I photographed a wedding at the Riviera side.  They got married on the beach which is located directly next to the gazebo, so I have photographs of both.  Let me know if you'd like to see them as they aren't on my blog.  faberphotography@charter.net

    Thank you so much for sending those to me! 


    I am very happy with our choice in resort!  Wish I could go visit ahead of times but there are so many pictures and videos out there that I can almost imagine it all perfectly!


    Does anyone have any pictures or videos of a reception from this resort?

      Hi I am also planning a Riviera Maya/Playa del Carmen area wedding in July 2013. Also because of a teachers schedule :) I have had email correspondence with a few resorts and I'm not sold on any of them yet. We have no idea how many people will actually becoming for our wedding but we are guessing around 25. I want an all-inclusive that is great food and alcohol. I haven't looked at the Princess Resorts until I saw your post. Can you tell me why you chose GrandRiviera over Sunset? I'm having a hard time seeing any difference between the two. Also, how has your communication with the Wedding Coordinators been? Thanks so much!!! And Congrats!!!

        There actually is no difference between the two.  It is all one resort, I was really confused about it at first but it is just divided into two sides.  Either side can use any of the restraunts so I am not entirely sure why they did it that way.


        We hired a travel agent at home to help me with everything and she actually suggested it to us!  We had looked at every resort out there and for some reason, never came across this one.

        I read tons of mixed reviews so I was a little nervous. I ended up getting really lucky because  one girl that I work with went there and decided she wanted to get married there because she loved it so much!  A few months later, my boss went there and loved it so much that she recommended it to another lady that I know, she just got back and said it was amazing!!


        I picked it because I love the fact that it is sooo big! There is one thing about the resort that is bothering me,  If you hire anyone outside of the resort to do anything you have to pay $200.00US per person to allow them onto the resort.  I wanted to hire a photobooth company, 2 hours after dinner, and they told me that unless I pay $400 extra dollars, they are not allowed to come onto the resort.   The photobooth company told me that they have heard of day passes for about $50-70 but never anything like that.   Same also goes with the photographer but I have heard really great things about the resort photographer so I just booked them!

        Good luck!!

                    I just came back from the Princess hotel for a vacation and did ask them about the wedding package.  The food there is not so bad.  All staffs are very helpful.  The resort is big, but not too big.  There are always some activities for you to do.  Bars are everywhere; in pool and outside pool and by the beach.  There is a show almost every night I was there.  There was a night with little fun carnival at the plaza and there was a night that outside vendors come into the resort to sell local stuffs.  You wouldn't have to go outside the resort at all.  My trip was more like a vacation as well as a site visit.  My fiance and I did like the site a lot, but the wedding package available doesn't seem to fit our needs.  Hope it helps.  Let me know if you have any questions about the location!
