Blocking rooms

Recommended Posts

How early did everyone start blocking rooms at the hotel?


I am in the process of trying to estimate how many rooms I will need to block so that my TA can start the paperwork with the hotel. since my wedding isn't until April 2010, I don't want to seem pushy by asking all my guests if they think they are actually going or not.

I started blocking rooms last month... I'm getting married August 2010. I based the number of rooms I needed to block on the amount of guests I was going to invite. I don't have to pay for unused rooms so I took my maximum amount of guests as an estimate.

I blocked in January for November. I sent an email out to family and close friends and asked if they thought they may be coming and got a good # from there. I went over on the room block because it is Thanksgiving weekend and the hotel books up - but we can drop any amount until May, and then we can drop certain percentages of rooms after that if they aren't booking - the being able to drop rooms is very helpful and highly recommended

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
