Hi everyone it is finally down to two.... Now we can't decide between the two, the RIU is a little bit cheaper, yet is supposed to be outdated in some respects. The IBEROSTAR has nicer pools but seems to have more of a kiddie atmosphere... We just can't decide and what we want to see before we go are pictures of ceremonies at both places so that we can decide based on which one has the nicest backdrop, scenery, set-up etc... Any help would be greatly appreciated in helping us make our decision.... it took forever to get to this part and now this headache is still hanging on...

Hi! Just wondering what resort you decided on? I have a date tentatively reserved at the Riu Yucatan and need to make my final decision by Friday. It's hard because not many people on this forum have been married there. The price is really reasonable and I'm not sure it's worth paying an extra $200/person for the Riu Palace Riviera Maya.

Hi! We chose Iberostar but they are both nice resorts. What took RIU out of the running for us was that they only allow you to stay 3 nights or more. For a lot of our guests, we knew that they would not be able to take alot of vacation and we wanted to give them as many options as possible. Hope that helps!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
