Possible Wedding in Riviera Maya 2012

Recommended Posts

If anyone can provide details around Ceiba del Mar vs. Fairmont Mayakoba that would be helpful.  I know of course one is a boutique vs. larger hotel.  But any information around pricing, food, service, accommodations, etc would be greatly appreciated.  Are there any items to ask the hotel to include?  Negotiation points, etc.  I see that the open bars at both hotels are very expensive. 

 

Also, has anyone had or been to a wedding at Amarte Maroma?

 

Thank you so much!!!

We've been playing for weddings reception in both hotels, I suppossed Fairmont is much more expensive than Ceiba del Mar which is in Puerto Morelos and you can go downtown to spend a good time, and the Fairmont is in Riviera Maya between Puerto Morelos and Playa del Carmen, and the Mayakoba are so beautiful hotels.  By the way, if you want to hire live music for your wedding check Torang Velazco y su Aché pa' ti Orquesta.

Congratulations and welcome to the forums!

 

They are very different indeed! I prefer the smaller more intimate boutique type feel but that is completely up to you!

Here is a link to a Ceiba del Mar Wedding: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.10150201566329487.324776.18683524486&type=1

 

Best of luck and let me know if you have any questions!

The hotels mentioned are all very different.  As mentioned in other posts, you should definitely check Ceiba del Mar's new policies and owners (there has been a lot of talk of it changing its concept to clothing-optional).  I've done beautiful photo shoots at Amarte!  Check out the shoot on MY BLOG.  While I have not been to the Fairmont, I have done a gorgeous shoot at the Banyan Tree Mayakoba and the class, style, and beauty of the Mayakoba complex is un-matched.  It has a richness to it that truly adds to the magic.  Check out the Mayakoba shoot on MY BLOG as well.

 

Here are a few comparison pictures as well:

Thanks for the pictures, I'm loving that boat looking picture from the Mayakoba, what a great ride!!  We head down tomorrow and have a few hotels lined up to visit.  Staying in downtown Playa del Carmen to cut back on costs.  Did you find the information you were looking for??

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
