We a getting married at Casa de Campo in La Romana in January. I haven't seen much about this location on here but itâ€™s magnificent! The wc are slow as they are everywhere in DR it seems. Hoping to hear from others considering this location or have had a wedding there or planning one there.

The grounds are beautiful, private and safe, also extremely immense!! they will provide a golf cart to get around!!! You will need it...
The pools are all within room and dining distance, the beach is far!! you have to drive your golf cart atleast 15 minutes to get to the beach, you will need a map the first two days probably. The beach is beautiful but beware of some plants in the water they sting and you will not be happy (sorry forgot the name) We started wearing our flip flops and water shoes in the water.
The Restaurants are all great but they're All-Inclusive is called European All-Inclusive meaning they only allow you 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch & 1 Dinner, the only way you can have seconds is by eating at their buffets I think there is only 1 of those, so for guest that would like to go to two different restaurants a dinner time for example they will get charged for 1 at the time of check out, so please keep that in mind.
The hotel will provide a bus to take your guest from the resort to Altos De Chavon which is like 15 minutes away since no golf carts are allowed in that area.
The Ceremony was held at Altos de Chavon, Amazing!! Be careful with heels since the whole place is pure cobblestone, it may be difficult to walk in, The church is not large, it gets quite hot and they only have two or three fans mounted on the wall, there is a fountain right in the middle after entering the church so for the procession if the bridesmaids and groomsmen are walking in together, they will have to separate for a brief moment, I would suggest bringing paper fans for your guests, the Priest is sooooo strict OMG!!, Warn your bridal party or anyone that will go up to read or say a passage that they will not allow them to go up at the Altar if they're not dressed appropriately (nothing revealing).
The Reception was held at one of the mansions on the other side of the resort, which is truly breathtaking but I guess that part is up to the wedding coordinator, I don't know how that works, all in all Casa de Campo is in a class of its own, your guest will surely remember your wedding.
If I can help with anything else let me know
Good Luck and Congratulations
