Also- Are any of you trying to organize any excursions for your guests while there? If so, what companies are you using. I am thinking about doing a sunset sail or snorkel. Thanks

My good friend was married here in June with 65 guests. They loved it! I was unable to attend only bc my best friend's wedding was the week prior in Puerto Rico. However, I have seen pics and talked to friends and family who attended and did not hear one negative. I am actually planning to book 4-5 nights here for our honeymoon after our wedding in Akumal. One note. my friend did mention that everything was a charge... tables, dj, etc.. everything is a fee, just like if you were doing the wedding yourself through multiple vendors. Not sure if other resorts have all inclusive wedding packages. I know they were pleased overall with how everything turned out. Also, they were able to negotiate on the room rates for guests and got a great deal. I recommend negotiating if you are there during a slower season. Good luck! And let me know if any of you travel there since I'm planning our honeymoon stay there. :o) Thanks! Nicole

This place is really a beautiful boutique hotel. Not surprisingly, the staff is superb and the location speaks for itself.

We were recently shooting a small wedding (5 guests) really 7 because Sol and I were invited for dinner with the Bride and Groom, her mom and dad, and her little baby girl. She is a BDWF bride and actually recently posted her review here on this thread.

Just for research sake... Here are a few more events there.. Visualization when virtually planning takes you a LONG LONG way...

Sol | Teresa and Joe

One of the PRIMARY benefits Ceiba has is its beautiful pier location. This is the perfect spot for dusk weddings, private dinners and small receptions. I'm almost sold that one visit to this spot and you will FALL IN LOVE...like we did... wow, its amazing.

Here are a few images... First two are the pier location... LOVE the turquoise waters that the RM is known for!

With such a tiny wedding, we highly recommend the end of the pier (no under the palapa because lighting is difficult underneath when its bright outside... also why we recommend dusk light.

Thanks for the nice comment about our photos :)

Bummer it was tough to plan there. I wonder what they could have done differently or if you have any suggestions (in case they are listening) as to how they can woo more guests. We really love it there.

I needed to add, not only does Ceiba have a killer dock location, but there beach is also a great spot for weddings as well and they have multiple reception locations that are indoors / outdoors as well. Hopefully, we will get to spend a few nights there soon enough so we can work on our commercial folio of images of the location... As they say: coming soon eh?

Saludos,
mateo

Hello Lucy,

I had my wedding at ceiba del mar and i did my own make up and hair. But you would ask Denise she will refer you to some one who do great job on the make up & hair. Denise is very helpful and the hotel service is really really good. you will also get great great photo out of this location, very romantic, peaceful, it is a germ.

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
