Hey Ladies, while doing some resort research I came across the Now Riviera Cancun. The resort is about 1 year old. It also seems very reasonable in price. Has anyone heard of this resort or had a wedding here? I am going for a site visit next month so I can let everyone know what I find!

Hi Carly, we just got engaged at the NOW Riviera in February- we liked it so much, we decided to get married there this November! It's beautiful, the food is amazing, and the staff is INCREDIBLE!

Hi Carly!

 

I am also considering having my wedding at the NOW. We went there in October and it was very nice. Trip Advisor has mixed reviews but we really enjoyed it. We have stayed at the Dreams Tulum before too and it was comprable to that. The only thing I didn't like about the NOW was that their room service menu wasn't the greatest but that really isn't a big deal. Let me know if you want me to send you some pics of the resort! My email is brownwedding2011@gmail.com

Hi Ladies!

After consideration of many resorts in the Riviera Maya area, I have put a reservation on May 7, 2011 at Now Jade Riviera Cancun. It does get excellent reviews on tripadvisor, expedia, etc. There have been some minor complaints, such as waiting long at restaurants, some say weak drinks, some say not enough nightlife. But, hey, every place is going to have some complaints. The main reason I chose it was because it is a good value for the guests, the place has a modern decor and appears to have been recently updated, and the venues for the wedding ceremony and reception look great. I have been working with Jill from Sand and Sun Vacations, whom I found here, and she has been great. I can't wait to hear what you guys think after your site visits. I think we'll be making one in August.

I just found Now in my research this week and i loved how affordable it seems for all the amenities it seems to have. I am working with Jill too, and we were also looking for a late april/early may 2011 wedding. Keep me updated when you start finding out more about the wedding packages at the Now.

Hi,

I know that the Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun used to be the Paradisus Rivieria Cancun (they bought the hotel on May first) so if you are looking for information about that one you can go over to the Paradisus Thread (although we are all sort of in the dark with the hotel changing over a lot of things are changing). Not sure if this helped, but I thought I'd try.

Thanks ktchi, that does help. I'll check that out. I can't even find a website for them...just reading reviews on tripadvisor and expedia. Im relying on my TA to hopefully provide the info I need.

    • Hi Patty, thank you so much for your reply. I will definitely check out each of these resorts and 5e attachments that you have provided.  Can you suggest a Canadian TA?
    • Congratulations Amanda and welcome to the forum! Absolutely use a travel agent. You will get the best rates & personalized for you and your guests. We can definitely give you resort suggestions & answer any questions you have, but your best bet for pricing will be to contact a Canadian TA. Canadian rates are different than the US market and are typically packaged with the air plus using a Canadian TA you and your guests can pay in CAD.   Karisma resorts are known for their "gourmet inclusive" food options.  Sensatori Punta Cana is a beautiful resort that opened a few years ago. They offers a sky terrace for weddings & reception. They are next to Nickelodeon Punta Cana and share many of the same restaurants. There is an awesome waterpark for kids that is available for a nominal fee.   In Punta Cana Now Onyx is a popular option & we have stayed there twice. The food is good and adults have the added bonus of being able to go to Breathless Punta Cana which is an adults only resort next door.  Now Onyx is in the process of adding a sky terrace for weddings with reception area attached.  Royalton Resorts are another great option. Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana has a terrace overlooking the ocean and Royalton Riviera Cancun has an open air chapel overlooking the ocean. They are great family friendly resorts.  Resort info is attached for all of these options & we have stayed at or toured all of them as well. Please take a look and let me know what questions we can answer. Thanks!

    • The most recent post I found for Azul Fives brides is here -- although it hasn't been updated much:    You can also find a Cancun-Riviera Maya FB group hosted by this forum here, that will have various info you might find helpful! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CancunRMBrides/ Since you are considering Azul Fives for your wedding, I also encourage you to check out this promotion because it could save you a good amount of money on your wedding -- the only requirement is that you use Wright Travel, which is the official travel agency of the BDW forum! But their services are free, so it's a total bonus and will be a huge help as you plan your wedding celebration Hope that helps!!!  
    • Can’t seem to find the forum for Azul Fives with the last year? If someone could post the link that would be great!  I am just starting to loosely plan my wedding and this resort is on my top list. Thanks!
    • Hi there I’ve been engaged for a few months now and we beginning to talk about our wedding. We are 33 and 34 years old, We think we want it to be in Mexico or DR. We expect about 50 guests including children. We don’t want to get married or have our reception on the beach. My Fiancé is a chef so we also would like good food! We would also like to keep the cost under $1800 per guest flying from Nova Scotia, Canada.  Any suggestions as to how or where to start the planning process? Should we use a travel agent?  Any experienced brides that can suggest a resort ? Thank you! amanda
