A confused NEWBIE! ;)

Recommended Posts



First of all, I'd like to say that this is an awesome site and much needed!!! So hats off to those that started it.


I'm newly engaged and am currently in the process of figuring out how to do this whole destination wedding. Originally I really wanted to go to Costa Rica but (for many reasons) have decided to go for Mexico and the Mayan Riviera. WHich hotel?? Well, that is my issue at the moment. The ones I would LOVE to go to seem to be a bit out of my price range. sad.gif eg. Azul fives etc. So I am now considering two other hotels. Secrets Capri or the Valentin. Anyone have any advise huh.gif?? :)


The wedding is to be held March 2010 (although I am flexible with dates too). I do want to book something soon so that I am able to give my family and friends lots of notice to book the time off and save up!


It's a bit confusing though since I've never been to Mexico and am a bit worried about chosing the wrong resort... been doing lots of research! and reading lots of your posts!!! :)


Ok so I won't blabber any further and will keep you psoted on my progress!

I would suggest searching for reviews of the particular resorts you are considering or browsing the wedding review and Riveria Maya sections.


Happy Planning!

    • 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.
