Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

Menu question.  so i finally got an email from Ana to start my planning process and she sent me the Gold menu options, which im not too impressed with.  but isnt there a rule that if you have over forty people then you have to have a buffet?  I had figuired this whole time on the buffett and I remember reading reviews saying how good it was. 

Does anyone know what the buffet choices are?  was it caribean and/or BBQ?  i cant remember.  If anyone has the menu options could you please email them to me?  ulochiel@gmail.com

 

Thanks!

How is everyone getting their guests to the resort that is not going through APPLE vaca's...etc.? 

 

I have guests coming on Weds, Thurs AND Friday and we have to set up an account with Cancun Transportation.... They say we can set up a website and the guests can pay for their transportation via the website.  I am wondering if anyone else has done this or knows about it?  It seems like such a hassle but taxis are not allowed at the airport to pick passengers up.

In response to my own question from a few days ago:

 

Leah, upgrades do not apply in photos. You can add one package to the 50 or 36 photos package you already have (ultimate or love) and at the end you will have the amount of photos whatever package you choose plus the ultimate/love package photos. The reason for this is that you are not paying for a one hour coverage when you get an ultimate or love package, you are getting a lot of different things for less because they are all included in the wedding package so the price you see at the wedding price list does not have anything to do with the ultimate or love which are packages that the resort offers you.

Any recent brides have any more reviews on DJ Mauricio?  Is it worth using him for $300 an hour (and sending him or downloading all the songs we want) or are we better off just getting the equipment for $180 an hour and downloading stuff ourselves?

 

Thoughts?

Personally, we are going with the equipment and technician for the 180/hr - I hear the tech is great and will announce and fade in and out songs.  we are so picky with our music that there was no way we were going to have a random DJ dictate our reception.  Just an opinion.   It will be tedious downloading and making playlists but I think in the end it will be worth it!

I think we are doing the same but the our issue is we leave Tue & our playlist isn't done!!!!  I just cannot pay $280.  an hour plus 11% tax for a dj that the resort picked for me.  Seems crazy but I am afraid the reception will not flow well.

I say just start adding whole CD's on to your IPOD now if you are leaving Tuesday- Bob Marley's greatest hits are always a favorite- especially on the Beach!  :)

    • 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
