Frustrated & Stressed..no longer a future DC bride :(

Recommended Posts

AGAIN I need to Vent...Thank you to all of you who are so supportive here!!

I will start by saying that yes I am lucky that my wedding is not until October 2009, and I do have time to plan. BUT it is frustrating to start the planning/researching process all over again.

 

So originally after many long hours of researching, asking advice from other Dreams Cancun brides, and talking to my travel agent..my fiancee Sy and I decided to have our wedding at Dreams in Cancun. We were just about to send our down payment, when other peoples reviews really got to us.

 

I met a girl on this forum by the name of Tiffany who had a bad experience at Dreams. She gave me her point of view, her emails were very helpful...but with an open mind we still kept our plans for our wedding.

 

Sy and I were mainly waiting to hear back from a friend of our family who was going to Dreams Cancun for a vow renewal at the end of June. They had a few unwanted experiences while staying at Dreams Cancun. Now after talking to them, there is no way to convince my FI into sticking with our plans of having our wedding at Dreams.

I'm pissed because I do understand that you will always find someone who has something bad to say,and that there are many couples who have had amazing experiences there. I was completely in love with the gazebo, and the terrace set up...so now I'm bummed!!

I think my FI is just freaked out because for most of our guests it will be their first time in Mexico.

 

Does anyone have any suggestions for AI resorts in the Cancun area that offer a private/semi private reception??We are back to the beginning of our planning process! censored.gif

 

AND AGAIN TO ALL OF THE DREAMS CANCUN BRIDES: I really appreciate each and every one of you !! You have taken the time out to send me personal emails, pictures, posts etc..you are all amazing and I wish you nothing but the best in your planning and your wedding day!

I don't have any help for the Cancun area, but I'm sure someone will have a perfect place for you. What did your friends say?

Ok I am not in any way cutting down the Dreams Cancun resort, and do not want to upset or worry anyone. First off my friends went to Dreams cancun to celebrate a wedding anniversary. They were very impressed with the staff and felt that they are what really make the resort. The first two nights of their stay they did not have air conditioning. The hotel was very good about sending a maintenance person to fix their ac, but each night when they arrived back at their room the ac was not working. The hotel offered them to change rooms on their 3rd morning there. They said their next room was much better, their only complaint was a bad smell that came from the sink, so they just closed the bathroom door and said that was not a big deal. Another guest who was part of their group had problems with sewage in the bathroom in the middle of the night. The hotel sent someone to clean their bathroom, and temporarily fix the problem until morning. I guess the smell was really bad. They also switched rooms. Another comment our friends made was that the couple celebrating the anniversary were upset with paying the per person amount for food. They discovered some of the same food served at their reception on the menus at the restaurants on other nights of their stay. I know these things are not HUGE, but my fiance will not change his mind. He is just afraid of the risk if something like this would happen to one of our guests. My friends did comment on the gazebo area being gorgeous! They also spoke with a couple there who had their wedding at DC the week prior, and they were beyond satisfied with the reception and ceremony. I don't want to worry anyone with these details, I just have a very picky fiancee who's mind is made up!!

I totally know what you are going through I have been minutes to giving in my deposit and then things changed/hidden fees. I have had a wedding planned and multiple resorts and islands with problem after problem. I loved the Paradisus in Cancun and wish I could have had it there. I finally chose Rosehall in Jamaica I actually just returned with all the problems I needed to go and make sure there was no small writing I missed like the other places. If you are willing to change islands feel free to contact me.

    • 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
