Advice on Villas!

Recommended Posts

We are renting Villa Sol y Luna also for my daughters wedding in Jan 2010 - check out their website, we felt the price was reasonable and the location perfect.

My daughters wedding is a week away and we will be heading down to Villa Sol y Luna before you know it. We are very excited and I cannot wait to get away from the snow!

Probably a little late at this point, but just thought I'd throw another suggestion in... I'm getting married at Casa Romero in Akumal (on Yul-Ku lagoon) on July 3. We're renting the house (and actually the entire property which includes another villa - fits 14 people - and 4 townhomes). We'll have a pretty decent size property to ourselves. Our wedding planner is Jen at Turtle Bay Cafe - so far she has been AWESOME. She is originally from the states and relocated to the area, she's found great deals on most of the things I want (plus she owns the majority of items you'd need to rent - tables, barware, etc). Good luck planning!

Hi! There is a lovely villa in the Dominican Republic--Villa Flor De Cabrera. It has 10 bedrooms and a separate casita for the bride and groom. It can fit 24 people, has a pool, on the beach, has A/C, onsite wedding planner, chef, concierge, host, and laundress. The cost is dependent upon the time of year but we are paying $17,500 for the week. That's $729 per person for the week. The food plans are separate but you can pick anything you want--all the way up to all-inclusive. We're getting married in July 2011. So excited!

I'd love it if you could share a link or more info on this house, it sounds amazing! We are still in the initial planning stages for late 2011.

Megs123: How many guests did you have? Did you marry on the sand then use the house and grounds for the reception--this is the exact scenario I'm looking for. But I need help figuring out vendors, wedding planner, etc that won't rip me off and can help me achieve my specific vision (chic, yet casual with more of a cocktail party vibe than a traditional sit-down wedding vibe). Any leads greatly appreciated. Oh, and I am expecting approx 80 guests (looking into buying out a boutique hotel in PDC). If you could share your total budget, that would be soooo incredibly helpful. I am trying to stretch a budget of 15K as far as possible. Would looove to see pics from your wedding as well.

 

Many thanks!

We stayed at the Paradisus, and then we rented Sol Y Luna for the day/night of the wedding. I can't say enough good things about the villa. It was absolutely perfect, and stress free. We bought all the food/alcohol from costco the night before and dropped it off to cut down the costs. The villa organized for a chef and 2 staff ($300 total for the staff) who took care of everything. The villa was beautiful, the food was great, the staff required very little direction, the beach was great, pool was great and a fair size, just perfection. Just message me if you have any questions! I have tons of pics but I can't seem to attach them!
