Wow that is funny! We are getting married at the chapel. Where are you getting married? Did you pick your spot for the reception? I think that's is where I'm having the toughest time!

I'm also getting married at the Gran Caribe. I was considering getting married at the Royal, but all of my guests are staying at the Gran and I just thought it would be easier that way. I've also heard the Gran's gazebo is a bit more secluded than the Royal's. If anyone's interested in knowing, the WC told me today that they charge $350 per vendor for outside vendors... so if you're thinking about getting photography, DJ etc... from outside vendors, remember to keep that in mind when planning your budget.

Bad news.... our wedding coordinator quit (or was let go) unexpectedly and now we are playing the waiting game to see who will get our account. I'm so sad because she was great! We wanted to get out invitations out (I feel like we are on the late side) but we can't until we confirm everything with the hotel. And we were also told about the $350 outside vendor fee... AH! that's crazy expensive... guess our photographer better deliver!smile41.gif

This photographer has photos of a wedding in the chapel. Find Claudia and Oscar...Winnie Vallejo :: Professional Photographer & Videographer :: Cancun
Wow... can you believe the equipment/pipes on the beach right out the window! That must have been so disappointing... that must have been when they were getting the "new beach" they advertise on the website!

FYI- if you plan on having a wedding that starts at/after 4pm there is a $400 surcharge... I'm not sure when this was introduced but it wasn't there when we booked last Sept...they better not think they are charging us that!

That wedding on the photographers website was LATE NOVEMBER 2009.

 

When I saw the pictures, I did some research about the beach. I guess the government had some problems with the resort and their way of creating/preserving the beach (stealing sand?). I read an article that basically said 1)there were unsolved legal issues with the resort and govt 2) the resort was last on the list for beach rebuilding due to legal issues 3)the resort's owners were being stubbornhuh.gif and 4) the beaches were being rebuilt as of late 2009 but they skipped the Real Resorts (both).

 

I THINK the issues were resolved and the beach recreated but I am not sure. The person who posted the article link made a vague statement about the entire beach repair (all of Cancun) would be completed before February 2010.

    • 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
