    I am not sure if I am posting this in the proper location, so please correct me if I am not.  :)

     

    I have been reading review after review about AI resorts in and around Cancun.  I have also gone over the reviews on this site.  I really like the Azul Beach and Dreams Riviera Cancun. 

     

    My main interests are a great beach, great food, and drinks, plus family friendly...since I will have my two sons (5 & 6) there.  

     

    Has anyone looked into these two locations...what was the deciding factor for you.  I don't know if I am missing any pieces...this decision is consuming me!  

     

    I really would appreciate any help or advice!

     

    Thanks!

    Hi @taralyn8

     

    We are leaning towards Azul Beach but will make the final decision when we go to the Bride's Dress Rehearsal scouting trip planned for later this month.  I have a 9 year old niece and possibly 2 young flower girls to factor in. I've also read great reviews.  For us, truly good food and a resort that offers activities was the driving factor. We want guests to see this as a vacation and not just a wedding. 

     

    Hope that helps.

    We are very familiar with both resorts.  We are a diamond level five agency with Karisma hotels which is their highest level and only a handful of agencies reach that level a year as well as a top agency with AMResorts (Dreams).

     

    There are pros and cons to each resort.  I love the food at Karisma resorts and think it is some of the best AI food.  AMResorts has a great 3G promotion that is more generous with the free rooms.  Also they are in slightly different price points so you need to see what fits your budget.

     

    Here are some links that might be helpful to you and of course you can email/pm me with any questions.

    We had the same criteria and ended up with Beaches Turks & Caicos.  VERY family friendly and great reviews!
