Azul Fives 2016/2017

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone! My fiance and I are in the very beginning stages of planning our wedding in the Mayan Riviera for either November 2016 (likely) or Jan/Feb 2017 (less likely). We are still trying to narrow down properties but I have so far absolutely fallen in love with Azul Fives, especially the option of the Sky wedding. Has anyone started the process of planning a wedding at this resort or have you considered it and chosen not to have you wedding there? Any tips or thoughts would be very helpful! Feeling overwhelmed, but very excited :) 
 

Thanks!!

Congrats and welcome!

 

I'll totally agree with the two previous posts. There are several threads here about Azul Fives if you just search up top in the search bar, and MTM provided you with a couple as well. It's a beautiful resort and the Sky deck is very popular, but be aware that it's at a cost.

 

Good luck and happy planning!

Hi. My daughter is being married at Azul Fives in late Janaury 2016......not very far away. the wedding is taking place on the Sky Deck, I think. Truthfully, she lives in another city and i haven't been involved very much,other than to provide some money. I can tell you more in February after the wedding!!!

@@hirvine83 I'm getting married at AF June 7th, 2016. Selecting the resort was definitely the hardest part...until I laid my eyes on the Sky Deck and then I was sold. Although I too haven't done much planning we are booked for a 4:30 ceremony followed by a cocktail hour at the sky bar and reception on the Sky Deck.

 

Just an FYI if you do go with AF - there is a fee for the Sky Deck. We booked and got it for $1700 but I believe it's gone up to $1800. In my mind it's well worth it for that fantastic view :)

 

Happy Planning!

the sky deck is so worth it!! I had my wedding there a bit over a month ago and it was perfect. You definitely won't go wrong with it ;)

 

At times it can feel like they're nickel and diming you but it was all worth it once there. The resort is gorgeous. the service and the food is amazing and the wedding department truly go above and beyond to make sure your day is exactly as you dreamed it. I know I complained quite a bit about this resort before going there but I have nothing bad to say about it now. The price for traveling was a little bit over our budget for what we wanted our guests to pay, but everyone agreed that the extra $200 was very well worth it. For most of us, this was the best hotel we've stayed at! 

There's other brides on here that are having their wedding there pretty soon. I know @snswedding is going to the bride's dress rehearsal pretty soon :)

Hello,

 

I am also in the very beginning stages of planning a wedding in Playa Del Carmen/Riviera Maya for Feb 2017.  I am struggling with the property since I like Catalonia Riviera Maya but it seems like the higher end hotels offer more perks for groups.

 

Have you found many hotels to offer group discounts ?

Azul Fives didn't offer us many perks because we are Canadian. We got one of their packages for the reception tables and because we also upgraded our ceremony to the sky deck, our TA was able to negotiate the ceremony fee ($950) and they gave us that for free. Also, because we booked our travel with a GI certified TA, my hair and makeup were free as well as the trials. I also had a mani and pedi for free but I honestly didn't have time nor did i want to be stuck at the spa when the weather was so beautiful! 

 

I think our biggest perk, was getting every 11th person free. This was such a good deal! We got two people for free and we were able to help some of our friends and family out with that. 

 

At the end of the day, with perks or not, I have no regrets. I couldn't imagine my wedding anywhere else :)

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
