Newbie: Riviera Maya, Mexico 11-30-13

Recommended Posts

     Hi everyone, congratulations on the engagements and upcoming weddings.  I have been engaged for a few months now and have been reading this site daily, its perfect!  I meant to post a while ago, but there are so many things going on, I couldn't get my thoughts together. 


I am planning on getting married on 11-30-13 in Riviera Maya, Mexico.  We have narrowed our resorts down to: Now Sapphire, Dreams Riviera Cancun, Azul Sensatori, Moon Palace, or Dreams Tulum.  We are also considering a private venue, away from the resort.  Our main goal is privacy!  I really don't want people to hang out in swimming shorts and be "wedding crashers"! Also, we were considering Barcelo or Iberostar, but not sure if they do a great job with weddings.  Does anyone have any thoughts or opinions? I would love to hear some of your thoughts on these resorts if you have contemplated them as well.


Also, I am planning to fly out to a site visit on 1-18 to 1-23 and have appointments set up at the hotels.  I would be more than happy to take/post pictures.  I was planning on meeting with an outside photographer and an outside florist.  The wedding guides from the resorts have centerpieces running almost $300/each. Does anyone have suggestions on photographers or florists?


Thanks so much ladies, I look forward to sharing thoughts/ideas!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
