    I am considering both Paradisus resorts as my possible location. They both look gorgeous! How did you choose between the two?

      Hi Katie,

      The firt thing that we did was compare the prices between property, Palma Real, is more expesive, I like PPC more because the property is very tropical and the room rate is less expensive than PLR also the wedding package have differents prices but are the same. I like both Paradisus but my fiance and I can not afford the cost of a wedding in this awesome resort.

      I hope this information help you.

        Hello Katie,

        I'm was considering both Paradisus too. but I've decided on the Punta cana location. The difference between the two is that the Plama Real is more Mondern Feel and little more pricey and the Punta Cana is more Tropical feel and a little less expensive... I hope that was helpful. Best wishes!

            Both resorts are gorgeous! I chose the Palma Real, because I think it is just beautiful. The price is higher but it will just be the 2 of us so we can afford to spend a little more. The PPC is lovely too, I love their gazebo by the water.

                Can anyone tell me any major differences between these resorts and if these resorts are located on the same grounds or next door to each other? PPR has my preferred wedding date available, but I am concerned it may be too expensive for some of my guests. PPC is a better price for guests but does not have my date available. Both look absolutely beautiful!

                If they are not next to each other, any suggestions for more affordable option for guests near PPR?

                  Melia Caribe is another resort under the Paradisus umbrella - next to PPR and much more affordable.

                  I would go into more detail - but there are numerous threads in the Dominican Republic section about this very question already. Let me know if you have questions about how to search - but TONS of info is posted on here to help you!

                  PS - I was married at PPC and honeymooned at PPR.

                    No, unfortunately they are not located next to each other. The two closet resorts to Paradisus Palma Real are the Melia Caribe Tropical (which both are owned by Sol Melia Resorts) or the Eden NH Real Arena. Both of those resorts are cheaper options for those guests who find PPR a bit too pricey.

                    Keep in mind though that for your wedding day, a lot of resorts charge a visitor fee for a day pass (usually up until 6pm) and then for a night pass past 6pm. I know that the Melia Caribe charges $95 for a day pass and then another $95 for a night pass...it might be about the same since the PPR and Melia are owned by the same company.

                      Thanks so much for your responses!!

                      Foxytv - Did you see a big difference between PPC and PPR? Was PPR worth the extra money? I have already read some of the more recent posts for these resorts, but I will definitely take some time to explore the older posts as well.

                      Jennierin - You're saying it is possible that some people may need to pay $190 to cover day and evening if the wedding spans before and after 6pm? For that price, they may be better off to just stay at PPR! I will check into resort prices at Melia and 1 day passes at PPR.
