    Oh I forgot to mention!! Check out Trip Advisor- I spent so much time on that site when I was choosing a hotel. I looked at every review and every picture! It was a great tool.

      At the risk of sounding like a nutjob because all I do is talk about majestic..try majestic lol. no vested interest in pimping this hotel all over the place but its just so so nice.

        If you look at tripadvisor, #7 is Grand Palladium Bavaro which is where we are getting married. They have great packages and it's a lovely resort. We expect 80 guests and are having a gazebo wedding, champagne toast, private reception (only $1000 extra) and dancing for 5.5 hours after the ceremony. Carolina is the WC and she is great. Just like the other WC she tries to respond asap, you just have to stay on top of them, if no response. We did a tour of the rooms and the spaces and it is going to be great! Other reviews of the resort and weddings were also very good.
        Good luck!

          I think that people need to stay away from trip advisor when trying to decide on a hotel, since it only adds to the confusion!! We were originally thinking Dreams Punta Cana, but now we might be going to the Iberostar Bavaro... I wish I'd just listened to my TA who told me that Dreams wedding parties are never disappointed! ugh so confused too!

            I stayed at the Edenh Real last year (not for a wedding) but it had a beautiful beach and might be able to accomodate something there. Good luck!

              I keep hearing a lot about the Grand Palladium Bavaro, but what about the Grand Palladium Palace? Is the wedding any different?

                Can you give me the web address for the Grand Palladium? The only thing that come up when I google it is trip advisor.

                Thanks

                  I am biased but the beach forsure forsure forsure is nicer at Paradisus Punta Cana vs. Dreams Punta Cana anyway. We stayed at Paradisus for our wedding which was gorgeous....well kept, lots of room, comfy well kept lounging chairs and beds. The terrace at Paradisus was half indoorish with open areas to the outside, in the main lobby area but very private.

                  We went to dreams for our second honeymoon week....we were not impressed.... dreams beach had pricklies when you walked on the sand...the ocean was filled with random coral which cut our feet so we barely went in the ocean. it was small..you look to the right you see garbage, you look to the left you see garbage and are in the middle of no where...there is no where to walk and nothing to see and KIDS!!
                  Also the terrace at Dreams is overlooking the garden area, nowhere near the ocean...actually it is right by a HUGE kids area...

                  If you send me a message with your email I can send pics...I just am not good at adding them on here! Good luck!

                    Figured it out! Don't get me wrong there are some beautiful areas at Dreams as well...here is a pictures of my favorite tree there!! Unfortunatly a vendor guy sets up his table underneath it most of the days! Click the image to open in full size.

                    but if you walk a little further that direction it looks like this

                      There is no difference in the wedding's at any of the 3 (4 if you cout royal) resort. First I told the WC we all would be staying at the Punta Cana side, but then decided to go with the royal for I and the future husband, since we are staying there, the wedding will be on the Bavaro side.
