    I looked into this hotel too and only ruled it out because the pricing was just too high for my week from Vancouver. here is the info I got from the wedding coordinator, hopefully some of it pertains to your questions! Please find the WC's comments in blue

     

    Hi Lupita!
    Thank you so much for the response, and I LOVE the way you answer my questions like that. Definitely helps! Thank you is all my pleasure! :0)
    Okay definitely leaning towards the Turquoise Breeze option. Is the beach ceremony location super public? Yes, but I am there and I am always telling people no to approach to the wedding and do not stop informt of the ceremony

    I would be interested in having ceremony somewhere between 4 and 5pm, so I'm sure that makes a difference for having tons of "watchers" :) Yes but they will be watching a little bite far
    Is there an option to pay extra for an actual dance floor on the beach? We have a palapa that has a wood floor and you can use it as a dance floor and is on the beach

    Or is there another location in the resort where the private dinner and reception complete with open bar and DJ can be held?  (Preferrably not somewhere that's completely indoors, I like the idea of open air) I just have the ball room and it is complitely close
    We are having a symbolic ceremony, so I would like to have it on the 2nd or 3rd day (not including arrival day) Please let me know the date and I will suggest that you do on the 3rd day but at the end this will be your desition
    Anyway I think that's all for now!
    Thank you very much - I am currently working with my travel agent on pricing.
    If you would like to move to the next step please find enclosed the wedding contract, fill it and scan for me in order to confirm the wedding date. I do not require a deposit or credit card information, only your hotel booking number.

    This is great info! Thanks for sharing!  I'm about 95% decided I'm going with Grand Coral Beach Club through Joyce of Dream Weddings. We're going to be a really small group and I'm just finding that the resorts almost penalize you if you're a small group. We're not going to rent a dance floor for 6 to 10 people, or pay for a Chill Grill (??) or rent a ballroom. If we don't make absolutely 10 we can't have cocktails. Plus I just don't want a beach full of people. We can do Grand Coral for our ceremony and cocktails, then go right into PDC for a small dinner reception in a private area. We won't be under the gun to get out after a certain time and pay through the nose if we don't. If you're a large group it makes it worthwhile to pay for the extra time. When you're only 6 or 8 people there are too many things that make it hard to justify the cost.

     

     

    My hardest part was a resort. I want to be close to PDC, and we have friends that are supposed to be going that are very high maintenance and need to be occupied all the time so I figured if we were really close to PDC they could do a few things on their own. I'm in love with 2 other resorts - one has almost no beach that really makes me nervous. The resort gets RAVE reviews but the beach sucks. The other is great but the beach is rocky (from reviews) and it's just a little further from PDC than I want to be. Of course there are others but the price points are just out of reach and I wouldn't ask guests to pay that much when it's not our wedding.


    I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015
