Thanks for all the info...
I would say yes, especially depending on how you have it set up. It's one of the main buffet restaurants for breakfast and lunch only so it's pretty big.

In this pic the section off to the left is the Indian restaurant, and the two sections to the right are both in Blue Lagoon. To the very far right and out of frame is the Italian restaurant.

Below is the view from the other side. In this pic, you see the Italian restaurant and the Blue Lagoon is the part sticking furthest out into the pool.

(Can you tell I took a LOT of pics while I was there??)

Thanks for all of the info!! The sunset is absolutely BEAUTIFUL! We heading down to GP Oct 9th-13th to check it out. I am hoping that they have the beach location fixed up by then, since that is where I would like to have my ceremony. Do you think 50+ people could fit on the beach area?

 

I will post pictures of the updates/repairs that they have made since the hurricane. Thanks again for the great pics and information, it helps a lot!! I feel a lot less stressed out just seeing how amazing it looks in your pics.

 

One more thing...did you talk with her about getting a block of rooms discounted for your wedding guests? YAY! I am SOO EXCITED!!!

 

(someone needs to make a rasta smiley icon for all of us Jamaica brides!!! lol)

Definitely looking forward to your updates in October! I'm not sure how many people can fit at the beach location, but it was in a nice location- La Brisas beach. (see map below)

The gazebo is going to be located at what's labeled as "Lookout Point" on the map.

We chose not to pay deposits to hold rooms for the group, so I didn't inquire about that. We're using a travel agent who is booking our guests on packages from Apple Vacations, which are still really good.

Also wanted to share this resort map with everybody as well:

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
