Has anyone had a wedding at Barcelo Punta Cana?

Recommended Posts

I am planning a wedding for April-May 2009 for about 40 people and have yet to select a resort. It seems like the most affordable one in PC is Barcelo Premium Punta Cana. It looks beautiful in photos but the reviews are mixed and the food reviews are pretty negative. I want to pick a resort that most people will be able to attend and enjoy but won't be over the top in package price for our guests.

Anyone heard of this resort? or have any suggestions?

I don't want to spend over $8,000, including our flight and hotel stay.

i'm not sure how far up my head is in the clouds!

hello well I just wanted to drop you a quick line. I have been to Punta Cana twice. The frist time it was at the Grand Oasis and it was nice. I dont know about wedding nice but great for a vacation. The second time my FI and I stayed at Barcelo Dominican Beach resort. ohhh it was awful! I am all about budget and this was a cheaper vacation for us but oh it was really bad. From the rooms to the front desk staff. My FI even posted a review on tripadvisor if your interested. Most of the complaints on that site was comparable to what we went through. Any questions let me know.

thank you for your response jennyatk. ya that's what i was worried about b/c the negative reviews are really BAD. I'm trying to be optimistic and am hoping for maybe new management from here to early October when I make my decision. :) I guess i have to keep looking.

We picked Dreams Punta Cana because of the moderate price range, and loved the pics, also a friend of mine had been there for a wedding and she said they did a great job. We also picked it for the wedding package. After we decided on this resort the reviews on Trip advisor were pretty negative for awhile but have since turned back to positive.

But I will say that the time frame you are looking at for your wedding, they didn't much selection left for days. but good luck and congrats on your upcoming wedding.

Dreams Punta Cana looks so beautiful - I can't imagine any negative reviews for that hotel! Thanks for your post Img970. I already have that resort on my list b/c it looks perfect for a wedding, but unfortunately it's still out of my family's price range. Ya I have some searching and calculating still to do. I can't believe dates are booked there for Apr-May 2009! Maybe I'm a little naive about how much time is needed in advance to plan this thing. yikes...

I stayed there in Jan 2009. Make sure your in the new section. Block 3 I think, and you'll be fine. The resort was great, the rooms in the older part were bad. I have a pic of the wedding area if your interested.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
