    HNeal,

    I also asked Gloria's honest opinion about the heat and location.  She said my guests would appreciate the air conditioning, and she was right.  They all thanked me for having it indoors.  Everyone was on the dancefloor Non stop too.  I can't imagine they would have danced as much in the heat.  :)

    Yes this helps a lot! I'm there in August so it will be just as hot. I'm torn between Barcelona and the Foyer. I'm glad to hear you were able to go check out the locations and possibly change it last minute if you needed to. I'm thinking we are going to choose the Foyer and hope that Gloria allows us to change it to Barcelona if it's too hot. It funny b/c the first thing my photographer said when he found out my wedding date was "Wow! It's going to be hot!" I'm figuring we are all going to be in Mexico though having a blast so who cares about a little heat!

      If you decide to change things I'd let them know as soon as you get there and be sure there isn't another wedding that day.  I was fortunate to not have another wedding. If you want to have it in the beautiful Foyer, I'd HIGHLY suggest asking her if you can have fans sitting around.  The foyer has large open windows on top but the walls go about half way up, so there is no air circulation on the bottom half of the room.  In the daytime temps were 95+ with high humidity.  Evening temps were 92 or so with high humidity.  I think I read someone else asked for fans to be sitting around.  I think they have some larger industrial fans.  If you have any other questions, ask away!!

          Hi ERC brides! My fi and I are getting married at ERC on 10/4/14. We are expecting about 70 guests or so. I did a site inspection at ERC earlier this month with my MOH and fell in love with it! A couple of questions for all of you 1. what type of room did you and your fi/hubby stay in while you were there? 2. we were thinking about doing our reception at the Grill, did anyone have theirs there? Was it too hot or were you comfortable? 3. Food recommendations for hor d'ourves and dinner please!!! (for the cocktail hour and reception) Thanks ladies!!!

              Hello Brides! I've been really looking at Excellence and I was wondering why you all ultimately decided to go with Riviera Cancun vs. Playa Mujeres.  They both look so beautiful! Thanks!

                I recently did a site visit to Cancun and visited both properties. I felt that the ERC was better suited for our wedding because of the ceremony and reception sites (there are more at ERC), the difference in the wedding coordinators, Gloria at ERC was fantastic, LLenny at PM totally forgot about our scheduled visit and wasn't even at the property. We had to wait about 40 min for her to arrive and then she rushed us through the property. She said no to almost every one of my requests (Gloria said yes or she woudl see how she could accomodate our needs). Llenny said there was a ballroom as a rain option but would not show it to me despite us standing just below where it was located. Also, the PM property was far more busy and the staff seemed like they were working just to keep up with the crowd. There was empty champagne glasses on the tables in the front check in area, etc. The staff at ERC was beyond friendly and made you feel like they truly loved where they worked and the place was immaculate. Honestly, this is just being nit-picky because I HAD to make a decision. Overall both properties are beautiful! The PM property is newer and definitely has a huge "wow" factor but ERC just felt right to me. I have pictures from both site visits if you would like to see please PM me your email and I will send them to you. You can't go wrong at either property but def. keep on top of LLenny (or ask for the new coordinator, Andrea, she was very sweet)
