There are many rooms that have a garden or pool view...not all of them will have an oceanview. If you google "azul sensatori map" you can get a layout of the property...which can provide you with more information on which ones have an ocean view.

I also have a friend who went there last year and says that she loved it.

I have a funny story to share:

So ive been in wedding planning mode for a while now so I guess im past the initial stage where you realize "OMG IM GONNA BE MARRIED!"

My FI on the other hand had this moment last night. I received the contracts and other paperwork form the resort. I needed my FI signature on one of the contracts. It was the funniest thing ever. He looked at the paper and it said "groom's signature" and he froze. He's like "Holy $%^&, thats me......" he was staring at he paper for what seemed like 10 minutes and about to sign but then he'd just make the signing movement in the air but couldnt bring himself to put the pen to paper. I was dieing of laughter. I guess I didn't realize that this was a big thing for him. I think he was sweating.

Well the contract is now signed so theres no turning back lol

Does anyone have more information about the wedding packages, extras and the list for each one including private reception options? I've looked into their website but I'm having trouble finding where you can request such a thing. Does anyone have the email address for the wedding coordinators there? Or if you could please send me all information that you have to my email address at: k_morales84@hotmail.com it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much :)

Alright, girls who were married here.... Any suggestions for photo spots?  I know the pier, Le Chique, the lobby, the bridge over the pool, by a palm tree, and I think I saw some type of cool carriage or something in one pic.  Is there anywhere else that is cool for pictures that I'm missing?

Jamie... sorry it took me a while to find her communication to me... just couldn't remember where I found her, but then remembered it was facebook!!!  I met her on the Sensatori page.  Here was her email to me on a few things....  hope she doesn't mind me posting.... I removed her name.SUBMIT


Don't use Caribe photo is my biggest piece of advice...but I'll get into that later... The hotel was great- they made a effort to put the wedding group in the same building as we requested, the food was good and we didn't have any complaints from our guests. We loved the room they put us in- it was a corner swim-up suite in the family section (we have a daughter) right in front of the beach. We loved it. We did have a small problem with the toilet the first night but we called the front desk in the morning and someone was there within 10 minutes and it was fixed with 45 mins or so....
They had had a week of rain before we got there so the pools were really cold which was disappointing for us as we chose that hotel on reviews saying the pools were great (review in July & August, I guess) but after having 4 days od hot weather, the pools warmed up and were really nice for the last few days there.
I felt the wedding planning left a bit to be desired...If you are experienced in planning a wedding then it shouldn't be a problem as they were pretty good as following my directions but not very good at offering advice. They did make make a mistake on the groom corsage (wrong flower) but I wasn't very worried about that....We had a Sky wedding and it was beautiful but we had not met with the minister before hand and she mis-prounounced my name all through the ceremony. Also, we had legally got married in Canada before we left but none of our wedding guests knew that so I had made it very clear to our on-site wedding planner that we needed to sign documents and it need to look official etc. he assured me that we would and there would be a certificate etc. Well the minister did the whole ceremony without having us sign anything, pronounced us husband & wife and had us walk down the aisle. Afterwards, I went over to the wedding planner & reminded him that we were supposed to sign...so we went back to the table under the gazebo but the certificate was hokey and had no place for the witnesses to sign so they had the MOH & bestman just sign on the side which looks ridiculous. So that was disappointing for me. The decorations did look great and they followed my instructions perfectly for the centerpieces. The reception was pretty successful-The food was good and on time. But I had given my seating chart to the wedding coordinator and he didn't bring it to the reception. My friend who was sitting at the guestbook table asked him for it but he told her she was supposed to have it so my guests had to stand around until I got there and told the wedding coordinator that he had it then he went and got it. At the end of the night, we did have to take our centerpieces down ourselves which they didn't tell us until it was time to do it.
The last part that was disappointing for me is we used Caribephoto (one of the approved vendors for the resort) and were really disappointed in his pictures (his name was Santos)....so bring your own photographer or be really careful about that....
I couldn't believe how many photo's I had to touch up myself....removing blemishes, straightening out, cropping etc. Don't expect any sort of photoshopping or effects.
He didn't get a picture of the bride & groom with the bride's family or of both families together with us...I had given him photos that I liked and he didnt do any of them except one tI reminded him about for but then it looked dumb because he didn't help us pose well. The most disappointing part was that in some of the pictures, the people looked really great but because Santos was not paying attention to the background, the photo didn't turn out well (ie, swing rope looks like it's sticking out of my head, curtain used as backdrop not closed all the way etc.) Anyway, over all the wedding was ok but wasn't the perfect day you hope for....and I didn't really hope for perfection as you know there will be gliches...they just messed up the 2 things that really mattered to me- the signing of the documents and the photos....
Anyway, if you do get married there, I just thought you should know to watch out for these things.....especially your photos!!
Good Luck & if you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask.


Hope that helps!


Let us know how your weekend was!!!!!!!

Also, I'd say over half of the ceremonies they perform are symbolic, so its really not "pretending" for them.  A ceremony is a ceremony.  Maybe this girl made a bunch of changes to Azul's typical program which could have made the minister uneasy.  Especially with the language barrier. 


Regardless, I really wouldnt worry about one girls complaint.  I trust all of the girls opinions/reviews on this forum far before anywhere else.  :)


Back to a positive note... My Bachelorette Weekend starts in 1 hour!  Yay!!!

The day beds are fun for some shots. The carriage is in front of the Mexican restuarant. The large staircase up to the main lobby is stunning both day and night. The front lobby has some neat elements, and you can shoot from the 2nd floor down or up (spa is upstairs).

Really depends on what you want. We did most pictures on the beach, the swimup bar, and LeChique.

Hello!  I have been lurking around reading posts here and there to keep up with everyone, but haven't had much to post, I am pretty ready!!  I can't believe we are in April already!  I am so excited and nerves kicking in now, about making sure I have not forgotten anything!!  My FI still has to hem his suit pants and I pick up my dress this weekend, so crossing my fingers it will fit perfectly!!  My travel agent (he is Karisma certified) sent us our room upgrade to the Premium swim up so I'm excited about that as well!  We will be at the resort April 20- May 4 so I know I will be there at the same time as a few of you girls, hopefully our paths will cross!  Just a little nervous about how it will go with photographer, we are going with Caribe, but that's who we booked so I think I will recruit my Aunt to follow us around and make sure photographer is taking the right pics etc.  After reading that last review I will have to be very alert and hope we get all the right pictures.  Thanks for the advice. 

Ok, just checking in and saying hi.  This forum has really helped me along the way for wedding planning and having a place to vent and get ideas, I just want to say thank you to all the brides on here who have given me advice and reassurance in this fun and often stressful time.  thewave.gif

      I wrote a ridiculously long review (11 pages). It includes my itinerary, my 6 page travel letter for worry warts, guest bags, every detail of the hotel, cost, advice, etc. I’m not going to overload the FB page with it so here is a link to the review if you want to read it. In short, I would give this hotel and experience 5 stars and recommend you use an outside vendor for photography and DJ just for cost effective reasons. Theirs is amazing and will not disappoint. My favorite part of my stay was the wedding of course and the spa. Favorite people at the resort were Paola (wedding planner), Vividiana (check in), Veronica and Marisol (spa). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1RaFb19Pbn8tDvNY3_GSoZ8DX0plYaT_F

    • Hi there, I think the idea of abroad trip is great for the newly married couple. But along with the trip you can also gift them some beautiful pairs of wholesale designer sunglasses, that will be helpful to them on the trip. By wearing wholesale sunglasses they look stylish and fashionable.
    • What is BMI? Body Mass Index ( BMI index ) is a person’s weight in kilograms divided by the square of height in meters. For children and teens, BMI is age- and sex-specific and is often referred to as BMI-for-age. In children, a high amount of body fat can lead to weight-related diseases and other health issues and being underweight can also put one at risk for health issues. A high BMI can be an indicator of high body fatness. BMI does not measure body fat directly, but research has shown that BMI is correlated with more direct measures of body fat, such as skinfold thickness measurements, bioelectrical impedance, densitometry (underwater weighing), dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and other methods1,2,3. BMI can be considered an alternative to direct measures of body fat. In general, BMI is an inexpensive and easy-to-perform method of screening for weight categories that may lead to health problems. How is BMI calculated for children and teens? Calculating BMI using the BMI Percentile Calculator involves the following steps: Measure height and weight. Refer to Measuring Children’s Height and Weight Accurately At Home for guidance. Use the Child and Teen BMI Calculator to calculate BMI. The BMI number is calculated using standard formulas. What is a BMI percentile and how is it interpreted? After BMI is calculated for children and teens, it is expressed as a percentile which can be obtained from either a graph or a percentile calculator (see links below). These percentiles express a child’s BMI relative to children in the U.S. who participated in national surveys that were conducted from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Because weight and height change during growth and development, as does their relation to body fatness, a child’s BMI must be interpreted relative to other children of the same sex and age. The BMI-for-age percentile growth charts are the most commonly used indicator to measure the size and growth patterns of children and teens in the United States. BMI-for-age weight status categories and the corresponding percentiles were based on expert committee recommendations and are shown in the following table.   Weight Status Category Percentile Range Underweight Less than the 5th percentile Normal or Healthy Weight 5th percentile to less than the 85th percentile Overweight 85th to less than the 95th percentile Obese Equal to or greater than the 95th percentile   How is BMI used with children and teens? For children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool and is used to screen for potential weight and health-related issues. For example, a child may have a high BMI for their age and sex, but to determine if excess fat is a problem, a health care provider would need to perform further assessments. These assessments might include skinfold thickness measurements, evaluations of diet, physical activity, family history, and other appropriate health screenings. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children beginning at 2 years old. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. BMI online Is BMI interpreted the same way for children and teens as it is for adults? BMI is interpreted differently for children and teens even though it is calculated as weight ÷ height2. Because there are changes in weight and height with age, as well as their relation to body fatness, BMI levels among children and teens need to be expressed relative to other children of the same sex and age. These percentiles are calculated from the CDC growth charts, which were based on national survey data collected from 1963-65 to 1988-944. Obesity is defined as a BMI at or above the 95th percentile for children and teens of the same age and sex. For example, a 10-year-old boy of average height (56 inches) who weighs 102 pounds would have a BMI of 22.9 kg/m2. This would place the boy in the 95th percentile for BMI, and he would be considered to have obesity. This means that the child’s BMI is greater than the BMI of 95% of 10-year-old boys in the reference population. For adults, BMI is interpreted as weight status categories that are not dependent on sex or age. Read more: How to interpret BMI for adult BMI Why can’t healthy weight ranges be provided for children and teens? Normal or healthy weight weight status is based on BMI between the 5th and 85th percentile on the CDC growth chart. It is difficult to provide healthy weight ranges for children and teens because the interpretation of BMI depends on weight, height, age, and sex. What are the BMI trends for children and teens in the United States? The prevalence of children and teens who measure in the 95th percentile or greater on the CDC growth charts has greatly increased over the past 40 years. Recently, however, this trend has leveled off and has even declined in certain age groups. To learn more about child and teen obesity trends, visit Childhood Obesity Facts. How can I tell if my child is overweight or obese? CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recommend the use of BMI to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens age 2 through 19 years. For children under the age of 2 years old, consult the WHO standards. Although BMI is used to screen for overweight and obesity in children and teens, BMI is not a diagnostic tool. To determine whether the child has excess fat, further assessment by a trained health professional would be needed. For information about the consequences of childhood obesity, its contributing factors and more, see Tips for Parents – Ideas and Tips to Help Prevent Childhood Obesity. Can I determine if my child or teen is obese by using an adult BMI calculator? In general, it’s not possible to do this. The adult calculator provides only the BMI value (weight/height2) and not the BMI percentile that is needed to interpret BMI among children and teens. It is not appropriate to use the BMI categories for adults to interpret the BMI of children and teens. However, if a child or teen has a BMI of ≥ 30 kg/m2, the child is almost certainly obese. A BMI of 30 kg/m2 is approximately the 95th percentile among 17-year-old girls and 18-year-old boys. My two children have the same BMI values, but one is considered obese and the other is not. Why is that? The interpretation of BMI varies by age and sex. So if the children are not the same age and the same sex, the interpretation of BMI has different meanings. For children of different age and sex, the same BMI could represent different BMI percentiles and possibly different weight status categories. See the following graphic for an example for a 10-year-old boy and a 15-year-old boy who both have a BMI-for-age of 23. (Note that two children of different ages are plotted on the same growth chart to illustrate a point. Normally the measurement for only one child is plotted on a growth chart.)  
    • Whether your relatives were especially generous with their checks or you intentionally set up a cash registry, let’s be perfectly clear: There’s no right or wrong way to spend your wedding gift money.  So sit down and start talking to ensure you’re both on the same page, then check out some of our favorite ideas for spending (and saving) those dollars wisely. Be Sensible About the Long Run
      Sometimes it pays to be a responsible adult, even if it seems boring on the surface. Before that cash starts burning a hole in your pocket, it’s a good idea to “pay yourselves first.” That means paying down debt (especially if you racked up any for the wedding itself), starting a rainy day savings fund, or even contributing to your retirement accounts. It might feel like a lifetime away, but one day you’ll both be glad you made such a sound investment. Save Up for Something Big
      A wedding windfall offers the perfect opportunity to get the two of you closer to a future goal you’ve been dreaming of. It can be as immediate as investing in much-needed new furniture (you can finally dump that lumpy old mattress!), or as far down the road as saving up for a home. Or maybe you want to buy a new car—especially if that sporty two-seater you’re currently driving doesn’t exactly match up with your plans to have kids. Whatever the goal, working toward something together will only serve to strengthen your relationship. Bright idea: Want to put your wedding wedding toward a down payment on a house? Consider opening a certificate of deposit (CD), especially if you’re not planning to buy for a few years. CDs tend to offer higher interest rates than savings accounts—and since you can’t touch the money for a set period of time, it’s useful if you’re usually tempted to tap into your savings for more immediate needs. Have a Little Fun
      Once you’ve got the future squared away, it’s okay to treat yourselves—so go ahead and enjoy a mini splurge that’ll benefit both of you. Reserve a small amount to put toward a shared interest, like a high-tech wine fridge or top-of-the-line home theater system. Or if the two of you have been texting each other pictures of golden doodle puppies for weeks, and you’re serious about raising a dog or cat, visit your local shelter or check out reputable breeders to find a new four-legged friend. Allocating a bit of the funds for something exciting maintains a healthy balance in your spending habits, making long-term financial wellness more achievable. (You know what they say about all work and no play.) Bright idea: Take a class together. Having a common interest helps you grow as a couple, so pick something you both want to learn, like a foreign language, and enjoy that extra quality time.
