The Resort - Gran Porto Real Resort & Spa, Playa del Carmen, Mexico

After a lot of research and going back and forth we finally decided on the Gran Porto Real in Playa del Carmen as our resort of choice. We wanted a smaller resort so our guests wouldn't have to waste time looking for each other but also wanted to ensure that they wouldn't be bored. This resort fit our needs perfectly - 278 suites ensured an intimate experience and being steps from Quinta Avenida ensured our guests wouldn't need to travel far to experience life outside the resort.

I wish we had it in our budget to do a site visit before booking the venue for our wedding but our travel agent had personally visited this resort and highly recommended it based on our needs. I also chatted with a few past GPR brides who are part of Best Destination Wedding and they all had nothing but good things to say about the resort. Here are a few pictures I found online:

This elegant resort has been consistently recognized for its outstanding hospitality, the original d├ęcor in its suites, its bountiful array of restaurants, bars and lounges, the ample day and night activities program and its exclusive SPAreal. Gran Porto Real guarantees a memorable vacation experience for guests of all ages.

Caribbean breezes and impressive colonial architecture are complemented with unparalled Mexican hospitality to offer you an idyllic vacation in Gran Porto Real style.
You will find a special detail in every corner... and a flavor festival in every meal.
As you arrive… time seems to stop…

Gran Porto Real is located on the beach, in downtown charming Playa del Carmen, only 30 minutes from Cancun International Airport, 5 minutes from famous Xcaret theme park and a 45 minute ferry ride from Cozumel.
