For those interested in Jamaica-Destination Wedding & Honeymoon Expo in Westbury, NY

Recommended Posts

I just heard a commercial for this on the radio. It is a Destination Wedding & Honeymoon expo specifically for people interested in getting married or honeymooning in Jamaica. There will be vendors there from different resorts as well as vendors specializing in other areas. I figured it would be helpful for anyone who is thinking about Jamaica, especially since some of the resorts that we commonly talk about on BDW will be represented there.

 

It takes place on Sunday, March 29th, at the Holiday Inn in Westbury, Long Island.

 

Here is the link to the website for more info:

No problem at all. I hope that its helpful! I wish that something like this would have taken place when I was planning. It sounds like an excellent resource for making decisions about the resort & vendors.

Ladies, I believe this event is being hosted by Worldwide Group Travel and I have to tell you that I wouldn't go anywhere near it. Lisa Jones-Smith, the owner of that company was my first TA (I had to switch because she's terrible). She is a liar and stole money from us. She is still using my photo on her website for advertising purposes even after I have contacted her in writing at least 10 times telling her she does not have my permission to use my photo and information and please remove it. She refuses to respond. While the event sounds like it may have good information, I really do not recommend anything that has to do with this person. She was completely unprofessional and continues to be.

Not yet. She refused to answer any of my requests by mail. Right now the attorney general in my state is investigating and I'm in the process of having the attorney general in NY get involved. They just needed some more information to move forward. I doubt anything will ever happen with this and it really makes me mad that she'll get away with it. At this point, I'd really like her to remove my picture from her site. If she doesn't I might sue her, if its possible. I don't want anyone to look on there and think I was a happy customer who promotes her services. She was the worst person to work with and really made me miserable. I've literally sent her at least 10 written requests to remove my info from her site, including certified letters that she signed for so I know she received them.

    • 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
