    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!!!

      The more people(guests) you can bring, the more you can negotiate!

          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 Ach© 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!

                  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!  Beach wedding at Amarte Hotel, Riviera Maya, Mexico.

                    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??
