    Hey Girls

    Here's the long awaited review of Azul Sensatori. First, let me say that it is an amazing hotel perfect for weddings. It is not quite done, and they said it should be opening November 1st. We stayed at the sister hotel, Azul Beach, which is less than a quarter of a mile down the beach from Sensatori)

    We met Carolina (onsite WC from Azul) and Gilberto (WC from Lomas Travel) at our hotel, Azul Beach, and they drove us to Azul Sensatori. They were very excited about all the progress that is taking place and said that each time they come it drastically changes. It was crazy b/c my FI and I were walking around with the WC's and met the general manager of the hotel and picking out locations for the ceremony and reception locations for the hotel

    Here is a pic of the lobby. To the right is the check in desk (with a fish aquarium behind it and to the right is the gift shop, wedding office and a fossil museum)

    If you walk throug the lobby, you will be in the roof garden lounge which is the central bar of the hotel. There is going to be live entertainment here.

    To the left of the lounge is the mojito bar. Click the image to open in full size.

    The big circle in the middle is one of the options for a reception. Great location with lots of room.

    There are 4 buildings that run perpendicular to the beach and these are where the rooms are. On one of the buildings is the Sky deck. It is far away from any kitchen, so I can see why there is not a cocktail or ceremony allowed, b/c it would be hard to get food here. They do bring in a cocktail though if you have your wedding here.

    As you can see from the pics, there is still some work to do. Right now, there isn't any glass. They said the glass is going to be around eye level (somewhere around there) and cover up the air conditioners too.

          I have other pics of the restaurants, but they are not finished, so not worth it to post them. Hope this gives you a good idea of Sensatori, let me know if you have any questions

            Great pics of the property. It looks like it is going to be a great resort. I cant believe they'll have it all together by the 1st of November

                  Thanks for the pics! Do you really think they will have the work finished by Nov 1st? Did you feel like they were feeding you a line of crap about the timing? I know your wedding it way out but ours is so near...I am freaking out! To me, it looks like there is a ton of work to do yet....i mean no water in the pools!!!

                    OMG, thank you so much! I am loving to see all of the ceremony and reception options. It gives me so much of a better idea. Did you like Carolina and Gilberto? We met with them back in May and I was so reassured that no matter what stress we encountered along the way would be gone come wedding day. Did they mention if they were going to be the on-site coordinators at Sensatori?

                    I am irritated with Karisma though because they have known all along that they wouldn't be ready Oct. 1st. I don't see the benefit of selling rooms for October if they know they are going to redistribute the customers. My TA got us a casita at EDR, so it won't be so bad. But we were going SO WE COULD STAY AT THE RESORT. I feel bad for the November brides. We are going on our site visit what is now opening weekend and there is a wedding Nov 1.
                    Ok, I'm going to look at the pics all over again! Thanks so much!

                    So does this mean you have decided on Azul Sensatori?

                      Thank you so much for the pics! The hotel looks great but far from being finished!!! I am supposed to be staying there for a sight visit in November and now I am doubting it will be ready by then.

                      Did you get to see the beach ceremony location? Was there a similar wooden gazebo like the one Azul Beach has?

                      Thanks again for writing this and posting pics.
