ROYAL PLAYA DEL CARMEN BRIDES: were kids allowed for the day? ...and other questions

Recommended Posts

Hi ChicagoBride2011

 

What is your opinion of the weddings on the beach? I see you said that there can be up to 3 weddings at 1 time. I'm having about 50 guests at the wedding and am wondering if there is another wedding going on if it would be close to ours. Any chance you took pictures of the beach areas?

 

As of now we are have the wedding and reception on the beach because my FI really wants the beach wedding and the beach reception. I'm not 100% in love with everything being on the beach. My WC told me that the 2 things will be on 2 different parts of the beach. In your opinion what was your fav location on the site?

 

Thanks!!

I think there are a lot of different things that you can do and I probably will change my mind again lol but that is the plan for now
Gotcha...food for thought...Thanks!

I'm personally not doing the ceremony on the beach for privacy reasons. The one ceremony that we saw on the beach was in the middle of people, the ceremony was set-up betwen lounge chairs/cabanas. People were on lounge chairs 5 feet away from the cermony, strangers were gathered around the ceremony as if they were apart of the wedding etc. Granted the later the cermony the less crowded the beach will be, the ceremony that I'm referring to was a 4 pm ceremony and the beach was still very crowded.

The 3 sections are pretty close. The one section is behind Pelicanos, the other is the middle (where the main walk way is to the beach) and the other is behind the Gazebo. My only concern with that is the music of other receptions is going to interfere with mine. Also the section of beach that you use also varies on the number of people you have having. We were told that Pelicanos was the biggest and that's what we chose, my fiance liked that location the best as well.

By having your reception on the beach you are taking a chance of having up to 2 other wedding receptions on the beach with you. Which we were pretty shocked about, so I'm glad we saw it and asked about it.smile27.gif

We are choosing to do the ceremony at the gazebo and reception on the beach ( there is no-one on the beach at night therefore it it pretty private), and keeping our fingers crossed that their won't be any other reception on the beach at the same time as ours.

Let me know if you have any other questions! I'd be happy to help. :)

Don't be sorry :) well I was told that I had the choice and it would not cost extra. However you know with the Royal, they might to that for me but it may be a different story now lol

By the way I had the exact same experience on my site visit as yours.

One thing I did not think about is the constant weddings going on. Was that annoying in any way? Does it affect anything for the guests?

January is really expensive compared to other months so some ties rates can really vary depending on the month your looking into.
I am looking at May 2012 but since I won't know those rates for a while May in general

I thought they only had one wedding/reception at a time?

Jesmcan,

 

I forgot to tell you...I asked my WC to send me a picture of the hurricane glass and she said they don't have them...only the candles are offered.

    • 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
