That just seems pretty high to me, because when I called the hotel directly it was much cheaper then that. I got a quote for 4 nights a thurs arrival and monday departure it was $1179 per couple for the standard garden view room. I don't know it might be cheaper for my guests to go through the hotel directly.
ohhh love Heather - you'll be so so so happy! Keep in mind that she price matches, so if there's some crazy sale a few months before your trip she'll rebook all your guests (that booked with her) at that lower price...
We gave people the option - we just put a little insert in our save the dates that said "we've chosen to book our travel with..., please call her at.... if you'd like to book through her" I'd say most of the older guests are all using Heather, most of our friends are booking on their own. Although I've had several conversations with Heather about the complaints on trip advisor about checking in and she said that Berman Travel has a really good relationship with Dreams so her clients only experience upgrades and if they try to pull anything with people she's booked, we can call her from Mexico and she'll deal with it. Which made me feel a lot better!

We're September of this year, which is shoulder season and historically a slow season for the resort - so we're paying I believe 2300 for 7 nights. My future brother in law and his girlfriend did 5 nights and is paying 1200 (Oceanview).

Welcome to Facebook | Facebook

Here are some amature photos that one of my guests took.

Also, for those of you using an outside photographer but have the package that includes the resort photographer, make sure to schedule a separate session during your visit. Here are some photos that they took the day after the wedding.

Yes you can :-) I think the only thing they were commenting on this week was that fake petals couldn't be scattered on the actual beach (as decor or by a flower girl) b/c of the environmental hazard it causes. Other than that you're good to go.

Its a wedding so my feeling is it SHOULD be a good time :-) Our reception is on the pool deck/beach so hopefully we are far enough removed from the guest rooms, facilities etc that noise from our peeps, dj .... won't be an issue.

I have an out there question that one of my guests have asked me. Does anyone know if they have wash clothes aka face clothes provided? We have stayed at a bunch of 5*'s down south and for some reasons they seems to provide every other kind of towels in the rooms but face clothes sometimes LOL

For those already married that used the resort photographer.... did you upgrade from the package? All of the packages say the photographer is there for 1.5 hours.... there is no way that is enough time. Did you add extra hours? Ana told me it would be $250 per hour to add time.... is this what you didhuh.gif THANKS!!!

    • 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!!
