    Hey guys...I just came back from DR...I was worried the Dreams Palm Beach was not ready for the wedding and in my opinion it def was not what I wanted. I switched over to RIU Palace Punta Cana which is amazing!! I have many pics... PM and I can share the link or I can try to post them. My wedding is May 22...Riu was fabulous to work with....the coordinators are great. The place is magical. Dreams is a really small simple resort....Riu is just stunning.

      I stayed at the Gran Bahia Principe (just beside the Riu Palace) and I kept telling people " I WANT TO BE THERE!!". The architecture is just amazing and I've heard nothing but good things about the Riu Palace from travel agents. Congrats!

        If it is anything like the one in Cabo your photographer will have a fantastic time. There are pics on my web site of the Palace in Cabo and the photo below is from one of their infinity pools You are going to have fun!

          If you don't mind me asking, was there a huge difference in price between the Dreams and the Riu? And why was Palm Beach not what you wanted? We have narrowed our choices down to Dreams Punta Cana and Dreams Palm Beach based on package prices, and are taking a planning trip in July to choose between the due. Any information you could give me, positive or negative, regarding Palm Beach would be really appreciated.

            Is there a wedding gazebo at the Riu Palace Punta Cana? Do you have any pics?

                We stayed there for 2 weeks - let me try and post a pic:

                Here is the gazebo. It's right off of the beach.
