Anyone have info. on Grand Sirenis....

Recommended Posts

I have not picked a resort yet and stumbled across Grand Sirenis. It definitely has a different look than any of the other resorts and caught my eye. It doesn't have the colorful Mexico look but it is still gorgeous. It's a new resort (about a yr. old) in Akumal and I can't seem to find any information on this resort as far as weddings are concerned. Please help!! smile124.gif

Akumal: Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya - Traveler Reviews - Great trip and an amazing wedding! - TripAdvisor
Thank you! Not the absolute best review but not all bad either :) I just love the looks of the resort maybe they have fine tuned the glitches.

The Grand Sirenis was one of the resorts that I was considering for my wedding. It has a very picturesque beach (apparently very rocky, but watershoes should do the trick). There is a large trapezoid-shaped hole in the wall dividing the bedroom area from the bathroom in each hotel room. If you do decide to pick this hotel, a good gift for your OOT bags is a shower curtain with some velcro - I saw a post recommeding this as a quick fix on TripAdvisor. I also saw posts on TA that said that you can request rooms with a frosted glass barrier.

 

In the end, we decided to go with a hotel in Cancun because we were a little concerned that our guests would find the Grand Sirenis/Akumal area too quiet. We stayed at the Bahia Principe Akumal in August 2006 and found it really quiet - however, the food and the service were excellent.

 

Hope this helps!

Thanks beachbride,

The more I read the great, recent reviews on TA(except the one that says they were held against their will, seems bogus to me) I think I'm hooked on this one. Now if I could just get a response from the hotel. I REALLY love the architecture of Grand Sirenis. It's affordable which I'm definitely trying to keep in mind for my friends, as we are all in our mid 20's starting careers :) I want everyone to be able to come and I'm amazed at the prices!

I'm hoping it won't be too quiet but I'm sure will have a great time no matter what. I have been to Cancun and they do have the BEST nightlife which obviously you know that and that's why you picked Cancun :) Hmmm...so much to think about when picking a resort!

YES, I would love to see pictures of the ceremony. I have seen one wedding picture and it looks like the site is on the beach in front of the huge natural rocks, which I liked. Just curious to see if there are other sites on the beach good for a ceremony. I'm so jealous, I hope you have tons of fun.

I would also like to hear what you think about the food and night activities (bars in Playa del Carmen, shows at the resort, lobby dancing/drinking, etc.)
