Hi Brides!!!  I am a new member to this forum. I recently got engaged July 6th on the beach. I am seekiing input from anyone who has been to the Azul Fives or Gran Caribe Resorts. They seems very different from one another but we are having a hard time deciding. We will have 4 children under the age of 10 and 20 guests. Initially we wanted something intimate and personal but quickly realized we need to cater to the kids as well.  Has anyone been to either resort? We plan to marry the first week of May.


Any help/experiences would be greatly appreciated! Thanks and congrats to you all :)

We have stayed 4 times at two Karisma Resorts ~ El Dorado Royal & Casitas and El Dorado Maroma.

We loved these resorts! My FI proposed to me on the beach at Maroma and we are planning our DW at EDR. These are beautiful resorts with excellent service, food, etc. That being said, we did a site visit at Azul Fives and Azul Sensatorie. Both were beautiful resorts that do allow  and cater to children. Both being a Karisma Resort, we would not hesitate to stay at either one. woot2.gif


Good Luck with your planning!

My fiancé and I stayed at the El Dorado Royale and The Royal in Playa over memorial day weekend. I really liked both places for different reasons but when it came down to choosing a place for my wedding I chose The Royal. We met both wedding coordinators and can tell you that the ones at The Royal won hands down. In just the short time we were communicating with someone at EDR we had 2 people leave or get fired. That really worried me. The Royal is beautiful and they are right next door to their sister resort Gran Porto Real which allows kids. Hope this helps! Andrea

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
