Dreams Riv Cancun vs Paradisus Riv Cancun

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I'm trying to decide bwtn Dreams Riv Cancun and Paradisus Riv Cancun ------- Any tips and help is appreciated! We hope to book our date this week (hoping for November) and this back and forth is killing me! We're inviting about 200 people and hope for 75 to show so we need a bigger resort and kid friendly (just in case).

 

Ana at DRC got back to me with a little info but has not responded yet for a date availability or my question about a Jewish ceremony there.

Is anyone on this having a Jewish ceremony there?

 

Paradisus hasn't even answered my emails or RFP's this week and I might have to call tomorrow....any ideas what's going on?

 

All info is appreciated!!!!!

We are getting married at Dreams RC. I did a site visit and thought the resort was beautiful. Everything was so new and modern. We did walk down to Paradisus also. Just from the outside, Dreams seemed a little nicer but probably only because it was new. However, it is a pretty small resort. I think Paradisus is bigger. Though, if everyone books early, that might be kind of fun to know about 1/4 of the guests. I would just make sure they book early if you do go with Dreams RC. Good luck in your choice.

So funny - FI and I are in the same debate b/t the same two resorts. I'm leaning toward Paradisus, although its more expensive for guests. It seems from the Dreams RC thread they're having some issues with pricing on the wedding. Everyone keeps telling me I'll feel better when we have a place and a date - which we will hopefully soon!

Did they ever get back to you regarding having a Jewish wedding? I have asked this question to all the resorts I am looking at and not one has answered that question. Thanks.

To answer your question about Jewish ceremonies in all of RM (and most of the East coast of Mexico) - the resorts themselves do not have Jewish officiants. They will refer you directly to the only Rabbi in the area, and you will have to contact him directly, however he only officiates Jewish (Non Interfaith) and he will requires Kosher food. Most RM brides import a Jewish officiant, if they wish to have a Jewish wedding.

Dreams said they can bring in a Rabbi and Paradisus hasn't gotten back to me yet - either way, we are going to have a Jewish wedding and if we have to ship one in, we're going to do it.

    • 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.
