Help... can't decide on a resort :(

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

Me and my fiancee are planning our wedding in riviera maya fall 2012. Im super excited for this but I can't seem to commit to one place. I've already read a ton of reviews and looked at hundreds of pictures of other weddings. Everything looks pretty fantastic. It seems all you brides are doing it right. My future hubby wants to keep it in playa del carmen. I was thinking either Iberostar or Blue Bay Grand Esmeralda. If anyone has had or attended a wedding in PDC I would love some feedback. Thank you and congrats to all the lovely brides to be!!

Congratulations and welcome to the forum!!   Playa del Carmen is a great location for a destination wedding.    There will be lots of things to do and see.  There are also resorts that are very close to Playa so that is also something to think about.   Sometimes it makes it easier to narrow down a location if you make a list of things that are very important to you.  For example, quiet, private, kids etc.   and go from there.

 

Warmest wishes and best of luck,

 

Lori

ps - I don't like to say bad things or be negative... but the Blue Bay Esmeralda is one of my least favorite resorts. Mainly because the other resorts in the area have so much more to offer you. That is just my opinion and may not be the popular one. cry.gif This also is an opinion of a photographer... and not a wedding couple or guest that books in there and stays for a week.

I've still taken some fantastic shots at the Blue Bay Esmeralda like this wedding: https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.486210409486.266714.18683524486&type=1

cant help on the location as I am doing Punta Cana, DR.  I found choosing a resort was the hardest and most stressful part of the experience so far. Good luck and happy planning!

Good friends of ours gt married at the Azul Sensatori in PDC and loved it there so much that they bought a time share! It's a beautiful resort and I've heard the WC's are awesome.

This was the hardest part for us!! Deciding on a resort was completely overwhelming!  We finally sat down and did a pro/con list for each resort and then read lots of trip advisor reviews and just made a decision! I can't help with either resort you're looking at but best of luck! Either way it will be gorgeous!

I liked the Azul at first but its like 20 min away from PDC in Puerto morelos. We're really not the resort types and he likes  playa so were trying to stay as close as possible to it. $20 cab rides back and forth start to add up.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
