Hi there RenewedBride! I'm getting married at PP next June. All of your photos are lovely! How early did they let you book your locations? I'm thinkingI'm going to have close to 50 people. I'm wanting to use the wedding terrace and Luna Li unge as well.

Hi ladies, I just have to say that the Playacar Palace was a fantastic location to have my wedding. I see Matt from Del Sol posted my pictures. They did such an awesome job and I would highly recommend them. They are the pictures that are just a few posts back. Mariachi band was also great. Good luck with planning!

I'm glad I could help :-) This really was one of the best experiences I've ever had... And if they could deal with me and all of my chaos and still assist me in bringing forth the vision for my day, I'm sure they will do the same for you. My parents have traveled all over the world and they both said they have never experienced the level of customer service and professionalism that they encountered at Playacar Palace. Your day will be great!

Hey Lynz--just sent this as a PM but wanted to include it for everyone else...

 

The resort credits were sort of a pain.  The golf is down at moon palace, so no one from our group of 70 wound up going to use it (it's around 45 minutes each way, plus catching the shuttle, etc.).  They also have a couple of excursions that are available to use with the resort credits.  It sort of depends how long you're there whether you'll use them.  Most of the excursions are only 1-2 days/week and I don't think anything is really available on the weekend aside from the dolphins on Saturday.  Since our guests came mostly Thursday-Monday, not many people were able to use the credits outside of the spa.

 

For the spa, you're only allowed to use 20% of your overall credits at the spa (for 1500 it's 300).  The spa services wind up being fairly expensive though I think to compensate for the credits (around $139 is the starting price for massages).  I definitely used all the credits I could (and went over a couple of hundred) at the spa for hair, hair trial, and then part of a massage.  The spa is new and absolutely gorgeous!

 

One other thing for the spa-- tipping.  It's very confusing because there's no place to tip, however when you get your bill at checkout you'll notice there's a service charge (in addition to tax) that is fairly high for the spa.  I believe this is the tip, so no need to worry about it.  It would have been nice to know though because we did wind up tipping a few people double (of course, they're all awesome and deserve it).

 

Of our 1500 credits I think we just used the 300 for the spa.  We tried to do the romantic dinner on the beach, but it looked like it was going to storm so we wound up bailing. It might be possible to use credits to have a photographer take pictures of the rehearsal dinner or another event outside of the wedding.  We had some friends who took those pics for us so we didn't ask, but it might be worth checking into.

Hey ladies!

 

Just got pics from my friend from our rehearsal dinner on the beach deck.. thought you might want to check it out!  We went minimal on decor, main purchase was renting strings of light from Zuniga.

    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you
    • If you use the search function for those locations you may better be able to find something. What exactly are you looking for? Recs on photographers?
    • Hello wedding review perusers, If you are considering Romantic Planet Vacations as your wedding planner/coordinator... Stop turn around and RUN!!! We got married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico on July 9th 2019 and had the worst experience dealing with this company.    We had Vanessa and she was terrible with her customer service edicate.  There were several times when she was unresponsive and unavailable without any prior notice. We had several emails excusing herself for her absence.     First off, this company works on commissions from the vendors so they are not really working for you but to set up weddings that will profit them the most. Because of this, our entire experience dealing with the hotel and reception staff regarding anything room related was awful. Their continued response was you didn’t pay us any money so any and all changes have to be made by them (which ALWAYS INCURRED ADDITIONAL FEES). And guess what Vanessa was not helpful and unresponsive.    The $1000 Air flight credit is a SCAM. Thats incorrect for me to say. What I should say is please make sure you read all of the fine print very, very carefully. They will do everything in their power to not give you all the necessary details until they are no longer responsible for giving you the flight credit. Vanessa was going to set up the return flight for the credit but she stopped returning phone calls and emails so how were we supposed to book it without a person to book it with.    In short, Vanessa said she was going to take care of a lot of things that she didn’t. She would not respond to our phone calls and the hotels phone calls when situations came up during our wedding stay, leaving us to deal with the hotel. We contacted their management and to see if they would want to rectify anything before posting our negative reviews and to put it bluntly they could give 2 Sh***.   It is very difficult to express how terrible the experience was in a short review without seeming petty. I am giving our wedding email in hopes that any person that wants a better picture of what our experience was can email us and we are more than happy to share any of the correspondences between us. To help us filter through the Spam all email should contain the following subject line: Please helps with your experience!!!   Thank you Oliver And Claudia  Oliver.and.Claudia2003@gmail.com
