Where is the Majestic Elegance Cancun?
The hotel is located in an area called Costa Mujeres. In order to get to Costa Mujeres, you fly into the Cancun Airport, and then you would get a transfer that would take 40 minutes to arrive at the hotel.
When you book Majestic Elegance through a destination wedding planner or travel agent, chances are your transfers will be included.
It is located away from the Cancun hotel zone, in an exclusive area that is comprised of Costa Mujeres and Playa Mujeres, a new and exclusive hotel zone.
Although it may seem far away, it is 10 minutes from the Playa Mujeres Golf Course, only 30 minutes from the Cancun Hotel Zone and most tours and day trips that you may be interested in picking up at the hotel lobby.

The rooms are spacious and start as junior suites, so all rooms have at least an integrated sitting area. The bathroom and room are an open concept, so if you are sharing with someone you don’t know very well, this may be a little uncomfortable.
Junior suites are located on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floor with varying views. All ground floor rooms are swim-out suites, and then the top floor is either private rooftop with plunge pool, in the adult’s area or private rooftop with jacuzzi in the family area.

Well, it is BOTH. The hotel is comprised of 70% adults-only rooms and 30% family-friendly rooms Most restaurants and service can accommodate all ages, but there are areas for both families and adults to lounge about in whatever atmosphere they prefer.
The Beach at the Majestic Elegance
The beach at the Majestic Elegance hotel is gorgeous. It is long, and wide and has a huge area of soft white sand. The water is turquoise and the water entry is smooth, there are no rocks.
So far, there are no hotels close by, you can see the Catalonia Costa Mujeres being built and the Riu Palace Costa Mujeres in the distance, but it is a fairly private beach area.
Food & Drink
Lots of choices here! Buffet, seafood, steakhouse, Japanese (with teppanyaki!), Mexican, Italian, fast food, and a gourmet open exclusively for adults 18+.
There are 12 bars! In addition to the upper lobby piano bar (with live music in the evening), you have the lower lobby, open though until 1am, a swim-up bar in the main pool, the sports bar that is open all night, and a few more! In addition, the adults-only section has 4 swim-up bars in addition to the others available on-site (we all love a good swim-up bar!)
Wedding Packages at the Majestic Elegance Cancun
The Majestic Elegance offers several wedding packages and a slew of wedding venues and event locations. Here is a breakdown of costs for the wedding package as well as a list of wedding locations.
Free Destination Wedding Package at Majestic Elegance
Is the Free destination wedding package too good to be true? Well, the Majestic Elegance does offer a base package for $1250 for a symbolic ceremony. This package is offered for free when your group booked 105 paid room nights.
So, get 30 rooms for 4 nights, and you have 120 nights. In the case that you are a Canadian destination wedding bride, you only need 15 rooms for 7 nights.
The free wedding package inclusions are:
Ceremony location (garden gazebo, beach locations, or piano terrace)
Bouquet, boutonniere, one bag of rose petals
Wedding cake for up to 60 guests
Semi-private dinner for up to 60 guests, steakhouse or mar restaurants
A few other inclusions…
After that, you can add on as much or as little as you want. Add on a cocktail hour, opt for a private reception, or keep it simple and keep costs down.
Affordable Destination Weddings
The Majestic Elegance offers really affordable destination wedding packages.
Let’s say you want a total package for 60 guests. Here is an example with a semi-private cocktail hour, and a private reception with DJ for 3 hours in an included wedding location.
$1250 ceremony, bouquet & boutonniere, cake and toast
$124 two extra bridesmaids’ bouquets, 2 extra boutonnieres
$360 cocktail hour add on (open bar, semi-private locations, hors d’oeuvres)
$3300 ‘classy’ buffet reception (3 hours open bar, basic white décor, service staff)
$650 DJ, MC, sound system for 3 hours
TOTAL COST FOR 60 PERSON DESTINATION WEDDING
$5684 for 60 people.
Please keep in mind that this does not include photography or extra décor. Also, with 60 guests, you normally attain your 105 room nights, which would remove the initial $1250 fee, leaving you at $4434 for 60 guests!
If you decide to splurge and use the sky gazebo and lounge location, you need to pay an additional $1200-1500. If you want the sky gazebo and terrace area, the rental is $1200, if you want the entire location, the rent is $1500.
You can pay half as a deposit to save the location payable at the time of booking, the other half is paid once you arrive at the hotel. Also, remember that we pay the other half of the rental fee with 105 room nights. We love spoiling our couples.
Group Rates at the Majestic Elegance
Since the Majestic is new to Mexico and a brand new hotel, we can currently access really low group rates. Rates start at $160 per person for a double occupancy junior suite with an outdoor jacuzzi and include airport transfers.
Majestic Elegance Cancun Wedding Venues
There are several included wedding locations as well as a few that do have an additional fee.
The garden gazebo is centrally located off the main lobby area. This wedding venue is included as part of the wedding packages at the Majestic Elegance
Capacity of the Garden Gazebo: 100 guests
The piano terrace is located right off the piano lounge near the main lobby. With ocean views and great views of the resort, it is a popular choice as a wedding location at the Majestic Elegance.
Capacity of the Piano Terrace: 60 guests for ceremony or cocktail and 40 guests for a wedding reception
Beach Gazebo & Beach Weddings
We don’t have pictures of the beach gazebo since it isn’t even built yet. Don’t worry, we’ll get them for you as soon as it exists as we love weddings at Majestic Elegance!
You can check out our main beach video so you have an idea of what the beach is like at the Majestic Elegance hotel.
Beach Gazebo Capacity: no maximum
Beach Wedding Capacity: 450 guests for ceremony, cocktail or reception
Wedding Ballroom & Wedding Terrace
We have seen a lot of hotels and a lot of wedding venues. This is the only hotel that I know of that specifically built a ballroom with weddings in mind.
The ballroom is bright, beautifully decorated, and meant for wedding groups. With AC, lots of decorative detail, and capacity for large wedding groups, the wedding ballroom is pretty impressive as far as destination wedding locations go.
The Wedding Terrace is located right off of the wedding ballroom, this area has a roof, but is open.
With gorgeous sunset views over the lagoon and the ocean breeze, it is a fantastic option if you prefer outdoors. You can also combine the outdoor area and indoor area in the case of a very large wedding group.
Both areas can be used for wedding ceremonies, cocktail hours, and private receptions as well as a backup wedding venue.
The Capacity per area is 200 guests, which can be upped to 300 if you use both areas.
Sky Gazebo, Terrace and Lounge area
This area is split into 3 different areas:
The Sky Gazebo, is the ceremony location, with stunning ocean views. It has a capacity of up to 50 guests.
Then, the Sky Terrace, is the cocktail hour location or small reception location (up to 30).
The Sky Lounge, is the largest area and can be used for cocktail hours and receptions for up to 120 guests. It is overlooking the main pool area between the family-friendly buildings and the adult-only buildings. It is open to the general hotel guests until 6pm, so any private events can occur as of 6:30pm
Rental Costs for the Sky Gazebo Area
If you want to rent the Gazebo + Terrace, the cost is $1200 ($600 deposit, $600 on arrival)
If you want to rent the Gazebo and Lounge, the cost is $1500 ($750 deposit, $750 on arrival)

Back up Wedding Locations
We know inclement weather can happen, but fortunately, this hotel has beautiful backup wedding locations.
The wedding ballroom and wedding terrace can be used if not already booked for another event. They also have a convention center for larger groups.
