HI All! The FI and I are so excited to be close to making decisions! WE are looking at the Azul Beach, El Dorado Royale, Playacar Palace, and Royal Hideaway Playacar. We’ve spoken with several travel agents, and of course they get paid by certain resorts….they seem to all go towards one chain….has anyone been to weddings/stayed at/planning their wedding at any of these places?!?! Any input would be appreciated!!!!

@Krobb317: I don’t know about weddings But Excellence has two nice resorts in that area you may want to check out as well.

I am a travel angent and a current bride. No travel agents should ever pressure you in doer direction. Your TA should listen to your theme, dreams and desires; wedding size and guest make up and give you options from that point. Optiions thay fit the feel, look,theme ans budget of your wedding. Maya Rivera is amazing and they have an abundance of beautiful ans affordable resorts. None of thr resorts would have my inital recommendatithy however I have not consulted with you. My advise is to find a responsible travel agent who listens and reccomends based on what you stay to them.

friend had it at playacar palace
poorly planned, hotel food was terrible. how can you mess steak up? It was cold steak and disgusting.
the food took forever to arrive. they had two weddings going on at the same time at opposite ends
the room was meh not too bad but not great.
the beach was very nice!
the pool was dirty and had cups in it with straws.
grossed me out.

@Krobb317: im getting married at EDR in September, dealing directly with the hotel co-ordinators and they are fab. The only thing i would say is watch out for the hidden extra’s, like we purchased the “gold package” as it included everything including photographer ect. Turns out it only includes 1 hour with the photographer, you have to buy additional time :- probably my fault for not establishing the finer details, but with little things like that its soon adding up.. The top package is $3500 and we are so far up to $5000 with additions and that is just for the wedding, its madness, There are only 7 of us going! 🙁
it can be done cheaper of course – just make sure you know exactly what your getting and for how long ect 🙂 xx
