Q: How long have you been a wedding coordinator and how many weddings have you coordinated?
A: 1.5 years, approximately 300 across the resort brand.
Q: What makes your resort a great place for a destination wedding?
A: Since the Royalton Riviera Cancun is quite a large property, we have a wide variety of incredible ceremony and reception venues! We have the classic beach wedding, as well as our stunning chapel location, which are both complementary venues. We also have our amazing Sky Terraces (both a family friendly location and a separate adults-only location) which can be booked for an additional fee. The Sky Terrace is a completely private location and has panoramic ocean views – it’s truly breathtaking! On top of the wedding locations, the Royalton Riviera Cancun has won awards for its modern design elements and is a luxury property that is sure to impress your wedding guests.
Q: What are the challenges brides face when planning their destination wedding at your resort?
A: As I mentioned above, we have a lot of spectacular wedding locations, but the Sky Terrace is a clear favorite and it does get booked up quite quickly. Especially during our high season from May – July. We always advise to book more than a year in advance if you are set on the Sky Terrace!
Q: What compliments do brides typically give about the resort?
A: Friendly and accommodating staff, incredible food and variety of cuisine, fantastic amenities, and professional wedding team.
Q: What is your favorite part of a destination wedding?
A: There’s something truly romantic and magical about destination weddings and getting married by the ocean with your closest family and friends. Destination weddings really do bring all of the most important people in your lives together, and allows them to not only celebrate a wedding, but also enjoy a once in a lifetime vacation!
Q: Can you tell us an anecdote about one of your brides when you saved the day?
A: I had a bride whose mom was not going to be able to make it to the wedding, because her brother recently had a medical emergency and needed her to stay home. The bride was upset, but understood that her mom needed to be at home taking care of her brother. I received a phone call from the bride’s mom about three days before the wedding, letting me know that she had arranged to fly to the destination to be at her daughter’s wedding, even if only for the day. She wasn’t going to miss her daughter walking down the aisle! I had to arrange a last minute transfer and update the wedding plans to accommodate. All of this was a surprise for the bride, and I was so happy to be a part of a moment that I know they will never forget.

“Excellent place to travel with a family we were a family of 5. We have three young boys ages 8-13, they had an amazing time here. Staff was very friendly the guys at all the bars were extremely nice. Special thanks to Paulina Hernandez ( guest service ) this Resort would not be as great without her hard work, support and dedication. She is an amazing person and there to help with anything you may need.” – Steven R. 3/20
“Had our wedding here. 81 of our friends and family made the trip. Everyone single one of us had a fantastic time. Drinks, food, and service was great!!! Downside is we were there in November Jellyfish were very active on the shoreline. Wedding day was outside on the terrace with the ocean view. Weather conditions had a chance of rain and high wind. We got through the ceremony had planned a reception on the beach but had to resort to our “Plan B” which moved us indoors to a restaurant. Everything went smoothly with the last minute changes. Our wedding planner and her staff did and amazing job. Family members are already trying to make plans to return for our 1 year anniversary.” – Edgar A. 1/20
“We attended a wedding and stayed at the Royalton on the hideaway side with Diamond club access. We were blown away from the moment we arrived. The people were so warm and everything was breathtaking! The food was fabulous and drinks were great for an all inclusive. We will definitely visit again!” – Samantha W. 1/19
“I really liked my stay at Royalton. I stayed there 1 week for a wedding. The staff was really nice and accommodating. The food was good (The buffet is amazing, lots of different choices each day) The beach was clean. The rooms were clean and the maids did a really nice job. I had a lot of fun and i would absolutely recommend this resort to anyone :)” – Marie-Michelle G. 12/18
“Wonderful resort with nightly entertainment and great food. The room service is microwave food, but the buffet and restaurants are great. I recommend getting diamond Hideaway if you are an adult. Diamond give you access to all the services and clubs. You also get a wonderful Butler who will Reserve restaurants, and help you acquiring items that you need for your stay. No matter how you’re staying this is a great Resort.” – Caleb J. 7/17
“This resort is a very nice luxury resort. It’s all inclusive, the food and drinks are on par with other luxury all inclusive resorts. The swim out rooms are great for families. The diamond club upgrade is nice and gets you access to additional pools and private beach area. The nightly shows they put on are first class and fun for the whole family. The kids pools are perfect with slides for the bigger kids and wading pools for the little ones. The beach did have a lot of seaweed though. This resort was only a few years old when we went so it was in excellent condition. Overall I would recommend this place for a family vacation.” – Eric W. 5/17
