      I visited Azul View while it was under construction - if you do a search you'll probably find my review from my site visits.

        I am surprised that Karisma didn't make one of these resorts adult-only. They look great tho!

          I also visited Azul View while I was down for my site visit. It looks like it will be amazing! It will be opening in October, if everything goes as planned. I just didn't care too much for the wedding coordinator. That was my big drawback. She is out of Miami and from what I'm told by the onsite planners, she has only been to the Azul resorts once. I figured she just didn't have the experience and knowledge I was looking for to plan the biggest day of my life.

              I sent an email to Azul Beach requesting wedding info and I received an email back from Nancy. It basically was links to the wedding info on the webpage. If she is in the states, then who is the coordinator at the resort? We are going on a site visit in April and would like a local contact. What is Lomas Travel role in planning a wedding at a Karisma Hotel? I have also came across LUXE weddings. If anyone who has planned a Karisma wedding would share their experiences with the process, I would be grateful.

                i have booked a wedding with a karisma hotel but not with azul. my experience has been great so far. my understanding is that lomas is the company karisma goes through to plan/order for the wedding. there is a wedding planner that takes care of your arrangements and then once you get to the resort there is another wedding planner specific to that resort that takes care of the arrangements from there. i don't have nancy, i have valeria and she has been awesome. i have screwed up my order tons of times and she has made all the adjustments right away. hope this helps?!

                  The person in the states I dealt with was Nancy. She is out of Miami.
                  When u go down for a site visit you will speak with Carolina who is with Karisma and Karla who is with Lomas. Both girls were very nice and showed us around but aren't allowed to talk about details, prices, packages etc.etc. I asked if a certain corner of the resort was available for the reception and they said "ask Nancy". How many people max? They said "ask Nancy."
                  I was there, in person but still couldn't plan anything with them. Very frustrating. Soo, I went with another resort.
                  But I can tell you I liked the hotels...just wouldn't get married there.

                    That is very frustrating!!!! I'm sure it is for them too. It is a turn-off though to have to deal with 2nd and 3rd parties. I also have read the threads about their outside photographer policy. However I LOVE the look and the idea of the hotel. I love the size and photos that I have seen of weddings there. I do feel it is going to be expensive though. That is why Brad and I are going to go see for ourselves. It sounds like I'll need to do some hard-core correspondence with Nancy before we go!

                      I just thought of something else, I wonder if I should contact Lomas now since it sounds like I will be working with them anyways. Then maybe when we go Karla will be able to talk about details with us.
