I'm relieved to hear you have seen another reception on the beach. I'm not worried about the privacy, I'm more interested in the atmosphere/ mood of the place. Was it nice? I'm cool to have the reception on the sand under the moonlight. Was it open air; directly on the beach? Was there lights and things set up? I wonder if we can set up the Dj equipment?

Oh, it's really nice!  If I remember correctly they had lights strung up and a DJ.  If it's the area I'm thinking of, it was right on the beach...I'll see if I can find a picture of the general vicinity during the day from when we were there.

Well, apparently we didn't take a pic of the area so I googled it and this was the best I could find.  This is a pic looking out from the snack bar on the beach...I wonder if they will have your bar set up in here?  It's only open during the day for guests, but I'm sure they would use for a food prep area for evening functions.  The area out on the sand where all the chairs are set up was where we saw that evening function taking place...you'll definitely see the stars and hear the waves crashing!

I think this is nice. The WC said it was the same place that they often hold different events at night. I can't imagine it would be anywhere else as it would be difficult to set up the bar somewhere else.

Hello ladies 

 

 I was wondering if anyone has the pictures of ceremony sites available?  I have been looking but cant seem to find them. I have heard that there is a beautiful site that is on a little bit of a rock ledge overlooking the water, just wondering if any of u have seen this.

 

Thanks

Hi all 

We r hopping that somebody can help us by giving us a whole review for a grand serenis wedding in the palapa. The wedding venue looks amazing but we are not sure about the hotel service, and quality. We r thinking in a late April wedding 2012. Please girls, you out there that used this hotel, please help!! Fiancé and I are concerned because of the bad reviews that this hotel have. we want our family and friends to have a good experience.

Prometida: There are several reviews in this thread; try going back a couple of months and you should find what you're looking for. Everyone had a great time and reviews were positive.

 

MissNikki: PM me if you still need photos and I'll send you a link to mine.

It has been a few years since I was there but when I was the service was great, the food was good - nothing great, nothing horrible.  The beach is beautiful and I loved the ice cream shop.  We are going back in April to get married and have travelled to the Riviera area about 7 or 8 times we choose the Grand Sirenis b/c of the private palapa and the price we were able to get.  I have been reading the reviews on TripAdvisor and they are making me nervous too!

    • 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.
