    Are you sure you mean "per night"?

    My TA was able to secure a group rate of $498 pp for jr jacuzzi ste for 3 nights (lowest rm category) and $528 pp for luxury jacuzzi ste (family section) for 3 nights (includes taxes and airport transfers). Yes it comes out to $166 pp/per night for a basic room. Rates do vary - depends on what time of year you are staying.

    If anyone else has lower, please share!!!

      if you look at it that way, my TA quoted $525 pp for 3 days - not a huge difference. that's for the weekend of may 15th.

      i keep going back and forth on whether i think this is high or not

      at times i think it's a great deal and other times i know i can make it cheaper for my guests staying somewhere else.

      for 4 days, the whole thing (airfare included) is $1160 pp so around $2300 per couple. what do you think is the "normal" amount for guests to spend on a destination wedding?

        I don't think the 4 day rate of $1160 pp is bad at all if the airfare is from New York.....Most of my guests are staying 3 nights/4 days and the price we have including airfare from Dallas is $966 pp. That's only $200 more for your guests and the travel is so much further. The overall prices seem higher than this time last year, but due to the high cost of fuel everyone has increased fares. We also have Sun Country airlines, so that makes a big difference since they are typically less expensive that AA or Delta. I hope that helps!
        We are using destinationweddings.com and they have promised we will get the lowest price out there. So far we have. Also, if you decide to accept their insurance it has a "lowest price guarantee", so even if our guests book now and the airfares drop between now and May they get the lower rate. I was impressed with that.

          I don't think that $1160 per person is bad either. Just think if you had people coming from out of town into NY. They would pay for flight, transportation to and from hotel, and hotel too. (which can easily add up in NY) And then the prices for food, drinks and getting around NY would really add up too. So in then end, you are probably saving your guests money.

            I saw that you have sent out your save the dates. That's great because that is a lot of work in itself and such an important thing to get done. I noticed you already had people booked and know of some that are not attending. Did you put a response card on your save the dates?
            Mexican Bride... I rushed like crazy to get those save the dates out.... my wedding is in the middle of spring break so airfare is creeping up quickly. I did not send out reply cards I have spoken to people that notified me to say they wouldnt be able to make it... I have 3 friends getting married within a month from my date so they were an obvious no!

            I did my save the date magnets through pioneercolor.com I thought they had the most unique magnets and would reccommend them to anyone... it only took 1 week to arrive!!!
            Save the Dates are out... Sent/92 Booked/36 No/9

                Hi All.....

                Wanted to share the news that we upgraded to the honeymoon sweet for the week makeing our wedding package free (you also have to have 15+ rooms booked from other guests) The price difference was about the same as the $2000 we would have spent on the silver wedding package.

                I'm super pumped for that HUGE patio I have been seeing pictures of.

                Happy weekend!!!!

                  Totally out of place but just thought I'd let you know I am very jealous of everyone who is getting married at the Azul Sensatori.

                  I wanted to do Mexico and Azul was my first choice but a special someone (NOT ME) was too chicken shit for the blood tests.

                    why don't you have a civil ceremony in the states before you leave (just secretly go to city hall) and then have a religious/symbolic ceremony in mexico? no one will ever know! and therefore you won't have to get bloodtests!

                      Hello,

                      I am wondering if people looked at both Azul Beach and Azul Sensatori - and why they choose one over the other? Any suggestions? Also, what is the approximate cost of the wedding? Any pics to share of recent weddings? The place looks beautiful ... but still hard to tell from the website! Thanks for the suggestions! Have a good weekend.

                      Jen
