8. Activities & Entertainment

Your wedding is obviously going to be the center of everyone’s attention.

But, your destination wedding is about more than just a few hours right? 

There has to be something to keep everyone entertained for the whole stay. 

Wondering what there is to do at The Fives Beach Residences?

Where do I start?

As it turns out, with scuba diving...

I love checking out the underwater landscape — it’s so calming. 

And, if you’ve never scuba dived before, you can learn!

If you’d rather stay above the surface, there are 7 amazing pools to explore. 

Then, there’s the obligatory ‘me time’. 

It’s a special occasion for you so a little pampering and relaxation at Fives Spa is a must. 

There’s also The Fives Plaza at the heart of the resort. 

It’s the ideal place to eat, drink, work out at the fitness center, or grab a coffee and watch the world go by. 

Have Wedding Guests Who Need Activities for their Kids?

You don’t need to worry about the younger members of your party feeling left out. 

The Kids Club Playhouse is the place for kids aged 4-12 to join in with activities such as fitness classes, arts and crafts, and video games. 

There’s also a toy room and a kids pool.

For little ones with style. 

Which Popular Attractions are Close to the Hotel?

Want to venture away from the amenities of the resort?

I hear you. 

It’s good to spread your wings and see the sights of the area.

You can check out the food and entertainment there. 

For other sights and attractions, you’ll need to venture a little further…  

There are more than 50 natural and cultural attractions!

And nature park Xcaret is just 16.7 km away.  

9. What Brides Said...

“We decided to have our wedding at the Fives and we were thoroughly pleased at the level of service, as well as safety precautions, that the resort took during our visit…The entire staff at the resort was friendly and accommodating and they consistently remembered us day to day with the variety of activities/lounging we were doing.”



wedding planner and bride

“All 46 of our wedding guests stayed from December 11th-20th. Although a few hiccups along the way, not only did the wedding team make our wedding an absolute DREAM. But they also made me fall in love with Mexico again. I’ve been to a few resorts in Mexico but nothing can compare to the hard work and warm attitude all the employees put into making staying at the fives great.”


10. Why We Like It

We’re always completely honest and open at

You’ll never see us recommending any resorts, accommodation, or wedding packages that we don’t love. 

And we’ll always point out what you should know. 

Good and a little less good. 

So, here’s my take on The Fives Beach Residences as a destination wedding choice. 

I love:

  • The array of stunning wedding venues available. 
  • Downtown Playa Del Carmen is within easy reach. 
  • Dining and drinking experiences for all tastes. 
  • Penthouse suites with the ultimate luxury feel and incredible rooftop views. 
  • Activities for younger guests aged 4-12. 

I will say that sights like the Ruins of Tulum are not on the doorstep. 

I did not love:

  • Service and convenience issues – had to walk halfway through the resort to find beach towels!
  • Their wedding team is tough to work with.

But that’s not a problem because we’ll make sure you get tours and activities to entertain everyone. 

You and your guests can choose the experiences you want. 

"Awesome venues, reasonable prices of wedding packages. Absolutely love the Honey Money program with wedding credits. So cool!"

    Hi, we was just looking at a rough price for a wedding in Mexico, the gazebo wedding looks a good start, just enquiring roughly how much this would cost or if you recommend anywhere else, it would only be a small wedding with roughly 15-20 guests.
    Also we only recently returned from Riu tequila in playa del carmen and we did see a couple of beach weddings, are there any private areas for beach weddings?
    Many thanks.
