Anyone married at Occidental...

Recommended Posts

That is a great deal!!! I was looking into the Occidental as well and have contacted Laura but am waiting a response. I would appreciate any information on costs that you were given as well.

 

Thanks,Reena

Can anybody post pictures or a review of their wedding here? My fiance and I are also considering the Occidental. And look at it this way, if you're picking a resort in the minority on this forum - you probably won't have to share your wedding day with a billion other brides which means more attention from the WC! NEVER a bad thing right?!

I would love to see any pictures that people have. My TA has quoted prices for several places and this resort seemed reasonable for guests but I'm not finding anything on it. Any help would be great!!

I have recently returned from the Occidental resort for our wedding. It was amazing! They only have 1 wedding per day. I couldnt have asked for anything more. The WC was great...the flowers, cake , decorations...everything was perfect. I have a shutterfly account with most of our guests pictures as well that you can visit if you'd like "http://puntacanamay20091.shutterfly.com/" password: wedding.

 

We went with the private reception in the beach house, it was everything we could imagine. If you have a little extra in your budget, I highly recommend doing the private reception. We are very happy that we spent the extra money on it.

 

Also, my aunt brought down a laptop and a memory card reader (it reads all different types of memory cards from all digital cameras), the last day she grabbed most of our guests memory cards and was able to download everyones photos and put them all onto a memory stick and cd for us. I highly recommend this. It saved us a lot of time and energy trying to get everyones photos once we returned.

 

Feel free to PM me with any questions! Good Luck with the planning

Thanks for the pictures, BEAUTIFUL! I agree the WC is very slow. For any new brides that plan to marry after 7.30.2010. I will be sure to post my review. I have started a blog and will update with any information I get.

    • 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.
