Ocean Blue & Sand-Punta Cana

Recommended Posts

Since I am newly switching to Ocean Blue & Sand, I had a few questions that some of you might be able to answer:

 

1. Is alcohol included in the wedding packages?

 

2. Is tax and gratuity included in the wedding packages?

 

3. How many weddings does Ocean Blue & Sand allow in one day?

 

4.  The Sand Extravaganza package says hosts 30 guests, but at the bottom it says something about 40 maximum?  Anyone know what this is about? I am planning on having at least 50.

JB, when u got a group rate for hotel, did u work with the TA or u went directly to the resort? i normally book with Applevacations, or my local TA who books it with apple. I called my TA, and asked about weddings....and hotels... she didn't seem to be very interested, because she knows it will be a hasstle with a group of ppl i think....But anyhow, i always do the legwork myself for any of my trips... Cant wait for the prices for april to come out...even thought im nervous to see the hight numbers$$$.

 

MsClarke,  i belive the alcohol is included. What resort did you plan on originally?

Skygirl I did the legwork myself, too and asked a couple different TAs for a quote then I went with the best rate. I also tried to go through the resort but they advised me to go through a TA for the best deal... which I thought was kinda odd... Anyway, when I first started this process I found that not all TAs are excited to have a potential group clients, another odd thing for me-- I mean wouldn't they want to earn their commission in bulk? lol.

 

MsClarke, Alcohol is included in some of the package-- I'm only certain of the two I'm considering sand extravaganza and ocean romance. Taxes are included, I think when you add on guests that's when you have to apply the tax rate. That's all the info I got for your questions. Hope that helps!

Skygirl, I think I've seen it mentioned here before but for the most part it's been Yinette that I've seen... I'm sure they do it as a team, I don't see why they wouldn't. There are 2 reviews on here, I'll see if they mentioned Ada or Yinette...

I just talked to apple vacation and here is what they say:march 18-25, $220per room/dowble occupancy. As far as airline schedule, they said date,has not been released yet. Ladies, do you think i will be able to get better price then $220 per room?which is $110 per person/ per night?I think Ocean Blue usually around $90 per/p/n??

I feel your pain. I'm on the same boat as you are... I have spoken to 2 WC coordinator since i started to plan my wedding. Now the first WC i had which was Julissa was GREAT... i loved her, but now i have Ada which i cant wait til she leaves because she makes everything so much harder and complicated. she has given me different prices for everything. after a few back and forth email she said that she will honor everything Julissa gave me. But I'm so over Ada that I'm just waiting for her to leave on maternity leave because i can not even talk to her.

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
