Advice for a foodie

Recommended Posts



My fiance and I are trying to decide on a resort in the Riviera Maya area to have our wedding reception, but we won't be able to actually visit any place before the winter.  On the one hand, we want this settled before then!  On the other hand, having good food at the reception is really important to us, and we can't taste the options through the internet.  We are considering mid-size or small resorts like Le Reve, some of the Karisma resorts, and others in the Playa del Carmen area. 


Are there any foodies that have recommendations or warnings?

Hi there ndavan,


Being a TA, I have visited many properties in the Riviera Maya (wedding site inspections) and I'm a total foodie. I've experienced both extremes, food that was so bad I got sick and some of the best food I've ever eaten. To sum it all up, I highly recommend the Karisma properties. I've been to all of them and not once have I experienced a less then delicious meal. Obviously if you have children attending you'll need to go to one of the Azul properties. Mid size to small I'd recommend the Beach or Fives. If you're after adults only, I loved the El Dorado Seaside Suites!


Another property that will please the palate is the Occidental Royal Hideaway Playacar :)


That's my opinion! If you want specifics, just let me know!

    • Hi there! I visited Now Amber PV in February for a wedding event for travel industry professionals. I stayed there for 4 days and they hosted us for several events and two dinners and everything was amazing. Their wedding department staff/team is incredible and the designs/decor were all crafted so beautifully!! There are several wonderful options to host events and I was so impressed by how they utilized and transformed each of the spaces. We had events in the lobby, which has the most beautiful view. On the beach, in the middle area terrace of the resort, and on the pool deck. The service was top notch and entertainment was fantastic. As a resort, it was a great place to spend a getaway. The resort staff is great, the food/drinks were all delicious and the overall vibe of the place is just perfect. Your daughter has picked a wonderful resort to host her wedding! If you have any more specific questions about Now Amber, feel free to ask here! Or shoot an email to info@wrighttravelagency.com -- this is the official travel agency of this forum and several members on our team have stayed at Now Amber and had couples book their wedding there 😊
