Speaking as a Master Level Certified Destination Wedding Consultant (by the Destination Wedding Association) who has had weddings at both resorts, I have to say that Majestic comes out as a winner in all categories. The main problem we point out to potential clients who want the Melia is the resort layout. Because it was originally built as two resorts, (one the Tropical and the other the Caribe) many years ago it was built in an older style where they are smaller two - three story buildings around the resort. That has created a problem for destination wedding groups because we cannot guarantee that all of their rooms will be in the same area. You could have some in building 8 by the beach and others over the bridge towards the main resort area in building 60. If someone gets delayed getting anywhere there is no way to contact them. It creates problems that we don’t want our couples to face. I wish there was a way to 100% say your rooms are here but we cannot due to any last minute changes at the resort level.
With the both of the Majestic Resorts you have buildings that are centrally located, yes you might have one person on one side of the lagoon pool then another one right across the way, however truly you just across from each other. Their layout is better for bigger weddings and for weddings with seniors because of the central location to so many features at the resort. Plus with the Majestic you can use the all inclusive feature for your dinner. If you want it private then it is a cost but at least you have the option to rent the disco for the whole night. Other resorts do not give you the option.
I hope this helps! Best wishes on your special day!
