Melia Caribe Tropical: Q&A Related specifically to this hotel

Recommended Posts

I am pretty sure music is extra- There is a choice of a DJ, just Ipod set up, orchestra, pianoist, or the musical trio. I have the romance Guide for 2009 that lists the prices for every extra. PM me with your email if you like and I can send it to you!

Thanks!
I don't know about music, but I did just get their detailed wedding package packet and F&B packet this morning. Maybe that will have more info for you ... it's attached.

FI and I are very seriously looking at the Melia Caribe Tropical for our wedding in December 2010 - yay, I feel like we're getting close to a decision! smile29.gif

 

I noticed that there isn't a specific Melia planning thread on here so I thought maybe I would start one. I know there are some BDW brides getting married there this month so hopefully they can share some of their wisdom with those of us considering this resort!

 

I'll get started with my first question: has anyone seen the new beach gazebo they are building? I'm so excited to know that they are building one. The main wedding gazebo they have looks gorgeous but I really want to get married with the ocean as my backdrop. I would love pics of the new gazebo and to know how many ppl it will accomodate!

 

Thanks!

Angela

We're getting married there in July. The wedding packet mentions they will have one and gives the price, but no photos. We're getting married on the beach, but I didn't pick the gazebo. I'll be happy to ask my WC if she has any pics she can send me ... I'll let you know!

Thanks Lori! That would be great.

 

Do you happen to know who I should contact at least initially at the Melia to start speaking with a WC? I sent a general email to the hotel awhile back asking if they could forward my info to a WC or if they could send me the contact info for their WC and I haven't heard anything back from anyone!

Hey there....we are getting married at the Melia Caribe in October. I was torn between the beach or the new beach gazebo. We finally decided that we would stick with having the ceremony on the beach! I did get a couple of pics with the wedding information that they sent so here they are!

Also, I've sent you a PM with some information to get in contact with the wedding coordinators there. Have fun planning and if you do go with the Melia...you won't be disappointed! I've heard nothing but great things from past brides and the WC's have been pretty great so far!

I've heard nothing but good things about Melia Caribe. Unfortunately, their package didn't have everything we wanted so we opted for excellence, but Melia was one of our top choices. Best of luck!

Thanks Jenny for the pics of the gazebo and for the PM. You're so sweet to help! I'll be contacting a WC pronto to get the ball rolling, and I'm glad to hear that your experience has been good in that respect so far =)

 

I see you've got 19 booked so far - how many total are you expecting? Just curious what you are doing for dinner/reception? I think that is the aspect I'm most concerned about, and don't want to end up spending too much money... I know it can really add up with all kinds of extra per guest fees. I roughly estimate I'll have about 40 attending plus a handful of kids.

I still haven't gotten any pics from my WC yet, but it looks like you got what you needed anyway. Jenny is right - they have been fantastic. My FI and I are doing a very small elopement wedding, but they've been terrific.

 

Good luck!!

Hi all,

 

I started the following Melia Caribe Tropical thread when I started planning:

 

http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t17334

 

There are a few things in there. Been so busy with my wedding planning I haven't gotten a chance to update recently. Also, there is a huge thread on Debbie's Dominican forum for Melia brides (Debbie's Dominican Travel Forums - Melia Caribe wedding!!).

 

Hope this helps.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
