Recommended Posts

Hi Crystallball


Your photos look ace and I am sure your photographer ones are even better.


It all looked like it went well - congratulations!



The forums appear to have gone quiet!


Its 7 weeks till we go and we marry on 8th April. Getting exciting now


Did you take your own photographer with you? Could you use the resort photographer to take more?


Hope to hear from you soon and congratulations again

Hi everyone! We've booked Playa Pesquero leaving Nov 29 - still waiting on Yaly to find out about the date of the ceremony. I was looking at the wedding packages and keep reading about the Tobacco Legend and Cuban Rum Legend Packages at $1200 each, but I've never heard any mention of these on the forums - does anyone know about these and what's included? Thanks!

I have a question to Playa Pesquero brides or anybody who have been at this hotel:


I'm REALLY shy and I really don't want to get married on the beach where people are sunbathing and watching! I even seen pictures of ceremonies done at the gazeebo and you arrive in a horse and carriage on the beach in front of everybody! People keep telling me it's not so bad cause the ceremony is done in a more secluded part of the beach, but I'm still freaking out!!! I would love to find a really private spot possibily overlooking the ocean, with just me and my guests.


Does anyone know if we HAVE to get married at these two spots (either the new gazeebo or the arch on the beach), or is there other places on the beach that we could chose from? I'm looked at a sattelite image of the hotel and have seen a laguna or a small beach that looks totally private, at the extreme left side of the hotel, do you know if you can do it there, or wherever we want on hotel grounds?

Hi Sirenita,

Here is what Yaly sent me about the wedding venues, hope it helps:


" A quiet beachfront spot with a stunning view of the ocean decorated with a white arch & flowers is a trendy choice for a Caribbean wedding.


For a more conventional and intimate ceremony, couples choose the gazebo, overlooking the pool gardens and decorated with white drapes

and flowers.


Playa Pesquero tropical gardens are another excellent choice given its vibrant and exuberant greenery."


So it looks like there are three spots - if you don't want onlookers, maybe the garden site would be better. I'm sure if you wanted to get married at another location they'd probably accomodate you.

Hi Ladies

I have not been yet - but go in 16 sleeps time!

I probably can advise you both more on my return.


I am sure you have searched all the other threads about Cuba like I did - I have been in touch with a few brides, however the best person to answer your questions is probably Yaly - she usually replies to emails on weekends (when there are no weddings).


We have not yet decided on our location, going to decide when seen them in person. I fancied gazebo overlooking sea, but not on beach itself - but once seen the beach setting it looks stunning so I dont know - having said that we are a party of 29 going over - so gardens with gazebo where everyone can sit in shade might be better for our guests - again will decide on arrival.


We have provisionally booked beach BBQ with Yaly - dont pay until get there - and are contemplating the legends package - not sure which one yet.


Speak soon

Thanks so much Corobeus!


16 sleeps, wow, not much time left for you, wouhou! !!


I would really appreciate it if you could give me your feedback on the different location when you get back, cause it's still making me really nervous, I don't think the quiet beachfront spot is that "quiet" (or maybe not quiet enough for me!), but tell me how it goes!


And I think the new gazeebo is on the beach, if I'm not mistaken?

yes Yaly has sent me pictures the new gazebo is right on the beach

The older wooden gazebo is in the grounds and from pictures looks pretty remote

The beach gazebo looks really pretty (and I didnt want to get married on the beach)

so I will wait till I get there and decide - Yaly says she will walk us round them all, I do believe there is a third choice


We have 29 of us in total - so to keep everyone cool we may have to go for garden one unless they can out our guests in shade - we requested 4pm wedding April 2010 and did not get it - we have been given 2pm so its going to be hot!


will let you know - 3 weeks today is my wedding day - 2 weeks today we jet off

    • 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
