Mexico here we come...Site Visits June 2-6th

Recommended Posts

I just returned from 5 days in Mexcio completing "site inspections". We stayed at Azul Beach for 2 nights. I loved the hotel however decided against it for my wedding for the following reasons.

 

1) not ideal for both kids and party minded guests. The main pool area (which is small) has a swim up bar and water basketball. Of course kids naturally grativate toward the hoop and ended up being right in your face as the pool is small and you have nowhere else to go. One kid almost knocked me off the "water bar stool". I plan on having my niece and nephews at my wedding and don't want to crowd everyone in one pool. The other two pools are also small (one is 2 ft deep and the other 3 ft deep).

 

2) Wedding location is too accessible to other guests. I watched a wedding while there on the beach in the gazebo(?). Although the setting was beautiful, there were about 15 people (nonguests of the wedding) not more than 15 ft away standing around in their swimsuits gawking at them during their ceremony.

 

I would consider the Azul Beach if I had a small, adult only wedding or for a honeymoon. Let me know if you want me to email pics.

Thanks for the info. My wedding is at Azul Beach in November. We're having about 40 guests, what do you think about the wave lounge for a cocktail hour and the terrace for the reception?

There were several wedding parties staying at Azul Beach when I was there. The hotel staff said they were doing a wedding each day for the next 5 consecutive days. We witnessed a cocktail party at the wave lounge one night. I thought it was a nice setting but remember that the wave lounge is not big. They used the covered area for the dance floor and most of the seating was on the grass or patio area but most people were either dancing or standing. We also witnessed a reception in the terrace area next to the buffet. I thought it was a nice location and everyone in the wedding party seemed really content.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
