Just in case anyone else wanted to visit before making a decision on the resort…..I recently contacted Dreams Riviera Cancun to find out if they do anything special for a visit to see the resort for wedding purposes. Karisma resorts (Azul's, Generations, El Dorado) do this and they call it a Brides Dress Rehearsal. Dreams told me they do a $110 per person per night reduced rate for a maximum of 3 nights and if you decide to book your wedding with them then they will refund the full amount they charged you to stay there during that initial trip.
I stayed there for 4 nights at that rate for my visit in February but they never said anything about reimbursement. I'll have to ask my coordinator! Thanks!
Has anyone seen or read about the difference between the north and south beaches? Thanks!
North beach is right next to the rentals, like kayaks and stuff. There are lots of palpapas and loungers on the beach around it and when I watched a wedding (yes I was one of those people haha) there were lots of people watching with me. It's very close to the hotel. These are north beach ceremonies:
South beach is more private. No chairs around it and a bit of a walk from the hotel. I saw one wedding at the north and one wedding at the south. I actually can't find any pics of south beach ceremonies so I assume north beach is more popular.
