    Hi All! Just got back from Azul Sens. today. You guys are going to love the place so no worries about that! I had my site visit with Carolina and Gilberto - both of them are great and seem so accommodating and easy to work with.

    Most of the info 'Mexicanbridewithquestions' posted following her site review - so I don't want to reiterate any of that. Few things I did find out that I wanted to share:

    Legal paperwork - you don't have to have anything translated prior to arriving for your wedding. You only need to have your birth certificate, passport and tourist card (you will have that upon arriving in Mexico). Gilberto just needs to see the exact given name and names of your parents on the BC.

    Ceremony locations: Unless you're opting for the Sky Deck - you really have only 1 option if you are having more than 20 guests. That is on the beach. Carolina & Gilberto did say they may be able to do a ceremony for 30-40 on the “Yoga Platform” that is on the beach. They’ve not tried setting that up yet, so they aren’t exactly sure how many it can accommodate. But a good question to ask if you like that as an option.


    Receptions: They are really firm on the 11PM end time – so budging. So think about that in relation to your ceremony time. We booked our ceremony at 6PM, so unless we can bump that up we won’t be able to have a cocktail party before our reception. Each cocktail party is 2 hours, they can’t customize for 1 hour (unless you want to pay for the 2 hours and only do for an hour).

    We were hoping to have a cocktail party type reception – no ‘sit-down’ dinner, which you totally can do – only glitch is, included in the price/person are tall cocktail table set-ups only. So, no chairs. If you want to have tables and chairs, you have to pay extra for that. Not a big deal, but something to think for your budget.

    Lomas – Basically, we have to secure everything thru the US based Lomas folks (Nancy, Fabio, Tiffany) – Carolina & Gilberto said to make sure to have everything you want included in the ‘Info Sheet” the US Lomas group is compiling for us. If its not on this list, then the team in Mexico won’t know to order prior. As far as very specific details (i.e. placement of flowers, tables, etc.) you can do all of that when you arrive. But if something needs to be ordered beforehand, they need to have that info prior. So I’d be sure to get a copy of this “Info Sheet” from your contact to make sure they’re capturing everything you’re requesting and pay for.

    Bridal Suite - Located in the Spa. You need to reserve thru Lomas, and you're able to secure only if you've booked 2 hours worth of spa appts. Can fit 3 people only.

    Hair/Nails/Makeup - Hair and makeup you can schedule a trial when you arrive. Although, I might skip the nails after hearing Jen's experience. Maybe a nice polish change will do :)

    Overall – I think the place is amazing and everyone’s wedding is going to be fabulous! It’s hard to plan from afar, but these guys know what they are doing. Let me know if you have any questions, I’m happy to answer anything! I have pics, just need to figure out how to post so you don't have to download.

    BTW – did I read on the past few posts that Nancy is no longer there? Does anyone know who is replacing her? I haven’t rec’d anything from Lomas.

      Thanks for the review!

      So did you get numbers of how many guests the other ceremony sites will accomodate?

      And when do you get the sheet you're talking about for ordering all the details from the WC's?

        Beach can accomodate up to 200, Gazebo (forget the real name) is 20 and Sky Package is 80.

        Not sure when you get the sheet - I'm going to ask Lomas tomorrow. Keep you posted

            Great review! Did you get to stay there? I will be checking TA for your review as well. Did you see any weddings while you were there?
            Doesn't it just ease your mind now that you have seen it?

              Totally eases the mind to see it! Yes, we got to stay there. A few sections were open and all of the restaurants, although there a def. a few kinks to work out. We totally loved it though.

              Did see 2 weddings - both ceremonies were on the beach, very pretty! And the team was really quick to do the switch up of the chairs and colors. 1 group had their reception in the Plaza, the other at Zocalo (inside).

              The Plaza

              The Beach Platform - its kind of a strange spot for ceremony. Its in between 2 beach beds, so you'd really want the beach to be clear...

              Zocalo Patio - They can cover these with table cloths. The light bulbs outside are yellow

                Yes, Nancy os gone and Tiffany is replacing her.. I spoke to faith about this today and they had seen enough complaints about Nancy that they felt they needed to get someone else who was more attuned to wjhat the brides need from a WC.

                They really do listen to you guys!

                    Pepper, thanks so much for posting this. Were you able to get pricing on any of the spa treatments?

                    Thanks!

                      Thanks for the review, Pepper!!! It's all is starting to look great! Did you by chance get a pic of the beach wedding gazebo? I am wanting to see how close to the water it is. Thanks again!!!
