    I am also considering Fives, if anyone has actual photos after it opens I would love to see them. Good luck to everyone with an upcoming wedding!

      I am interested in fives too, but given all the problems with Sensatori I am a bit weary.

        Rock on! My TA came back from vacation this week and must have done a good job shaking the Fabio tree, because we got a call today. We were able to take care of most of our details (flowers, questions about gown pressing (doesn't exist at Fives), chairs, dinner, rehersal (or setup I should say), spa service, etc) and we also found received an updated on Fives.

        According to Fabio, it will open up the day we arrive (Jan 29th) and be fully operational (hopefully without workers running around and powertools making noise). Fabio also promised to send us a guaranteed backup for our full party together (in writting) at either Beaches or Sensitori. While I'm not 100% confident in Fives being ready in time, it's nice to at least be told it will be (and have a solid backup just in case).

        I guess I will be a guinea pig for Fives. I'll be sure to take lots of pictures.

          Great photos thank you for sharing. I think this is going to be one of the best new hotels on the Riviera.

              Hey brides & grooms!

              I'm looking at the Azul Fives for our wedding in the fall. Looks like it's going through typical opening/growing pains! Has anyone been in contact with Jo'Veen? She is the coordinator/point of contact I've been emailing.

              Also - any examples of discounts or group rates at the Azul Fives? I haven't contacted a travel agent (have always done this solo, so have never used one), but am thinking this is the best way to work with the Azul Fives.

              Any input is appreciated!

                I heard from Jo'Zeen yesterday. I got a quote from a travel agent for the Azul Hotel & Beach, which seems like it might be more expensive than the Fives. They said $1460 pp a week based on double occupancy with airport transfers. Too much for me!! When I get the fives quote I can reply to you, but if you PM me I will be more likely to remember.

                  Hello,
                  I'm a Sensatori Bride, but I came across 2 things that might be of interest to you.
                  First the good, pics! These were supposedly taken by a realtor the 1st week of January.

                  Next is the not so good. The resort is supposedly not opening until Feb 12 at this point.
                  Playa del Carmen forum: Azul Fives opening date: Mid Feb! - TripAdvisor
                  Now just going through this with Sensatori, the wedding coordinators and our TA's didn't have a clue about delays until the day before or day of!
                  Another little tidbit of advice is to prepare yourself for a rollercoaster of emotion the next couple months. I'm sure they will have similar opening problems as Azul Sensatori has. Take the Tripadvisor reviews with a grain of salt, and keep an eye on the Playa Del Carmen forum on Tripadvisor for lots of valuable information.
                  Best wishes to you!

                    Thank you so much for posting those photos - at least it's still looking like it will be a beautiful resort! I sure hope for everyone's sake the Azul Fives can learn from the kinks it sounds like the Sensatori has gone through. Fingers crossed brides!
