I need your advice on selecting the best resort for our wedding.
We are having about 60 people travel with us, and the age range will be mainly between 25-45. We travelled to Mexico last month and visited Moon Palace and Azul Sensatori for site inspections. We liked both hotels but ultimately settled on MP as it had more to offer for our guests in terms of where to stay and what activities to do while in the resort. Also, we liked the great wedding packages and the various wedding locations available. We are about to sign the paperwork to secure our wedding date, but I am having reservations. After doing some more research I am starting to realize that the beach at MP is not great due to the seaweed, and am reading that most people don't enjoy swimming in the ocean there. The beach is very important to us as majority of our guests prefer this over the pool. However, I should mention that we will not be getting married on the beach but rather will have the ceremony on one of the terraces. I should also mention that we will not be needing the chapel at MP.
We also liked Azul Sensatori during our visit, specifically for the rooftop ceremony location, great food and drinks, bridal suite, etc. However, when comparing the two against each other we chose MP for its location (Cancun), great activities, and the driveway to the resort (which looked awful at Azul when we visited but this could have been due to the rainfall). Now that I am beginning to question our decision, I am considering Azul as an option once again.
We didn't get to visit Beach Palace during our trip, but I have seen pictures online and I like their rooftop location for the ceremony. Also, their beach looks very nice in comparison to MP. I am not particularly crazy about the layout of the hotel from what I see in pictures, but am still giving it fair consideration.
If you have any thoughts on this please share as we need to sign the paperwork ASAP.
