Official Azul Fives Bride
Posted 15 January 2009 - 05:41 PM
Has anyone been out on the town in Playa, or experienced the nightlife? We'd like to cruise in from Azul Fives with around 25 people for drinking/ dancing on a night before the wedding. I heard Casa del Aqua is good for cocktails - but maybe not so much a nightspot? Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

There is still some construction, but the major stuff is done, it sounds like the construction is cosmetic to the rooms.
The info wasn't in front of him, but Omar said he believes there will be a wedding on Friday the 28th to kick things off.
It was a big scary ride, but is sounds like Fives will be ready to go in less than a week.

The scary ride got too scary for us, and we moved everyone and everything elsewhere. The big thing for us was pictures - and we couldn't understand why Karisma would not send any after months of requests.
Have an amazing time down there and a beautiful wedding day. It's much deserved after such a roller coaster ride.

Just curious where did you move your wedding? Still with a Karisma?
My wedding was to be at Azul Fives in one week (Sat Jan 31 2009), booked it last May, it too got far to scary. They have a very disorganized office in miami, must be overworked employees. I have had so many different sales managers and wedding planners. They don't have the information on my guests and want me to contact them for payment, and they can't give my guests individual confirmations that they are at a new resort.
We moved to Eldorado Royal. They still want to charge the one couple, who have to stay at Azul Beach resort because they have a child, close to $200 for them to come to the wedding even though they are paying for an all-inclusive day at another karisma resort and we are paying $120 for their dinners at our private event. I've given up arguing. Too much stress. But everything is suppose to be beautiful at that resort. Wish us luck. Let me know where you moved.

After the way Azul Fives treated us, we lost complete faith in Karisma. Not to mention that that we have two families coming with children, so that limited our options if/when we had to move last minute. So we are heading to Grand Velas.
It was actually our TA who suggested we move. And she just won an award with Karisma and has great relationships with them. She said when she stopped getting returned calls from them, that is when she decided to pull the plug. She went out and found Grand Velas, on her own, and negotiated a heck of a deal for us and our guests.
Good Luck with your wedding. El Dorado looks amazing as well.
