Hey Carms! First of all... what a cool name!! Is it short for something? Second - woot, I love when there are more Canadians on the forum (let alone a fellow Albertan!) Welcome!

Is there a reason you're going with RIU? Have you been there before? Just curious! :)

Wow, Novemeber 2008 - you've got lots of time to plan. I almost had the exact same date as you!

Welcome to the forum, Carms! :)

Yes Carms is short for Carmen and we chose the RIU chain because our travel agency (not just our travel agent) was gushing about it. Several of them have been to weddings through them and I thought what the heck, why not. It fit our budget and alot of our wants. I am a very low-key kind of girl and didn't want any hassles or stress (although some always seem to pop up msnwink.gif ).

Ya Carms, I've heard really great things about RIU, I've never been myself though. Picking the resort was one of the hardest things for me - at least they made it nice and easy for you!

Yep you've found a great resource for your DW. Riu vallarta looks like a great place. I was interested in that resort as well but we opted for it's neighbor Riu jalisco with the gazebo. The Vallarta is newer and niocer I personally think.

 

I just moved from Edmonton. Is there any snow left? I'm curious.... LOL

    • 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!!
