Majestic Colonial Info

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies!  My name is Jess and my fiance and I are thinking about getting married at the Majestic Colonial in June 2013.  I know we have plenty of time to start planning and decide on a resort but I need a little bit of help...

 

I REALLY REALLY REALLY want to get married here... however, my fiance is a little concerned about how much it will cost our guests to join us and stay for the week.  If ANYONE has info on what group rates ended up costing for you & your guests that would be very helpful.  I am trying my hardest to convince him... so some solid numbers would be helpful. :)  

 

We also have a few of our nieces and nephews coming... do kids under any certain age stay free here?  The oldest kid there would be 6.

 

Thanks for all the help and I can't wait to here what all of you have to say!

 

~Jess

jess4u - My fiance and I have been looking at the Majestic as well. We will be getting married on 12/12/12 and the rates we were quoted for the lead in room (junior suite) was 1480.00 for 7 nights/8days and that is for 2 people but no airfare. I will be having my grandson there as well and I believe as long as the child is under 2 there is no charge. Above that age I am not sure if they charge full price or not.We are trying to keep our guests rates per person with airfare for the 7 nights at about 1500. I know some people think that is still pricey but when you take into consideration it includes all your food and beverages for the week it actually is a great rate. Cruises end up costing you more and then you still have to pay for your alcohol.

Asiamarie-

 

Thanks for the info.  I think $1480 for 2 people for 7 nights/ 8 days is a great price.  Did you use a travel agent or was that the quote from the wedding coordinator from the Majestic Colonial?

Asiamarie-

 

One more question I thought of... can people book less than 7 nights and still get that same rate only pro-rated or is that rate only if they book 7 nights? Thanks for answering all of these questions!  It's so nice being able to ask women who have already gone through this stuff.  Since my fiance and I aren't getting married for 2 more years, the Majestic Colonial won't start booking for 2013 until January.  I am trying to get all my research done now that way when January comes around I can request the day we are looking at and get things in motion.

I used a travel agent and I was told that if people stayed for a shorter amount of time that they would be adjusted. You also are able to book further ahead of time if you use a travel agent. Because our date is 12/12/12 and we talked to the travel agent and had rates in the beginning of March. I also was able to book my wedding date in March with Majestic. You should already be able to do that as well. We have everything all set but are still unsure if we are staying at the Majestic not because we dont't like it but because we might be able to have a family friend get better rates for us another place. I have some information from the wedding coordinator at the Majestic if you would like me to send the information to you just give me your email address.

Hope this helps

Anyone have a picture of the basic ceremony site?  I have been given the link to all the different set up pictures but I was hoping to see a picture from a "real" bride as to what it looked like.  I don't want to bring too much decor but I also don't want to be upset when I get there!!!  Any help would be great

    • 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.
