Honeymoon of our Dreams

Reviewed on 10/24/2013 Emily H

Beach Bum Carey assisted us in selecting the perfect honeymoon getaway! We went to El Dorado Royale Casitas in Mexico for an all-inclusive vacation. The experience was remarkable-- great service, accomodations, food and a bonus honeymoon package to boot. Our room had a small... Read More pool that connected to a lazy river that connected to the main pool with a swim up pool bar! Because we were guests of Beach Bum Carey, we received upgrades and special packages including a couple's massage on the beach, a candlelit dinner on the beach and a gourmet breakfast in bed. Beach Bum Carey made all of our honeymoon planning easy, and we were able to pay for the trip over the span of the year to make it more affordable. We will be using Carey to assist us in planning our future trips.

I had the pleasure of working with Beach Bum Nanda for my April 2015 destination wedding at Secrets Silversands. I can’t say enough about Nanda! She is polite, helpful, informative, and above all follows through on her word. When you work with Nanda, you feel as though you are... Read More her only client. We had an amazing experience with Nanda from start to finish. I always felt she had my back throughout the entire planning process. When the first hotel we booked gave away our reception location after we put down a deposit months before, she helped me cancel the wedding and was able to get every single penny back! She then helped me through the entire process again and we ended up planning the wedding of our dreams at Secrets Silversands. Working with Nanda gave me peace of mind. I was able to focus on planning the wedding instead of worrying about travel arrangements of my friends and family. She provided everyone with detailed information about the hotel, including room prices and amenities, so my guests were able to make an informed decision. She provided every single one of my 30 guests unbelievable service and managed to get everyone down to Mexico without any issues! Throughout the entire process she kept me updated via a spreadsheet with my guests arrival and departure times, which helped planning the pre and post wedding events. And the best part of it all, her services are FREE! If you are thinking of planning a destination wedding or even just a vacation, she is your girl. You will not be disappointed! That said, I can’t wait to book all my future Vacations with Nanda!

We will be using Danialle with BeachBum for more future vacations! She was a saint!! So attentive and sweet.

Working with Jaimi Smith at Beach Bum Vacations was one of the best fundamental decisions my husband and I made as we planned our destination wedding in Playa del Carmen. Jaimi was instrumental in the resort selection process. She was ever so patient with us as we balanced... Read More amenities with cost to help find a 'happy medium' option of a resort location. We knew cost (both of out of country travel and resort lodging) would be a defining point for many guests. She helped us select the perfect resort for our event (Playacar Palace). Our 80+ guests loved the resort. Beyond the resort selection, Jaimi's support through the 18+ month long planning process was impeccable. She helped us navigate every twist and turn of the planning. We never waited more than 2 hours for an email reply (even MONTHS before the event!). She maintains key relationships in the Riviera Maya and is able to navigate all situations. I would highly advise having Jaimi on your side to guide the destination wedding process. We literally had the best day(s) of our lives. Our guests loved working with her, and this was important, as it alleviated a lot of unnecessary burden on us. Everyone loved Jaimi. We can not say enough good things about her. Truly, a top notch experience!

Constant communication between us and the resort to make sure we have everything we want. Lisa even made an adorable website with us to send to our guests for all of the booking information.
