    Hi ladies.

    I'd love to know everything and all feedback you have...

    I am currently booked to get married at Azul Sensatori but we are being ripped off with lots of overpriced extras and are now looking to change.

    I have stayed at this hotel before, but have no idea about the wedding side of things.

    Honest opinions would be really, really appreciated - I don't want to end up with the same headache again

    Katie.

      Hi Katie,
      Sorry to hear things aren't going well. We are getting married at the GRP on Dec 10th and to be very honest with you, I am also feeling a bit ripped off. There seems to be a new cost everytime I turn around. We have been trying to agree on our final contract for the last 5 months. I don't know if this helps. Good Luck with everything.

        Sunseeker, Do you have you date confirmed? I got an email a couple weeks ago and it seemed like they were changing the prices on me but I e-mailed her back all the previous e-mails I had with Damarys and she said they would honor the prices. If you already have your date confirmed I would just let her know that you were given these other prices when you booked your wedding with them. I'm sure they will be able to work it out for you. We're having our wedding on the beach with the arch and the price now has more then doubled so I was really upset but I emailed her what I had received before and she agreed to honor that price.

              Ya we have everything confirmed. I have been in many discussions regarding the changing prices, and for the most part they are honoring the originals. I just hate the debating, and I am worried that there will more surprise costs when we get there.

We had upgraded to Platinum and were annoyed by the parents that thought it was ok for their loud kids to play in the small exclusive pool instead of the 5 other bigger pools.

                Other than that the resort was great and there were quite a few weddings during our stay so it must be good. I did get an information package for their weddings so if you need any info from there I'm more than happy to pass along what I can.
                I would love any info you could send!!! we're getting married there this December hopefully!

                  Hello! I can't believe all there is to do and consider! LOL We're planning our wedding with very little time at the GRP just decided to do it this December and can't believe how much it costs I'm wondering if there is any advice for me out there as to what is a waste of money and what was really worth it. Also the gazebo looks nice but I've seen a lot of wedding photos with shadows all over the bride and groom while they are standing in it during the ceremony. AND my number one question what time of day? they say sunset is at 5pm? I don't want o get married in the middle of the heat but don't want all the pictures in the dark? How did I think I could pull this off in 2 months! LOL HELP!!!!!

                      Hi,

                      I finally have my date, April 7th at 3:00 p.m. It seems so close...yet too far hehe.
                      I have all the packages and private reception information which I have attached below.
                      I have also attached the salon price list. I am booking hair appointment for my bridesmaids and the moms. It is quite expensive for Mexico but I guess it is the goign price for Canada so I will not complain too much about that.

                      I have chosen the gala reception, which includes private room DJ and a set menu ( I am trying ot negotiate so that we can accomodate the vegetarians and those who do not like fish. They are very strict with the menus).

                      The gala option does not include a bar for alcohol that technically should already be included. They want an additional 15$ an hour per person to set up a domestic bar. I have told that it was not an option, I was just going to make my own bar, bring my own bottles. They still want to charge $15 a bottle for me to bring it into the room, which is fine, but they are really trying to get any penny out of you as they can.


                      My wedding coordinator Sandra has been good, she is responding quickly and trying to accomodate my requests as best she can. I don't have many of them but I am celiac so I have asked them for a gluten free cake and she is talking with the chef to see what they can do, which I really appreciate.

                      The beach option was really tempting but at US$85/person it seemed a bit much, especially if you then needed to pay more for a dance floor and DJ. (i think it would have amounted to an extra $2000.

                      I have chosen the Royalty package, mainly because it accomodates up to 40 people without additional charges. The others only accomodate up to 20 and hten charge an additional $12/person which can add up quicky. Plus I like to think of myself as Royal

                      Let me know if you have other questions, I have asked a lot of them and got some answers.

                      Hope this helps.
