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

Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

I am getting married at Melia on July 17, 2010. I am excited but I am having trouble reaching the WC... Does anyone have an email that seems to get a prompt response?

 

Thanks!

Hi all

 

I'm getting married at the Melia on November 9, 09. I've had trouble reaching the wedding coordinator too. It seems a bit sporadic - sometimes she replies right away, other times it takes ages! I have been doing most contact through my travel agent lately, because she seems to have more luck - actually I think she just calls!

Jennierin - Hi, I'm getting married at the Melia Caribe in November. I notice you posted some pictures of a new beach gazebo in this thread. I had no idea there was such a gazebo! No one has ever mentioned it to me in my planning process as an option and I've never seen those pictures before!? I can't believe it - I thought the only gazebo was the big garden gazebo that everyone uses. I guess now I have a decision to make! Do you know how many people that gazebo can take? Where exactly is it? Thanks!

Hi erinleigh!

 

The beach gazebo was only built for March 2009. It is now included in the 2009 information package and costs an extra $$$ amount. I am unsure how many people the gazebo can take but it looks like it's a lot smaller than the garden gazebo. I don't know of any brides who have used it before but it is a great option if you wanted a beach wedding but with a little more privacy. I don't know where exactly it is located either...try to get a hold of one of the WC's and they probably would be able to give you a better answer than me! wink.gif

 

I see that you are getting married November 9th! Two weeks after me... when will you be arriving at the Melia? My FI and I are staying until November 6th! How exciting! Congrats girl!

Congrats to you too!! Yeah, I'm interested to learn more, so I'll probably email Laura - is that your coordinator too? She's a bit hard to reach sometimes!

We did originally consider a beach wedding, but I was concerned about privacy, so this might be a nice alternative.

 

I'd love to see some real pictures from the gazebo - maybe over the next few months some brides will take advantage and share their pics!

 

We are actually arriving on November 6th! Funny! I'm not sure yet what time we get in though?

Erin and Jennie,

Our wedding is October 11th :) We are doing the beach, but may change our mind to the beach gazebo after seeing it. It is extra $$ for either. The beach gazebo is new, it wasn't there 2 years ago when we were there for vacation.

We are expecting 40-50 people. We are having a private reception at the amphitheatre. Jennie, I am an RN too and have 19 people booked!! LOL.

My fiance and I are considering this resort for our Feb 2010 wedding. It's such a relief to not have to wait on the resort to email me back pricing info. Does anybody have the 2010 brochurehuh.gif

GAH! Figures. Oh well, I looked at the brochures people had posted from 2009 - I'm going to assume a 10% increase in price for next year. We don't want a private reception so one of the restaurants will do - though I do hate the idea of picking a meal for everybody since you can only have one....

Sorry to ask again, but does anyone whether there are still bars/restaurants open close to the beach in the evening hours? Thanks!

    • 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.
