Azul Sensatori - Magda and Neil's wedding

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the review.... the wedding pics look great. Do you have any pics for the resort as well? Did you get any grief from the guests having your wedding so close to the holidays? We are thinking of the same time frame for '09 and have not been getting good feedback?

We were a bit concerned about being so close to Xmas, but I didn't hear any complaints as almost everyone was home by Xmas eve. It helped in that a lot of people were able to get off work easily near the holiday. I guess overall I didn't think it was an issue, beside the fact that Azul's prices go way up after Dec 23.

Awesome post - thanks for writing it all up! Mind if I ask you a couple of little details?

 

Which bouquet did you choose? The spec sheet I have lists basic, deluxe and premium.

 

Also I'm curious what made Tulum beach so much better than the one at the resort. Bigger waves to play in? Or calmer? (Depends on personal preference there I suppose). Or just better sand? My fiancee and I both love snorkelling, surfing and playing at the beach so this weighs in fairly heavily.

 

Thanks!

Chris

The beach was breathtaking and we all wanted to jump in. The vans were booked through the hotel on short notice and showed a bit late. Turns out the short drive to Tulum of 80 km took nearly 2 hours one way. Bring snacks!! We came back by 3 and were famished and a bit grumpy.

So, I picked a basic $50 bouquet which was the red and pink roses, but I also wanted Mexican Calla Lilies, so it ended up being $80. Pretty much anything you want in a bouquet can be made as long as you describe it well.

The Tulum beach had really big waves and the water was bluer and the sand was nicer. Also it was set along a beautiful cliff. If you want to get in the water, I would probably not choose the Azul Sensatori for the beach. It's fine to look at, but not good for getting in.

Thank you for our post!!!  My fiance and I just stayed there this past June, and all the little "kinks" you mentioned seemed to have been fixed since then!!!  We bokoed our wedding there for next July and cannot wait. But without this website and brides like you, I would pull my hair out not knowing what to expect.  Thanks again :)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
