Punta Cana Resort on a budget???

Recommended Posts

Hey Erin! We flew from Edmonton and Winnipeg, staying at the Paradisus Punta Cana for approximatly $1700/person (for double occupancy). We went in June, I'm sure prices vary during the year. But this resort is worth the money (I thought it was cheap for EVERYTHING we got!!), everything about this resort is fantastic, and our wedding was AMAZING!

OH also, we spend our second week, our "honeymoon" at the Dreams resort. In my eyes Dreams does not even compare to Paradisus Punta Cana, its much smaller, more children EVERYWHERE and the a la carts are nothing overly special. The Paradisus Punta Cana just has that WOW effect!

Thanks everyone!

We looked into majectic Colonial and it's around $2000pp. I feel WAY too bad asking people to pay that. Unfortunately the only week we can go is mid-feb so we are stuck with the high prices.

I'm going to look into a couple of those other resorts suggested....

Hi fellow Torontonian....I also wanted to book for February at the Majestic Colonial, but couldn't believe the price. I will not make my guests pay that amount to come to my wedding. February is prime time, so is March...So we decided to get married end of April, which is a nice time to travel. It's still cold and miserable here....We went with the Grand Palladium Bavaro, the price was amazing considering what we heard from the other resorts. I actually went and put money down on it today. A few friends of mine have been to the resort and loved it.....

 

Good luck...let me know what you come up with!!!

Hi Shankd,

 

Do you mind telling me what price you got? It would be intersting to see the price difference if we put it off by a couple of months!

Thanks!

Erin - I would suggest going to a resort that has more than one hotel on it - that way if you wanna stay at a more upscale one you can, while if your guests want to save money, they can stay at a different hotel in the same complex so you can still all be in the same place. I know the Barcelo has a few in one - they have Barcelo Caribe, Barcelo Palace, Barcelo Golf, Barcelo Palace Delux (they are all together and range in prices) I know the Grand Palladium has the same type of thing as well!! Good luck!! I have stayed at both of those places, if you would like pics or help let me know! :)

Hi Erin!!

 

We are from Winnipeg, and thinking of going to Punta Feb 2011, we originally thought of going in April as it is a little less expensive, however the charters only run until end of March, so you will have to add the cost of a flight to major gateway city, T.O or Vancouver ( if you are from canada) you may not be saving that much in the end...you just have to do your research.

 

so for now we are planning for Feb 2011, probably Barcelo Bavero Palace Deluxe, as your guests can opt to stay at one of the other Barcelo resorts that is within their price range, and we will be in the nice resort with a jacuzzi on our patio! lol

 

Keep me posted on what you decide!!

 

Thanks and Congrats!

I'm happy to read this! I was originally a Dreams los cabos bride (switched due to swine flu) and I was worried that Paradisus may not measure for my guests. From the sound of it, I will be totally impressed! :)

OK, I'm kinda like you in the way that price was VERY important, it didn't have to be 5 star etc. I found that the popular resorts to get married in were way to expensive to ask my guests to pay (especially in Jan/Feb high season) I ended up picking Sirenis Tropica (still a 4+ star)l, there is one other bride that I know of on this form that is getting married there too... you should check it out...

 

I figured we could upgrade for our honeymoon week to one of the more expensive ones. We are honeymooning at Dreams Punta Cana.

    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Amazon it is a paradise for shopping. I always buy from this platform, especially when I look for a present. I've already set up Amazon Pro, for advanced buyers, and for free shipping, lol. In fact, I bought a lot of different products here. I like to make beautiful gifts, and packaging means a lot to me. I usually chose all the parts of the gift and then packed them at home by myself. But recently, at the wedding of my friend, I did not have time at all and I decided to look for a service that can help me. As a result, I came across a good website where you can buy different gift baskets. jetgiftbaskets.com I bought her a Wedding Wishes gift basket, and she was very happy. This service has excellent service, as good as amazon has.
    • Peach looks nice for wedding!
