    My fiancé and I have decided on a destination wedding and we are so excited!!! We have been looking into various places (Punta Cana, Cancun, Costa Rica,etc.) and we really want to have everything at an adult-only all inclusive resort. Where I am having trouble is finding a place that is really nice, but also not outrageous pricing for my guests. We plan to have between 25-35 guests.

     

    All of that being said, does anyone know of great places we could go that are really nice but not to overpriced? And do most places give an overall discount for rooms when there are a lot of guests?

      @MichelleL congratulations on your upcoming wedding!!!!! and welcome to the amazing bestdestinationwedding community. There are so many wonderful resources here.

       

      Can we ask what you consider "not too overpriced" If we know your budget we can certainly make some suggestions for beautiful adults only resorts/hotels.

       

      In the meantime we'll leave you with some inspiration.

        Thank you!! I am thinking it will end up being a max of $2,500 for my guests... obviously getting it cheaper for them would be better.

          Morning @MichelleL we are in the process of doing some research for you but in the meantime let me leave you with a few places we've personally experienced that have been nice and you may want to look into.

           

          #1. Secrets Silversands - Resort located near Puerto Morelos between Cancun & Playa del Carmen. Family of ours stayed there and we spent a day with them on the resort. The resort is absolutely beautiful and completely adults only. http://www.secretsre...-riviera-cancun

           

          #2. The Royal Suites Yucatan by Palladium is also a beautiful resort. Grand Palladium overall isn't adults only but this beautiful section of the resort is and you and your guests would have private pools, bar, beach etc. We've photographed many weddings at Grand Palladium and the experience has always been really wonderful. We highly suggest this resort.

          #3. Hideaway at Royalton Riviera Cancun. Again another resort that offers an adult only section. This resort is stunning with everything you would ever want from a destination wedding resort. http://www.royaltonr...t-Royalton.aspx

              Hi Michelle! Congrats on your engagement  ;)

               

              I would totally suggest getting in contact with the BDW Travel Agents, who can give you a plethora of options for you and your guests. They will be able to best guide you to resorts/locations that will fit your needs.

               

              If you want to get some ideas of pricing, you can contact them HERE! Best wishes!!!  :D
