Newbie! - Azul Fives, Dreams Riviera, Or Now Jade?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! I've been delaying on planning my wedding for awhile and I decided to stop procrastinating and finally picked the date (November 5th, 2016), but not the resort! I'm glad I ran into this site, there's tons of info here. I've been conflicted on choosing these three resorts - Azul Fives, Dreams Riviera, and Now Jade. For anyone what have visited these resorts, what are the pros and cons?


I like that all three have clean and modern look, but all three have varying price range. The resort I'm leaning toward is Azul Five mainly because it's gourmet-oriented (I like good food), but I'm wondering if I'm "missing out" on better package and quality on other resorts. So far, in terms of group rates, Dreams Riviera has the most expensive rate, then Azul Fives, then Now Jade. I'm surprised that there is only two Azul Fives review on this site, I thought it would be more popular than that. Anyways, please help! Thanks!

@@dinar Welcome and congrats on your upcoming wedding! I can't comment on Dreams Riviera or Now Jade as I haven't been to either BUT I did just come back from my wedding at Azul Fives and LOVED it!! Let me know if you have any specific questions. 


I would type in Azul Fives in the search field and there will be a ton of threads that pop up (probably not so much in the actual 'review' section). There is a ton of info on Azul Fives on this site as many brides have been married there.  Food was a big thing that drew me to Azul Fives - my husband and I love food too plus we had some guests who are not drinkers so we knew we wanted to make sure we could offer a resort with high quality food.  :)

@@dinar Yes, we loved it! We also did the Brides Dress Rehearsal in September before our January wedding and that helped a lot. 


Why we chose Azul Fives:

- Family Friendly (we had 9 kids in our group)

- Good food (we love good food and several of our guests don't drink so we knew food had to be a top priority)

- A la carte Weddings (most resorts have set packages that only included up to 20-25 guests and that just didn't work with our budget. Although you can spend a fortune on a Karisma wedding, if you are careful you can have a beautiful wedding on a budget)

- Boutique sized resort (not a huge resort but big enough that it has different areas for people to explore)

- The price was right (we paid $1630 flying from Toronto Jan 6-13- flight included)


The cons:

- Lobby (we've been to some resorts with really grand entrances that really make a first impression. Azul Fives in comparison is a little underwhelming but this was really not a big deal to us)

- New section (if you're in the new section on the property it is a bit far from the beach and some restaurants. If you have guests with mobility issues this might be something to consider requesting a villa in the older section.)

- Golf carts (if you need transportation for guests, it does take a while to get a golf cart....although as the bride myself I never had to wait on the wedding day! ;) )


I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any other questions.

Azuls five is an amazing but inexpensive 5 star with a beautiful sky terrace venue (other venues as well)

You will be hard pressed to find any negative info on it


I do not know much about the other properties so I can not speak to them

    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)
