There were some issues with the air conditioner - My dad's room didn't have air conditioning the first night and I know at least two other rooms had air conditioining issues too. Overall, though I dont think there were any major issues.
I am getting married at the El Dorado Royale which is much more upscale. I am having lots of issues that I dont think my cousin had with Shangri-La caribe. The EDR is putting all these restrictions on outside vendors and my cousin I believe could use who she wanted in terms of a photographer, band, etc.
Anyway, I think if you are looking for a laid back casual resort this would be a good place. I personally wanted something with beautiful grounds and big lobby etc.
Let me know if you have any other questions

Now I'm wondering about Playa del Secreto / Casa del Secreto / Hacienda del Secreto in Puertos Morales - I guess I'll post separately about it, but they seem to maybe be able to accommodate everyone, I'm just not sure how complicated it is to organize the accommodations and everything. Is anyone getting married there or has anyone already been married there, with a large wedding party?
Any other suggestions (now that you see what I like)?

I also looked into Playa Secreto, but the folks in our group are not the self-catering kind and wanted a resort. But if your group can hang in a bunch of villas for a few days, go for it - it looks beautiful there!

We cannot wait! We're doing a scouting trip April 2008. Wheeeeeee!!!!!
As for hotels/ resorts - Villa Rolandi is gorgeous but pricey. We will be staying in Playa Norte at Ixchel Condo-Hotel in one of the penthouses.
Isla Mujeres Hotel, Ixchel Beach Hotel
There are many options on the island, just depends what you're looking for.

I have read that they've been sold and are closing either this summer or next summer.
At this point, I have to assume next summer, because the coordinator, Christine, has been working with us to create a wedding package that suits us.
I'll ask her tonight and post again if she gives me a definiative answer re: the selling of the resort.
Apparently condos are going to be put up on the spot (I read this on Trip Advisor). Seems like a major shame, because it looks absolutely gorgeous. And it really suits us in terms of the vibe and size, etc.
There are 3 different types of accomodation: pueblitos (basic rooms in an apartment-style building furthest from the beach), beach bungalows (on the beach) and other beach-front houses.
Here are some pics from Trip Advisor. I hope they work - it's my first time trying to post pics!
