In my opinion you are going to get that at any resort you go to in Mexico. I think if you are firm with them, you will be fine in not having them bother you. On the other hand I've talked to people who have gone to the timeshare meetings and ended up buying one and it actually sounds like a pretty good idea/deal which makes me wonder why we are always so hell bent on avoiding them! Lol. I haven't been to Sandos, however, so I really can't speak for that resort specifically.

Hope that helps!

Getting married at Sandos April 15th 2010!!!

 

Tonia 579 we deciede on Sandos after researching a ton of resorts in the area. The wedding package prices are good, from what I can tell they don't charge you for extra people like a lot of the other resorts do. It's close to Playa del Carmen which is nice for the guests, the beach looks beautiful! I think the main rason really was how nice the beach looks in this area.

If you have facebook they have a facebook profile which has tons of pics and gives really good info on the resort. If you have any ?'s let me know, I have some extra info that the wedding planner has sent me.

Good luck deciding!!

The bonfire thing was super expensive, Paola came back with a quote of 500 or something and then a fellow from the band said he would come down with his drums and play for us at a bonfire for 600. Not really worth it, some other resorts do beach bonfires for only 80 dollars an hour or something. She sent us pictures of the two buffets but no menu examples. If anyone wants to see the pictures of the two buffets let me know!

    • we are a Karisma wedding specialist...Do you have any questions you need answered?   you can email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com
    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
