I'm starting a new thread because I thought we "undecided brides" can help each other out. I'm currently not booked anywhere, but do have a few places in mind; in Playa Del Carmen.
I originally was going to do a Cabos wedding, then changed my mind to Mayan Riviera where I could fine better resorts for better prices, then I fell in love with Azul Sensatori but it went over my budget for my guests and seen way too many reviews about it having a horrible beach. Also, not a fun resort.... and those two things matter to me.
Sooooo, now I find myself lost and hoping to find the perfect resort (perfect for me, at least).
If you guys have any suggestions, I would appreciate it plenty. I'm including a list of resorts I have in mind, and a list of MUST HAVES.
List of Potential Resorts
1. Secrets Maroma Beach Resort 5*
2. Playacar Palace 4*
3. Riu Palace Mexico 5*
4. Grand Sunset Princess 4*
List of MUST HAVES
1. Budget is $1350 per guest.
2. Beautiful beach, turquoise water, and not full of sea weeds.
3. Good wedding packages, and romantic ceremony locations (Preferred off the beach/sand and under a garden-ish Gazebo).
4. Kids friendly.
5. GOOD FOOD
6. Fun environment, good entertainment with good party vibe.
(I have a big latino crowd, and we like to party!)
I would like a May wedding, specially one around 5 de Mayo! So we can have a chance to celebrate the Mexican culture!
I am aware that my budget is low, but I have some guest travelling with kids and all. So I would hate to make one family spend up to $6000,00 to be present in the day of my wedding.
They are important people to my fiancee and I, and we are trying our best to get our family and friends there.
Please feel free to be honest, and tell me your honest opinion of any of the above mentioned resorts. As I need as much feedback as I can get.
I would also be glad to help any of you with any information I fish out!!!!
