Dreams Riviera Cancun - Brides post here (new thread)

Recommended Posts

Hi,

if you are considering Seaside I would just do the pool deck which has a lot more room for the dance floor, buffet etc. we had a sound system, room to dance, buffet dinner (carribean buffet) and we brought a few decorations- table covers which made a huge difference. The only reason to rent a restaurant is if you want to have the wedding inside.

I actually didn't even get a receipt back. Was told since the transaction had cleared my book, the date was confirmed. As long as that's all it takes to book it, ok. Thanks! :)

Chrissy,

 

What measurements did you use for the table covers and where did you get them? I also saw you had decorations for the chairs - did you buy those as well or did they provide that for you? Thanks! :)

Has anyone started looking into rehearsal dinner or welcome dinner options for the restaurants? Any idea if they charge anything extra to book the entire place or if you can just walk in with your guests the evening of? Do all of them have the same guest capacity or some smaller/bigger than others? Trying to figure out the best and most budget friendly way to do this esp. considering this is an all inclusive resort and doesn't make sense to "pay" for food when the guests essentially are already paying for it. :-/ Thanks!

    • 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
