$46 includes dinner and an open bar

 

I would get the mugs if you can afford them. Everyone used them from our group.

 

Excursions... the public beach in Tulum where i had my TTD done was AMAZING~! and it has a super cute restaurant on the beach and bar. Decent prices. It also has a bunch of activities like wind surfing you can do.

Did anyone have any guests complain about the certificates for the ala carte resturants? We are going to have our wedding dinner at one of the resturants then do a recpection either outside or at the disco depending on the weather. One guest said they do not fell it is all inclusive since they can not go to any resturant any night of the week. The person is only coming for a long weekend so they will loose the 1 certifacte they get for the ala carte sicee it will be used for the wedding dinner. Which makes me feel bad so for those that are upset I would like to buy them a certificate is that possible?

 

I am hoping to have a welcome dinner and rehersal dinner for everyone at the buffet so people will not notice.

Which wedding package are you choosing? The reason I ask was because we did the deluxe religious ceremony and they didn't ask for anything from our guests for the dinner. All of our guests still booked their same amt. of dinners outside of our reception. One thing that you should be aware of is that in general it is hard to book the A la carts...when we showed up on Wed. there were no good times available until like Saturday. That was my only complaint about the resort is the difficulty in booking those.

Just Martha - One excursion that I definitely recommend is snorkelling in Akumal Bay - The Bahia Dive shop offers an excursion for $40 (I think) they take you by boat to the bay, provide your snorkelling equipment, and help you find all the turtles! We went on their excursion, but a couple of days later, we took a collectivo to Akumal Bay (make sure you tell them 'bay' otherwise they might take you to the Akumal pueblo) and rented equipment from the dive shop there (I think it was $15 for the WHOLE day) and snorkelled our hearts out. For lunch, definitley hit up Lucy's Taco's (the shrimp taco is AMAZING).

 

The whole day (9-4) spent in Akumal Bay cost us about $35pp. Cheaper and we got to spend a lot more time snorkelling.

 

Oh, how I wish I could go back there... I absolutely loved Akumal Bay.

They don't actually give you certificates. But you are only allowed 3 (??) per week and 5 (??) per two week stay. And the wedding dinner does count towards one of your guests a la carte meals. We didn't have anyone complain at all (maybe that's because the meal was soooo good).

the Tulum Ruins were where I had the problem. The public Tulum beach was perfect! :)

We are doing the deluxe package as well. Sunsierra did they ask for all of your guests name so they can count it towards their # of dinners?

    • 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
