9. What Brides Said...

“We got married here recently and we had the best experience. They will bend over backwards to make sure you have the wedding you pictured within whatever budget you have in mind. Our wedding was just the two of us and the hotel worked with me to get it done in a very short amount of time. The ceremony went perfectly.” – Hedda

Bride and groom Live Aqua Mexico

“We were blown away by the breathtaking beauty and impeccable service at RH. We were married on the beach and every detail was arranged and taken care of. From beginning our trip with champagne in the lobby to rose petals on our bed after our beach ceremony- every detail was handled beautifully. The food was AMAZING. We had Chefs Table on our wedding night and were blown away by sous chef, Isais, creations. I will recommend Royal Hideaway to everyone I know and look forward to visiting again soon! Thank you for making our wedding and honeymoon so unforgettable, RH!” – Ashley S.

10. Why We Like It (Pros/Cons)

There’s no doubt that Royal Hideaway Playacar is a beautiful resort.

Here’s what our wedding planners had to say:

Things we love:

Playacar has a gorgeous beach…that’s what it’s known for. So if a gorgeous white-sand beach and turquoise waters are a must, a resort in Playacar like the Royal Hideaway is the way to go.

However, there are a few things to keep in mind before choosing this resort for your destination wedding…

royal playacar pools

Things we don’t love:

For one, it’s located in a hurricane zone.

So if you’re getting married during hurricane season (June-November), you may want to consider another location.

Also, the prices can be a bit high.

But when you compare them to other resorts in the Riviera Maya, they’re actually quite reasonable.

Elizabeth from our team says…

It’s kinda generic, small boutique-ey, nice beach, that’s pretty much it. If you’re considering Royal Hideaway you’ll also want to check out the El Dorado Royal, El Dorado Casitas, or even Hotel Xcaret Arte.Elizabeth wedding planner

So if you’re looking for a stunning resort with impeccable service, Royal Hideaway Playacar is a great choice.

Just be sure to keep the hurricane risk in mind!
