Anyone having problems with Grand Palladium Jamaica?

Recommended Posts

oh my. I was married ther in August and I'm soo sad to hear they still haven't gotten things together. I think I ran into about 3 coordinators the whole time I was planning my wedding. But fortunately everything did turn out great. There were a few problems but they were all resolved. Wishing you the best of luck with planning your wedding at GPJ!!!

Thanks for the reviews I am really looking forward to seeing the resort, I have spoken to Nina on a few occassions looking forward to it. Ladies getting married in April or after this year what florist or photographer are you using for your wedding, what size weddings are you having?

I am using Sungold Associates. They have a lot of different options to pick from and their associates have pretty good rates. Paula is great and will work with your budget. I know they are shooting a lot of weddings here in the next couple months. We already have 50 people booked. Our travel agent booked us through Applevacations.com. They have great prices right now. The resort uses Tai Floral for flowers. From what I have seen so far they are expensive. I may end up going to a wholesale florist in the area and getting the flowers through them. I know each package comes with a couple flower choices but not many. If you want flowers for the reception you have to upgrade and the extra cost is a lot.

Hello GPJ Brides and Brides to be! I'm interested in knowing when your wedding dates are, if you have picked a location (beach or gazebo..) and for what time is your wedding?!

 

I'll go first!

Hey guys I am in Jamaica now its beautiful the people are very friendly I will be meeting with Nina the wedding manager on Saturday to discuss things and look around. Thanks for the heads up I am also looking at Sungold or Michael Chen. Bye got to go will tell you about it when i get back. By the way my planner is great you ladies should do this bridesmaid service its an inexpensive planner that goes to the resort and finds out what is going on with your wedding takes onsite photos for u of the area checks with your wedding planner at the hotel every month she keeps them on their toes and its cheap. Before i came here she did all the ground work for me its great, she spoilt me at the airport. Tell u everything later Bye

Hi, My sister got married there this past June. She mentioned that she had trouble reaching the WC. HOwever, once we arrived three days before the wedding, the WC was at her beck and call. The wedding was absolutely beautiful and super romantic. The WC went above and beyond. My dad actually went back to the hotel to get more money to tip her. The only problem we had at the hotel was the swimming pool. All the tiles are coming up at we all cut our feet during the week. Just be careful.

But the main event, the wedding was so nice, I loved how they do their weddings!!!

From what everyone has said, it sounds like things work out when you get there.

 

I'm using SunGold as well - Paula has been so nice to deal with and her pics are amazing.

 

I'm coming up on 3 months....I really can't wait!!!

    • Dental care would be very challenging when you are invited to a wedding. Everyone needs a clean and white teeth. I was also looking for a dental clinic in Toronto but all of the Doctor were busy. This was when I found Walk in Dental Clinic in Yonge Street just south of Steels. Since they were open until midnight, I did not have to leave my work early to get to my dentist. This dental clinic used dental veneers for my teeth and at the wedding everyone was asking me how I created my smile very nice.  The fact that they accept emergency patients for dental care is also very good. before the wedding, I recommend using this dentistry. If you need emergency dental care in Toronto visit Dr Karimi and Walk in dental clinic for their great patient care and service. 
    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
