Hi Everyone,

 

I just came back from Tulum after visiting five venues - Ahau, Ana y Jose, Akiin, El Pez and La Zebra.  We narrowed our choices down to Ahau and Ana y Jose.  I have been communicating with both hotels; however, I am having a difficult time communicating with Ana y Jose.  If this is any indication of how the wedding planning process will be like, it is a major concern.  I am not sure who is in charge to make decisions and they keep directing me to either the wedding coordinator or the reservations office.  It is quite frustrating and I feel like it is not going anywhere.  Has anyone had successful, good experience with Ana y Jose (not their beach club)?  I am starting to talk to Ahau and working on a proposal, but they seem responsive although I will have to see how it goes.  If anyone has any insight with their experience at either Ana y Jose or Ahau, I would really appreciate it!

    I'm having trouble getting ahold of either hotel.  Did you ever get the prices from them.  Looking at the 2nd week of December.  We also into the same hotels.

     

    Did you book any other vendors yet?

    RS, the initial response time for Tulum hotels seems to take ~2 weeks.  It took awhile for both hotels to respond.  Did you end up booking a venue yet?  We're still looking for a venue and so we have not looked into other vendors yet.  Please let me know if you have recommendations.

      Do NOT go to Ana Y Jose!!!! They totally butchered my wedding!!!

      Seriously it was completely awful. I'd happily get married on the side of the road with a taco stand before having my wedding there.

      MsTurnsMrs, oh my... I'm sorry to hear that.  We have eliminated Ana y Jose from our list of venues as it became apparent no one seems to know what is going on.  We are now seriously looking into La Zebra and Ahau.  Can I ask what happened?  Ana y Jose mgmt told me that they would hire an external coordinator (Morgan) for large weddings - we are expecting ~120 guests.  I thought that once you get past the initial contract phase, the actual wedding planning should be ok.

        I was able to get in contact with most of these cabana hotels by translating my emails into Spanish. I have problems confirming the general price/ price structure partially because of the language barrier. Looks like, at la Zebra, for approximately 40 guests, the wedding would run about $10K, which is surprising, given the cost differential with a large resort (~$3000). Is this what you're seeing or did I misunderstand their pricing sheet?
