    haha good question Stacey. Personally I would pick the cheaper of the two. Both are fantastic resorts and are so similar that unless a large amount of your guests would want the Elegance club the Colonial will treat you great.

      I agree! I think that when it comes time, I am just going to see which has the better price and choose that resort since they are so similar. And when you think about it, price is a big deal for guests so they would prefer the cheaper place as well. hth!

        Good idea. If you have any questions about the resort please be sure to let me know. I'll be back in the DR next week.

            The restaurants at the Elegance I believe are better then the Colonial and have better decor, especially the steak house. The restaurants on the beach are basically the same.

            At the moment they share the same spa, casino and sports bar.

            The Elegance has which is called the 'Elegance Club' which is an upgraded service that gives you an adults only area, a lounge with free internet and snacks, big outside beds, and a personal butler. The Colonial doesn't have anything similar to this.

            Price definitely depends on timing, eventually the Elegance will be more expensive all the time but right now it fluctuates a lot.
            Josh question... the adult only sections are ONLY for Elegance Club member or adults... and the roof top bars can we access them if we are not in the club?

            Also what time does the plaza bar close at night??

              The adults only are only for the elegance club members as well as the roof top bars. You can't access them if you aren't in the Elegance Club, and they do check and will deny you.

              By Plaza Bar do you mean the one with the live music? If so that one closes when the show starts at 10.

                Hi all...this is just my opinion but I went to the Majestic Colonial a couple of weeks ago and i would say both resorts are beautiful. My fiance and i are leaning towards the elegance because the gazebo there is better compared to the colonial side. The prices seem to fluctuate but I have seen about a $60 difference between them. I think we are going to see who is really interested in booking and then make a final decision.

                  I just stayed at the Majestic Elegance and the prices were actually $50 cheaper than the Colonial. Either way you will have a beautiful wedding. Good luck!

                    I had a girlfriend get married at the Colonial this past May. She said it was fab. But we are looking to do ours at the Elegance, it looks nicer!! Doesn't seem like there are TOO many differences...
