Hello ladies,


I am recently engaged and looking for some input on resorts in Cancun/ Riviera Maya area.  Not sure where to even start.  I live in the Ft. Worth/Dallas area and there is only one Destination Wedding Travel agency in the area, but they are still too far away.  Just wondering if anyone had any recommendations.


We actually went to a wedding at the Azul Beach Resort last month in October and it is the same place I was engaged.  

I loved the resort, but their packages only offered up to 25 guests and we will probably need more than that. I know I can pay after that for each additional guest.  However, trying to keep a decent budget for the wedding.


We are looking for an all-inclusive family friendly resort on the beach that is good for swimming.

I want my two daughters to be part of the wedding ages 3 &11.

We would like a resort that offers a package with ceremony, reception dinner and possibly cocktail/welcome dinner.

We will be having approximately 40-67 guests


would love a resort that offers incentives for the more guests we have stay: free wedding, free rooms, discount rates for guests, etc.



also what would he low season or mid season for these areas.  My fiance wants to do early- mid 2015.

Hi @misbosox


I had/have a similar dilemma and my TA recommended Azul Sensatori because it has a side for kids & great kids club as well as a a side for adults so those guests wishing to have an adult-only experience can do so.  While I did TONS of research on resorts (even made a comparison spreadsheet *blushes*), I found reaching out to a TA and giving them a detailed list of "must haves" really helped narrow things down for me. 


Ann has been great to work with and provides honest/candid feedback. During our "interview"/informational call, she recommended the best times of year that would also give us the most leverage in terms of getting great flight and room rates. I shared my spreadsheet with her and she provided great feedback of the resorts listed and recommended ones I hadn't considered like Azul Sensatori. She also visited Azul Beach and took pics during her recent trip to Eldorado Casitas. 


Hope this helps!

    @misbosox I def encourage going to a TA with a list of exactly what you're looking for.  I feel like mine knows so much about every place!

    thank you... we love Azul, but the room prices are too much for our guests that are traveling with kids... I think we finally narrowed it down to moon palace.  just keeping fingers crossed they have our date open
