Hello! Any El Cid Spa & Beach Resort in Riviera Maya Brides??

Recommended Posts

Felicidades and welcome to the forum!! I've actually known several brides who have receptions back home after their destination wedding for those friends and family who can't make it - they usually have a slideshow presentation of the wedding or video clips and I think it's a fab idea :).

Eva (el Cid's WC) has been absolutely wonderful. She have been helping me work out all of the details and has been been on the ball about everything.

I only hope the ceremony goes as well as all the planning has gone, and I am confident that it will.

The rooms were reasonably priced for our guests as well. We went through destinationweddings.com to book the package and coordinate travel for everyone.

I just did a site visit and I would echo what Liz said. They do have onsite photographers but Eva did say they allow outside photographers too. My family has a home right there in Puerto Morelos so I am familiar with the town and location. I saw some great photo opportunities at the resort and around town for a day after or TTD session.

hi Carmen,

 

welcome to the site!

 

congrats on your upcoming wedding and happy planning!!

 

we're having an AHR so we can celebrate with friends and family when we get back who can't come out with us....it's costing us a lot more but I wouldn't have it any other way :)

Hi H-Town Liz, I'm trying to get more info on El Cid, but there doesn't seem to be a lot of information from brides who had a wedding here. Can you give any insight to your experience? Specifically, I have concerns that there isn't much around El Cid to do and the resort seems small (only one pool - did your people get bored?)

Lastly, is the beach/sea as bad as people say it is?

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
    • 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.
