Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!


I've been reading through your posts for a few weeks now and decided to join myself. Here are my details:


1: Kristina Foszpanczyk

2: Wedding will be in November 2009

3: Wedding will be in Riviera Maya


I've been trying to locate a resort with the following characteristics:



*Intimate, bungalow or hacienda style, not a mega complex

*A place with lots of lush flowers and plants, on the beach

*Not too pricey - I'd like to keep the cost between $800 - $1300 per person for a 7 night stay

*If it's a villa type place, I do not want to have to rent the entire complex, as that can get pricey, I'd like the guests to be able to rent the rooms for the days and length of stay that suits them. SOme might only be able to stay for 3-4 days.


I have found Las Villas Akumal yesterday and it looks promising. The only thing is that it is not all-inclusive, but breakfast is included. Has anyone else stayed there or known of a wedding there?


I look forward to discussions with other brides!

    • 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.
