8. The Reef 28
★★★★★| Adults-only | All-inclusive | Playa Del Carmen | 120 rooms
Sometimes you want your wedding to be extra magical.
The Reef 28 offers many different wedding and honeymoon packages.
They come complete with personalized service.
I know what you’re thinking…
Other resorts offer similar packages — what makes this any different?
At The Reef 28, you can have a Mayan wedding!
Imagine… your big day with an ancient Mayan ceremony overlooking the sea.
Sounds extra magical, right?
9. Sandos Playacar Beach Resort
★★★★★| Adults-only section | All-inclusive | Playa Del Carmen
Although Sandos has a family section, I’m including it in this list because of their adults-only section called the Select Club.
The Select Club is 18+ with an adults-only pool area, premium bars, and a restaurant.
It even has a section of rooms for the adults-only club, so you can avoid listening to a child screaming next door to you.
Venue options when you say “I do” are a beachfront location, gazebo, or gorgeous gardens.
If you want a fully adults-only location, then this isn’t the place for you.
But, if you don’t mind kids corralled in a separate section from yours, then this is still a good option!
Having a special section for your stay will make you feel like a VIP…
Which is exactly how you should feel when you’re getting married!
10. Catalonia Royal Tulum
★★★★★| Adults-only section | All-inclusive | Tulum | 288 rooms
Catalonia Royal Tulum offers the best of both worlds.
Relax at the Alegria Spa or dance the night away at the resort club.
Wedding venue options include a furnished terrace, balcony, or paradise beachfront venue.
They offer unique wedding and honeymoon packages.
The difference from other resorts?
Some packages include a room upgrade and a mariachi trio for 45 minutes of your ceremony!
