using a credit card at ROR???

Recommended Posts

Hi there, Im just curious. Does anyone know when paying Chandyln for your wedding fees or when paying for the Steel drum band, do they accept credit cards or does it have to be cash? I really dont want to lug a WHOLE bunch of cash with us . I would like to use my visa as much as possible. Does the salon accept credit cards? Michael, the photographer did tell me he only accepts cash, no credit cards allowed. If anyone can answer my questions I would really appreciate it.

Thanks

Mel

 

ps...we leave to get married in 6 days! Im so EXCITED!!!

I would be carefull using your c/c some places charge up to an extra 10% on purcheses plus some c/c survices charge a fee for international use. I would check with your c/c befor hand.

 

Just a heads up.

Yeah I do know my CC charges more interest, I work at a bank and it seems like we can withdraw money from an ATM done there and it wouldn't be so bad. I really don't want to carry all that cash on me either I'm soooo scared it would get stolen or something

We were going to use travellers cheques too, but were told they were more of a hassle than just taking cash. Some hotels will only cash a max of $50 dollars a day etc.

Re traveller's cheques, I called the resort directly and they only cash them into Jamaican dollars, no USD. You would have to go to the bank in town to cash traveller's cheques into US funds.

 

I'm not 100% decided but I think that I'm just going to estimate how much money I need to pay Chandlyn for the "free" wedding package, the steel drum band, reception cost, flowers etc, and bring that in cash (and never let it leave my sight).

 

I don't want any extra charges on my credit card (and the flower shop and an Lee's Tours have both told me that there will be extra charges to use credit cards -between 5 and 7% I think).

    • 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.
