For an upscale destination wedding in Cancun, start your search with the following hotels:
Zoetry Villa Rolandi: This 5-star hotel offers “endless privileges” to guests. It is a smaller hotel, so it is perfect for intimate wedding parties who want personalized attention. Holding weddings up to 80 people, your group will get everything you could imagine, amongst truly luxurious amenities. The small number of rooms available means you must book in advance though.
Hard Rock Cancun: Hard Rock Cancun offers the rockstar treatment for upscale destination weddings, with chic music-inspired rooms, and wedding decor packages designed by celebrity event planner Colin Cowie. For those who wish to have an upscale wedding with a bit of an edge, there is no better location. You can hold weddings on the beach with as many guests as you want.
Mystique Blue Holbox: For those who want a smaller but still upscale wedding destination, there is no place better than the Mystique Blue Holbox.

Expect unbeatable service in an unrivaled location.
