    I've been having such a hard time trying to find a great resort in Mexico, and based on the reviews here I think I'm gonna go with the Royal in PDC.  Only thing I"m worried about in terms of the resort is the beach, I hear its very rocky!! but I guess its sort of minor. Pretty excited about all the planning to come!

      Congratulations and welcome to the forums! The Royal is a fantastic hotel with a great beach. Im not sure why someone would say its rocky? It is located beside the pier.

            Thanks for the response! Yes, I read in the reviews that there are sharp rocks in the shallow waters. We're still on the fence between the Royal and one in Dominican like the Majestic Colonial. The Dominican beaches look beautiful, but the food in Mexico is unbeatable I think. Did your wedding party hang out at 5th avenue?

              Congratulations and welcome to the forum!!  There is a long strip of beaches there so you will have lots of areas to go.


              Warmest wishes,

                    Dear Marina, the Royal has very few rocks when u enter in the water, but with normal beach shoes no inconvenience. I am planning a wedding there on Oct 21 and will send you photos when ready, do not worry about the rocks and concentrate on all the plus that Playa offers, it is a wonderful place to have your wedding! Have fun planning!!!
