    I am just starting my planning & am lost with the amount of choices!  Here is what I am looking for:


    We are planning for a fall 2014

    -kid friendly beach resort

    -expect 50-75 guests, but would like a bigger resort that has bars, a disco and options for excursions 

    -want a private reception for a few hours, buffet dinner & a dj for a few hours, then the late night people can hit up the disco


    We went to a wedding at Sandos Playacar last fall and it was awesome, but we would like a step-up in quality from there. I am hoping to find a quality place that is $250 or less per night.  

    Any planning suggestions are welcome!

    Hello Nanfa,


    For everything you are asking for there is the Grand Palladium at Riviera Maya. It is one of the hotels in the area that has more options in general for everything: swimming pools, lots of bar and restaurants. For example it has 4 buffet restaurants as well as 9 a la carte. 


    I was there on vacation and I decided to get married there. Every bride is very happy with the results. We are making a private reception as well, and a private beach party. But you have loads of options. 

    I do not know how cost from America as I am coming from Spain but I would take a look there 



    ¬°Un saludo!

      Welcome and congrats!! Check out Moon Palace in Cancun!! That is where myself and my guests stayed and it was great- we had a group of 40 people!  There are plenty of Moon Palace threads out there so be sure to check those out and let me know if you have any questions!

        Welcome and congratulations on your engagement! I just love it here because of all of the great advice and support from brides and the vendors.  Have you looked at Dreams Riviera Cancun or NOW Jade as potential options?
