    Ugh, long story short, we are having problems that make me doubt my choice in location for the ceremony. I know people are busy and there is a language barrier, but for cryin' out loud, its gotten to the point where I am NOT comfortable leaving my dream wedding up to these people. Some of you already know where I am talking about, but I won't specify as I do not want to unfairly state anything about a location I can't give an honest review of.

    Anyway, what we need is something gorgeous ofcourse, but very, very low key. We'll only have 20 or so guests, so bearing that in mind too. Some place sort of intimate, with a nice venue for the ceremony preferably near or overlooking the water.

    I'd love to still be in or near Tulum, because we still want to stay at the original resort...the price can't be beat and we are still good with the accomodations and property itself.

      Sorry - I'm not familiar with the hotel that you have originally picked...

      Have you checked out the Bahia Principe Tulum? I stayed at the Bahia Principe Akumal in August (the Tulum hotel is right next door and we had sharing privileges). A friend of mine got married at the Dreams Tulum this summer and her pictures are gorgeous. Another friend of mine was married at the Bahia Tulum last November. Neither bride had complaints about the wedding process. Both the Bahia and the Dreams resorts are fairly large; even though the Bahia Akumal was a big resort, I still felt that it was very low key with good food when I was there!

          Thanks for the heads up, Beachbride.

          Do you know, if either hotel allows weddings to be done when you are not staying as a guest on the property?

          And thanks so much Mora! I just saw your post! I'll check those out asap!

              Here's what I found on a Bahia website (Bahia Principe Tulum Akumal Caribbean wedding). If you scroll to the bottom, you will see several FAQs:

              As we are All-Inclusive, do we need to pay charge for extra guests?
              Weddings are not part of the All-Inclusive package, therefore you would need to pay the wedding package and the extra charges in case you have , the charge includes cake for 18 persons and 2 champagne bottles for your wedding group as well as an extra dinner in one of our a La Carte restaurants for your wedding night. All the fees are going to be charged at your room bill, and you will have to pay it at the end of your vacations when you leave the hotel.

              Some of our guests will be staying in Cancun, but we would like them to join our celebrations. Is this possible?
              They can purchase our wedding day pass, which enables them to come into the hotel between 8 a.m. till 11:00 pm., They will then be able to use all of our all-inclusive facilities including the wedding dinner. Please ask them to bring a photo ID with them. The cost of the day pass is 50 USD per person.

              It sounds like you would have to put a credit card number down for the date right away, meet with the wedding coordinator 4 days beforehand to plan your wedding and then pay the wedding and day pass fees.

              Erin.

                Playacar Palace in Playa del Carmen.
                They accommodate small weddings, about 20 people.
                I will be there in Feb for my honeymoon.

                  Hey Lissa, I've been working with De la Mora

                  I am REALLY liking Ana y Jose. I had no idea you could do it all at the hotel, I thought you had to use the beach club, which is out of my price range. We don't have enough guests to justify $3500 base price.

                  Anyone have any experience with them?
