New Princess resort in Riviera Maya

Recommended Posts

Hey - are you guys still thinking about this place? I just saw a comment on tripadvisor that said "STAY AWAY!" The post said the construction is terrible.

 

We're planning a Jan '09 wedding - do you think the construction will be done by then?

I was thinking of having all my guests stay there for my wedding in May '08, although the wedding will be at Al Cielo, off property. I'm debating btwn there and Barcelo Maya Palace - the Barcelo's ocean area is calmer and clearer like the Caribbean, and it is close to my wedding site and sites such as Tulum, but Princess is SO much cheaper!

I'm hoping the kinks will be worked out by then.

 

Here are current photos:

Other people on the tripadvisor forums posted more mixed reviews - they said beautiful property, good food, nice pools, nice rooms, but lacking all the necessary amenities as of yet, yet somehow it came of a tiny bit more positive than the one guy who posted a review.

That's awesome! Please let me know what you think after you see it!!

 

I did look at Tripadvisor again and saw better results - it seems like they get things built quick down there (we were at a different resort last week and I couldn't believe how fast the addition went up) so in a year they should be more settled - right?!

 

We're planning on using a travel agent - does anyone have any idea how far in advance they have pricing available? We're doing a Jan '09 wedding and funjet and apple don't go out that far...
