Confused Bride to be - Royal Playa, Valentin Imperial or Azul Beach?

Recommended Posts

We are looking to have our wedding in the Mayan Riviera in or around June 2013. So excited!


We have narrowed down our choices to three resorts - Royal Playa Del Carmen, The Valentin Imperial or Azul Beach Hotel.


We like how the former two are adults only properties, but we like the smaller size of the third one. We have guests coming from far (e.g., Canada, U.S., and as far as South Africa), so we want to choose a location that they will all enjoy but that will also be good for our wedding. We are very confused as to which one we should choose. Any suggestions or help people could provide would be appreciated!! Thanks!!

We were trying to choose between the same hotels, and ended up selecting The Royal Playa.  We loved that it was adults only, and its located right in the middle of Playa del Carmen, so our guests can easily walk into town for restaurants, bars, shopping, etc.  No cabs required.


We did a site inspection a few months ago and we are really happy with our decision, although there have been some "extra" costs in the wedding we didn't exactly plan for.  Although it seems that may have been the case at most any all-inclusive property we would have chosen. 

Our wedding is in 2 weeks!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
