Looking for reviews of having a destination wedding at Grand Sunset Princess Resort

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I am trying to organize a destination wedding at the Grand Sunset Princess Resort in the Riviera Maya, Mexico.  My fiance are worried about how it will turn out or any extra costs that might "pop up" as the date comes closer.  Can anyone tell us about their experience with planning a destination wedding there?


Thanks so much!

COngrats genise82! One way to stay on track is to write out your budget and list all the items with their costs you've already included in your plans.

THat way you have a better idea of where you are financially, and whether you can add extra options as they "pop-up", nearer your date.


One thing you can count on is that you've picked a gorgeous venue + location for your destination wedding in the Grand Sunset Princess Resort!


You can see for yourself how beautiful it looks in these magical wedding "moments that matter" Linc captured there recently.......with more at the album link here.......


Wishing you the perfect wedding celebration you dream of and have created with your plans, and that it all works out exactly as you hope it will !

 Cheers + Enjoy :)

we are getting married at the grand sunset princess on april 15th 2013.


In every package they have the reception is in a restaurant and if you not at leat 40 persons you won't have the restaurat to yourself !!!


What i can tell you is that if you want a private reception you will have to pay extra $$$, if you want a beach reception its about an extra 85$ per person and at the chill out is 100$ per person. You can also have the reception inside but i don't know the cost.


After seing the picture, we chose the chill out bar, i didn't want to have the reception in a restaurant with other hotel guest and the place is very beautiful !!!


You have two kind of gazebo, one in the sunset side and an other one in the riviera site. We chose the riviera side it think the gazebo perfect. If you wan't picture i can send you te one i have.


I also have the menu for the restaurant and the beach and chill out reception.


I hope this can help you !!!


Have a great planning !!!

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
