    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. 


      Good Luck with your planning!

        My fiancĀ© 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

          I am going with EDR...mainly because I LOVED the resort when I was there for a wedding in 2008...and b/c my aunt who was married there said she had a wonderful experience!
