Hi everyone,

I'm expecting 120-150 guests for my wedding. I'm wondering if anyone has any recommendations for resorts that would work well for a large group and would still keep costs reasonable. I am hoping to have a private banquet hall reception with the party lasting til 2am or so.

 

A lot of the "complementary" options won't work since I would like a private reception.

 

I initially was looking at the Dreams or Barcelo resorts, but they charge a lot per person for ceremony set up, meals, alcohol, extending the reception, etc. The Palace resorts offer unlimited events (since I will have a lot more than 75 nights!) but reading reviews I keep hearing Palace tends to nickel and dime you. I am leaning towards Moon Palace right now but I would love to hear others' opinions or recommendations!

Thanks in advance!

Congratulations on your upcoming wedding!

 

I think if you are going to have a large wedding sometimes the All Inclusives that are a bit smaller are able to provide more personalized service and often are more open to negotiate with you and look at you as a person not just another wedding out of thousands. Also, in some of the super huge hotels it can be hard to find each other during the day, a small hotel will give you the feeling of almost that your group owns the place so to speak haha. More fun that way. 

 

If you`d like to get in touch with me I can provide you some more details. You will definitely need a hotel willing to pay special attention to detail for a group that size. 

 

Happy Planning!

Congratulations on your engagement!

I am getting married at Moon Palace in August and have between 70 and 80 guests attending. so far the planning portion has not been the best so be forewarned.

That being said with that amount of guests you are expecting i think Moon Palace would be the most accommodating.

Thanks! Any particular resort recommendations?

karisma properties can handle this size of group... Aside from Azul Beach. They would be a great option to look into!

In short, I have done similar research

Grab Caribe Real
Moon Palace Cancun
Dreams Tulum
Grand Pallidium Kantenah
Barcelo Maya Palace
Riu Palace Rivera Maya
Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya
Valentin Imperial Maya
Xcaret Park
Amarte Maroma Beach (not all inclusive)

Hope this helps!

Thanks for the input everyone! After 6 months of ho-humming and making excel charts comparing all the different packages, we finally decided on Moon Palace!

Hello Ladies,

 

Another hotel to consider , that really offers a lot is Hacienda Tres Rios. packages are so worth it and the accommodation too.

 

Goodluck and happy planning!

    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
    • Karla Casillas is dishonest and a liar . DO NOT USE her . She will be the missing wedding planner on your wedding day . After being paid in full she did not show up and texted  that she is sick . We had to take over  to save the wedding of 150 guests at Grand Velas . Cabo  MISSING WEDDING PLANNER.
    • You might consider underground studio Puerto Vallarta. They are a young coupe doing an excellent Job at affordable rates.
