    It make take some time to get a reply as this is a busy time for weddings. You're best bet is to go to a travel agent and book through them!

        Their fees are normally "hidden" in the rate you pay. So it depends. Sometimes it's cheaper to book a vacation package yourselves online...not sure where you live but Travelocity if you're in the US, itravel2000.com and selloffvacations.com if you're in Canada, etc. often have the best rates. However, if you want to get a group rate (a standard rate for you and all your guests) your best bet is a travel agent...we did this and the online rates couldn't compare to what our TA got us.

          Travel agent got us a much better group rate plus the bonus free nights for booking "x" amount of rooms.  I would suggest starting with a travel agent and emailing the wedding coordinator at the resort immediately to book a date.  I am sure that June is probably pretty full.  You can submit a request also at

            I have another question.  I am leaving in a week and I'm starting to think about the menu.  I know lots of brides have said that the beef medallions are excellent.  I am concerns about how it's cooked, a lot of people have different taste, some like their meat red and some others like myself like their meat well done.  Does servers come and ask how everyone wants it cook or do they only do it one way for everyone.

              From what I have read from past brides is that they serve it one way and don't ask guests how they would like it.  I believe if you do not specify, it is cooked well done.  I am not 100% certain, but this is what I believe has been mentioned from brides.

                Yes, I believe others have said that they cook it all the same way for everyone so there's no choice between rare, medium, well-done on an individual basis. However, I'd actually be kinda surprised if it was well-done. I find from all the times I've been to resorts in the Dominican that they lean more towards undercooking red meat than over cooking it...I find their hamburgers are even rare (ick!). Actually, the best steak I ever ate in my entire life was in the Dominican...it was the most perfect medium-rare!! Lol

                  Well if is is cook the same way for everyone, that means some people will not like it.  I think someone who like their steak rare could always eat their well-done but it doesnt always work the other way around.  I couldn't eat steak that has a little bit of red or blood, it really gross me out.  I guess that if I go with the chicken, there is only one way to cook it.  Does anyone know if the chicken Tetrazzini had good review??
