      Hi. If you don't mind me asking but what did you think of their packages. What about the ceremony locations, are they just as they are pictured? I am having trouble deciding on whether to go with Moon Palace, Barcelo Maya Palace or Azul Sensatori. I'd appreciate any input you can give me....Thanks

      Sorry for the slow reply, we were out of town at a friends' wedding.
      We actually travelled down and looked at the Barcelo Maya Palace. It is a resort which has 4-5 other resorts bunched together (all Barcelo resorts). It is huge (which is not what we wanted...all together I think they said it was about 3000 rooms) But the beach was stunning at the Maya Palace, and they had a wonderful white gazeboo just up from the beach. There was also a very quite corner (to the north of the main beach) set behind some palm trees looking over the ocean. If your group was small enough (I think max. 25 people) that's what I would choose. It was beautiful.
      Did not look at the Moon Palace, so I can't help there.
      The Azul Sensatori has 4 different sites on the beach, a gazeboo and a roof top patio over looking the ocean(at an extra cost). We have choosen to do the beach option, just because we want it to be casual and we are at a beach!

      Wish you all the best, I should be online more often now. I think I even have some pictures from the Barcelo if you want me to send them to you.
      Cheers!

          Hi there. Thanks so much for the info. It's been so overwhelming trying to figure out what's best for us with our families in mind. As much as we liked the Azul, I think it would be asking too much of our guest. At this point we are waiting to hear from Moon Palace, Dreams and recently added the Now Jade. I just hope things fall into place once a date is confirmed. Best of luck with your planning!

          The Dreams resorts are great for families as well. That was our #2 choice. I think Moon Palace and Now Jade are adults only resorts. Not sure if that's what you are looking for. Another wonderful adults only resort would be The Excellence, if you need a suggestion, and it's more reasonable priced then Now Jade (at least from Toronto).
