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!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
