Just can't decide.. suggestions?

Recommended Posts

Thks Amarillis.

 

This resort looks absolutely beautiful! Were you satisfied with the service, food, etc? I am down to choosing this one and the Melia Varadero, but am trying to weigh the differences to make up my mind.

 

Any real complaints about this resort?

 

And for some reason I am having difficulty opening those 2 links for the wedding package that you posted, I am not sure why. The forum will not let me access them.

 

Also do you have the contact information of the wedding coordinator and if I e-mail her will she be quick to respond!!?

 

Thanks so much,

 

Jules

Yep I have the contact information for the coordinator - her name is Sandra Linares Davalos. As for speedy replies, allow a minimum of a week for a response. There are 6 ladies that work in guest relations there at the Marina Palace. They may answer you on her behalf. PM me your email address and I'll send you Sandra's email and contact info.

 

As for contacting the WC, I would suggest firming up the location etc and pricing with your TA.

 

As for the posted packages, you probably don't have enough points. A few more posts and you should be able to access them.

 

I don't have any serious complaints about the resort, we chose the Barcelo Marina Palace because we had so many children attending.

 

I suggest you read my review - (you'll see the link in my siggy) - this may answer a ton of questions that you have about the resort without going through the WC.

 

I am only too happy to help.!!!!

Hi JulesnPhil,

 

Have you made any decisions yet? I was reading your thread, and it looks like you've got lots of help from everyone! I am getting married at the Marina Palace in February/March, and am deep into planning mode :o) Amarillis posted some great photos, and she's helped me out with questions too. If you want the most recent 2009 packages (and there are 3), just PM me with your contact info and I will send them to you.

 

Happy planning!

Jenna

I just saw this thread now...I have visited all of the resorts you were debating between and have some photos and info on the wedding packages, policies, etc. Let me know if you still need some info!

I like that if you have 17 guests at the Melia Veradero, the wedding package is free. That's a pretty good deal. I know we will be having at least that, possibly more. Does this resort allow children because there will be at least 3 little ones coming along. I am also having a really hard time deciding on what resort to have our wedding at. We are thinking of Feb. 2011 (I know I am starting the planning process very early!) and I would be open to suggestions. Cost is a factor, we are on a budget. But I would like the best, most beautiful place our meager funds will allow!!

I have stayed at the Melia Varadero 3 times in the past year and I think you will be quite pleased with it. They do allow children. When I was there in September (low season) the rooms that were not is use were being re-furbished and all of the furniture replaced. Speaking to some of the staff at the resort I have heard that the are doing some renovations around the resort as well during the low season to upgrade. I might have in my computer somewhere in my computer pictures of the wedding gazebo that I could send to you. Hope this helps. (I might end up getting married there myself).

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
