I was invited to speak before 250 wedding planners and travel professionals at the Love Mexico event in the Riviera Maya area south of Cancun in early December. The event was wonderful and I had the opportunity to meet and make new connections with some talented wedding pros in Mexico.
I also had the good fortune to tour many luxury resorts and properties as well as stay at one of the leading 5 diamond properties in the area. Grand Velas Riviera Maya is an all-inclusive family-friendly property with gorgeous views, food and amenities fit for a queen.
My room was spacious and thoughtfully laid out with an extremely comfortable bed, down pillows and luxurious down duvet. The bathroom was also large with double-sinks, deep jacuzzi soaking tub, separate shower, vanity and make-up mirror. All the things I look for in a great room.
I had my own private concierge and whenever I needed anything, she was there. The mini-refrigerator was fully stocked with soft drinks, bottle water, beer, wine and snacks. In addition, there was a very large balcony overlooking the pools and beach with one of my favorite treats, a lounge bed on the balcony.
I will not hesitate to recommend Grand Velas Riviera Maya to any couple wanting a truly luxurious experience and memorable wedding. Here are just a few photos of this glorious property.
