Wedding at The Royal in Cancun, June 2012

Recommended Posts

I am getting married at their sister resort The Gran Caribe Real May of 2013. I have Claudy for a coordinator and she's been great, but she's currently on maternity leave. We did a site visit and loved both resorts!

Thank you for commenting and letting SparksFly know. I recommended to her as well that she should change it, because i wasn't impressed with how it looked in the pictures as well.

 

If you don't mind me asking, which hotel did you stay at and what did you think of the overal wedding how it turned out? Was the hotel good, clean, how was the food? I have half my guests staying at the Royal, and half at Caribe. I know the Royal guests will have nothing to complain about, but i'm hoping Caribe delivers a great experience as well.

I forgot to "qoute" reply. My response was for both Emily11386 and Twoego! Thank you both for helping us out since we weren't able to do a site visit.

We split our trip between the Gran Caribe and The Royal because we will have guests staying at both resorts. The Royal was beautiful of course, but I had been a little concerned about the Gran Caribe. I was pleasantly surprised. The room was rather basic, but that is what I expected for the price. The service, hotel, and food were all better than I expected. I am more than happy to recommend either hotel to my guests. If you have any other questions please let me know.

Our party of 38 people all stayed at the Gran Caribe (except 2 who were a young couple) - mainly because there were children attending.  We stayed on the VIP floor at Gran Caribe and loved it.  Room was huge, spotless, oceanview,and the the staff were there for anything we requested. We were able to go to the Royal for dinner since we were on the VIP floor and I can tell you that there is no doubt it too is gorgeous - however, very quiet, calm, adults only hotel.Would not have worked for our large group of some young single couples/families with children who wanted a little more lively feeling . Perfect place for honeymoon though!!  You will not be disappointed in either place - just depends on what you are looking for. They are very strict on not allowing anyone from Gran Caribe over to the Royal unless you have the upgrade - your Royal guests would have to come to the Caribe side (which to me did not make sense to spend the extra money if we were all congregating on Caribe side).The wedding was perfect and would not change a thing.  Flora had everything exactly as requested and most of all our guests had the times of their lives!

Thanks for your honest opinion of the caribe's rooftop terrace. I know that the green carpet isn't ideal, but that's they had available for Saturday evening. So I had to make do with what they had available. I also do not know how many people I will have attending the wedding. If I don't have enough people attending at the end of the day, I'll switch to semi private. I had to hold the space in case I have 35+ people. The green carpet isnt goregous, but I am hoping the sunset during cocktail hour will grab more attention than the green carpet. I heard the view is goregous up there. I wish I saw a brides pics who had heir reception on the rooftop terrace.

I am also a June 23,2012 wedding at the Royal. We are having our ceremony at 5pm on the beach followed by cocktails on the beach and then 7pm reception at the Gran Caribe villas terrace.

Hi Ladies,

 

For those that are getting married later than 4 PM, were you required pay an additional $400?

 

My WC at the Gran Porto said if I wanted to delay the beach ceremony later than 4, it would be an additional $400.

Also we had to be off the beach at 10 PM.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
