any punta cana resorts better for families?

Recommended Posts

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://bestdestinationwedding.com/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!

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

    • Hi, my sister is getting married next year. She is very disappointed with the look of her tooth because they have a wide gap between her two front teeth. She always complains that parents have failed to correct this fault at the initial stage. Now, we don't have sufficient time to rectify the teeth because braces take at least two years for proper rectification. We have heard about 6 months braces from a friend of mine in Houston. Is this treatment effective? Is it possible to rectify the misaligned teeth in just six months? Please give some genuine replies and suggestions. Thanks in advance.
    • Hi,
      We are planning to celebrate our parents 25th wedding anniversary. We have been searching for a place to hold the party. Actually, we are planning to celebrate this as a wedding ceremony, as most of our families are there. We searched on the internet and found a place in Kingston. We are planning to book one of the resorts in Kingston to stay and celebrate our party. But, it's not been finalized yet. It's been a long time since we had met together and this could be a chance to increase our bond for love and togetherness.
      Folks, if you have any suggestions for the destinations, share your suggestions. After all, this is our parents second wedding ceremony and we must make it so grand. Hope you will share your ideas.Thanks in advance!
