    Hey Ladies!

    I thought I'd start a thread all about the Laguna Azul so that we can help each other out. The delay of the opening of the hotel makes me nervous, but its been posted that it will be 100% fully operational as of September 3, 2009 (yay for my May 2010 wedding LOL)

    How have you made out with contacting the wedding co-ordinator? How far along are you with your planning!

    I'll check my wedding information tonight and see what I can post in terms of their wedding package to help other brides if they'd like to choose this resort.

      Hey Paulsgirl. My FI and I are torn between this resort and the Melia Varadero. My TA is pushing me away from this resort simply because it is brand new and they may not have all of the kinks of being so new worked out. We are also in May (the 18th) When is your date? If you don't mind me asking, what rates did you guys get? Any info/photos you have on this resort would be greatly appreciated!

        Hi, I'm currently booked at Dreams Tulum in Mexico but having serious second thoughts and leaning towards Iberostar Laguna Azul instead. I'd be really interested in any contact information for the hotel/wedding coordinator that you've been able to find!
        Thanks :)

            I just heard back from the resort and they included the attached rates/information about their "renewal of vows" package. Perhaps they sent me this because I asked for a symbolic ceremony - I'm not sure if there is a second/different wedding package available.
            I also sent off a bunch of questions back to the coordinator and will let everyone know the answers as soon as I hear back.

              I was finally able to dig up the wedding package that Maydelin at the Laguna Azul sent me :)

              The email address to reach Maydelin (at least the one she sent me) is comercial.lagunaazul@playaalamedavaradero.co.cu

              Some other info she told me:
              - You can reserve a private a la carte after 8:30pm for a private reception for $150 CUC per hour
              - If you'd like an earlier dinner, you can reserve the beach, poolside or a la carte for a private reception for $150.00 CUC per hour (this includes beach/poolside decorations) ***We're Doing a Poolside***
              - At the current time, the hotel does not have a pricelist for extra bridesmaid flowers, decorations, etc (this will hopefully be released once the hotel opens September 1st)
              - For $18 CUC per person, you can upgrade the dinner meal included in the wedding package to lobster (this is only charged for the guests that want lobster)

                      Thanks so much Clarisse! I was also not able to open them...gotta get posting too! I am so torn about this hotel...I think it would be amazing to be in a brand new hotel but am weary of all the problems they have been having. My TA only got one quote from Sunwing and said a lot of carriers won't quote this hotel right now. Anyone else going through the same thing?
