Cancun: JW & Casa Magna Marriott

Recommended Posts

Is anyone familiar with the JW/Casa Magna Marriott in Cancun? The staff has been very helpful and professional in their correspondence but I would love to hear from someone who has actually been there!

 

Thank you in advance for any insight to the property!

hi! i just got back from my site visit and toured both marriott hotels and decided on the casa magna for my wedding. i have lots of pics if you are interested. they are both beautiful hotels and they are connected to each other although you cannot go to the other hotels pools, just restaurants. they are in a great location in the hotel zone. they share a wedding gazebo that is awesome!!! a very private space that is well maintained. the event and wedding coordinators are the same and work both hotels and are great. we stayed at the casa magna and the rooms are so comfortable! the only soft sheets and towels of all the hotels we checked out...and the bed is comfy! the rooms are smaller than some hotels. they filter and treat the water so you can drink from the tap. the jw pool is incredible! the casa magna is nice and has volley ball and a swim up bar. the jw is a lot more expensive than the casa magna. we saw 3 weddings while we were there and they were beautiful! although it rained for all of them!!! but, the back ups were in place and coordinators were great.

also, they just built a new terminal at the airport and it is gorgeous. i looked at 7 hotels during my stay.

please let me know if you have any more specific questions.

when is your wedding and how many guests are you planning on?

are you working with josefina? if so, you can tell her that i highly recommended her and the hotel. we met with her several times during our visit and she was great.

I am getting married there in 2 1/2 weeks - do you mind sharing the pics that you took? I am glad to hear that out of all of your site visits you chose the Marriott. Thanks and good luck with your planning

Here is a photo I took of the gazebo...I think I have more photos but sounds like you've already seen some by now. I'm having my ceremony there in March (and going for second site visit tomorrow actually)...it is beautiful. The location is very private, which is great.

    • 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. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
