My husband and I hosted our wedding at Las Ranitas in March 2014.
Asking friends and family to spend money on a flight and then on a room is no small feat and we felt very responsible to choose the hotel that would lead to the most fun and happy weekend possible for our guests. We walked up and down the beach in Tulum when choosing a location, and at the end of the day, Las Ranitas was by far the best option.
In fact, after honeymooning at a 5 star near Playa, we would have rather stayed at Las Ranitas for our honeymoon. We stayed in a Cristales ground floor room and it was just as nice as our digs at the Riviera Maya location, but the beach is HANDS DOWN better than anything we found in Playa.
Value and room quality: The nicer rooms (Cristales, Coqui) are a best value for incredible rooms. Their more basic rooms are a bit overpriced for what you can get elsewhere, but their ocean facing views and doors that don't allow creepy crawlers into your room make them so much better than many other places.
Beach: This is the best part of the beach in Tulum. It's not nearly as crowded as it is further north, and the surf is more pleasant to swim in.
Restaurant: Their chef is INCREDIBLE. He serves up a mean Peruvian ceviche (which we consider ourselves to be aficionados of one of us being Peruvian...) and the chicken mole was spectacular.
Our guests told us that they loved the food served at the wedding and they loved the beach at Las Ranitas. The staff was really helpful. Again, we would have skipped the Riviera Maya portion of our honeymoon entirely and spent the whole beach portion of our trip here if we could do it all over again.
If anyone has questions on the pros and cons of having a wedding here, message me and I will be happy to share. All in all, we are very happy we had the wedding there and wouldn't change a thing other than a few mix-ups on alcohol which could be avoided in the future by the hotel better in my opinion. The vendors they brought in for candles, chuppah, flowers were excellent and again the food was amazing. And the views... just don't get much better than this!
