Dominican Republic Brides~ POST HERE!

Recommended Posts

OCEAN HOTELS - by H10 and Hodelpa Hotels & Resorts is their website

 

I chose it for a number of considerations. First we narrowed down our country to the Dominican, then area (PC), then we looked at the resorts in that area. We chose Ocean because 1. it is fairly new (2005), 2. the price was reasonable for our guests 3. I had heard good reviews of the resort and specifically weddings there. That helped clinch it for me.

 

Hubby doesn't care... he just needs to know where to show up, LOL

It looks really nice!! I totally know what you mean about where to show up. Joe's attitude is "as long as there is a beach, you and me, we're covered" funny!

 

So I think we're finally 99% decided on a resort - Gran Bahia. I think we just need to book and get it over with

Yes, we chose it for the exact reasons as Deb listed. Also, I liked it cuz it was big enough for our 60 guests but not too big where it everyone can't find each other either.

 

In all honesty after 3 months of researching, starting in Mexico and ending up in DR . OB was the most reasonable price & had it all from good food, to updated look, to big beach, great activities and lots of bars/restaurants to choose from. But the best was the price point - we started looking at resorts $2800 per person and now our guests are only going to be paying $1275. Very happy I was.

 

My TA just got back from Ocean Blue and she raved about it. She said it was so much better than she ever imagined.

 

Good luck TVT with your choice and planning.

Cheers,

Sabrina

Could you post some of the info about the Ocean Blue. My TA recommended it as well but I have not been able to find any information!
Thanks!

The best place to get info for Ocean sands/blue I found, was travel advisor, lots of reviews and pictures and you can do the virtual tour. This is where I tell all of my guests, for our wedding, to look. Google the resort and then look for the travel advisor web site.

By the way I am also getting married at the ocean Sand, on Aug 14th of this year. I am thrilled with my choice of resort, Julissa the wc at the resort has been wonderful, she responds back to my questions within a few hours. She has put me at ease and made me feel that this will be the wedding I envision. I don't feel like I will have any unpleasant surprises, Julissa, and all the brides who have posted about this resort on other forums, have convinced me that I have made the right choice.

I am just getting started, thinking of having out wedding in Punta Cana.. Edyta, I tried to view images but was having trouble, maybe because I have a mac. Do you have images elsewhere? Your signature pic looks amazing, I'd love to see the rest.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
