I had the same doubt, i think that it depends on how many guests you have. I first had a resort because i thought it would be easier and more affordable. When I set and did my math i saw that maybe not, and decide for the venue that got my heart  in the first place! Sunset Da Monalisa.  I canceled my resort date, got a large villa and everybody loved the idea. I planned it all! very easy with the help of this forum!!

Hi! I actually did, I went Villa Del Arco. the only thing I am a little concerned is the sales team when they try to sell the time shares to the guests at check-in. I keep hearing its gets really bad lol But other than that, it fits within our budget, the location is beautiful, and its kid friendly. Where are you having yours?

 

Keep us updated!

That's great! I'm glad you guys found a place that you were both happy with.

 

I'm having mine at Casa Dorada- a pretty new resort in the heart of Cabo. Everything has been pretty simple so far, and their dinner prices were actually REALLY affordable for supposedly great food. I'm going on a site visit in 2 weeks (right after Thanksgiving) so I'm going to do a tasting then- we shall see!

So the trip was awesome... we ended up just going to Costco and taking a look at their flowers, which were beautiful! They sold them by the bouquet, just like in the US. If you aren't too particular, this would be a great option, and were about 115-130 pesos per bouquet (about $10 each). I did not end up going to a flower market... If anyone is able to do this or has done this, please respond to this post as I am still interested in this option! For my cake I did a tasting with Deena from Sweet Dreams and it was AAAHHHMMAAAAAAAZING!!! I was told I could pick 3 flavors, but I couldn't pick just three and she let me do 5. All of them were good, so I decided to do mini bitesize cupcakes in 3 flavors so everyone could try them all. I will do a small one tiered cake on a stand to cut. Up until the tasting I was almost considering skipping the cake since my buffet includes dessert, but the cake was to good to pass up and I like the tradition of it. Also, I love food, especially sweets so it was a done deal. I was ablet to trade out the desserts on the buffet for appetizers, so it all worked out. I did look at cakes at Costco prior to the tasting, and they also looked tasty and were 150-170 pesos and looked like they would serve around 8-12 per cake. This would be a great (and much less expensive) option as well. I did speak to a florist while I was there, but have not booked anything with them yet... I'll probably have them do my arch. We are doing a DJ only, and planning to play some recorded music that my fiance's dad and brother will record for the ceremony (they are both musicians). We would have really like them to play live, but since his dad is the officiant and brother is the best man, it would have been too much. Also, I didn't want them to feel like we were putting them to work at our wedding! One thing I really want to find is 1.75 L bottles of Malibu and Cazadores... so if anyone can find the big bottles (in any liquor) let me know! We could only find Captain Morgan in this size at Sam's Club... Caboberrybride - when and where is your wedding? How cool that we will be there at the same time ;)

Hi again Flo :) I actually had a time share at Casa Dorada and considered hosting our wedding there but their coordinator last year (forgot her name) was so unresponsive. Prices were good, attention to detail and responsiveness horrible. That was the most frustrating part. Also, this hotel is on Medano Beach so there's a lot of visitor-vendor traffic on that beach. The hotel itself is beautiful, very modern, and their suites have a small kitchen with fridge, stove and microwave so if guests are up for a 5 minute drive to the Walmart Supercenter to load up on food and drinks, they will save a ton of money during their stay.

Thanks for the info- I was warned about the vendors on Medano Beach so we are having the wedding in the resort on a terrace looking out to the beach so you can't actually see any of the vendors from there. The music from the bar next door is loud as well, but they say they turn it down when there is a wedding. We'll see! And thanks for the tip on Walmart! :)

    • 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
