Pros: professional, responsive, courteous, detailed
Cons: none

My husband and I are so glad that we picked DJ Mannia for our Xcaret Park wedding last month.  Joanna, Carlos, and their team were so helpful, responsive, professional, courteous. 


We chose DJ Mannia after reading many reviews and plenty of research online.  We were supposed to have DJ Xcaret for our wedding, but we could not find any reviews or youtube videos on who DJ Xcaret was, so we didn't want to take the risk and we're so happy we didn't.


Their pricing is definately reasonable and we received many compliments on the lighted dancefloor.  Our wedding coordinator at Luxe Destination Weddings was quoting us so much more, so I contacted DJ Mannia directly and they were able to work the dancefloor into our package.


All of the correspondence was done via email and it worked out fine.  We met Carlos and team a couple of days before our wedding in our hotel lobby to go over the order of events, music, bridal party names, etc.  They showed up in uniform and were very polite and warm.  They went through all the details and made sure they had everything they needed from us on our wedding day.  At the reception, the MC even went to each of our bridal party members and practiced saying their names so they wouldn't pronounce it incorrectly.  It was very nice of him to do that for us.  We also decided to purchase party props like hats, glow in the dark sungless, masks, maracas, etc. last minute and they accommodated us with the purchase. 


Everybody loved the music, props, DJ, lighted dancefloor, etc.  We are so happy that they provided such an amazing service!

Hi brides,

I just had a wedding in Punta Cana on May 8, 2014 at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe. It was an amazing wedding, but the only downside was the DJ company I used. I used Dj Mannia because of the great things I've heard about them thru forums.

HOWEVER, I have to let other brides know about my negative experience because for $1,300 US I was very disappointed at the company and wished I had gone with a different DJ/MC service.

FIrst of all, the people who I had e-mail correspondence with did not tell me that the DJ is also the MC. I still went ahead with it because of all the positive reviews on this forum.

The people I had e-mail correspondence with named Amy and Carlos Martinez did not give my DJ/MC the music file for our FIRST DANCE (we did a medley of songs), so I sent my mp3 file ahead of time, so that they can download our music. They also did not send German my wedding day timeline that I had e-mailed days ahead.

I was VERY DISAPPOINTED at this company, and would not recommend this company because they made the DJ/MC so unprepared for my wedding and it basically delayed everything by AT LEAST 15 minutes because the DJ/MC came up to us at the beginning of the wedding and asked for our first dance and I said "you didn't download it?" he said whoever I spoke with did not give it to him. Luckily, I had the song downloaded on my iPhone, so he attached it on the dock.

Then, he was going over the dj questionnaire about introductions, and I was thinking the whole time, how can our MC seem like he doesn't know the flow of our wedding? I asked him about the timeline and he said he did not receive that either. I have proof of all my e-mails and I have proof of sent e-mails on my yahoo account.

The DJ/MC himself, German, was very nice and pleasant, but the fact that the company made him look unprofessional and unprepared was very disappointing. I had to come up to him each time to explain what's next on the timeline. I am in no means a bridezilla because I accommodate everything and yes, I still had fun at my wedding and so did our guests because luckily we are all laid-back people.

But if you want an organized wedding reception or if you are a perfectionist or simply want a good flow of things without you being stressed, do not get DJ Mannia services. I may be a rare case, but I did not know nor expect that DJ Mannia will mess up my wedding reception until they did it to me. So for $1,300 I could've gotten a better DJ and MC service. Not a good surprise.

Also, that youtube video or any youtube videos is definitely not like the DJ they sent. They play off your playlist as if you are playing music off your computer or iPhone. Poor transitioning and mixing. The youtube videos are misleading. You think you'd get a quality dj like the ones you hear at clubs or radio, but it isn't.

I DO NOT RECOMMEND DJ MANNIA unfortunately this was my experience with them. Goodluck brides!
