Pros: Dj as well as dancefloor and add ons , both Spanish and English speaking, good communication, affordable
Cons: None
Carlos (DJ Mannia) was very professional from the beginning . It was comforting that we had video chatted prior to the wedding and travel date. We had scheduled that as an appointment. That's when we discussed the details and order of how the reception would go.  He sent a form with all preferences and song choices for you to fill out. Since it was a destination wedding and already felt axiety over it being so different to plan, it was nice I felt confident that this vendor was reliable, well known and had great reviews. He didn't disappoint!!  We rented the life size love sign , illuminated dance floor that set off two sparkler fireworks at our first dance as well as adding an extra hour of music to our reception. Even with the vendor fee added from the resort , we still saved money than booking directly the from the resort. Everyone was WOW'd by the love sign and it added so much light to the reception area (beach). Our guests took pictures by it all night long! The dance floor was so fun , I thought at first it may be cheesy that it lit up but it brought life to the dance floor and really helped create a party atmosphere. The fireworks were such a nice touch for our dance and some of my most favorite pictures!  I sent Carlos a sheet of songs I perfer. I knew he would do just great but I am a music snob. I like what I like and it was nice he followed my list without any doubt. The highlight of the night was when he handed out these balloon thingys to dance with . It was a blast ! Everyone got up to the dance floor and we went crazy !!  Overall I cannot say anything bad about our experience, if anything DJ Mannia made our party even that much better . I will never forget our wedding night .We are so blessed on how it turned out and how much it represented our love for each other and to our friends and family . You will not regret booking with Dj Mannia, it was effortless , affordable and worth every penny !!

I’m so happy I chose DJ MANNIA. It was smooth sailing from the beginning right to the end. They kept all my guests on the dance floor. They helped with suggestions when I got stuck with music and they were open to all my opinions and ideas. Just the best!

These guys are professional as can be. At first, I was very if-y regarding choosing DJ Mannia as our DJ service for our wedding solely because being from another country, it is very hard to provide a deposit of a big amount from the get go. But Carlos made us feel very comfortable & it made it easier for us to choose them. Upon providing our deposit, I was worried that they may not get back to us after but instead, Carlos made sure to email us reminders of what needs to be sent to them regarding the music sheet & he made sure that we were okay & if we needed any help! That's very rare for a company to offer such assistance! They are very legitimate. They've walked us through their services & cost very thoroughly even though we are far.

They were very prompt & provided a spectacular service during our planning & on the day of for both ceremony & reception. The music was on point. Each & everyone of my guests advised me that the DJ service was really great! They all enjoyed the music & party! Carlos was very courteous from the beginning & his team was just as great as him. If I were to do my wedding again, I would choose them over & over again. 

One of his team members even took it upon himself to provide us a ride to the reception when the resorts golf cart did not arrive on time! Kudos to them for the extra service & value! You will NOT make a mistake if you choose them to be your DJ service for you wedding, I guarantee that 100%!

Thank you Carlos & the whole DJ Mannia Team for making our wedding memorable & successful not for my wife & I but also for our guests. For that, we will always be grateful!

Pros: Everything
Cons: None
We had our wedding on June 25th at the Majestic Colonial Punta Cana. From day one Carlos was there to assist with any questions or request we had. Everything he offered was as described. Being a Dj my self I was worried that they couldn’t deliver or meet my expectations but let me tell you, between Carlos and Eddy they went above and beyond to make our night very special, I didn’t have to worry about anything they know what they are doing and they are very professional, it was well worth it to hire them !!!!! Thank you guys !!!

Pros: Professional, affordable, fun
Cons: none
We booked DJ Mannia's team for our wedding in May at the Majestic Mirage and couldn't have been any happier with our decision! Eddy from his team met with us two days before the wedding to go over everything. They brought lights, cold fireworks, and fun balloons for everyone to dance with. I also got the love sign from DJ Mannia. They checked with me before going through the different events (like speeches, cake cutting) to make sure I was ready so we could control the flow of the event. The MC Victor was phenomenal!! He danced with our group and kept the energy level up the whole time. Even those in our group who don't dance were out dancing. When I was one of the only people on the dance floor (I love to dance and will totally dance solo) Victor would change the music and start dancing and get everyone back into the party. Even with the vendor fee we had to pay the resort, they still ended up saving us money. They made our special day amazing!

Cons: NONE!
We had the very BEST wedding reception and it was all thanks to Dj Mannia and his crew! They kept the party going all night long! My husband literally did not sit down at all- he danced ALL night (and he is not one to dance usually). The whole experience with Dj Mannia went so well- from booking, online communication, meetings, etc! We got a few extras for our party, like the LOVE letters, under the table lighting, fog and bubble machine and the LED dance floor! I would 100% recommend them to anyone- hands down the best DJ in Punta Cana!! They will make your wedding reception one that you will never forget!!!

Pros: Awesome party
Very happy with the service Mannia provided!! They know how to get a party going!! The DJ was was awesome and played a great mix of music. I had lots of compliments about the DJ and the party from my guests. The booking process was easy and they were a great company to work with. Defiantly recommend

Pros: Price, service, professionalism, communication, equipment!
Cons: NONE!
Mannia was the best decision I made for my wedding. Worth every single penny PLUS MORE! This company was professional, above average and made planning my destination wedding entertainment easy and stressfree. I communicated with this company via email for almost a year. They responded right away, answered all my questions, sent pictures to help me visualize lighting & setup, and even offered suggestions on how to make party better. The day before my wedding I met with DJ Eddie to go over the reception schedule, important songs of the night, and setup. Eddie was awesome during our meeting and made us feel like we had nothing to worry about and we were in good hands. The night of our wedding everything was perfect, our guests never stopped dancing, my husband danced 4 hours straight (and he NEVER dances) and I know this was because our DJ played great songs to start the party and keep it going. I made additional purchases for extra LED lights, big block led "LOVE" letters, and a confetti machine. All were so awesome, especially the confetti machine. The price for these extras was worth every penny and I think very affordable. We even had cold fireworks go off TWICE during our ceremony which was a great surprise! Do not miss our opportunity to hire this company. They have this down to a science. If I could hire them again I would, 100 times!! Thank you so much Mannia, Carlos, Eddie, & Zulma! You made my wedding and planning experience easy, stress-free & wonderful! It was the best night of my life.

Pros: Professionalism, great music, awesome light up dance floor, reasonable price
Cons: none
We hired Mannia Cancun for our destination wedding at Now Sapphire in Mexico, March 2017. DJ Carlos and MC Fernando did an absolutely fantastic job! They played all the songs we requested, even vague foreign language songs to satisfy our eastern european family members. They stuck to the genres we liked and read the crowd perfectly. The dance floor was packed the entire night!!! They were organized, professional, and most importantly A TON OF FUN. The cost of hiring them was similar to the resort DJ but their price included a light up dance floor. If I can give you any advice, make sure you go for the light up dance floor! It was such a hit!    Highly recommend Mannia Cancun, we could not be happier with the way everything turned out.

Pros: Had all the music we requested and more.
Cons: N/A
We just had our destination wedding two weeks ago at the Dreams Resort and Spa and hired DJ Mannia. At first I was nervous being in a different country and handling everything via email, but I was not disappointed at all. My husband and I danced the night away and our guest had a great time.

Pros: Great variety of music! Everyone danced ALL night!
Cons: Nothing!
Everything about our wedding day was perfect, including our DJ services. Very friendly and professional. The MC did a great job announcing the wedding party, the speeches, the dances, etc. The music for dinner was great. exactly the kind of music we were hoping for. Our first dance was incredible, the cold fireworks were a very nice, special touch!   Our DJ was great! He played all the music we wanted and was great about taking on the spot requests. I am not kidding when I tell you that we had a full dance floor (from age ranges 3-86!) ALL night. It was amazing. Great vareity of music for everyone to enjoy! The lighting and sound system were perfect for the outdoor setting. It started to get dark around 7pm, so the light effects were great. It was the best night of our lives, and Mannia played a big part of that! THANK YOU!
Pros: Everything!!
Cons: Nothing - you will not be disappointed!!
Carlos and DJ Mannia just DJ'd and MC'd our destination wedding in Punta Cana on July 12 at the Gran Bahia Príncipe. Super quick communication via email with us being from Canada. Willing to help us decide the best add-ons to make our wedding party fun and memorable.
We were having an issue with the resort projector to play a video and slideshow and Carlos made himself available and helped get it working - he wants to make sure your wedding night goes as smooth as possible!!
Huge thank you to Carlos and the DJ Mannia crew for making our Desination wedding and reception such a hit. Our 80 guests are still talking about our night!!
Keep doing what you are doing!!

Pros: Timely and Professional
Cons: None
Planning a destination wedding can be difficult at times since you never actually get to meet your vendors. Was this a problem with Mannia? Not at all! The booking process was so easy. I filled out a questionnaire in advance for special requests/information regarding my reception. I purchased the infinity white dance floor and a few uplights. After that, I left everything up to faith. At my wedding, I did not even get a chance to see them set up but as my MC called me and my husbands names, I walked out and everything looked perfect. Loved the beautiful dance floor and the uplights on the trees!! They played all the songs I wanted to hear throughout the night. DJ Frank was great! The whole process was so seamless I did not have to stress about anything! Do not hesitate, just go with Mannia Cancun! You guys will not regret it :)  
Pros: PARTY ANIMALS, fun, professional, perfect
Cons: None!
We found DJ Mannia through online reviews and we couldn’t have been happier! Their prices are fair for everything you get with the service - You get 4 hours of music, an MC, party lights with the DJ booth, cold fireworks, as well as some light up props for the dance floor. We paid for an extra hour of music, which was extremely reasonable. They were super easy to communicate with via email and up until the wedding we worked with Victor. He was great at answering any questions we had, adding the additional hour, and clarifying any information he needed to pass on to the DJ. Music was one of the MOST IMPORTANT elements of our wedding and they NAILED IT! Our MC was Fernando (or maybe Fransisco, honestly I forget, but we were having so much fun and too be honest, we didn’t need to chat with him a lot because he was AMAZING at his job). He did all of our introductions, special dances and speeches flawlessly (impeccable English). He is extremely entertaining and professional. Once our photographers had left, we even asked him to take a few photos and he immediately obliged. They played exactly what we wanted to hear to keep everyone dancing and partying. My FAVORITE part (aside from the party) were the FIREWORKS. The picture/video are AMAZING with the fireworks – they definitely are JUST what you want at your wedding!

Pros: Punctuality, motivation
Cons: nothing
We got married in Cancun and choosed Dj Mannia services.
Everything was perfect! They contact us via email so we could talk about how we wanted the songs at the party to be like. Our wedding reception was amazing. They really took care of everything, they even mixed a song just like we wanted and these things are really hard to explain via email.
The DJ who came to our wedding was very charismatic and everyone went to the dance floor when he invited. He event took care of some signs we brought so our drunk guests wouldn't break them..
Everything was amazing!

This company is top notch. Booking process is hassle free. Communication is very fast and professional. Their service at the reception was absolutely top notch and I can not recommend this company enough. If your looking for a DJ this is the company to use.

Pros: Professional, Nice, Great price for amount of service
Cons: None!
My husband and I got married at Melia Caribe Tropical in Punta Cana on January 12, 2016 and it was a dream come true destination wedding.  When I first got in contact with Mannia, I was worried about the cost, but Carlos was so informative and I was shocked at what we were getting for the cost and I couldn't be more thrilled!  We were expecting about 30 people when we first told people, but when the time came, due to the timing and cost we had 14 people come to our wedding.  It wasn't a bad thing at all, we knew it would still be a blast, but we were worried about only having 14 people and whether or not people would want to dance and what kind of music would be played for the variety of ages.  On the day of our wedding, we met Ron (our DJ and MC) and he was so professional, personable, and really sweet.  The music that was played was perfect!!! It was such a great mix during dinner and during "party time."  We all were having such a great time we didn't even realize when we sat down we only had 15 minutes left of the night.  It was such an amazing time and we realize that a big part of that was because of Mannia - we thank you (especially Carlos and Ron) for such an amazing experience and time!!!

We got married at the Finest Playa Mujeres on October 17th. Mannia Cancun was the provided vendor of the hotel and we were very happy with the service they provided. We had them at our rehearsal dinner as well as at our wedding. At our rehearsal they were there to run our music and our slide show and at the wedding they were there to DJ and MC  the entire event.    Prior to the wedding this vendor did a grew job getting in touch with me and they provided all the information i needed. They gave us a simple sheet to fill out so that they could best accommodate our style and our taste. They did a wonderful job of this and all along I felt like they were very organized.    My brother was responsible for getting our rehearsal music and our ceremony music to them and they did a great job taking direction and running it seamlessly.    The only party that I wasn't happy with was at the reception. When they announced our wedding party we asked them to do the first dance just following. Not only did they do the 1st dance with me and my new Husband but they jumped right into the mother-son dance and the father-daughter dance. It was too much to have them one after another. I would have preferred to do the other two dances while our guests ate and instead they just whipped through all three of them. I didn't know I needed to be that specific with this vendor. If you are looking to use this vendor for your wedding, I would have a timeline mapped out so you don't run into the same issue.   Overall we had an amazing time and LOVED the MC and music they played. All of our guests told us how much fun they had and what a great party it was. Thank you for a wonderful event!

Pros: Professional, Timely, Music Variety
Cons: None
I got married October 17th at the Dreams Punta Cana Resort & Spa. The DJ services from Mannia were GREAT to say the least! Music means a great deal to me, especially for such a memorable even like my wedding. So, I have to admit that I was concerned about the language barrier at first as I don't speak Spanish and the DJ's English was limited, but they assured me that they have done plenty of weddings and that I have absolutely nothing to worry about. And they were right! I was able to meet with them a day before to go through everything, which put me at ease. I let them know that I had a group of about 70 guests, and I wanted the majority of the evening to have a fun/party vibe. They certainly delivered! My guests could not stop talking about how great the DJ was! Even the staff at Dreams told me and my husband that they've never had a reception this fun! He played everything I wanted and nothing I didn't want. We danced all night! Additionally, he worked seamlessly with my MC, who was my cousin. It was as if they had worked together previously! Moral of the story, hire DJ Mannia for your big day...you WILL NOT be disappointed!!! They are professional, accommodating, and knowledgeable about different types of music. Thank you so much, Mannia, for making it "a night to remember" (one of our songs lol)!!!
Pros: Everything!
Cons: Nothing!
How can my (new) husband and I put into words the happiness Carlos at DJ Mannia provided for us at our reception? It was the best party I've ever been to. The music was right for each moment of the night from slow and easy for first course, to loud and energetic when it was time to get everyone dancing. The best part of the night was when he played on cue a special song I danced with my mom.    The fireworks were an unexpected big hit and so were those balloons. Everyone seemed to go crazy when they hit the dance floor.  We couldn't have asked for a better DJ to host our special night! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Pros: Hire them!
Cons: None
DJ Mannia and his team was fabulous!!!! We truly can't say enough about them! They keep the party going and everyone danced and had a blast all night long!!! They handled everything beautifully! They confirmed twice all our must play and do not play lists. Last minute my husband changed the song he wanted to dance to with his mom and they accommodated the request with no problem. The MC was fantastic and very funny! My husband and I would hire them again any day! No Cons only Pros!!! Thank you for making our wedding reception unforgettable!

Pros: dj comes early to set up nd stays late if he has to
Cons: none!!!!
Dj mannia was the dj at our wedding at the excellence riviera cancun on june 27th 2015, let me begin to say the the MC fernando i think his name was, he was awesome, partied with us, listened to my and my guests requests and had us dancing all night. Dj service was very professional and laid back at the same time, i wanted them to feel comfortable and let the crow direct where the music was going, and indeed they listened. i couldn't have asked for anything more! thank you mannia and thank you Fernando for being such a cool guy Jason&Giovanna ( roof on fire) lol

Pros: Great music, friendly staff, excellent lighting
Cons: None!
DJ Mannia was the preferred vendor at our resort (Excellence Riviera Cancun). I had read mixed reviews prior to our wedding. I wasn't too worried about it, just hoping for the best. They definitely exceeded our expectations! We had zero issues. We had requested top 40/upbeat dance music. I specifically said that I didn't want any cliché wedding reception songs (e.g. Come on, Eileen, Brown Eyed Girl, etc.), and they didn't play a single one. Everyone was dancing the whole time - even people that we almost never see dance. They played fun, upbeat, awesome songs. They even pulled out some "old school" dance songs from the 90's, which was great for our group. The lighting was excellence, and the DJs were very friendly. Overall, I am so glad we had DJ Mannia for our reception. It really added a lot of "special" to the night. I would highly recommend.
