Dreams Tulum Closure (consolidated thread)

Recommended Posts

Amy706, one more thing, they have not told me they are going to relocate me yet. They said I would know on Oct 20th, but I heard from one of the other brides that arrives the same day as me and they told her they would decide on Oct 25th, so I think that will apply to me also. I would assume they will decide on the Dec brides by Nov 25 if it is not fixed, but that is totally my assumption.

Am I the only Nov bride who still hasnt heard back from anyone?

so i woke up in a panic sweating last night. it suddenly occured to me that my wedding is in mid-to-late December..... I haven't been asked to pay for anything due to the fact that the resort is closed.... We are not required to pay our balances until the matter is "resolved"

 

My question is....what happens if the resort does not re-open? Are they bound by anythng to me or my guests to make sure that we are taken care ofhuh.gif?? my guess would be no....

 

Are there any of you December brides out there worring about the same thing

They are bound by your reservations. I'm sure you've booked your room already, right? And most of your guests have booked too? That's what they consider as a contract.
I personally, haven't paid a $$ related to my wedding. I've only paid my weeks stay at the resort. I wouldn't worry abou it.

Thanks for the info, Alin&Mako!

Amesharpe, I have only paid for the deposit on my hotel.

 

Althogh my TA told me yesterday we have to go ahead and collect full payment as originally planned or else we won't be covered through Apple Vacations. So we're all paying for our hotel in full this week despite the damn place not even being open!

 

Hopefully we can find out SOMETHING on 10/20- Monday. Hasn't been much new information this week and its driving me nutty!

amy706 & others,

Our wedding scheduled 11/27/08. We have paid in full for 60 guests back a few weeks ago (just before all this happened). Anyway, my TA talked with Apple and demanded they switch us to another resort - they responded with an absolute NO and told us we had to work with Dreams to get relocated or they could give us a refund. This tells me Apples real customer is Dreams not us. I did get an e-mail from Sandra at Dreams that they should have some news for us by Tuesday next week. I am hoping for the best! The new Dreams PA is suppose to open 12/1 (I would check on that option).

This sucks. My wedding is not until January but I'm starting to get calls from wedding guests to 'warn me that the resort is having issues and what are we going to do. I was hoping to avoid these conversations. I finally had to break the news to my mother because of these calls. her response was, 'you can always get married in Chicago.' Comments like that don't help. My soon to be MIL was actually quite calm about the whole thing and has complete faith that it will all work out for the best. I need more people to keep telling me that because I'm starting to stress. I just want to cont to plan my wedding and this is putting the breaks on. my mom even said we should hold off sending out our offical invites. thats when I snapped and said we're going to cont with things as planned and deal with it later if it becomes an issue! Sorry guys, just had to vent!!!! Thanks:)

Poor you. Stick to your guns - you wanted to have a DW and you are going to have one. Worse case scenario is that you will be moved to another resort - and we have already heard back from some of the brides who this has happened to that everything went amazingly well.

Thanks, SandyW for the info.

 

That doesn't surprise me about Apple. Thank God Dreams is being pretty great about relocating everyone, keeping the rates the same and keeping the whole party together. I hope we actually do get some news (GOOD NEWS PLEASE!) on Tuesday. Waiting not knowing is worse! I've put the breaks on all kinds of things and in the end will probably just scrap the menu, programs, etc that i haven't done yet since i'm pushing it all off now while in limbo.

 

SBlake, I agree with Sunbride. Hold strong. I would hope DT is all straight by January and in the even it is not htey will have had quite a bit of practice relocating weddings by then! And just the think the very first ones who it happened to (Trish and Brooke and now others!) have had WONDERFUL reviews. The bottom line is if you stick with it- dreams will sort it out either way and no matter what happens you will marry your FI in a GORGEOUS location. Your friends and family will have an amazing times at a gorgeous resort with great cocktails and food! STICK WITH IT! Dont let this get you down. Send your invites!

    • 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.
