    Hi!
    I am debating between these two resorts..was wondering if anyone has gone on a site visit and has anything positive or negative to say about either place that will help me decide lol
    Thanks

      Colonial :)

      Facebook had a great group "Majestic Colonial Brides". I found so much more information about the Colonial. Elegance is great but still new.

      Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs

          No, I haven't, but I've been to the Colonial twice so I'm a little biased :) But also it just looks like there's more information about it floating around the net and may be easier to research and plan out.

            I am going in August to check it out..I never heard of it until recently and now it seems whoever I speak with has just been to majestic. But that may not be good because all dates might be taken for next spring lol
            Congrats on your engagement and future wedding :)

              I can't give you any info on the Riu, but if you have any questions about the Majestic be sure to ask. Next week will be my 5th or 6th week there this year.

                    I think the Majestic had gained it's popularity in the past year or two. It was just built in 2005 I believe, so all the "startup bugs" are worked out and things are running smoothly.

                    I think everything is great there, but apparently people aren't crazy for the food.
