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!!

Welcome! Try finding the threads specific to those resorts to find information from past and future brides that may help you make your decision.  For us, deciding on the resort was the hardest part!

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.
