Dreams Punta Cana - Reception Locations?

Recommended Posts

Hello ladies!

 

For previous brides or people who have been there, do you have recommendations on where to have a wedding reception there? We are considering the Bordeaux Terrace or the Boda Terrace. The wedding planner on site recommends the Bordeaux Terrace (french restuarant).

 

We will have about 40 guests. We obviously want the reception location to be beautiful and just plain nice.

 

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Nicole

Did the Bordeaux Terrace has enough space for dancing?

Have you posted any pics from your wedding and do you have any including your reception? I would love to see the set up because I think we'll end up with about the same amount as you!

Also, who did you end up with for a Wedding Coordinator?

Thanks~!

Here are some pics of the Bordeaux Terrace. If you go on the interactive map of the resort on the Dreams web-site you can see where it was located.

Also- I got a pic of the Boda Tza Salon? I don't know where it is located on the resort- it looks bigger.

And here is a pic of the set up for a reception on the beach

Thanks for the information Shelley and congratz on your recent marriage! How was the wedding and how was the Dreams Punta Cana resort? Did you and your guests love it?! Any warnings or suggestions? Day by day we are more excited about our wedding there on May 1st..... :) We are trying to figure out if we should have a DJ come for a few hours to play after dinner or if we should all just head to the Disco instead? Thoughts?

 

Thanks so much!

Nicole

We had Maria as our coordinator and I never had any issues with communication or her getting back to us, as some people seem to have had. She was great to work with!

The resort is gorgeous. It is so lush, and there is wildlife (flamingoes, parrots) everywhere. The pool is just amazing too - it goes all the way through the resort, so there is a lot of room to just laze around. The beach is good too. Some people complained about the coral reef, but if you went swimming to the left of the watersports it was all sand, and so much fun! No one really got cut up or anything like I've read on some reviews. The food was delicious too.

I personally didn't think the DJ would be worth the cost, and after using just our ipod (with a playlist we made ahead of time) and the speakers we rented, I would stick with this decision. The private reception has to end at 10:30, so there isn't a lot of time for music. There was space on the Bordeaux terrace for dancing, but we didn't do a lot. We just went to the disco after dinner.

Also I would recommend the video. Depending on what you are doing for photography (bringing your own or getting the resort photographers) the video was totally worth the money. It was not as cheesy as I suspected it would be, and it is such a nice memento to have right away. We got it the night after our wedding! It was a nice way to see our guests reactions and expressions, as we didn't really see them during our ceremony (we were looking at each other, obviously!)

If you have any more questions, feel free to PM me, or post here.

This is located in the main building, it is above the main buffet and down the hall from the Himitsu restaurant. It is a very nice location - very central.

    • 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
