Riviera Maya site visits

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

My FI and I are going to the Karisma Bride Rehearsal Weekend this weekend. We are staying at the Azul Sensatori for 3 nights and have added a night at the Now Sapphire.


Our TA is planning some more site visits for us. What do you think of the below choices? Food is very, very important to us. We also prefer a beach ceremony.  My FI is super picky so service and cleanliness is a top priority and nothing too run down.I am still trying to go againt my future MIL and do adults only so we will be seeing those as well.


Also let me know if anyone has any questions they want me to ask! We will take lots of pictures to post.

I'm a little overwhelmed choosing the site visits. I want to see the correct places and am a little sad I won't be able to tast the food.


Azul Sensatori - Staying 3 nights. Sit visit there as part of bride rehearsal weekend

El Dorado Royal - I have stayed there in the past for a wedding and loved it. Karisma is doing a presentation there from 9am-1pm on Saturday.

Now Sapphire- Staying 1 night. Hopefully site visit on Monday.


The other hotels I want to look at are:


Family Friendly:


Dreams Riviera Cancun

Moon Palace

(Might not have time for both)


Adults Only:

One of the Excellence properties - Can't decide which

Secrets Maroma

Iberostar (maybe...this is the last one I want to see so that can come off the list)

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • 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.
