Just wondering what everyone's opinion is on the ME Cancun resort. I love it and have looked at the reviews on Trip Advisor however wanted a wedding opinion. Anyone else look into this resort for a DW? I am also finding it hard to contact the resort from their website. Anyone else find this?

Hi! We are looking into a wedding here as well....narrowed down to there or Le Blanc. I like something with a more modern, glam feel. We spoke with someone at ME for the first time today and I found her helpful although we only asked a few questions. Prices seem a bit cheaper than Le Blanc although the pass for guests staying outside the hotel is about the same and both are pricey. Le Blanc is $91 for guests staying at other palace resorts and $146 for non-guests at other hotels....there is a limit on how many passes and they are not day passes but only from an hour before until after the reception. ME requires you book at least 10 rooms, and for non-guests it is $119 or $134 for non-hotel guests to attend your event (the price depends which package you choose).
Will keep you posted on what we find if you like!

We both e-mailed and called. The woman we spoke with was helpful and the same afternoon sent us a list of preferred vendors along with some other info...the vendors all looked very good. I did however read another review on here from a bride that did a site visit last year and had some pretty horrible things to say, some of which were about the hotel itself (like paper thin walls that let in all the elevator and night club noise, as well as being SO thin that you can hear people showering in rooms next to you and from the hall). I have heard that it is hard to get in contact with the WC so I will also say that, while the woman we spoke with (at a loss for her name) was kind, prompt, and helpful, she also said over the phone that she was NOT the WC but that she had a majority of the information we needed so she could help us with our questions in the absence of the WC. This is good to know in the sense there are other people there who can and will help, but also makes sense to what I've seen other brides say which is that the actual WCs are hard to get in touch with. On the threads I have seen several brides say 3 days to a week for each response.

Thank you all for your responces. I am possibly going to go to Cancun area this winter to do some site visits are multiple resorts. I am finding it so tricky to choose a resort that fits all the criteria - especially price budget for the guests. Thank you all again and if you have any more advice or suggestions I would love to hear about them!

One of the things we were very worried about is affordability for our guests....we are going with a knowledgable travel agent (Wright Travel Agency...hoping we get to work with Wendy as I have heard great things about her) in order that 1.) We can still get any deals or additional amenities that we would if everyone booked directly through the hotel and 2.) Guests can pay over time instead of one shocking lump sum which should be easier on everyones pocket books and make all our invited guests more likely to attend. One tip....check the prices booking directly through your hotel's site along with checking the discount sites....I found that for Le Blanc booking air and room through their site was significantly less expensive than cheapcarribean.com.
