@@LaurenR see my attachment for Azul Sensatori, however I am NOT using their services.

 

@@Janjin I would block the minimum..10 rooms and add as you see people going..I started like that and I increased it.

@@IvanLuckiePhotography OMG!! I heard something similar :(

Wow I wish my resort's spa was that cheap!!!

@@Janjin.

My biggest stressor has been the room situation. We initially booked 21 rooms. We booked when there was a promotion and at 21 + rooms, you would qualify for an extra cocktail hr. People were really slow to book and some showed no interest at all. All of a sudden we have 40 rooms booked! I would do 21 and then keep adding. Its easier to release rooms by your cut off date.

Thanks ladies.  So per my travel agent there is $100 deposit for each room, which is fine - did you guys have the same.  But when you guys increased did you have to pay the $100 per room for the additional rooms?  I just emailed my agent but figured I'd ask here too.  My friend who got married at the Hard Rock in DR this summer said she didn't have to do the deposit for the additional rooms.  Just trying to gauge what my initial payout is going to look like.

 

How many guests are guys inviting/expecting?  We currently have about 105 on the guest list including kids but are expecting about 50 - 60.


@@linaco80 - my agent told me the same thing.  So I want to be careful how many rooms I block.

I had $200 per room (deposit) we invited 95 and expected 40-50

We started with 10 rooms and we are on 18 now. The deposit you make will end up added to your bill once the rooms get filled or you drop them ... Ask what's the % of rooms you are allowed to drop. We just started small because you never know... People say "yes" and life turns into different situations

Also this hotel is goes by rooms booked. Other resorts like Palace Resorts / hard rock go by rooms per night which is much better, and that's how they give you perks

Mine was $100 per room to create the room block. But guests were $100 per person to book their rooms. My TA is giving guests the option of doing monthly payments as well. I did not have to shell out money for rhe additional rooms. And i am not sure how, but i qualified for another promotion and got the honwymoon suite for $2300 total for 7 days..

Can anyone tell me the options for the reception space. I see most people get take the space by the pool area. Which is beautiful. I'm still trying to decide between Sensatori and Beach my dilemma I have a toddler and he loves the water. I'm terrified he will run into the pool. All it takes is one second. Maybe I'm overthinking. But thinking of others with kids too.

I know the options at beach curious of the other options at sensatori. Thanks for the help

There are several locations... All are available to look at at the official Sensatori thread.

 

Plaza Zavas (the poolside location you mention), the beach or the banquet room off the main lobby are the usual locations for receptions. Depending on the size of your group you can also use restaurant locations.

Just wondering if anyone is or has used a silk flower bouquet ? I know with the always and forever package your bridal bouquet is included , but I really want peonies and that bouquet is 300 dollars ! So I started looking on etsy and you can buy a peony bouquet of silk flowers for 150 dollars, than at least they'll last forever ... but is that tacky ?? Any thoughts on this ??

Lots of brides being down silk or real touch bouquets! I think it's a great idea... And in the Mexican heat your flowers will look pretty all day!

    • 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.
