What's New on - Weddings at Meliá Azul Ixtapa

On a recent visit to Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo in Guerrero, Mexico, we toured Meliá Azul Ixtapa to get an idea of what the resort offers for weddings. This family-oriented all-inclusive property has 400 rooms, seven restaurants, three outdoor swimming pools, a fabulous park for kids, and numerous activities to keep guests busy. Located a few minutes north of the main Ixtapa hotel strip, the resort enjoys a more private atmosphere and is surrounded by green hills and the beautiful Pacific Ocean.

For wedding groups, Meliá Azul Ixtapa has some excellent ceremony and reception sites. One of the more popular sites is a platform situated away from the main resort grounds. A stroll down a wooden boardwalk leads you to the platform where you can enjoy privacy for your wedding and a breathtaking view of the ocean. Nearby is the Oyster Bar restaurant, which can be used for a private reception dinner. Other wedding locations include a large pergola (covered platform) beside the pool, and a large open green space near the resort's Convention Center. If your guests are not staying at the resort, they will have to purchase a day/night pass to attend your wedding.

During my planning for my honeymoon I started thinking about Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo - what a beautiful and romantic place! Still, I was not sure if I should stay in Ix or Zihu - but then again, maybe I'll be spending more time indoors ;-D
