I found the resort somewhere....looked at Trip advisor, found hardly any negative comments (RARE) and for some reason I just got a feeling that it was right......I don't know. It may change as I get more info but for right now I'm REALLY excited!
OMG - I think we're marrying the same man. He felt that way (the Spring Break thing) about Mexico, and very strongly about Puerto Vallarta in particular. I was like "fine, then YOU find a location." The more he read and the more I learned on this forum and shared with him, the better he felt.

Thanks!
I looked at the links that you posted :) And also got info from Tammy....looked at pictures etc....didn't see alot of pictures of weddings...but I figure, hell, I'm at the beach, how sucky can it be! Hahaha!!! Do you want me to send you the price packages?? Do you have them?? Not for accomodations etc (I found basic ideas for those on the website) but for the wedding packages...

Well, Gran Bahia and Grand Palladium actually got back to me quickly, so that is good! As someone else mentioned, it's good to know that if you choose one of htose, they'll be responsive. Dreams and Riu, I've heard nothing from, and I emailed Dreams 2 weeks ago, and Riu 1 week ago! So, that is making me prefer Gran Bahia and Grand Palladium more anyway.

 

Tammy, I want your Grand Palladium info too! Please send it to me.

 

And I will post what I got from Gran Bahia and Grand Palladium in those threads.

 

BUT, both of those hotels saidthat they do not deal with room rates, you have to go through a tour operator... So, I am waiting for estimates on room rates. I think I'm getting close though!!!!

I found a website that gave general prices....I don't know how accurate they are but it gave me a good idea for Grand Palladium....I also went on a website and did the "book online"....putting in dates and people, then they gave me the rate and I got out of there! Hahahah!!!! It looks like a standard room, for 2 people, for 4 nights was $1056 (when I fake booked!)... that other website is Colonial Palladium: Kantenah Palladium all inclusive resort, Quintana Roo, Mexico

Ah, I think my dates (after christmas) might be just late enough that all the sites I go to to try to get an idea, say that they can't go that far in the future! I need to look at those specific dates though because Tammy told me that they are much more expensive than other times of the year. I need to figure out how much so to see if I can still have it the week between christmas and new year like I really want to!!

 

But that site is good, and I am impressed by how quickly they got back to me since Dreams and Riu have just completely ignored me!!

Okay, now I'm including Iberostar in the mix, and ruling out gran bahia...

 

thoughts thoughts? I'm NEVER going to make a decision...

 

I'm thinking Iberostar or Grand Palladium (as much as I love the riu Palace I think it will be too costly for our guests.... sad.gif

I'm pretty set on Grand Palladium, though I have no idea why....I think its the outdoor Mayan shower....hahahaha!!!!! I felt like I was never gonna make a decision either, so I just stopped looking for now! Maybe a good idea, maybe bad!

I can totally relate to what you guys are going through. We have one resort that we really like, but it is one of the most expensive resorts in Punta Cana and it is going though a management change at this time so there are a lot of controversial posts on Trip Advisor. It alss doesn't help that some people on there have close ties to the old management so I do not know what to believe... AHHH! This stress!!

    • 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
