Recommended Posts

If you are contemplating a destination wedding... or just want to be pampered :) ... you must go to the Azul!

 

My husband and I planned our wedding at the Azul via e-mail with Faith, a wedding coordinator for the Karisma hotels. I cannot say enough kind words about the treatment not only the two of us received, but our entire wedding group (there were about 40 of us). And after almost 11 months of planning solely through e-mail, everything turned out as perfect as it could be. We couldn't have asked for a more incredible experience!!

 

We stayed from March 25th, 2006 until March 29th, with our wedding on the beach on the 28th. (We honeymooned at the El Dorado Royale, a sister resort, which was wonderful, too) The staff was absolutely AMAZING and they did everything to accommodate all of us. Two of our guests had a minor flood in their room and they were moved immediately. Over half of our party was "upgraded" to the Deluxe rooms free of charge.

 

The only comment that could be interpreted as "negative" was regarding the food. When we were there, only 2 restaurants were open for dinner (along with room service) so if you are staying a week, it might get a bit old. Just an FYI!

 

However, if you want the friendliest of staff, and the most relaxing of all resorts, this is the place to be... only about 2/3 of the resort was full during our stay so we literally felt like it was just our party! With only 98 rooms, you get to recognize each other, which can be a lot of fun. The evening shows were entertaining, and I believe we tried each and every tequila in the frosty-topped bar nightly!

 

A FRIENDLY TIP... bring lots of 1's (and 5's too) to tip the wait staff. They appreciate it, and it guarantees that someone will be bringing you Corona or margaritas or daiquiris right away! Also leave some for the outstanding maids... the towel arrangements were incredible!!

Another good Wedding Review at the Azul Hotel and Beach Resort!!!!

June 2006,

 

We just returned from a one week stay at the Azul Hotel to celebrate our daughter's wedding. It was truly a wedding paradise! We had 50 guests and many of their comments were, "We thought weddings like this only happened in the movies!" The setting, the weather, the resort, the staff all made for a perfect wedding. The hotel staff provided the best service I have ever experienced and made all our guests for the week feel pampered and special. We had guests of all ages and they all said this was the best wedding they had ever attended. The activities, the all inclusive food and drinks, the restaurants, and the beach palapas all made for an extremely stress-free vacation. The size of the resort makes it perfect for mingling and getting to know all our wedding guests. It is not so big that you never see anyone, or so small that you have to be together all the time. It was the perfect size and the perfect place! The Azul Hotel exceeded all our expectations. None of us will ever forget the wedding celebration. The ceremony began about 5:45, followed by the White Glove Cocktail party next to the ceremony while we took wedding pictures, then sit down dinner on the beach with a live band (the best band ever!) and dancing on the sand under the stars. The whole experience was magical! And we were able to do all this for about half the cost of a similar wedding in the US. A destination wedding may be more expensive for the guests, but they will be treated to a great wedding celebration!

 

If you do plan a wedding at the Azul Hotel be aware that at this time there is no spa, but they are building one. My daughter and her maid of honor had manicures and pedicures in their room. Also, stay on top of the details. Carolina was wonderful, but she forgot a few things like putting out the wedding programs for the guests to have during the ceremony. So make a check list for them to make sure everything gets done. Also, the photographer depended on us to tell him what groupings of photos we wanted. So come prepared with a list so you don't forget anyone. And be sure to tip individuals who provide extra service! The staff worked so hard to accommodate us at all times . . . pushing tables together at meal times so groups could sit together, recommending and providing special dishes at meals, waiting on us all day at the beach palapas. The all inclusive includes gratuities, but I don't know how much gets to each staff person so if service was extra good, I would tip. Most people don't, but when you do, it is much appreciated.

 

So if you're considering a destination wedding, this is the place!!

No I have only dealt with Faith so far, and you are right, she is super responsive! I have nothing but good things to say about her so far. My questions have all been answered really promptly. I have heard a couple of good things about Abby too. Did you deal with her personally

Weez, thats so good to hear that Faith is responsive to your questions and inquries. I can certainly say that my resorts WC is not. However from what I hear she gets better as the wedding date approaches. PHEW! Anyway, I'm so glad to hear that everything is working out well for you in your plannings thus far!
