That's a good question, lol. We were so busy that week, the only time we got to see the beach was during the TTD with Elizabeth, and that was about 15 minutes. I have no other comparison, so from what I can tell, it's pretty nice. Small but nice, nevertheless.

Thanks for posting your review. Congratulations!!!
Athough we didn't do an actual practice rehearsal, I got the group together for a 'welcome dinner' and then afterwards, walked them to the gazebo site and do a 'walk-through' of the ceremony and reception. That helped out alot, and guests got to know each other better.

We don't want to plan their entire vacation for them but want to do something as a group to show our appreciation for their attendance.
Most of the guests except for two seniors went on the guided grayline tour. It was OK, not my kind of travel (I'm into adventerous tours), but I had to consider the age and physical range of my guests.

Most of the guests except for two seniors went on the guided grayline tour. It was excellent, very historically interesting. The long drive to and back was pretty exhausting, and once there, there was alot of tourists and hawkers. I chose this trip considering the wide age and physical range of my guests.

If you see duplication/triplication of posts--Sorry! I don't know what happened.

 

THANK YOU, ladies for the nice compliments. I love my wedding and I am so glad it's over. Time to move on to the next challenge...planning a family. :-)

Great Review!! I am getting married there in October and now you have made me a little more relaxed! Was the Chilie Restruant outside by the pool? And for your iPod- did you hook it up to their speakers?

    • 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!!
