2013 Pueblo Bonito Pacifica/Sunset Beach Brides

Recommended Posts

Hello brides! I am new to the website as well and still deciding between PB Sunset beach for the catholic chapel and Moon Palace in Riviera Maya. I know complete opposites! What are the biggest things that u guys considered when nailing down a hotel?! Also I wanted 10.12.13 as my wedding date but its all booked would a Sunday wedding be against wedding etiquette? It is Colimbus holiday and most people attending the wedding are bankers. I appreciate any help!

Hi all.. I am interested in a destination wedding at this gorgeous resort.. But I think what I want is a little different than most. We have both been married before - so we are not having a large typical wedding. I would love for family and/or friends to witness it - but most can't afford a trip like this one - so we are really just looking for a gorgeous place.. Someone to marry us and a few nice pics. I don't want to pay $1000+ for something so simple.. Am I dreaming?

Hello SoontobeMrsLiz, 


  I just had my wedding at Sunset last weekend. Personally love a smaller resort, so we intentionally requested our guests to stay at Pacifica, but we had our ceremony on Sunset Beach, and reception at Skypool.


Yes, you are smart. I didn't realized a lot of things are extra with very expensive price ( not sure what is the price in US, but it is usually double the price of the outside vendors that I ended finding myself through Google....)


However, the stunning venue and great food at Pacifica still made up for the expensive price.

All of my guests loved the resort very much and they all got to spent time with each other, meeting our family and friends.


The only issue is, there are some of my guests didn't stay at Pacifica, and we had to pay A LOT more for these guests.

I would recommend to get prepared with the situation, and get ready to pay double for these guests.


Hope it helps

I paid 3K to save the date right after I signed the contract.


Since April, the venue will be super popular so the resort will push you very hard for the deposit......

We recently decided to pull our contract with Pueblo Bonito Pacifica. Maira and Laura were very nice and tried to help as much as they could with locking in details and rates. Ultimately the hotel's lack of flexibility with the room block, outside guest fees, outside vendor fees and kids' fees resulted in us not feeling comfortable moving forward with the wedding there. We had contracted for our wedding at the Pacifica and had our room block at the Pueblo Bonito Sunset. There were just too many variables that we couldn't control and could ultimately end in us paying a lot more money when everything was said and done. 


We've now signed with Cabo del Sol and guests can stay wherever they want. All of the fees at Cabo del Sol are laid out from the beginning. For me its better not having to deal with a room block scenario. Not sure if all Cabo hotels are as strict with their wedding procedures and rules as Pueblo Bonito...

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
