I took my family on a Mexico vacation this past month to Cancun & of course I mixed business with pleasure.Always on the look for the best destination wedding locations, I made appoints with wedding coordinators at several luxury all-inclusive resorts in Cancun & Isla Mujeres.
We stayed at Dreams Cancun which is Punta Cancun, the last resort on the very tip of Cancun. An upgrade to an ocean front room & sparking wine at check in was a sign of goods time ahead.
This 5 star luxury all-inclusive resort is excellent for families & a superb ocean front wedding location if children will be in attendance. The dolphin’s which call Dreams Cancun their home are always fun to watch & yes, you can pay to swim with them too. My kids did and had a blast!! $100 dollars each for 45 minutes swim
Dreams Cancun’s beach side wedding gazebo, offers an incredible view of Cancun, which makes it a spectacular spot to marry or renew your vows in Mexico. Or you can have a beach wedding with your feet in the sand. Cancun’s beaches are back & beautiful! The beach reconstruction is a success.
I made a point to visit Le Blanc resort & spa, the high end property of the Palace Resorts chain. LeBlanc is an adult’s only 5 star luxury all-inclusive resort a few miles south of Punta Cancun. Simple elegance best describes Le Blanc. As far as a destination wedding location couples have the option for a beach wedding or a sunset wedding on their west facing terrace over looking the lagoon. All Palace resorts offer a free basic wedding package as well as free rooms toward the couple’s honeymoon vacation if their group is large enough. This is great deals for couples.
Finally I took the ferry to Isla Mujeres where I visited the 4 star all-inclusive Isla Palace (of the Palace resort chain).
This boutique style resort is small by the Palace resorts standards, only 62 rooms, but still has amenities such a spa & 24 hour room service that appeal to honeymooners & families. The open air beach restaurant is prefect for the outdoor wedding reception following the beach wedding with Cancun in the background.
My last stop was the secluded & privately owned Villa Rolandi on Isla Mujeres. This 4 star Mexico/ Mediterranean style resort is in prefect harmony with the environment & the beach. This intimate resort with 35 ocean view suites and a gourmet Italian restaurant on premise can be rented entirely by a wedding couple for their group. The Villa Rolandi’s private catamaran ferries guests directly to the resort in style.
For those seeking a quiet, elegant Mexico honeymoon or anniversary trip the Villa Rolandi is also an excellent choice.
