New wedding coordinator at Villa Premiere?

Recommended Posts

So I am planning on booking my wedding at Villa Premiere, but Evelina (the wedding coordinator everyone recommended) is no longer there. Now it is a new guy named Ricardo, has anyone used him before? Is he any good?

I don't know anything about Ricardo; my FI and I took a scouting trip last month (Nov 7-12), and we stayed at the Villa Premiere (and Buenaventura, since they are sister hotels). When I was planning everything, the WC at Villa Premiere was Fabiola, but I had a really hard time getting in touch with her and she never met with us while we were there. I had talked to the WC at the Buenaventura as well, but she wouldn't respond either and when I got there I found out she had quit. It sounds like they have a lot of turnover at both hotels. In my opinion, Fabiola was a little flaky as well - when I was trying to meet either of the coordinators when we were down there, the front desk dialed a phone for me and I spoke to Fabiola, the new WC at the Buenaventura, and I think Susanna (group sales?) on the phone but none were willing to meet. Is it possible to find out where Ricardo came from or his history? Or maybe pictures (we like pictures!!) I think it might be useful if you initially lay out what you expect from them (i.e. how rapid the communication), and make sure you keep in touch just in case. Just my opinion! I don't mean to be a Debbie Downer - Villa Premiere is a nice hotel and I know all the hotel WC's are pretty overwhelmed! I just wasn't impressed with the quality of service in comparison to the others we worked with. Good luck! And let us know how it goes!

Awesome thanks so much! I will try and get a hold of her. BTW - I think I'm going to go with another location in PV.


The pics I got from WC at Villa Premiere we just not very impressive! Thanks for all of your help!

    • 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!!
