I just went to the BDR and visited Dreams Riviera.  I can tell you the beach/water at Sensatori is awful!  The seaweed is so bad and they didn't even rake it up for the wedding I saw there!!  I was originally planning on having my wedding there but once I went down to look at it I decided against it.  Azul Beach has a gorgeous beach with pretty water.  It is a smaller resort and the rooms are all updated except the basic room.  The pools were not my favorite but I really liked their reception locations and the beach.  Dreams had a really nice beach but was packed and didn't have the best food.  I did tour Generations Riviera Maya and it had a gorgeous pier you could have your wedding on but was more expensive.

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!

Just curious, what did you hear about Dream weddings and why to stay away?

@pekchw She's just had not great experiences since there are so many weddings a day with communication and other things. At the time when I asked her about them she was covering for someone in the agency and was doing damage control. The bride could have just been super picky though. All the pictures I have seen look great though!

    Want better beaches? Neither of them! Dreams Cancun/Tulum or Playacar Palace are over those, a way better!

    @IvanLuckiePhotography We've narrowed it down to either Iberostar Paraiso Lindo or Iberostar Tucan. We just got back from the Riu Yucatan and after spending a day in Cancun we love the Playa water and beach more!

    Honestly, seaweed can be a issue anywhere just depends on time, the weather, etc. how many people are you expecting? We decided with Sensatori but also went to Dreams Riviera. I liked DR a lot. Clean, good food, nice beach, but it was fairly small and thought my guests would get bored. Their wedding packages were also very expensive. Sensatori has been great. There wedding planners are in Miami, I get timely responses, great reviews, wedding options are endless.
