We stayed here for 6 nights with our family and friends for our wedding, we had about 9 or 10 rooms booked at the resort and everyone loved it. Even those who weren't staying at the resort wished that they did. The beach is breathtaking, the staff were all friendly and helpful, we had a lot of fun times with the bar tenders who made delicious and creative cocktails. The front desk receptionists were very helpful with handing out my gift bags to all our guests and with giving directions and where to go, thank you Mayumi and Sandy!
We booked a Beach front Deluxe room with our own private rooftop terrace and sunbed which we made good use of mostly at night time, we had a friend or 2 over and would watch for shooting stars (first night there I saw 7 of them), listen to the ocean and just hang out for hours.
Our wedding was so perfect, the food was amazing! We had crab and shrimp cake which was to die for, the rack of lamb so succulent, ginger salmon satay tender, ceviche, guacamole, seafood tostada refreshing and tasty, tequila shrimp tacos, tuna nachos, trio of sushi, quesadillas, caprese salad all very good!! And the Maya style pina coladas YUM!!! Also Cecilio made us all a special cocktail one night at the bar that my brother decided to name sexcilio haha...it was delicious!!
I had some small issues with planning the wedding at first, I had to change wedding planners because she wasn't reliable or professional and emails weren't always answered. It did stress me out quite a bit. But then someone recommended a different planner to me and she was awesome, very organized, knowledgeable and just what I wanted, thank you Marion from Destination Weddings for making my dream wedding come true! The reservations agents were all very good and helpful with sending me rooming lists of all my guests and answering all my questions, thank you Anna and Jessica! The servers and bartenders were the best at El Bistro, they became more like our friends. Thank you Cecilio, Emilio and everyone else at El Bistro (I don't remember everyone's names I'm sorry). And thank you to the housekeepers, the security and bellmen I didn't get your names but we really appreciated all your hard work!
A few small suggestions:
*Adding Mexican food and some simple "bar food" to your dinner menu, I found myself ordering off the lunch menu every time we had dinner there because I liked it better. I really wanted Mexican food for our first night there and there really wasn't any on the dinner menu and sometimes you just want a burger/nachos or something simple for dinner. You were very accommodating in taking my requests and letting me order off the lunch menu so thank you very much!
*Adding some local art to the walls in the rooms, the simplicity of the rooms are perfect for the location, but just a piece or 2 on the walls would have brightened it up a little. Also maybe a table and chair/lounger inside the room as well would be nice. It was a bit of a challenge to find a place to put some of my things like books, lotions, sunscreen, wine glasses etc.
*Offering complimentary bottled water on a daily basis in the room would be nice as well instead of just the first day.
My husband and I are already talking about going back to Cabanas Tulum for one of our anniversaries. We really loved it and they made us feel at home there. I can't thank you enough!
