The fives is fairly close to Playa del carmen but i would say it would be more hiking than walking distance. I too was initially under the impression that it was walkable to town but after my site visit I would say you would be better off taking a taxi and I certainly would not walk it at night.

Perhaps along the beach the walk would be shorter?

From the spec room i saw - it is an amazing property! very chic but yet comfortable!

Oh really...that was one of our main reasons for booking the hotel! Oh well never mind.

 

All the pictures of the rooms show the 1 bedroom suites however we have just booked a delux room. What are these rooms like? Also what do all the restaurants look like?

 

Also I am flying over from scotland, will i just book my flowers, evening reception etc when I get there or do I need to do it all before I go?

 

I was kind of hoping I would just to do it once I arrived there....thats one of the reasons why I am doing it abroad so someone else can arrange all of these details for me and I just pick what I want when I get there!!! :)

 

Thanks

Otherwise we are having a big party back in scotland for everyone who couldnt make it. we couldnt afford to pay for lots of people to come to mexico....if we could we would!! It is roughly working about £1500-£1700 per person for 2 weeks all inclusive and about £1200 for one week all inclusive...thats flying from Scotland. £1500 is equalivent to about $2300. I dont have a clue how much you guys would be in the states.

I havent picked any flowers etc yet I am just guesing that I pick all that when I am over there. I would like to have a bbq and a dancefloor on the beach for the evening reception. I emailed fabio asking if he needs details of this prior to our arrival or if we can just arrange it all when we get there but he hasnt replied yet sad.gif

So are you steering more towards the fives or the sensatori?

I have asked Fabio to provide me with ceremony and reception options but he says they wont be available until mid dec-january
Yes, I am leaning toward Fives. I like that it's close to Playa del Carmen. I do wonder about their indoor restaurants in the event that it rains and a reception has to be moved indoors. Also, what would be the indoor option for the wedding ceremony? I think we may go to another resort a couple days after the wedding for our honeymoon. Possibly Secrets? By transfers, I meant the drive from the Cancun airport to the hotel. Thanks for your reply.

Oh sorry I misunderstood what you meant. Our holiday package includes transfers from the airport to the hotel so dont need to pay any extra. We are also going to another hotel after the wedding. We are 2 weeks in the fives and 1 week in the royal cancun...secrets looks lovely :)

You should be able to pick most things when you get there- just be pretty flexible as things like the flowers may be limited to what their florist has available! If you have something specific in mind for the flowers i would do it prior- probably at least 30-45 days. Also if you want a color other than white for chair covers or bows- I'd recommend doing it prior- if you are happy with white you should be fine doing it when you are there! The wedding and reception location can easily be picked once there !

The deluxe rooms are nice, they look like your standard hotel rooms!

Hey ladies! I may be joining this forum, as my wedding date at both Azul Beach and Sensatori is not available! I was just wondering if any of you have done site visits or have any actual pictures of the resort? Know when its supposed to open? I have contacted my WC to ask all of this but thought if you guys knew now that would be great. I know on Karisma's website they digital pictures, but I am hoping to find "actual" photos of it? If anyone has anymore information on this resort that would be great...

Hey Peace oh its exciting you have booked up :) :) I cant wait till the hotel actually opens so we can start reading the reviews!!!

 

Tracy S - The hotel is meant to open on 1st Dec however I was then told that it would open for the public on 21st Dec. I have asked Fabio for some photographs of possible ceremony and reception sites but he said he would not be able to provide these until mid Dec - early Jan. I have previously asked on here before if anyone has done a site visit but no one responded sad.gif

 

There is a small review in this topic http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t31547

Hi Tracy, I do not have any actual pics but I am sure that we will have access to them when the resort opens in late December/early January. I have not done a site visit. I will make sure to post info as it becomes available to me.

    • My best friend is getting married with his long-term girlfriend next month. As a best friend, I want to give them the best present they would ever receive on their special day. I am planning to buy them plane tickets and book them for a one week trip abroad. However, I am torn between Ukraine ski trip and a tour to Lima, Peru. My best friend loves skiing and his future wife is a chef, so I presume she would want to experience a Peruvian taste. Now, I am confused. Which is which? I would appreciate it if you guys will leave a comment to help me out with this. Suggesting a way better idea which will accommodate the two activities for the soon-to-be wedded couple is a big help too. Thanks!    
    • Hello all!! I'm getting married next week. Every arrangement has been done by my sister for my special day. When I joined in an MNC I was troubled with severe headaches and as per my colleague's instruction, I took an appointment in a nearby eye clinic. And after an eye examination in Toronto, the eye specialist diagnosed hypermetropia in me. And the doctor prescribed eyeglasses for me. The doctor suggested me to wear eyeglasses during the working time. But I used to wear it sometimes not every day. Then I was troubled with severe eye strain and headache and mom was scolding me to wear eyeglasses every day. I thought of saying goodbye to eyeglasses forever. I'm planning for a Lasik eye surgery soon before my marriage. I don't know whether I'm eligible for Lasik eye surgery. I'm tensed about its recovery time and its complications. Can someone help me by sharing your views?  
    • In the 2017 bridal fashion week, many styles of wedding dresses were gradually popular. From serious bling to regal capes and fun and flirty short numbers, ByCouturier've got all the hottest wedding dress trends you need to know. Allover Sparkle
      Over-the-top sequins, tonal beading and metallic embellishments turned the Bridal Fashion Week runways into a glittery affair. Perfect for evening nuptials under the stars, this trend is daring but sophisticated. Pro tip: If you're rocking a gown with lots of sparkle, keep your accessories minimal and let your glitzy frock do all the talking.  Bold Ball Gowns
      If you're looking to make a dramatic entrance, a classic ball gown is for you—and we saw plenty of them. Take a cue from long, lace sleeves, or get glam with an embellished strapless bodice. No matter the details, this voluminous style is sure to turn heads.  Captivating Capes
      Not into veils? A full-length bridal cape or shorter capelet is the perfect alternative: It still adds movement to your gown, but feels fashion forward. Plus, this trend is an easy way to pull off a mid-wedding outfit change. Wear a cape or capelet for a more formal look during your ceremony, then whisk it away to hit the dance floor at your reception. Short, Sassy Dresses
      Whether you show off your legs (and a killer pair of heels) in an embellished mini or opt for a more conservative midi-length number, a wedding dress with a flirty hemline is a chic way to mix it up. Not willing to give up your dream ball gown? Change into a shorter frock to spice up your reception or after-party.  Plunging Necklines
      The deep V-neckline is a must-try for two reasons: It flatters your upper body (even if you're busty!) and elongates your frame. A plunging V with scalloped lace is ultra-feminine, while a sleek V plays up the inherently sexy vibe of a curve-skimming silhouette. Just make sure you have fashion tape handy the day of to avoid any wardrobe malfunctions. 
      Skinny Straps
      We love this trend for two reasons: A gown with barely there straps has all of the sex appeal of a strapless neckline, plus added support. We call that a bridal fashion win. 
    • Hello all, 
      I am here to get some suggestions on the best places to go on a honeymoon. I am getting married by the end of next month. 
      I was thinking of Bali or Maldives. But just wanted to know other beautiful and romantic places. The wedding banquet hall is a gift from our parents. The hall they have booked for us is one of the best banquet halls in Vaughan I’ve ever seen... Other arrangements like the videographer, photographer, wedding dress, reception dress are all finalized. The next week we have the pre-wedding shoot. Also, I'll start sending the invitations the same week. So, it is going to be hectic and I don't have time to rest or look for some nice places. So, if anyone here could suggest some places would be a great help. 
      Let me know your suggestions. 
      Thanks in advance!
