    thanks so much for the info.  i am writing down things everyday that i had not even though of before getting engaged.  The info you guys have passed on already just this morning is great, so thank you.  I am a complete Foodie, so I am very drawn to the aspect that the resort is Gourmet.  That is one of my biggest complaints with other  all-inclusive resorts.  Thanks for the information about the extra fees.  That's something i would have not known either.  Good luck on your up-coming wedding. so exciting!

     Darn! I paid too much! I guess mine's was more expensive b/c of the whistles. I am taking them off for the adults but giving them to the kids. Humm..i wonder whether or not that is a good idea? lol. thanks for sharing! I hope Dawn sees this and will check it out!

    I didn't care about color (so bought the assorted pack) and know my guests probably won't use them again after the trip so I didn't want to spend a ton.  I believe these shipped from China but I had them within a week.

     Hi! It is never too early to start planning... the earlier you start i think the better esp if you know the date you want. My Fi and I met with a TA who came highly recommended through friends. We informed our TA of the things that were most important to us, which was keeping the cost down but still having a high quality resort & kid friendly. We narrowed it down to 3 resorts, one of them being AS. From there, we did a site visit of AS to be sure we loved it and we did. For what you are paying, you are getting your money's worth, i think. The quality of food is much better than the typical all-inclusive and the Le Chique restaurant at AS is amazing. You will def appreciate Le Chique esp if you are a foodie. The downfall to this restaurant is that you must make reservations, which is difficult since it books fast and they are only open 6 days a week. The other part we loved about AS is how it is split between Adults Only section and kids Section. We have some guests who want nothing to do with kids so they can stay in the adults-only pool. And our guests who do have kids will be very entertained at how much they do cater to kids. If you plan on not having kids at your wedding, then I highly recommend the adults-only El Dorado Royale...this resort is really stunning too!  As the other brides have informed you, AS is very pricey with the extra stuff and hiring outside vendors so you need to consider this if you are on a tight budget. Based on reviews from other brides, I do not recall reading any bride regretting having their wedding at AS. There were hiccups but there will be hiccups no matter where your wedding is. If feasible, you should do a site visit so you can see for yourself. :)

     

    P.S. the no bracelet thing at AS is also huge!! i hate how other all-inclusives make you wear that silly thing!

What made you choose Sensatori as your final decision?  is everyone happy with this decision so far or were there other places in the area that you wish you would have looked at a bit more.  I would appreciate any advice you can offer to someone who just got engaged 2 weeks ago but is ready to start making some wedding planning decisions. 

     

    oh one more question,  how far in advance did you book your wedding with sensatori?  is a february/march wedding do-able if i start planning now? thanks so much  you guys.

        Hi Chelsey!!!

         Welcome to the forum and CONGRATS on your engagement!!

        HI ladies,

        This is my first post, so I hope i'm doing it correctly and it will show up where i think its suppose to show up. 

         

        I just got engaged  (3 weeks ago) so i'm starting to jump into the wedding planning.  Sensatori keeps popping back up as i'm reviewing and searching for destination wedding spots. 

         

        Can you guys tell me what made you want to choose Sensatori?  are you happy with the decision ?  are there other resorts in the area that you wish you had looked into a bit more? 

         

        If i go ahead and decide on Sensatori, how far out do I have to book the wedding?  is a late February/ early March wedding do-able from right now do you think? 

         

        Any advice you can offer will be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much.

        Chelsey

          The other girls have really given a lot of the plus sides to AS.

          The only things I would add: The rooms are modern and nicely furnished. The staff is outstanding! They truly are a wonderful crew. If there are kids coming to the wedding, the kids club is one of the best I have ever seen. The kids at our wedding were constantly bugging their parents to go to the kids club. (which the parents loved-since they then truly had their own vacation) The kids club also has a night program (7-9:30pm) so the parents were able to enjoy a quiet dinner to themselves or join other friends. The resort is also really easy to get to. From Cancun airport it's only a 20 minute drive (while some resorts further south can be upwards of 1 1/2h drive.) It is also located in the middle between Cancun and Playa del Carmen. This is nice since it's easy for your guests to get to either location if they choose.

           

          And yes, if you're a foodie- this is by far the best all-inclusive resort I have ever been to. (we travel multiple times a year, and have been so impressed with AS that we have been back now 4 times) Le Chique is simply amazing, it's the type of high end place you would expect to find in New York or Chicago....not Mexico!

          Good luck with your choice!

            Hi Chelsea! Congrats on your engagement! We chose Sensatori because we wanted theMayan Riviera and it was one of the nicest places there. We're very pleased with the decision. It looks amazing and we keep getting more and more excited. We did have some issues with their booking person thought because we didn't have the minimum amount of people for the group rate. That caused some problems so we decided to find another travel agent.
