Hey everyone. Just got engaged

Recommended Posts

We are really just trying to decide the best resort for the money. From what we have seen, Dreams may be the most picturesque resort but Grand Lido may be a better deal. Would anyone that has been to either mind giving pros and cons on them. From what we have read the advantages and disadvanges of each are




Nicer rooms

Much, Much better pool

Seems to have a better wedding package


Can't swim in the water and pool may be chilly in April

Not everything is included ie Watersports

Golf courses beautiful but very expensive

Bars stop at 1


Grand Lido

Cheaper (we have a friend that can get us 50% off 5 or so rooms)

From the reviews seems to have better food

More inclusive

Can go in the water and long beach


May not be able to leave resort

Rooms aren't as nice

Pool is tiny

Clothing optional part may surprise some of the older members of our party


Thanks again for any help. We have tried reading as much as possible and just want to make the best decision. We are expecting anywhere from 30-40 people to join us on the trip. Right now we are split on where to go (Rachel-Cabo Derrick-Grand Lido)

    • 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.
