Erin & John (New Jersey, USA)
"I've worked in the wedding and events industry throughout my career and can say that Arlenis is 100% the best planner I have ever met. We are so lucky that we found Arlenis to plan our wedding as we had quite a tall request with a sunrise (6am!) ceremony. Arlenis is happy and positive, strong and smart, knows how to make any situation into a great one, and wonderful with people from finicky small children to emotional adults. She made us feel like the most important couple on the day of our wedding and she was responsive and full of "yes's" during the planning phase. Arlenis made everything we could ever want happen - and so much more. We are so thankful that we met Arlenis who we will always think of when remembering our wedding day. She is a beautiful and kind person and exactly the type I'd want in charge on any important day of my life."
Samantha & Ken (Florida, USA)
On the wedding day Arlenis did not miss a beat she was organized, prepared, It was flawless and absolutely beautiful! I had pictured what the wedding would look like in my head but Arlenis made it come to life and it looked better than anything I could have imagined. Not only was Arlenis great with the planning and the details of the wedding but most importantly she is an amazing person! She truly cares about what she does and has a passion for it, she make Ken and I feel so special ( which is not easy when you are getting married in a huge resort that does 3 weddings a day) she made us feel comfortable, and she made us feel loved. She hold a very special place in our hearts and we are thankful for everything she did. Any bride would be lucky to have her be a part of your very special day and we are happy we did!"

"Our wedding day was so special!!! It was an amazing day that we couldn't have achieved without Arlenis. She's very patient and so helpful... This is what you really need when you plan a destination wedding. She's so knowledgeable and will guide you on every single step until the wedding day and even after! She's so organised and efficient. One can see the passion on the job he does with love and care. I can't find anymore words to describe how wonderful Arlenis was and all our guests and family loved her very much. Our wedding was a successful event because of her skills and dedication. We love you Arlenis!!! Thank you so much for everything!!!"

"Arlenis was INCREDIBLY helpful and organized for our Tulum wedding July 15th. She took care of every last detail and had wonderful local vendors that created gorgeous bouquets, cakes, etc. She went above and beyond while showing us around different venues and options in Tulum and made my wedding day a breeze. Everything went smoothly and was gorgeous! I highly recommend using Arlenis for your beach wedding - she made my wedding week a super relaxing experience. She was on top of all of it with a gracious smile on her face!"
Ashley & Mathew (Bufalo NY, USA)
"Arlenis, what can we say! We couldn't have had such an amazing wedding without you... With doing a destination wedding, it can be very stressful, but working with you gave us no worries at all. You had everything covered from the hair/makeup, minister, flowers, location, and worked closely with Quetzal too! It was a dream come true. AND of course we got the one rainy/windy day and we were not at all worried, because we knew you were there to take care of us and make it work no matter what! We couldn't have asked for a better day, rain and all!! We had so much fun, and our photos turned out amazing... Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for helping to make our day PERFECT! We love you!! BEST WEDDING COORDINATOR EVER!!! xoxo"

"Arlenis, thank you so much for the wonderful job you did with our wedding in December in Playa del Carmen! You were there to help us every step of the way and to advocate on our behalf. I always appreciated your responsiveness, your creativity, and your attention to detail. Please let me know if we can ever give a prospective client a recommendation for your services!!"
Samantha & Joaquin (Wisconsin, USA)
We cannot imagine our wedding day without you—you made everything so seamless. Neither of us experienced a single moment of stress and the day was everything we hoped for and so much more. We are so glad that you were a part of it and helped our vision come to fruition. Thank you over and over. We are so happy with every moment, it was our dream celebration to begin the next chapter of our lives.

The words said over and over again by all friends and family - "Best Wedding EVER!!"
We had ~60 guest for a 4 day 3 night wedding vacation at Le Reve Hotel on July 5th, 2014. Guests flew in from LA, SF, the Midwest, Phoenix, China and Iran. We paid for everyone's stay and excursions during those 4 days. The buyout of the hotel was amazing. I read through many reviews of Le Reve and thought that yeah it would be nice and wedding would be fun but did not expect the magic of Arlenis and Le Reve to occur. It is really difficult to fully describe those amazing days without being there.
Every detail, every moment, I wish I can relive over and over. Arlenis not only did her job, but really cared about us, like it is her own wedding. Many friends of mine had extravagant weddings themselves and they all agreed this was the best wedding ever.
Jumping into the pool at the end of the wedding party with our clothes on was "one off the bucket list" as quote by my closest friends. We had welcome dinner Thurs night, excursion Friday and wedding Sat in the pm. Weather was just perfect for each moment. Everyone did not want to leave, did not want it to be over and I am soo glad we chose Le Reve and Arlenis!!!
Annie & Andrew (Boston, USA)
Arlenis was simply amazing. I honestly don't know how she is so good at her job. Le Reve does a LOT of weddings for a property of its size, many of them being resort buy-outs, and I can only assume that many of her brides are high maintenance like me. We exchanged hundreds, if not thousands, of emails all of which were returned promptly and completely. There was no question that she didn't answer; no idea that she didn't make happen, no detail that she didn't remember. About half way through our planning we were introduced to her assistant Ana who is equally as amazing. The greatest part about them is that they genuinely want us brides to be as happy as possible. It doesn't seem like just a job to them - they seemed so truly invested in our lives and making the start to our union as perfect as possible. They did a fantastic job coordinating our wedding.
Edith & Brian (Washington DC, USA)
Our wedding was the best day of our lives. We cannot even image having it any other way. Arlenis was simply amazing. She was on time and always smiling. There was nothing that I asked for that she couldn't provide. I was even able to use my balloons at the wedding despite the doubts... She made it work.
Malcom & Sarah (New York, USA)
I had my wedding at Le Reve in November. We scouted out other hotels in Mexico and the Caribbean. We looked at a wide range of hotels. The moment we met Arlenis, the wedding planner that works for the hotel, we knew we would be in good hands. They do a lot of weddings here and know what they are doing. A few of the others hotels had onsite coordinators, but they did not hold a candle to Arlenis. I knew I could trust her and that she would make my wedding less stressful for me. Many of our guests made comments to us at how great of a job Arlenis did on our wedding weekend.
We held a cocktail hour on Thursday night, a rehearsal dinner on Friday night, and the wedding on Saturday. We also had a ladies only lingerie shower and a children's birthday party. Arlenis helped arrange everything and every event was so memorable. I really can't think of anything that went wrong. Arlenis and the hotel exceeded our expectations. I feel like we have a family down in Playa del Carmen and we can't wait to go see them.
Eugene & Jihye (New York, USA)
Arlenis really is the best. We can’t say enough good things about her. She made the whole experience so much better. She is so sweet, tactful, bright, thoughtful and energetic! She made our guests feel very welcome – and impressed us all with her memory of everyone’s names. She was a very tactful go-between when we were negotiating with the hotel about the contract. We really appreciated the role she played there. Arlenis offered to help us put together OOT bags – and went to Walmart and bought snacks and water for that purpose.
Arlenis made many helpful suggestions and raised questions regarding little details we hadn’t thought of. Our guests were unanimously of the opinion that Arlenis was a major major factor in making the wedding, and the whole time at Le Reve, incredible. Thank you Arlenis! When you visit New York, you have to spend time with us.
