Ever been to The Hilton?

Recommended Posts

I have to decide between two outdoor locations for my reception. There is the Sun Fun Hut that over looks the ocean or the Dolphin Terrace which is next to a pool.

 

Which? The ocean view sounds lovely, but the picture of the Dolphin Terrace is gorgeous.

Has anyone seen them both?

We hung out at the Hilton one day of our honeymoon and I thought I remembered seeing the Whale Watching Terrace which is like one level below the pool and closer to the beach. Is that an option? I wasn't totally paying attention so I could be wrong though....but I think I saw them setting up an event there and I remember thinking it was perfect for a wedding.

I have seen both - both have an ocean view but the terrace sits higher and close to the hotel structure - the other is further away from thev builings of the hotel. How many people are you having? Dinner and dancing? Both are great but I need more info to give you an honnest opinionsmile78.gif

I agree with Sarah both locations are great. We are having our cocktail hour at the SunFun Hut and moving onto the Dolphin Terrace for our reception. I believe from the map both locations are a bit more private because they are further from the main building.

I have been to Hilton too! My ceremony and cocktail reception are on the sand and the reception at the Sun Fun Hut (We are having 40-50 guests). They are both nice but it depends on what you are looking for. The Sun Fun Hut is off to the side away from the main pool. There is a pool by the Sun Fun Hut but it is closed when weddings are in progress...at least the two weddings I witnessed while I was there...they closed down the area.

 

The wedding reception I did see at the Dolphin Terrace is right below the main pool. They do not close the main pool and there are alot of lookie-lu's hanging over the edge of the infinity pool. The Dolphin Terrace is the middle of the hotel grounds..kind of.

 

They both have great views.

We are doing our cocktail reception at the Dolphin Terrace and then our reception at the Sun Fun Hut. The Whale Watching Terrace is really nice. When the pool is closed (during your reception) it will be more private. There was a wedding when we visited there and it was nice.

I've stayed there a few times (love it there, btw - you're going to be so happy with your choice).

 

Please make sure that they verify that the location that you are selecting will be closed to the public. There is an area that is just below the pool. It's really pretty and i loved the idea of the sound of the water coming over the pool. However, they wouldn't close the area off and it's adjacent to the mail beach access path so people would be walking by and people would still be in the pool right next to where you and your guests.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
