Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

I remember someone saying EACH lantern is 10.00 - so Im thinking what she means by "tower" is 6 or 7 lanterns on one "tower" which would make sense if it is 10.00 per latern.  Correct me if i am wrong? I am not reserving any of the lighting until we go down there.  I think its easier to haggle pricing when you are sitting in front of them.

I too am now stressing a bit about what to do for a DJ.......uhhhhh, only 59 days left and I'm at a loss as to what to do for music at this point...

 

Does anyone know if any of these DJ's still include the cold fireworks??? I would hate to hear that the new DJ's have done away with this or are now charging a crazy price for it!!!

That does make sense!  I should have figured the whole tower wouldnt have been so cheap.  oh well.

Whoa thats awesome thank you!! How did you find that dreams had a registry??? Have you used it yet?? ANd when is your wedding again?

 

THanks!

 

@Sharon- Thank you to for the honeyfund.com referral....I saw that but wasnt sure exactly how it worked if if anyone has used it before. But very helpful.

We're thinking of doing the Dreams Registry and maybe a small registry at Bed Bath & Beyond, for those who don't want to do the online thing. My fiance and I are on the same boat too- bought a house last year-and really don't need more bath towels and coffee mugs : )

 

I also figured it couldn't hurt to have a little birdie drop hints on the family (the little bird being my FMIL, lol) that perhaps cash would be the most useful gift, since we're paying for the entire thing ourselves and already live together.

 

Even though its a dw and def way cheaper than a traditional wedding, costs are still adding up and a litte extra help in that dept would be wonderful!

Hi ladies. Just got back from my wedding which was 4/22/11. I see there have been some issues with the DJ. Let me be the first to say that I used DJ Mauricio and he was great. He played everything we wanted took requests all night long and my guests had an absolute blast. You should be more concerned with the sound technician if anyone plans on using him for your ceremony music. He does not speak a lick of English so word to the wise....keep the music simple.

 

Veronica was my wedding coordinator and she was fabulous! It even rained 45 minutes into my reception and we had to be moved to the ballroom but we were fortunate enough to have beautiful weather all through the ceremony and all through our pictures, first dances and cake cutting. DJ Mauricio even stayed an extra hour free of charge because of the move we had to make to the ballroom.

That's probably correct b/c each tower has 6 lanterns and each lantern cost 10 each.

 

By the way, l just found out today that Deco Cancun is not approved with Dreams any longer.  I have a contract with Deco now I am not sure what to do. 

 

Freakin so inconsistent at the Resort.

Her answer:  

The rent of this kind of lights is $60usd each tower

Really???  $60   Each that's ridiculous.  since I KNOW I read $10 somewhere.  Am I remembering my info wrong?  Does anyone rember who's review it was that mentioned they rented these from Dreams?

    • 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
