Adult only resort or not?

Recommended Posts

@@calgarybride2015 It may have been the resort! Or perhaps the week/time of year. I stayed at an adults only resort in Dominican Republic and since then have vowed to never stay at a family friendly resort again! loll Although there were many couples so there weren't too many wild groups, it had different parts of the resort that were quieter than others. There was a pool by the spa if you wanted silence. But by the swim up bar pool they had various activities through out the day loud music etc so it was a good balance for us. We loved it!

We decided on adults only because it was the resort where he proposed and we have visited a few times and felt confident in the quality that we would be offering our guests. I did think we might lose interest from some of our family/friends with children but they have ALL actually thanked us and cant wait for a kids free getaway. Depends on your guests I would think.

We are having the best of both.  For our ceremony we are going to Dreams Riviera and then to Secrets Maroma for our honeymoon.  We felt that we would rather have a more romantic and peaceful time for our honeymoon.

Our wedding will be at a family-friendly resort (Now sapphire) and then we're going adults-only for our honeymoon (El Dorado Casitas Royale).

We are getting married and having our honeymoon at the same resort, a family-friendly resort. We did not want to limit our guests to coming if they had children and wanted to bring them, so that was our reasoning!

We picked a resort that's family friendly but has an adults-only section. Feel like it's the best of both worlds so you can sneak away to a quieter area if you want.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
