I booked and paid in advance for my wedding in Apr 2020. My country borders were closed in Feb 2020 and is still closed. I asked for a refund within reason since it’s been 1 year and I will like to get married. They will...not refund me at all or any part thereof. They are a big scam to take your money.More

If you are on the fence on where to have your wedding, book this venue. From the moment I inquired about having my wedding here to the actual wedding day, the service was outstanding. I want to tear up thinking about my wedding day that's...how perfect it was. Sofia was a dream, executed my vision perfectly. Christian was available for any questions or concerns. The service at dinner was impeccable, shoutout to Fran. And the bartenders were amazing, keeping the drinks flowing constantly. I am so glad we decided to use this venue for our wedding as it is very private, laid back, and just overall gorgeous. Thank you Sofia for making the wedding of our dreams a reality at Blue Venado!More

I was super impressed by the service I was provided at my wedding day, the team was spectacular and I could not have asked for a better wedding.The location of the wedding was in front of ocean with a great breeze. Highly recommend Itzel Perez...as wedding coordinator. She did a fantastic job.More

Had this location included for a lunch stop as part of a tour package with Cancun Adventures. The location has nice beach access and is pretty well appointed with the typical beach comforts. The Hammock Park was a great place to relax. The food was...average....Nothing really stood out as either outstanding or terrible. The food was simply average. The Lemonade and Hibiscus Juice was tasty and free. All other drinks have to be purchased...including the soda's. The service was also average. Frankly, the employees seemed disconnected and lacked any sign of sincere interest in the guests. They weren't rude, but they seemed very mechanical.More

Just yesterday my friends and I went on this new tour which turned out to be a great experience. We met the chef, who is doing an outstanding job entertaining the guests. There was delicious food, great company and interesting activities. Recommend to everybody. Good...option for people who travel alone - you can meet new people on the tour. Thank you, chef Leon & Team))))))))More

We came here as part of a cruise ship excursion and just fell in love with the place. The buildings and beach are so natural looking and the whole place is very relaxing. We had an excellent lunch, good drinks, and found all the facilities...in great shape. They were setting up for a wedding as we left and it looked so beautiful and romantic! Our only issue was the rocks in the beach. The sand is lovely and the waves were so tempting but the rocks mixed in the sand can be sharp. Water shoes solved that problem for us - if you plan to swim of body surf here you should bring a pair.More

WE LOVED THIS PLACE!!! The buffet was soooo good! The view can't be beat! You are literally eating on the beach but with the comforts of home. The bar mixes really good drinks too! They have different setups right on the beach, cabanas, bean bags,...umbrellas, beds...they even have swings around the bar. This is a really cool spot, hidden away from everyone. If you're near by, this is a must do! I can try to upload pics if it lets me later on.More

I visited Blue Venado as a possible venue for our wedding next year. Communication with the wedding planners was a breeze—they were friendly and very easy to communicate with/get all my questions answered. I communicated with Miriam over email, and on the day of our...menu tasting, Mari was the coordinator. Mari was wonderful! Very friendly, patient, and receptive to all our concerns and questions. I was debating hiring an outside wedding planner at first, but after meeting her, I’m fully confident everything will be amazing with her ! The menu tasting itself was amazing!! We were so full after all the food!! Includes canapés (small bites), appetizers, a main, and dessert—-everything was delicious!! We loved the kataifi shrimp, chicken sticks with bleu cheee sauce, arrachera with chimichurri, bruschetta, ceviche, berry salad, pargo fish filet, and beef medallions with mushroom sauce. We had a hard time deciding on the dessert—-chocolate cake with rum sauce VS tiramisu—-delicious! The venue itself is gorgeous—-blue water, chill music, private beach with straw covered umbrellas, hammocks, and very rustic-heavy decor (mirrored doors, string lights). The palapa where the reception will be held is huge! Can’t wait for our wedding to be at this gorgeous place, and after meeting Mari and some of the staff, we have full trust it will be amazing!!More
