 The beach there is smaller than in some areas (they lost a lot of the beach a few years ago due to a hurricane). However the beach is beautiful, and the resort is stunning after being completely renovated about 2 years ago. The dress rehearsal is a great way for you to look at the property, taste the food, experience their fantastic service, and of course get away with your FI for a few days!

 

Murmel, thanks for the information. We've read on some reviews on Trip Advisor that people say to definitely book the remodeled rooms not the older rooms at Azul Beach, do you know at this time, have all rooms been remodeled or only some? Are there any other tips you could give for the property?

The Azul Beach, is one of the smallest of the Karisma resorts. So if you are looking for a private feel this is perfect. We had considered Azul Beach for our wedding, however they were still in the middle of renovations, and I didn't want that mess. So we choose their sister resort down the beach, the Sensatori (slightly larger at 440 rooms, and a few extra restaurants). I know they had started the renovations about 3 years ago, and the main parts (lobby, restuarants) are complete. I think they are still upgrading some rooms, but I am not sure. This should not disrupt much though.

 

The Azul Beach is a family friendly resort, and so you should be aware they are very targeted to making a family vacation wonderful. If you will be travelling with adults only, you could also consider the El Dorado Royale. This is adult only, and hence a little more upscale and quiet. Overall, the Karimsa resorts are a great choice. My husband and I travel a lot, and we are always impressed by their service and quality of food. ( take what you see on TripAdvisor with a grain of salt. A lot of people don't seem to understand that things don't happen as quickly in Mexico, as they do here. Remember to relax and go with the flow. I could not have asked for a more perfect wedding. And it was so relaxing and easy going for me, not having to do any of the work once we arrived in Mexico. They seriously took care of everything for us. The online WC in Miami can be a little slow to respond, but once you are in Mexico, the on site WC are amazing and professional! They know how to handle a wedding!)

 

Best of luck planning! And if you have questions, just ask.

The countdown is on! 2 days until we leave for our Dress Rehersal at Azul Beach. We are really excited. We talked to our TA who helped us with the booking and have arrangements to go visit Azul Fives and Azul Sensatori while we are there as well. Hopefully between the three, we'll finally be able to pick a resort for our 2014 wedding.

Hi CDC-SRW!
We leave Thursday for Azul Beach Dress Rehearsal, I'm sure we'll see you there! Have they given you any kind of itinerary? We rented a car because we wanted to check out some other resorts and do some shipping but I've heard they may have us booked with activities everyday? 

XOXO

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
