Panama Jack Resorts

 

I am over-the-moon excited to feature these brand new resort in Mexico for June: Panama Jack Cancun and Panama Jack Riviera Maya! There was a presentation about Playa Hotels and Resorts last month, which really peaked my interest in the whole chain! I was impressed, to say the least! There are a few other brands underneath the Playa Hotels and Resorts Chain, some which are pure LUXURY, but I really wanted to showcase Panama Jack Resorts for two main reasons: 1) They are BRAND NEW and 2) They are WAY UNDER PRICED for the value. Don’t expect a $1000 trip to Mexico or anything like that, but for the value they are a seriously good deal.

Just to give you an idea, these gem resorts are pricing around $1850/person for Destination Wedding Groups in shoulder season (based on flights out of Edmonton). To give you an idea, $1850/person is considered an average cost per guest across Canada. The resorts are far from average though!

 

 

The Panama Jack Outstanding Features

There are a few reasons why Panama Jack resorts offer a little bit extra to me. Although we all look for different things in a perfect resort experience, here are things that stood out to me:

  • Free Wi-fi (as someone who works while away – this is a big deal)
  • Family Friendly (with Camp Jack for the kids) – I usually prefer adults only myself, but the nice thing about family properties that offer outstanding features for children is a win-win because if the kids are at Camp Jack, they are not anywhere else!
  • Adding to my above point, adults staying at the Panama Jack Resorts have FULL Access to the ROYAL Playa del Carmen which is adults only
  • Room Service & Pool Service.
  • Evening Entertainment: Every night of the week!
  • Gorgeous Lead-in Suites. I know some people never pay to upgrade their room (which is okay!) but it makes my job a little easier when I know that everyone is getting a gorgeous room, regardless of budget!

 

The Locations

Panama Jack Cancun

Sometimes Cancun get a bad rap for being too touristy, but honestly the beaches can’t be beat. Perfect white sand and turquoise water, Panama Jack Cancun would be a perfect place for a beach wedding. Looking for a Catholic Wedding? This resort has an OVER WATER OPEN AIR CATHOLIC CHAPEL ON SITE ! Words can’t even explain how excited that makes me. I know sometimes brides want a religious ceremony, even if they do chose a destination wedding. This venue is truly one of a kind. You can also enjoy wine and tequila tasting with an on-site sommelier. Guests can also enjoy culinary and cocktail classes throughout their stay! They also have a Turtle release program August through November where over 10,000 eggs are hatched – if you have never experienced this, it truly is one of a kind. It is also a testimate to how perfect the beach is!

One thing I want to stress about this resort, it is in the perfect location. The Riviera Maya is a huge stretch of land but this resort is steps away from 5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen. You can walk there! Most resorts are a minimum ten minute cab ride away so if you are the type to venture out and explore off the resort, you could not imagine a better location! From Playa del Carmen, Cozumel is a $4USD ferry away.You are also located right next to the ROYAL Playa del Carmen which is an adults only resort that guests staying at Panama Jack have full access to. They also offer wine and tequila tastings throughout your week. Throughout a week stay, you can enjoy a Mexican Dinner Party on the pool deck and a White Affair Theme Party on the beach.

Panama Jack Weddings

 

I probably don’t need to remind you that one of the hardest parts of planning a destination wedding is finding a resort that is “good for every guests”. I really, truly believe that this resort is one of the bests for a “something for everyone” choice. Let me remind you that those of your guests looking for an adult only experience, guests have access to the ROYAL Playa del Carmen which is a sister resort that is adults only. The main reason it is hard to chose a Destination Wedding Resort is that after you make sure the resort will be suitable for your guests, you also need to make sure the resort offers great wedding packages and dream-worthy locations. Panama Jack also wins this category too!

The Free Packages

 

This is the only resort I know of that offers TWO free wedding packages. One is an amazing elopement packages (read more about what eloping really looks like here) and one is a small wedding package for those wanting something really intimate. I often talk about how there is nothing truly “free” as add ons tend to be expansive but these two packages are wonderful offers for those people wanting something really simple and beautiful. That being said, there are restrictions for dates and times that are available so if you plan on taking advantage of a free wedding package, prepare to be flexible with your dates and time 🙂

The Lavish and Opulent Packages

 

One of my main “deal-breakers” is not being able to have a private reception. I find that most of my clients want their wedding to feel special and private and are not happy with a restaurant reception. Even though they are getting married on the beach, they still want their first dance and bouquet toss. This is a much more complete wedding package for up to twenty guests (you can add more guests as well!)

  • Symbolic marriage ceremony and certificate by a bilingual secular officiant
  • Couples Massage
  • Romantic dinner for the couple
  • Bridal bouquet and groom boutonniere
