We are only having 25 people but with us changing to the pearl package and they said we would still get the 100 per hour price for the blue lagoon it is saving us about 200 and we get more thing that we wanted with the pearl package. I am not tring to argue with you I just think it is odd that we are kinda doing the same thing and we are both quoted two different things. I already had a price breakdown for me, we agreed to it and I do not see how they could change it back if we have proof from the email... I just wanted to let you know.

I do not feel like you are arguing. I think you got lucky. I am happy for you. In my earlier post I simply cut and pasted the email Nina had sent me explaining the package differences. I was just sharing info. I wish you the best.

I signed on for the sapphire package about 2 weeks ago and it was 1800. Im confused with all the prices. We will have a good of about 30ish people and I guess I dont really care if I have a seperate receptions so I beleive that the sapphire package would be the best. but it is an additional $20 a person after 8 to have dinner with other guests?

The extra $20/pp covers the cost of champagne, larger cake, and setup.

I booked  the Sapphire package too, for $1800.  I'm a little confused about the charges.  The resort is all inclusive, does that mean there is additional charge, for the guests that are staying on the resort to join in a reception?  Is this for a private reception or for a semi private?

There is hidden fees of $20.00 per person after the allowed 8 people...which i find funny, cause we all have to get a min number of 10 to get the flight deals !!!!!!!!!!! sorry for the small vent.

But yes there are fees for both the ceremony, and the reception dinner. if you go with a semi private dinner, you have to go into the restaurant with other guests, if you go with a private dinner than there is a cost per head...at which time you will get a menu choice.

 

If you were thinking about a beach reception dinner you will have to have a min number of 50 people, if you go to my photo album, i have pictures of the BLUE LAGOON (which is where we are doing our private reception dinner)

 

If i can offer any advice, keep all you contact e-mails with your W/C...just so you have something to go back on!

Thanks for the clarification. I have been waiting for the wedding coordinator to respond to my email.  How did you find the Blue Lagoon? I didn't see it listed on the fiesta website. I heard of another location called Poseidon, do you know what that is? With the extra charges, $20 pp only covers the ceremony? There is an additional $45 pp for a private reception? Is there a fee for a private reception in addition to the $45pp?

 

When are you getting married, We are on April 12, 2012.

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
