Iberostar Grand Rose Hall

Recommended Posts

Hi Allie,

 

Just to clarify the Grand prices: it's a set price to rent out the restaurant with a buffet (varies based on the number of people) OR $70 pp for an a la carte dinner (no $4500 fee on top)...so the prices are comparable on a per person basis.  It is stil la lot more money than the Suites.  Good luck with your planning.

Just seemed like more money but not really sure what extra we'd be getting.  Besides, we plan to do a lot of extras - I am having chairs brought in, different flowers, etc. etc.

 

I don't really know anything about the beach so I can't be helpful there.

Hey Allie

The difference between the suites and the grand is the beauty of the space and possibly a difference in type of food offered. I looked at both spaces, and the Grand definitely has a nicer overall ambiance.

Thank you, thank you for clarifying.  That's why this forum is so nice - because I read the brochures/information as one thing and since no one at the hotel responds to me I am able to get my answers.

 

The Grand is beautiful and we plan to stay there for the wedding even though our actual wedding will be at the Suites.  We just ended up with an invite list with too many kids and we wanted to be able to enjoy activities throughout the week with all our guests - not just the kid-free ones.

Ive just seen photos on Tai Flora's website, but they are not exclusive to The Grand.  I have decided to bring the majority of my decorations based on quoted prices to me. I have to be realistic on the budget that I'm working with.

Hey Ladies,

 

Any past brides, used the resort DJ? Also did you change the ceremony script? 

30 more days and I am starting to freak out as my mind runs a mile a minute! smile72.gif

Is anyone doing their wedding reception in front of the Port Maria? I love the set up that this bride recently did. You can see the set up by going to their photographers website (just scroll down and you will see the dinner set up). http://www.lauranovak.net/index.cfm?catID=5

 

Tai Flora hasn't responded to me with pricing on doing this set up and I'm curious to find out what the cost is.

I was originally booked at the Iberostar Grand for my wedding March 13th, 2013. I have now cancelled for several reasons: Every time I asked a question about booking, I would receive an extremely vague answer, WEEKS later. The information I received from the resort, each sheet contradicted itself in terms of pricing and you really don't get much for $3000 besides the ceremony. I have since then switched to Secrets St James/Wild Orchid and have received more than the info I asked for within hours. You also get a private dinner/reception for $800 less than the wedding package from the Iberostar! The Iberostar looks beautiful but we wouldn't be able to afford the full wedding we want! I bet those of you that can will have an absolutely beautiful wedding!!!! Good luck to everyone, I hope you have a less difficult time than I did figuring everything out!!!

Kristen,

 

You will enjoy Secrets St James!  My fiance and I stayed there when they first opened and saw a few small weddings (just the couple and maybe a couple of guests).  We would have considered it for our wedding as well, but we wanted an adults-only place that would allow kids at the ceremony/reception. 

 

Good luck!

    • 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.
