    Hello Ladies, Gents, Soon to be Brides, Brides,


    I need some help deciding on a resort for my May 2012 wedding. I am doing a Beach ceremony followed by a Beach Reception or on a terrace overlooking the beach for 65 guests.


    I have narrowed down my choices to 1) The NOW Sapphire or 2) The Royal (Real Resorts) - Playa Del Carmen. I am having a hard time deciding between the two, and may have to toss a coin :) Any input on either of these 2 resorts or why you chose the Royal or the Sapphire would be very helpful.


    Brides that have had their wedding at either resort or any one who has done a site visit, I would love to hear your reviews or see any photos.


    All please respond or send me a PM.


    I have heard/read great things about each resort and some things that concern me. For example, The Beach at the Royal is not nice, the Sapphire's is better but the food/service, atmosphere is not as good as the Royal. Both are in comparision as for costs. I am unable to do my own site visit so I have to base my choice on reviews and photos which is tough.



    Thanks so much!!!!

      I'm actually debating the same thing now off of web forums and photos. I really like Now Sapphire's website and the way the grounds look but people rate Royal highly and like the service. They seem friendlier and seem more flexible with substitutions overall. Which did you end up going with in the end and how did you decide?


      Thanks and happy planning!

        Ahhhhh! I cant decide either! I have a friend who got married at El Dorado and had a fabulous experience but I might need to include kids at my wedding and that's an adult only resort. I would love to know which you ladies chose?
