VancityBride, The gazebo is really pretty but there are people around.  Not that noticable though, due to the fabric that they hang off the end of the gazebo typically.  For the wedding I photographed, although it was in the sand next to the gazebo, there were probably 5-10 people that had stopped to watch.  Thankfully they were respectful and stayed back, so they were only in the photographs I took when I intentionally took pictures of them :)


The walking distance from the beach to the lobby is definitely a walk.  It's not TERRIBLE, especially as the bride and groom, as I assume you'll be taking pictures.  At least that's what we did.  We took pictures during our walk to not only get awesome shots, but then you don't even notice how long of a walk it is.  Without photos, I'd say a five minute walk if you're going casually.

          I have sent a few e-mails to this resort asking for photos of their set-ups, flower arrangements and venues, but all they send me back is a booking form. I have explained that i dont want to book untill i have seen what the resort has to offer but they just send me another booking form. Is anyone able to help with any pictures.

            So im trying to finalize some of our wedding plans and its getting dificult. I found a photobooth our there for a good price, and I message elizabeth asking if it was ok if it came on the resort property and she told me that it would be $100 per person!! Im hoping she is referring to a day pass for the phtobooth assistant and not $100 per person for all my guests. That confused me. Then I asked if there would be champagne included after the ceremony and she said that its $10/per person. Im starting to see that they charge you for everything. I was at a wedding the Domincan last year and they were so good about things like that. Its making me frusterated.  How is your planning coming along. have you had any issues with this kind of stuff??

                its my understanding that you pay $12 per person for the edding reception and that includes the drinks - have you been onto the official web apge

                  yes we ate there last time we vacationed and it was good, the gazebo at the far end is the best I agree with you. we saw numerous weddings as well and asked many questions when we were there send me your pics
