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

Recommended Posts

Princess - As far as I know, the bars/restaurants are closed during the evening hours. I am assuming this as we are having a private reception at the Grill Restaurant which is by the beach and was told that it closes at 5pm.

 

DarcyJade - LOL! It's too funny that we have so much in common! I guess we'll just miss each other sad.gif in October!

The bars and restaurants near the beach all close at night. We looked into that because we were considering having a private reception at the turrey and were wondering if there would be bars close by that we could get drinks at - rather than paying the crazy per hour/per person bar prices. We ended up booking our reception on the La Barcaza Yacht instead :)

Hmmm... that's exactly why I was asking and exactly what I was worried about! I don't want to have to pay for a private bar ALL night, plus even every other night it's kinda silly that there's nowhere to go for snacks/drinks that's close for people in rooms near the beach sad.gif

Your right, all the "night life" is at one end of the resort. We stayed there in 06 and our room ended up being closer to the lobby end rather than the beach end. We liked that because we were closer to our room after dinner/drinks, etc. During the day when we'd head to the pools/beach we'd be there all day, so didnt really need to be close to our rooms.

 

I agree, it really sucks having to pay for a bar when you are on an all inclusive resort and every other time everything is at your disposal for free. That's why we decided to have our reception off the resort. Just made more sense to us.

 

Good luck with your planning! There's lots to think about!

Our first pic is the Melia Caribe in Punta Cana. I received all the wedding package information from my wedding planner, but I was wondering if someone knows what are the extras that are not listed in there. I was looking at the Fairy Tale package and I wanted the wedding ceremony on the beach. I was wondering if the have chair covers and sash? If I can bring my rose petals to have on the sand? Can I bring them some paper lanterns for them to hang? Is the private dinner reception on the beach?

 

That's a lot of questions, but I want everything to be perfect, so :-)

Something to consder, We are most likely doing the "basic" bar, and buying some extra bottles of alcohol. They charge $8 corkage fee per bottle, but it still comes out wayyyy less!

i stayed at melia memorial day week last year. i wrote a review on trip advisor. we loved every moment there!! we stayed in royal service and i wouldnt havent any other way, the gabi restaurant in RS was one of the best!! i also like the RS beach since it had a bar and they waited on you while you layed out!! they really made us feel like royalty!!! if you like big resorts then you will love it! we chose a smaller resort laromana for our wedding since we wanted everything close by and not so big.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
