After many trips to Isla Mujeres, my husband and I decided to tie the knot "destination style" and chose Avalon Reef Club as our venue. Much to our surprise 98 (yes 98) guests attended our wedding and 94 of them also stayed at Avalon.
We found the hotel to be clean and well kept. The tower rooms are being updated daily it seems and the studios are spectacular. You could not get closer to the ocean unless you stayed in a boat!
We cannot say enough about the staff at Avalon. We had over 55 guests arriving on two separate flights within a half an hour of each other on the Saturday prior to our wedding. The staff were so well organized. They had beverages waiting for all guests and had already completed a majority of the paperwork that our guests needed to sign in order to check in. Line ups were short and Management ensured that "all hands were on deck" at the check-in counter. I would say that ALL 55 guests were checked in and on their way to their rooms within 40 minutes of arriving at the hotel.
The food at Avalon was incredible. The selection was so vast and, anything they didn't have, they would be happy to make for you. With 98 guests we had many many requests for all different types of food from vegetarian to non spicy burritos that would not normally be on the menu.....lol. The staff ensured all tastes were met including those of the children in attendance.
Our guests enjoyed day after day of music and DJ entertainment poolside surrounded by never-ending drinks. The staff were so much fun to be around....so very friendly and accommodating.
The day of the wedding was the only day it rained that week....and did it ever rain.....all morning and all afternoon. Avalon's Food and Beverage Manager Ricardo came to the rescue. Within three hours he had transformed an outdoor wedding into an indoor one. We used Avalon's reception area for the ceremony (it was originally supposed to be in the gazebo outside) and took over the restaurant for our dinner and dancing (which too was originally supposed to be outside). Ricardo had an entire other area made into a restaurant for the other guests at the hotel complete with comfy chairs and beautiful decor. The guests were not put out at all and "congratulatory cheers" could be heard all around. Ricardo even had a dance floor built for us!! It was just incredible the lengths he (and all of his staff) went to to ensure our wedding was perfect for us....and it was.
We would highly recommend Avalon Reef Club to any traveler that wishes to stay on Isla Mejures. We are planning our next trip there in April!!
