      Actually when I started looking into resort for my wedding, The Royal was my top choice. Everything is new, food is great, service is great etc. In fact, they had made us an offer that was pretty good that we should have decided to have our wedding there.

      The factors that made my decision to not have my wedding there are:

      -Adults only resort (big factor - cannot accommodate all of my guests)
      -Very narrow beach
      -A bit on the pricey side compare to other hotels in Cancun
      -Too new that there's been lots of complaints (they don't have their act together yet)
      -At that time, it was hard to find information/pictures of weddings at the resort.

      I see why you would be unsure of having your wedding there. Goodluck...

        I have to add this though...the resort looks great from the inside and out. During my visit to Cancun last month, I was able to see the resort's location. It's across a strip mall (kind of busy area). Has great restaurants and modern decor.

          Thank you so much RoSean. I started looking at The Royal Playa del Carmen today, but I was not as impressed as I was with The Royal Cancun. I also started looking at Sun Palace, but I don't know what quality food they have, I haven't seen any wedding pictures from there, and I think it is couples only. So, if I can use the wedding pictures I have from Royal Playa del Carmen as reference for my wedding at The Royal Cancun, I think I should be okay. It is such a nice hotel, that it can't be too bad, right? I am just more worried about my guests stay for a week than having a nice wedding that lasts a few hours.

              Hey Jquest!

              I am also getting married at the Royal, Cancun this year, November 2009! It has been a little frustrating trying to handle things from another country, however things are finally beginning to pull together a bit. They just recently sent me pictures of a reception on the beach and their wedding gazebo, as well as their bouquet options and dinner options.
              The only thing that is comforting to me (because, let's face it, I tend to be a little bit of a control freak!) is that I have seen many pictures of weddings at their Playa del Carmen resort and they've all looked amazing. So *hopefully* the Royal Cancun can pull it off as well!
              Do you know if their offering discounted rooms for your bridal party because you are holding your wedding there? For some reason, they are dragging their feet on giving me the room rates for our bridal party.

              Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!
              Mrs. McCoy

                Congrats to you!

                The pics that I've seen of receptions there have been beautiful as well and I hope my day will be just as beautiful! As for room rates, it is just the two of us and they did not give us a discounted room rate (though my travel agent did a hell of a job trying!) so unfortunately I cannot help you there. I just set the date--are you using the photographers they reccomend (funever)? The hardest time I'm having is finding out exactly what kind of paperwork they require!

                    Hi Effie! We are planning on booking our wedding for 11/2010 at the Royal PDC as well. I don't see on here that many people have been there but I think it's an absolutely gorgeous place to have a wedding!!

                      Who is your wedding planner for the Real Resorts? I am planning to have my wedding at the sister hotel - Gran Caribe Real since they have a Catholic church. Also, any information regarding Funever Photos will be helpful.
