How important is the site inspection? Did anyone go without it?

You can see the setup for some weddings and actual weddings going on.

We haven't done a site visit. I don't think it's necessary. I've researched the resort enough and know some people who have been there and said it's fabulous that I'm not worried about the resort not living up to anyone's standards. Research the resort you are staying at, and remember to disregard the best reviews, and the worst reviews, and somewhere in the middle is the truth! At the end of the day, if you are married, then your goal is achieved! Everything else is a bonus!

We are also getting married at a Real Resort! At the Gran Porto in playa this coming June. I've never seen this resort...nor been to Mexico for that matter.

 

Most of our decision making came from BDW, our Travel Agent (Legacy Travel), tripadvisor.com, youtube, wedding blogs and our WC.

 

From my experiance, most of the Real Resorts have the same rules and regulations just different prices.

We're not able to do a site visit either. We've just done some research and have gone by word of mouth. No matter what we will have a wonderful time because we will be with each other and wonderful family and friends. I can't wait! I get even more excited everytime I think about it!

We stayed at the Excellence resort a couple years ago and loved it! I would not have booked a destination wedding without first seeing the resort.

We didn't do a site visit. I think as long as you've done your research, you should be okay. But my FI's uncle will be in Cancun a couple weeks before the wedding, so he's offered to check some things out for me. Or he's offered to let us stay with them while he's there if we want to check it out ourselves.
