What do you think about the place? I am going to have families with kids, so we are thinking about having them stay at the Gran Real but have the reception at Gran Royal. We like the hotel, based on pictures, but we don't love it. we wish we could go visit it in person to make sure this is the place.

Any information that you have in terms of location, food, venues, activities, will be useful!

 

Thanks!

Hi Ladies!  I'm brand new to this site and this is my first post.  I'm hoping for guidance.  I am getting married at the Gran Caribe in June 2014 at the Gazebo.  Did any of you have your wedding here?  Any advice?  Anything I should focus more on or focus less on?

I'm leary and here's why...  I was originally getting married at Dreams Cancun.  They had my deposit for at least 6 months.  Well a bride's biggest fear happened 2 weeks ago.  I got a call that Dreams Cancun is being purchased and they will close in April 2014 and all weddings April and forward are CANCELLED... GULP!  So I frantically was trying to find another property that had my date available....  So anyway, Gran Caribe was kind of a last resort and not my first choice at all.  Any brides out there have experiene at this property?  Any advice is greatly appreciated!!

Happy Weddings!!

Hello ladies! i just got back from Cancun (i went venue searching) and i am happy to say I picked the Gran Caribe Real/ Hyatt Zilara.

I was debating wether to have cancun or riviera maya. I chose Cancun because its easier to get from Airport. Trust me you dont want your guests to travel an hour after their trip from wherever they are coming from. (at least thats how I think)

Now, Since I am catholic and I needed a chapel i went to 4 resorts (Marriott, Gran Caribe, Omni and Moon Palace)

I chose Gran Caribe because the chapel is BEAUTIFUL. the Hyatt Zilara is AMAZING (yes they changed their sign and everything so its officially called Hyatt Zilara) :) and I did the food tasting...  :) I was not amazed by their entrees but they said they could modify it for me.

So DONT PANIC! Gran Caribel is a GREAT option! they are very professional and are used to do weddings.. but be prepare to drop some cash.. because they cahrge you for EVERYTHING :s

Hope this helps! :)

By the way - do you guys know of a threat for 2014 brides in Cancun/Gran Caribe Real?

How were the rooms at the Gran Caribe?  I keep hearing mixed reviews on the hotel rooms.  Anyone who has been or have any feedback on that.  The wedding packages sound amazing.

There is no threat to weddings in 2014 or beyond I am getting married at The Hyatt Zilara Oct. 18, 2014 and everything is fine so no worries! My only concern is even though I have stayed at The Royal/ Zilara twice in the past I will not be able to make a trip this year before the wedding. Therefore I will not be able to do a menu tasting or pick anything out in person so any specific feedback about the menu would be appreciated since we need to make decisions to put on our invitations ASAP! Thanks!

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
