    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!!!

    Life is better with your best friend, that's why I am marrying mine <3

      Hello!  I'm getting married on May 10, 2013 at the RIU Palace Las Americas.  Have you decided on a location or a date yet?

        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!
