    That's crazy - glad that you narrowed it down, though.

    We stayed at the RIU Palace for 2 weeks and it was amazing. What really made it blissful was the seafood - so fresh and tasty!

      PC Bride, do you have any photos of the rooms? My parents got back from a visit to PC last week, and Iberostar was their favorite of the places. I hope to read your reviews after the wedding!

        Thanks for posting this. I love reading reviews to know what to expect and what not to expect. I'm sorry you had to go through that though I understand it can be frustrating :-(

          No, I've only been able to find a few online, but the whole property was recently renovated so I am definitely on the hunt for information as well.

          We are about 7 weeks out now and I am getting more and more nervous as it nears.

            I am sorry you had such a tough time. Sounds horrible. The Riu Palace looks fantastic and is actually one of my top choices...just depends on rates for my guests. I have too many top choices though. lol. Can I ask what made you decide on Riu.

            Oh and take a deep breath. Seems to me based on all my readings that everything works out beautifully for nearly everyone. Isn't that why we are all planning the DW?! :) It will be wonderful, I'm sure!

            Once again, I am so glad that this site exists. We are heading to DR in August and were thinking of just going to check out a few places...my FI speaks spanish and a friend is Dominican, but to pay for taxis and then sit outside on our vacation, no thanks. :)

            Thanks for this thread!

                Riu you cant go wrong the price is good for every body and your pocket. The fact that the WC did not take the time out to see u was rude. They are a bit over worked I hear with all the wedding they have to do and short staffing. The only thing u have to worry about is the hard beds I hear which u can ask for bed covers.

                  I think it's just good security! I understand why you're upset but better to be protected ya know!

                    I guess the security is a good thing but that is too bad that you had to go through all of that.

                     

                    Would you mind giving some feedback on Ocean Blue? I am getting married there but staying on the Ocean Sands side. I wish I could have done a site visit before.

                     

                    Thanks!!

                      I hope the Riu is magical for you that that you have a fabulous wedding!



                      I totally agree with this. I'm glad that you figured out your resort, and am sorry you got the run around from security at most places. I am thankful, though, that security is so tight at these places. Makes me feel much safer going there. I'm sure it's a huge weight off your shoulders to have narrowed down the resort so congrats on that!
