Marie's Moon Palace Review 04.02.2009

Recommended Posts

Thank you so much for the review! I have also requested David Pena for my photographer and seeing your pictures really helped! The one with the birds is amazing! We just switched our room block to the Grand Moon side and are keeping our fingers crossed to avoid construction, but like you said the size of the room really helps! I can't wait to see more of your pictures! Thanks again! :)

Thanks for posting your review and congrats! I love your pics on the beach! Do you know where you went for your TTD session? I'd love to know, since I'm bringing my photogs with me and we won't be familiar with the area!

can i ask one question - we are planning on doing a ttd session, but wasn't sure if the beach at moon palace would be a good location, because of the seaweed situation - did you do yours at the mp beach - and if not, how long did it take you to get to a near-by beach?

thanks in advance, and again, thanks for the review - very helpful....your pictures make me feel at ease about using the resort hairdresser and make-up artist - you look gorgeous!

Thank you! :)
Due to the outside vendor policy at the resort, we had to use an alternate beach, which was more than fine with me. It gave us a little variety in the photos.You'll notice that the beaches closer to town are a lot more pristine and the water much clearer.... Its actually breathtaking at the Beach Palace which is near downtown.
We made arrangements to meet Cecilia at the Forum mall because there was a nice public beach right near by. Unfortunately the tide was up and the beach was under water, so we hopped in Cece's car and drove to another public beach like five minutes away. The Forum mall was like a 30 minute drive to get to, but then only a 20 minute drive back to the MP (the routes were different). We took a taxi which totalled about $45 round trip.

Thanks all!

 

There is a beach right next door to the Forum mall. Theres a parking garage and you literally walk out the entrance of the garage and around the cement wall and you're there. The beach we shot at was further north in downtown. It was a locals beach. I can ask Cecilia what the name of the beach was.

thanks for your help...our photographer is going to be staying at the hotel, but i don't want seaweed in my dress!lol

 

thats good to know the beach is only 30mins away...although we are planning on getting up for sunrise, 30mins might seem like hours at that time in the morning....i'd love to have my ttd in the resort pools, wonder if they'd let us do that!

    • 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.
