    we have been looking at the majestic colonial to get married at. this is a second wedding for both of us and i have an 8 year old son from my first marriage who is coming with us. that being said - i was hoping for a 1 bedroom or some kind of suite that would give us a bit of privacy - basically so we dont all have to sleep in the same room as each other 6 " apart. as well - i think i read somewhere that the colonial does not allow children in the sit down/alacarte resturants. so the dinner in either resturant they offer with the wedding package would not work for us. i do not want to go through the buffet line in my wedding gown . so we would have to do a private dinner which again adds on extra costs

    we want to get married there is thats like 1750 us plus 55 a head to have dinner - eckkk - thats no photographer, or extra flowers or drinks - sigh - everything is getting so expensive

    does anyone know if there are other resorts that are more family friendly?

    thanks for you help :)

      Check out the Melia Caribe Tropical which is huge, family oriented for one section and all the kids I saw seemed to be loving every minute.

      I do reccomend that if you go there, you stay in Royal Service, much nicer rooms and amenities. Also, they have a free wedding package for 12 guests with the basics you can add onto if you book Royal Service. I just posted a review of our DW there (http://bestdestinati...om/forum/t42288). Also, I heard the Riu complex and Gran Bahia Principe are pretty great if you have kids.

          I'm having my wedding at the Majestic, with kids. We are eating in the steakhouse (NO EXTRA COST YAY!). the steakhouse it not completely private, but they do block off a section for you and the other hotel guests don't sit near you.

          Is this the restaurant that you are talking about that doesn't allow kids? There are 5 sit down restaurants, and the buffet. I believe you can have your reception dinner at any of these restaurants. Let me know if this is not the case.

          Good luck!

          Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

            The Ocean Sands and Ocean Blue resorts are great for all ages. They also have tons of activites.

            Dreams Punta Cana was very family friendly and from what I saw and heard the kids club seemed awesome!
