We go back to LA often and I LOVE carne asada too! lol
LOL the carne asada pic is for an activist group out here trying to save taco trucks, LC Rachel hipped me to it...they are trying to take them away!

Anyway, I agree with LC Rachel about the Barcelo in Mismaloya. One of my BMs stayed there, I have pics if you're interested. It's on a beautiful bay/cove.

Yes, I've spoken with Selma. She's arranged a group rate for us if we decide to stay there. It seems really nice but I'm worried about the cost for our guests. It's kinda pricey and ideally I don't want to exclude anyone because I picked a resort that was too expensive... and I'd like to stay in the same resort as everyone else.

Yes , I feel the same but our guests will be spread around the marina hotels so at least my family and some friends will stay with us..

Hi,

 

My thoughts...

 

I have just decided on the Buenaventura hotel for our stay and wedding day. I loved the look of Velas and have visited it (not stayed) and it is beautiful but I couldn't get a response out of them. I sent several emails and even left a phone msg but with no luck. This didn't sit well with me; couldn't imagine the next few months of planning my wedding with their apparent lack of interest. And...its pretty pricey! Dreams came in a close 2nd but I chose Buena as its much smaller and I wanted a more intimate resort.

 

Hope this helps :)

    • 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!!
