Prices on Paradisus Punta cana

Recommended Posts

I really like paradisus Punta Cana because of the decorations that are beautiful BUT I just received the prices for the package that I like and its $3,400 for 20 people without inlcuding the alcohol....and for each additional In-house guest is $80.00 plus $16.00 for the alcohol per person... so that’s $ 96 dollars per person…..

 

Can this be possiblehuh.gif

 

If so please send me information on other resorts that are as beautiful as paradisus but doesn't cost as much as paradisus…

We didn't use a package. We did everything a la carte (they have a price list they should send you on this if you don't already have it). We also didn't have to pay for the open bar b/c they failed to quote us that cost in our planning emails, so we were lucky on that (they tried to tack it on but I had all of our email correspondence with us, so they honored the quoted rates in the emails).

 

Also, we brought all of our own decorations and kept things really simple. The flowers and decorations are sssooo expensive at the resort. We brought all of that and saved a TON of money that way. And it was just as beautiful.

 

Have you taken the time to read through the threads on BDW?

 

Here is a link to my last post that should be helpful for you, and it has links to pictures from our ceremony and reception so you can see it was still perfect even without all of the expensive decorations. Like I said, we brought our own. I made the place cards for the meals and showed the WC how I wanted the centerpieces to look and then they did it all and it was at no charge.

The link to my Wedding Album has the best pics of our decorations, etc, but just a heads up that it will take a bit of time for all of the pictures to download.

 

I hope that helps! Good Luck and CONGRATS!

ambeato, i'm sort of in the same boat as you, only i've already paid the deposit so have no choice. >< I don't fully regret it, b/c it IS a beautiful resort and from foxytv's pics, the gazebo and everything look amazing. It's just sooo expensive. For us and for our guests.

 

foxytv, we've already signed the contract and said that we were going with the aqua packages. do you think they'll let us choose a la carte instead? that *might* be cheaper, as we do not need a lot of the extras. As we get closer to the date I may be msging you more about how you made the decorations and stuff if you don't mind! :P i LOVED the set up of your wedding, and if it saves money, that's even better. thanks in advance!

Linda - I never signed a contract, but I would think you could make the changes if you do it soon. My guess is the contract really just confirms that you won't be backing out of the whole DW. I found going a la carte was WAY less expensive. And I used the DIY threads on BDW for inspiration in order to come up with things to do on my own that would add pizazz and yet not cost a lot of $$. I think the simplicity of our set-up worked perfectly for us - but of course everyone's tastes are different. I'm happy to help. Pretty much details of everything I did are in my threads.

 

You will need to search for my Planning Thread but that has a lot more info on things I made and brought.

Hi there -  I was hoping to get married in PPR but am now leaning towards PPC.   PPR charges you for anything you bring into the resort (30%) - does PPC not charge that if you bring your own decor etc?

My fiance and I just decided on the Paradisus Punta Cana for our wedding.  We chose the "Chill Out Chic" package for 24 people (http://www.paradisus.com/romance-weddings-thechill.php).  It includes the ceremony, a 1 hour cocktail reception (open bar) and a 3 hour sit down dinner reception (open bar) for $3500.  I'm not sure where you are getting your information about alcohol not being included...  Have you talked to Lauren Harder, the Romance Travel Specialist?

 

Hope this helps!

    • 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
