Site Visit Planning for AIs

Recommended Posts

If I wanted to do site visits at AIs in the Mayan Riviera but am not planning on staying at all the places I'm visiting, how does that work? Do I have to pay for day pass to see the rooms and eat one meal? Do I set it up in advance with their wedding coordinator? Will they let me on the property?

I would definately advise you to set up a time with the wedding coordinators prior to going down there. They will probably send you their packages as well so you can do some research before-hand.

contact the wedding coordinator/dept at the resorts you are interested and ask them to send some wedding info (helps weed out the resorts that just won't work for you).

 

if you are still interested then you schedule an appointment with the WC.

Definitely let the wedding coordinator know you are visiting and set up time to meet with them. Also, prior to going there, narrow down your choices. The water is inviting and instead of doing site visits, you may just want to relax on the beach.

 

When we went in August, the wedding coordinator waived the day pass fee for us so we spent the day at the resort and ate in all the restaurant. We wanted to make sure that the food and service was great. We planned to visit 2 AI resorts and ended up only going to one, Dreams Cancun. To us, Dreams had everything we were looking for.

We went down there in April to do this!! We visited around 8 AI's and chose Secrets Capri... with Excellence as a close second (we don't have any children attending, so the adults only option was fine with us).

 

We didn't need to set up any appointments before we arrived- basically, every morning we would call a couple of the resorts and set up a time to meet with the wedding coordinator. Give yourselves a good few hours between each property (to allow for travel time and the tour). Some took longer than others, of course because we either loved it or knew it was a no pretty much right away. All the WC's we met with were very helpful. They toured us around the resort, pointing out possible wedding/reception locations, restaurants, rooms, and anything else. We left each one with a package that we could review later. We didn't have to pay for anything- the WC will leave your name at the entrance to the resort. Just make sure you get the name of the WC at the property so that you can let the security know!

 

Hope this helps!

So I'm having a hard time narrowing down and a friend told me it makes a difference to actual stay over at a resort vs. just visit it to get a real feel for everything - did you guys do this? I have 3 nights, but I was planning on visiting resorts from Puerto Morelos all the way down to Tulum...

We stayed in the area for 8 days, mainly for site visits, but also a little vacation. We saw 8 resorts during the week, and stayed at each for only about 3 hours to get a quick feel. For us, we didn't need to actually spend the night, we pretty much knew right away which one we were going with!pinkie.gif

    • Hello all!! I'm planning to get married next week. I'm working in an MNC and I'm gonna marry my colleague who is in my company. It's been ten months since we have started our relationship. He used to support in all my difficulties and used to help me in my work. Always he used to tell me about my smile. He says that I have a very good smile and he loves it. Recently I lost my front tooth after an accident and it resulted in a bad look for me. He told me that I lost my beautiful smile. I was totally disappointed and thought of finding a solution. I heard about dental dentures and took an appointment at a clinic in Scarborough. Will dentures affect my speech? What was your experience of getting dentures? 
    • Go for the third one. It is gorgeous and you will look stunning in that. I'm sure you will be noticed by other people. Go for it.
    • I would suggest the long one. You will look stunning in that. It is simple and elegant.
    • Both the gown are awesome and I'm sure you will look gorgeous in both. But I would suggest the first one. Go for it and Congratulations for your marriage.
    • Hello everyone,  I am still engaged, still not planning the big day, because we haven't chosen a date + we have some family stiff to do so I hope that this forum will help me a lot before the real craziness during the wedding planning period. Happy to be here
