Just got engaged a month and a half ago, and we are planning a wedding for December 2014 in the Mayan. I have narrowed it down to 2 resorts: Iberostar Tucan and the Grand Sunset Princess...how on earth did everyone decide on which hotel to go with? I am feeling so overwhelmed right now!!
Any planning tips or advice would be greatly appreciated, as I am feeling rather clueless right now! THANKS!
Picking your resort is a very hard decision! One thing that might help is considering whether your guests will want to leave the resort to explore Playa Del Carmen at all, or if you think they'd be happy staying around the resort most of the time. The Iberostar Tucan is in an area called Playacar, which is a 15 minute walk or a 5 minute, $7 cab ride into town. The Grand Sunset Princess is a 20 minute, $25 cab ride into town.
I'd also have a look at recent Tripadvisor reviews for both places to get an overall feel of both resorts. Hope that helps a little bit!
