2013 Gran Caribe Real/ Royal Cancun Brides

Recommended Posts

Lori,

For my guests flying in from Texas, they will pay about $500 roundtrip for flights. The room rates we got iwth the TA are pretty much the same as you can find online. The only difference is she got us $50 for the first $1000 spent, and then $50 for each $500 after that. The lowest grade room at GC will be just shy of $1000 per couple for four nights. So, a little less than $2000 per couple for four nights.

Thanks for the info! Hmm see that worries me because I don't want my guests paying no more than 1200-1300 the most. I'm wondering if its the resort, the location (Hotel Zone) or just Mexico itself. :( I don't know what to do. Just for a site visit this summer I'm getting quoted a ridiculous amount.

Us and our guests are paying just about $520 (jetblue) from NY in July. For the rooms we worked with Wendy who got us group rates by blocking off rooms. Those rates differ by which hotel (either the royal or gran caribe) and how many people you have in your room. They weren't cheapest rates I've seen (for instance my sister got a lower rate with flight/hotel on priceline than the group rates are), but the one good thing is they lock in the rate for you so in case the price of the hotel goes up you get that lower rate. I guess like anything it has its pros and cons, but that's the route we went.

 

We went down for a site visit the end of November for 3nights/4 days and paid just under $1200 each. We stayed at the royal.

It's hit or miss w/ the prices....1 of my friends paid less then 1k! (895) for each her boyfriend and herself for 6 days @ the resort, but i've been looking for that deal and cant find it. Most of my family and friends have paid anywhere from 1200 to 1600. It's def hard to even negotiate w the resort. They were quoting me more then expedia was showing for just the resort stay!! What might also be more expensive is the time of year you're getting married :( Dont worry your family and friends will make it happen!! There are def cheaper resorts so it's not Mexico or the Hotel Zone, it's Gran Caribe...

Does anyone know if Gran Caribe has a night club within the resort?  I'm not sure what we should do after 10pm.

Not a problem with hanging out with guests at royal.on night of wedding, everyone went to gran caribe after. There was a band there so we continued the party. Even our wedding guests who were not guts at either resort hung out with us into th wee hours.

Let's try that again....even our wedding guests who were not staying at either resort hung out with us at gran caribe into wee hours, after the wedding and reception. By the way our wedding was on 9/4/12. Half the guests stayed at Royal, others at Grab Caribe. About 4 stayed at outside hotels.

    • Paradisus is actually notorious for doing this and we have to fight with them all the time to get the rates lowered. Are you using a TA to assist you?
    • Moon palace cancun offers Sikh priest. Janina Mendoza in weddings was very nice and able to help me.. suggest to contact her.
    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
