A newbie still deciding on location (thinking DR)

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!


My name is Ashli and I am going to marry Matt on March 27, 2009 (hopefully - that date is not set in stone yet). We are in the beginning stages of planning and actually nothing is set in stone yet.


We are thinking about Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. Right now, Paradisus Punta Cana is our first choice and Majestic Colonial is also an option. The only problem - flights coming home are 95% red eyes. Does anyone know something I don't about that?


Also, we are open to other suggestions. We definately want an AI, in the Caribbean, and prefer places with Adult Only sections (there are no kids coming to the wedding). We are on a budget - no more than $3000 per couple for 4 nights.


Looking forward to all the great advice. Thanks!

There is a ton of info on locations to be found here!


In the Caribbean I know that the Couples and Sandals hotels are all AI and Adult Only. You can also look at some of the SuperClubs properties. They have a variety of properties and some of the cheaper ones do allow children, but only those over 14 or 16.


You might want to contact a travel agent (ther are several on the boards) for more recommendations.

    • 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.
