Help! Dreams Riviera Vs Moon Palace Vs Now Jade

Recommended Posts

New here!


Planning for a January 2018 wedding in Riviera Maya with 60-80 guests. Dreams, Moon Palace and NOW Jade seem to be the best fits. 


Wondering if anyone has had a wedding comparable to our size at any of these resorts and might have some pros and cons?


Any help is appreciated!

Hi There to ep643! Welcome! I am TA Wendy, and I would be happy to give you some input on all of the resorts you are considering.. I work frequently with wedding groups at each of these properties, and each one is a very good choice for its own unique set of reasons.. but you wont go wrong with any of these!


Of the three, Moon Palace is of course the largest.. lots to do with something for everyone, MANY beautiful wedding venues, chapels beach, terrace, gazebo, you name it and they can offer it! You can even be delivered to your wedding in a horse and carriage here! Plus Palace resorts has a wonderful wedding department that will work with you on all your choices for the wedding and reception, and guests get a nice bonus in having the resort credits that Palace offers.. starting with $500 per room for a 3 night stay and up from there. Moon Palace is easy in/out from the airport, and all your guests will stay occupied and busy with everything the resort has to offer.


I am not sure which of the Dreams resorts in Cancun/Riviera Maya you are referring to, but Dreams Riviera Maya is a great choice as it also is easy to get to, has great wedding locations, (I love their sort of Tahatian looking Gazebo), and is sort of a "Sweet spot" in pricing.. the resort is family friendly, and all the AM Resorts properties offer a very generous amenities package for you as the Bride and Groom. Also worth a mention is the BRAND new Dreams Playa Mujeres property that is just opening shortly. It is in a very up and coming part of the Cancun area, and has a great beach, plus is right next to Secrets Playa Mujeres and adult guests may choose to go over to Secrets and eat at the restaurants there as well as the ones at Dreams. It also have some very good deals right now as they take pre - opening bookings for future dates, so you are in a perfect time to get some really great prices here.


For Now Jade, I would say that there is a lot to like about this resort. Also part of the AM Resorts group of properties, the Now Jade is quite affordable and has many of the pluses that others in the AM Resorts family of resorts offers such as the 3G promo of amenities for Bride and Groom where you can begin to earn comp room nights and upgrades for your 6th room booked. Now Jade is modern in feel and I love their Jewel Tone color scheme used throughout the property. This would certainly be the lowest priced of the resorts you are considering, and you do get a very good value for your money here.

AM Resorts properties also offer Resort Credits for your guests which they can use for tours, spa and other on site options.


I hope this information helps a bit! At Wright Travel we also have some unique promos and specials just for the couples we work with only! If I can answer any of your questions, or request group rates for you at these or any other of the resorts you may be considering, please contact me and I would love to work with you!

@@ep643  Congrats and welcome! TA Wendy has given you some great information for sure! The other thing is you can do is look through the site. There is a ton of information here along with multiple reviews from brides that have had their weddings at the resorts you're considering.


I'd suggest doing a search up top. Just type in the resort and you'll get a bunch of threads that you can read through. That's the one thing with this site - it's so worth taking time to read through what's here. I will say that Moon Palace is a very popular venue and they have the horse and carriage! Something many brides love and of course it makes for gorgeous photos!

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?
