    I’d also note that a HUGE con is they only allow 6 external guests. Most resorts allow 10-20% external guests of your wedding guest number but this resort doesn’t. I’m not sure why but they were very adamant we can only have 6

    We planned for on a 300 person wedding in 2023 and they still said no

      Hi Vanessa,

      That’s weird because Secrets Moxche does specify that it’s 10% “You must be aware that the services provided by the resort are for guests staying on property, which is why it is important that at least 90% of the wedding guests stay with us, not to mention it will be easier if you want to program any other activities for your wedding party while you are here. Guests who chose to come only for the event will have to purchase a day or wedding pass.”
