    I just wanted to inform everyone that after coming back from adventura spa, I would not recommend going for a romantic getaway there. I am looking for a destination for my wedding, and liked the idea of doing it at a spa. This place is not the spa i was looking for! The words jersey shore were muttered about the guests there, and everything seems to have changed (my first time, but i did speak to the members). The food was hit or miss, the crowd and noise were unforgivable, and the spa was just OK. One night, i even needed to make a complaint about the noise blaring outside my room at 11pm (like a club!). 


    I will not deny, the beach and water is beautiful, and the whole resort is quite pretty (don't get me wrong, I have seen much nicer). However, the size is huge and you cannot have a nice quiet time there. I would say definitely not for a honeymoon, and wedding only if you do not want any privacy. 

     

    I will never go back. It must have been the purchase to become a hard rock, but this place is no longer a 5 star. I would say 3.5 overall, tops. 

     

    If anyone knows of a beautiful quiet oasis that is ideal for either weddings or honeymoons, I would love to hear about it. Thank you!

    hi Ashley,

     

    I'm sorry to hear it wasn't the spa-resort experience you'd hoped it would be!!! 

     

    We were married (and honeymooned!) at El Dorado Royale in Riviera Maya. It is definitely a romantic resort for couples - and their spa was really wonderful. We stayed in the Casitas side - a resort within a resort. The entire property is lush, well kept, and definitely worthy of 5 stars. The food is gourmet - and we had no complaints at all about the food. The service was beyond amazing too! Was everything perfect? No, but the things that weren't perfect were very minor, and the resort always did their best to make things right. 

     

    There are links to my review of the resort in my signature, and my profile has a number of photos of the resort (and our wedding) too. We really fell in love with EDR, and can't wait to go back (if you can't tell!)

     

    Good luck with all of your planning!
