Hey all, I just recieved an email today that informed me Mara is no longer working at the resort, and a women named Elizabeth was taking over her clients.  Has anyone else heard of this?  She says my date is confirmed, but I have to resend my form with all my choices.  :(  This resort seems to have problems with it's WC's...........hmm.

I was at the Grand Sunset Princess from April 2 - 9 both sides are the same and both sides have access to all the pools, restaurants & bars.  The only thing that is different is which lobby you check into too.  The resort is beautiful and I'm sure you'll  have a fantastic time.  Although I didn't get to see any of the weddings taking place I saw numerous brides throughout the week.

Hey ladies,The

 

I wouldn't worry about the wedding coordinators. I was talking to a local and he stated that the staff usually turns over every 3 months due to contractual obligations. This is not uncommon. No worries. As I was planning I saw 3 wedding coordinators go through the grand sunset/riviera hotel.

 

The resort is all wrapped into one. I thought we were suppose to stay on the GSP side but most of our guests ended up being on the Riviera side. Both are equally as beautiful and you do have access to everything on either side.

 

Hope this helps.

VancityBride - I read a lot of reviews on tripadvisor.com where people complained about the walk from the lobby to the beach, and made a point to do this walk to see if it really was a big deal. I thought the walk was really nice and it only took 10mins at the most. There are carts/trolley things that you can get on for the times you don't feel like walking, but sometimes I found the wait was longer than the walk. I guess it depends on what you feel like doing... I didn't mind the walk and didn't find it too long :)

I REALLY want to go back!!!! It was perfect :)

Great news for those that were interested in the Gazebo.  My TA just received confirmation that the Riviera Gazebo opened two weeks ago.  The resort now wants confirmation on which gazebo I prefer - Riviera vs Chill Out.  I assume this means that they are keeping both!

Hi everyone!  Here's the link to our Professional Pics... I'm having a bit of trouble writing a review on here but feel free to PM me if you have any questions.  Especially if you and your guests are staying on the Riviera side.  We had quite a few issues with our 'Platinum Rooms'.  We were down there from April 1st - 10th.

 

The wedding itself was absolutely beautiful and Alejandra, our WC, was awesome!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
