Just got back from Cabo-Site Visit!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone I just got back from Cabo yesterday and I had a blast. I took care of all my wedding plans and had fun. If anyone is planning a site visit do it now because all the whales are down there and it is so amazing. Dreams is the only hotel where I got to see the whales jumping throughout the ocean-it was great!

On to the wedding-I met with Yesica she is great. I feel assured by her-she seems like she has got everything in control. We are so novice to this wedding stuff. As first timers we thought the site visit would take all day in actuality it took about 30 mins... We had the day planned out Yesica 9am-1am, DJ at Dreams Lobby at 1:30pm and Photographer at 2:00pm? So we told Yesica that we had planned to spend the day their (yikes) doing all our business-she looked at us like we should have thought about that better. But, in the end it ended being a fantastic day. Yesica treated us to lunch and we got to lay out on the beach and watch all the whales go by till 1:30pm. DJ Richardo is a good man. He came very professional and funny. He even had some great ideas for us! Then we waited till 3:00, 4:00 and 5:00 for Tomas Barron the photographer. We got our lines crossed and he thought we planned it for another day? We both apologized and moved on... But, due to waiting for Tomas we had a grand chance to watch another wedding! This was the best! I was able to see the brides hair and make-up from the salon (hum-I am not sure if she was happy-but of course she looked beautiful). We saw the set-up, decor, trio, and cocktail hour and it was great. I left feeling that everything is going to be fine! Brides we are good hands...

The next day on to another adventure. We went to the Divine Divas house for cake tasting-that was amazing! Her cakes are to die for and she is sooooo sweet! We felt at home and comfortable there! We told her about our stay blah, blah, blah... We did mention we were unsure of Tomas Barron and she offered to call her dad who was a photographer. Jen was so nice called her dad right away and sure enough he had our wedding date open and agreed to meet us that day. Peter Hatton is a great guy. He is funny and sincere, we ended up talking to them both for a couple of hours. It was nice to walk away knowing we had a great cake, and photographer for our wedding.

As we waited for the local bus to get to the hotel we discussed everything. Yesica is a great coordinator, DJ Richardo Patino great, Jen Hatton great cake, and Peter Hatton great photographer. Our day is not stressful for me anymore and that was a great feeling leaving. I am still up on the fence about using the Dreams Salon? But that is a personal choice I have to make... I hope this helps

Thank you so much for sharing your experience. I've been trying to decide to use Jen Hatton for cake as well. I emailed her about a week ago, but I still haven't heard back. What sort of prices does she have? Would you say that they are reasonable?

Well I think that Jen is fair price- her cakes are great. I think it is like $5 per person plus tax and she also brings that cake to you and sets it all up!

Jennifer's cakes are great! We had carrot with cream cheese frosting. We made sure to bring boxes for everyone and I heard raves about our guests midnight snacks the next day. :) She's very nice too!

 

You're in good hands with DJ Ritchie too. He really cares about how good of a job he does.

    • 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
