Which all inclusive for May 2013 wedding???

Recommended Posts

Hello!!

 

I am planning a destination wedding in May 2013 in Cancun. I cannot decide on a resort. I want an all inclusive. Also I will be traveling with my 2 daughters who will be 11 and 14 at the time. My children are at an age where I don't feel like they need lots of kid activities but since they are kids it limits us in the way of the adults only resorts.

 

I am currently looking at Cancun Palace which is probably my number one at this point but I am concerned about this Hard Rock transition. Does anyone know info about this? Will it still be a palace resort? I ruled out Moon Palace due to reviews about the beach not being great and I would rather spend time at the beach than the pool.

 

I am also considering RIU palace las americas. I do not see many reviews on it???

 

ME cancun is an option but I am worried that it will not be good for parents and my children but it looks so fantastic!?

 

And lastly Dreams. I am worried it is in need of an updating, the pics I looked at on trip advisor from actual people reveal it may be a little older.

 

Any thoughts? Thank you!!!

I'm in a similar situation as you.  I have actually narrowed down my two resort locations, well actually three...

 

Playacar Palace

Dreams Riveria Cancun

Dreams Puerto Aventuras

 

We are doing a family resort because of nieces and nephews.  I am just having a hard time deciding between the three.  I feel like Playacar is perfect in terms of looks/decorations, but there are only 3 rest. to choose from and I wonder if it is a good resort for kids. 

 

I ahve so many questions before booking, but we ideally would like to get married in May or June of next year.  Just looking for help and advice like you!

I'm a newbie too!!!  We just booked our wedding date for May 10, 2013.  We decided on the RIU Las Amercias because the price is pretty reasonable and we wanted our friends and family to come.  Some of are guest have said they'll come if we can keep the expenses under $1,000.00 per person for 3 or 4 nights.  I think that limited our choices.

 

You can search for DIY ideas on here, but I found it easier to go to Pinterest and search for wedding (Save the date, programs, or anything else to do with a wedding) ideas.  A lot of the pics are from this site and it'll redirect you back to here.. 

 

If you find out any ideas or tricks-of-the-trade please feel free to share them with me.

Playacar Palace is a great resort right next to lots of shopping, it was modeled after the 5 star Le Blanc resort so it is decorated with a sophicated style. . It is not going to be as kid friendly as the Dreams resorts that are geared towards families. Another family friendly resort with a similar location would be The Gran Porto Real ( A travel agent would have great group rates if you have 10 or more rooms )  .

Cancun Palace is a great family resort with an awsome kids club and you get the resort dollar to spend . Another  big plus is that you do not need reservations to eat in the a la carte restaurants like you do at the RIU's.

Check out the Real Resorts chain in Cancun for the best of both worlds-- The Royal Cancun is adults-only and the Gran Caribe Real is for families. The two are adjacent to each other, so everyone can essentially stay together. Both are all-inclusives. Good luck!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
