about prices however I do know that an adult can go to either side of the two resorts. Childred however are only allowed in some restaurants in the middle and the family resort. I am not sure if you had a wedding on one side or private event if they would allow children on the event site even if it was adults only but I would think not.

I'm going to La Perla the 26th of this month for a visit. I will say that the US based wedding dept for paradisus has been less than professional. However, the resort based coordinator, Myrna, is wonderful. She's organized, proactive and very quick to respond to emails. If I decide to book my wedding here, I will do everything through her. The US based team, especially Laura, seemed too focused on getting their commission rather than providing good service.

@ Jules, yes they still have the love at first site package. However, it's more expensive than the Punta Cana resorts. I'm using it towards the first 3 nights of my trip and then am paying the regular rate for the remaining two nights. I have all of the prices and documents from the resort of you like. PM me.

I am looking into a wedding at la perla. I have read a few great reviews and a few negative reviews. Has anyone visited the resort recently? Is the resort complete with construction? How do the wedding areas look? Any information anyone can provide would be great

I'm going on Thursday to check it out and I'll let you know. I've read some good and bad reviews as well. Of course the bad one's scare me. I'm assuming since it's so new, they haven't done a wedding there yet. One of the recent reviews that frightened me was that the neighborhood outside the resort looks really bad and that the staff told them to be careful if taking a taxi out of the resort but that they'd be safe within the resort. I don't want our guests to be scared driving in! It's bad enough they are already freaked out about Mexico in general.

Hi Ladies,

I know it has been a while since this thread was started, but my fiance and I have tentative plans to marry at this resort on September 21, 2012.  We were previously set on Dreams Riviera Cancun, but when I came across this resort, I too was floored and had to look into it further.  My work schedule is crazy, so I sent my fiance (didnt have to twist his arm!) to check out Paradisus as well as Dreams; he is there right now, but has already told me that the resort is AMAZING!  He will be back tomorrow with a ton of pics, which I will be happy to share :)

From what I've seen, the big drawback here is that it is a 100 yard walk to the beach via a wooden "boardwalk", and the mangroves block the view except for from the top two floors.  Also, if you purchase a package, there are several sites that are included, but the really good ones require an extra per person fee that can really add up (I am most interested in the Gabi bar for a reception site; it is open to children, but requires an extra fee).  I would be happy to send the package information I have received so far to anyone interested; just send me an email address.

Also, to answer a few questions that I had myself:

Most of the restaurants allow children and adults, but have cut off times for children.  There are a few bars that are adults only.  If you chose an adults only location, children would not be allowed.  This is a concern for us as my two children will be attending, but from what I understand there are plenty of options.

Also, the fiance says the pools are all heated, including the pools that have the swim up suites.  It seems that these arent used so much,  and if you want privacy, a high floor is better and more secluded.

So thats it for now; so excited for him to return tomorrow and give me all of the info!

Hi Mrs.Barrastobe!

 

I too am planning to get married at the Dreams Riv. Cancun. My best friend just informed me about the Paradisus and now considering this resort. My fiance will be thrilled to know that the pools are heated as it's one of his top five for resort choices! lol. Please let me know how they are with choices of wedding packages and if they will negotiate with prices. We have about 80 guests and including children. I got to go down in Dec. to see the Dreams and fell in love with it and now I guess I am going to be comparing with the Paradisus.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
