Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

I need to vent!! My fiance and I are staying 11 nights but have now added one more to make it a total of 12 nights. Through my TA we received a free guest room for every 5 booked. Our parents decided to put that free room towards our extra night. My TA just told me that the hotel may make us change our room for the last night to a regular guest room (fiance and I have an upgraded room). I am soooo MAD!! We booked a bunch of rooms and are staying many nights! I think that is ridiculous if they don't let us keep our room one more night!! The manager said he would let the TA know as it gets closer to the wedding! I am very upset by this!

That's perfect!
Laura...did you bring your own table overlays and sashes for the chairs? I am not sure what I should do. I hear they have plain colors.

Okay, there is hope. Yesterday, I was very upset ..during my conversation with Ana the phone became disconnected and she didn't call me back. However, this morning after a waiting 3 weeks she finally came through and answered my questions through email. There is hope for everyone!

All I can say is THANK GOODNESS for you ladies, this site and this thread. I'm usually more of a lurker than a poster but I can't tell you how much useful information that I have been able to decipher from your posts. If it weren't for this site and all the "Ana-info" that I have been able to read up on I think I would have lost my mind long ago. Anyway just thought I would come out of the the shadows and say Thanks and Happy Friday :-)

 

Cheers,

Melissa

I'm still waiting for her to send me the contract and take payment. She emailed me confirming my date and time, letting me know the security deposit. I emailed her back asking should I just send my VISA in the email, call, wait for a wedding contract to fill it in and fax it back and .... nothing. That was 3 weeks ago. I just hope my verbally confirmed date and her not asking for my payment yet doesn't effect one another. I think I'm going to call Mexico again today I guess :-s

I know in the end it will all work out it is just hard to stay positive when everything feels like it is not working.

I wish I was in Mexico swinging at the bar drinking a very strong drink. lol
It'll be fine - maybe you shouldn't wait for the Mexican swing bar for that stiff drink though LOL

Hang in there! grouphug.gif Group hug! I'm so sorry you're having so many issues! I know in the end everything is going to turn out so well for you - but hang in there.

What kind of dress are you looking for? Do you have an image in your mind? maybe we can help you find a designer!

I also had this experience. She did, however, email me a document so I could fax my deposit. I did so about a week and a half ago and am waiting for funds to be withdrawn. No contract yet...

Like I said in a pp. THANK GOODNESS for this site b/c otherwise I would seriously be like wth lol Seeing the beautiful weddings from recent brides as well as realizing that everyone is pretty much going thru the same thing has seriously calmed me down period. Weddings are their business and they seem to pull them off fairly flawlessly so I'm officially chilling out LOL I have the emails with her confirming my day and time in case of any mishaps on her part - if you don't want to take my money right away ... I'm not going to fight you LOL

I have the same feelings. After seeing some of the beautiful weddings and reviews I am a lot more relaxed. It took almost 4 months from my original email to get the contract and deposit back to them so I was pretty worried too but this site has really helped put my mind at ease. I also found the companies doing my photo/video and ceremony decor from this website! woot2.gif

    • 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.
