Hola Verenicce

 

Last September I spent a week in the Playa del Sol Grand on my site visit. Playa Del Sol Grand is not a resort but is a really nice hotel, the gardens are so pretty! Thereâ€s a river with tons multi-color fishes and even turtles... The food at the Italian restaurant is really really good.. We tried different dishes to share and was plenty, tasteful and very well presented.

 

The main restaurant where the buffet for breakfast is not as good as the Italian, but is not bad at all... All the rooms have kitchenettes and are pretty comfy, you have fridge, stove, microwave so you can go and buy groceries in Puerto Vallarta, at Wal-Mart which I recommend, because the grocery store at NV is kind of expensive compared of what you can get from PV. The hotel is like 25 min on cab from the PV Downtown, so the cab rates are not going to be cheap.

 

There is also the option for the all inclusive which I think was like $55 per person/ day. We didnâ€t use that option and we were at the beach with our coolers filled up with sodas, beer, water and snacks… so is really a kind of relax atmosphere.

 

For a wedding the PDSG is a good option, the sunset view from the infinity pool is AMAZING!!! The sand on the beach is really soft and nice and the sea is really nice to swim. The infinity pool is really nice and the pool area surrounded by palm trees and lighted in the nights could be a really nice option for your reception and the beach for the ceremony will work perfect for a small wedding. I donâ€t know if they will serve food from the Italian rest for a wedding, but if you can get it that will be great.

Thank you so much Edna for all this great information about PSG. It's really helping us make a decision on our location. now we're only down to 2 places PSG and Mayan Palace. I know you're getting married at the Mayan Palace just like other girls here at the forum, I've never been to the location myself but I've seen many pics of the wedding there and it also looks like an amazing location so we really need to make a decision soon so we can reserve our date. Do you think the palace would be the perfect location for a wedding of 50 guest?

 

Gracias Edna

Hola Verenicce,

Yes I am getting married at the Mayan Palace in PV.. and is a lovely place. I have posted a lot of pics as well as other brides around. I think the size of the wedding is not a problem there, Christine did a wonderful table setup and looked so beautiful. Have you seen her pics?

Hola Verenicce,

I love Mayan Palace , the rocks on the side made the beach private and the lounge furniture is very nice, the decor at the lobby is beautiful, I havent tasted the food yet but my WC said it was one of the best from PV.

Don't worry you have time to start and finish everything perfectly, I feel the same.. I am so happy of being part of this wonderful forum!!!

Let us know how we can help .. and thank you for offering it too!!!

Saludos!!!!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
