    I am considering having my wedding at Ocean Sand resort in Punta Cana. I am trying to set a date for March 2010. Has anyone gotten married at this resort and if you can offer some advice. Also if the rates are reasonable.

    Thanks,
    Crystal

      Hi Crystal,

      I haven't been to a wedding at this resort, but I was there for a vacation January 16-23rd this year. It was a really nice place, beautiful polls, great food, great rooms. I checked out the gazebo in the garden for the weddings, and it was really nice. Though it isn't near the beach-(we were looking for a wedding gazebo location that backs onto the water. ) The only downfall I found was the time-share people are quite aggressive at this resort. I found that quite annoying, but as long as you say NO, and don't let them make you feel bad, you will be just fine.

      We also checked out the Punta Cana Princess which is right down the beach from the Ocean Sand. It is a great resort, though I preferred the Ocean Sand. There are 2 parts to the ocean resort-ocean sand and ocean blue. No real big difference between the two, so don't worry.

      Happy hunting!

        I am getting married at the Ocean Sand this May. I have heard alot of great things about it, and the price is fairly reasonable, we are flying from Toronto. The Wedding Coordinator is great, she is really quick to respond and very helpful so far. We are getting married in the Garden Gazebo. I kind of like taht it's a little bit away from the beach, it seems more private. I might be able to help if you have any specific questions.

            Hi Crystal,

            The wedding coordinator's name is Ada (she's fairly new) and she is great. She is really quick to reply to e-mails and is great in answering any (and all!) of my questions. Her e-mail is: bodas.hobs@oceanhotels.com.do

            Also, we will be getting married the night before we leave, in the Catholic Church. I contacted a Pastor (whose information I got on this forum) and his name is Rick York, and he speaks English which I heard is rare for DR (otherwise Ada would be doing the translating during the ceremony) and Rick York offers a very reasonable price so we booked him. The great thing is that he performs it like a real ceremony, so our guests wouldn't even have to know that we were already married... he does the ring exchange, vow exchange, everything. I didn't want my guests to feel like they "missed the real ceremony" so he is pretty much going to duplciate it, which I am really happy out. I can give you his contact info if you are interested.

              Hi, I am hoping you can help me. I am also from Toronto and was supposed to be getting married June 3rd at Grand Palladium in Mexico, as Im sure you know all flights are cencelled due to this Swine flu so I am thinking about moving the wedding to Ocean Sand. I cant seem to find any wedding packages or contact info online. Can you message me info? the resort looks nice but I have not seen much of the wedding sites. I dont know too much but I have to re-plan my wedding in a matter of days and dont know where to go!! Can you please help?? Thanks!

                  They have a really detailed facebook site. Check them out on there and you will meet a lot of brides that have been married there with tons of picts and opinions. Good luck!
