Booking and FAQ


Booking and FAQ


To be considered part of Essence & James's Wedding Group, you must book through the group rates and not through any other method (even directly with the hotel). We have negotiated competitive group rates and secured a room block to make this as easy as possible. To participate in all of the wedding-related activities, you must stay at Royalton Riviera Cancun as part of the wedding group.

To receive pricing information, please choose the "Book Now" button below and we will be in touch with you within 5 business days with a price quote. We will not proceed to charge your card until we receive confirmation from you after we have sent you a price quote! If you have any questions, please email groups@barefootbridal.com.


Frequently asked questions


+ Can I Set Up a Payment Plan?

Yes! You can structure your payments in one of 3 ways:

  • You can make a deposit and then let the balance charge automatically on the balance due date.
  • You can make a deposit and ask us to calculate an even amount to charge every month with the last charge to be made on the balance due date.
  • You can make a deposit and click the "Make a Payment" button whenever you want to make an additional payment in any amount and if there's any balance left, it will be charged on the balance due date.

+ What is the Cancellation Policy?

Deposits made are nonrefundable, unless travel insurance is purchased and certain requirements for cancellation are met. The cost of travel insurance is always nonrefundable.

+ Is Travel Insurance Available?

Travel Insurance is available and highly recommended. Rates are per person, depending on the cost of your trip. If you choose to opt in for travel insurance, we will provide you a quote with a breakdown of travel insurance so you can confirm before you choose to purchase it. Travel insurance is nonrefundable once purchased.

+ Will I Need a Passport?

Yes! A passport book is needed to fly to and from the U.S. and Mexico - please take the time now to locate your passport and check the expiration date; make sure it is valid for 6 months after your anticipated return date. Check this site for more passport info: https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/passports.html

+ Can You Help Me with Round-Trip Airport Transportation?

Yes. We will include direct transfers through a reputable company with your quote.

+ Is there a tourist VISA fee?

Your tourist VISA fee should be included with your airfare. You should not need to purchase a separte tourist VISA to enter Mexico.

+ What is the Weather Like?

The weather in Mexico is hot and humid with averages in the 80s year around. Humidity is lowest during Dec-Feb and increases the closer you get to August. Hurricane season starts in June and continues through November. There is a gentle breeze that comes off the ocean on most days, so make sure to pack plenty of sunscreen because the breeze makes it easy to forget just how hot and strong the sun really is!

+ Do I need an Adapter for my Electronics?

You do not need an adapter for your electronics; the outlets in the Mexico will accept U.S. plugs.

+ What if I want to Book Excursions?

I can assist you with booking excursions. Let us know me what kind of activities you'd like to do, how many people, and the date you'd like to go and we can get you rates.

+ Can you help me book flights or a package to include flights?

Barefoot Bridal can assist with airfare. Please include in the special requests of your booking form your depature gateway and any specific flight requests. We will be sure to include a flight with your quote. Flights are only released 330 days prior to departure.

+ I found a cheaper price online, can you match it?

Finding cheaper rates than the group rates online is very rare! However, if you have found cheaper rates, please take a screen shot that includes the final total price (with all taxes and fees), what the price includes (dates and room category), the website you found it on and the date and time on your computer and send it to groups@barefootbridal.com. We will ask the hotel for a price match. It may take several business days to hear back from the groups department for the match. We have been successful in the past in reducing entire group contracts, but hotels can also reject price matches due to having a group contract in place.
