    I love all three of these resorts for a wedding...Sensatori is a little more budget friends as we are going to use the Sooon reservation (if we reserve) for the reception. BUT, I just can't pull the trigger on this and keep going back and forth on all three of these amazing places. Tell me about the beaches at these resorts. Tell me why I shld chose one over the other. Help!! TIA!!

    @JoJoCouture  I am right there with you!  I am going to go visit all three on Wednesday because I can't decide.

    All have different selling features for sure. We chose Sensatori and did a visit last month just to make sure it was what we wanted... And it was perfect! Our priority was excellent food and service as well as being family friendly. It's big enough where people aren't tripping over one another, but not a mega-complex where we would lose one another over the week. It was a winner by a long shot!

      Those things are also really important to us.  This really prods me more towards my initial choice of Sensatori.  Thank you so much!!


      @MandM2014...I wish I had the time to go visit as well.  Way too much travel this year - time and money doesn't allow for it.  I think I'm going to sleep on it and go with my gut feeling in the am.  Dates are already filling up SO fast for next June!

        If bride are hiring an outside photographer, check out the outside vendor policy, some resorts like Azul Beach charges 800USD for photographers to come into property, I am not sure about the Dreams resorts but it must be something like 300USD, each resort changes it often and have different policy :) happy planning!

        @IvanLuckiePhotography  Definitely something to think about! Outside vendor fees can definitely add up!


        I said "yes" again to the love of my life at Grand Coral Beach Club, Playa del Carmen, Mexico on our 4th anniversary - October 20, 2015

        Good luck ladies

         

        Read all contracts especially when it comes to outside vendors.

         

         

         

        Happy Planning!

          Consider if you want an outside photographer the hotel "vendor outside fee" I think Dreams charge 300USD and perhaps just a day pass (around 100 USD), Azul Sensatori and any other Karisma will be 800USD...

          My travel agent suggested Azul Sensatori for us. A top priority is the beach and the color of the ocean since it makes for gorgeous pictures. She sent me a ton of info, pictures and video of the resort I can forward you if you'd like. It was ruled out for us because it was not 100% handicap friendly and my fiances twin is in a wheelchair. I was also told to stay away for Dreams for weddings so didn't look into them. Good luck it's tough decision for sure!

          If beach and ocean color are your top priority I'm not sure why your TA would recommend sensatori since these are the only 2 things that are considered downsides to this fabulous resort! It was however wheelchair friendly aside 1 half flight of stairs up to the sky deck... We saw many people enjoying the resort when there, who were wheelchair bound.
