Marriott vs Mayan Palace places to stay???

Recommended Posts

I am trying to figure out still where my guests are going to stay. Has anyone stayed at the Mayan Palace PV or the Marriott Casamagnahuh.gif I am getting married at the Mayan...but I didn't check out the rooms when I was there. I was so focused on the wedding ceremony.

 

I would appreciate any reviews...I am debating between the two hotels...the prices are really similar. The Marriott is a little cheaper.

 

Thanks,

Amy R.

Amy, I stayed once in Marriot Casamagna and its a beautiful hotel, with excellent service, its very close to the Mayan and I think with much better to offer than Mayan and others in the Marina.

 

My WC told me the that from the Marina hotels he recommends first the Westin and then the Marriot been followed by the rest of them.....

Thank you Edna...I am just debating if we should pay more to stay at the Mayan because we are getting married there.

 

Also...if I go with the Mayan...my guests will have to pay the hotel directly...I am worried about the costs they will be charged on their credit card to change dollars to pesos.

 

Have you noticed any costs to your credit card when you used it in Mexicohuh.gif

Hi Amy

 

since my cards are from Mexico I dont have that kind of issues. I dont know but I havent seen any charges when I go to USA, so probably its something with your card or bank??

My guests and I will be staying at the Marriott... it's beautiful and in a perfect location (near the marina - our wedding will be at Las Caletas).

 

However... I'm having a really hard time getting the Marriott to communicate with me regularly. Every time I turn around, they have passed my account to someone new. First I emailed Patricia Haro, then I talked on the phone once and emailed once with Marcela Tellez. Next they had me on the phones with someone in the U.S. - Debi Cannon (and a couple times with someone in Debi's office). She passed my account to Valeria. Now it's Rosario. We don't even have a contract yet and I'm on my fifth contact person. It's a bit frustrating. I'm not a crazy, high maintenance bridezilla. I just want a block of rooms, and a hospitality suite the night before the wedding with a cash bar and a veggie tray. For goodness sake... this shouldn't be that difficult.

 

If I don't have a contract soon I am going to have to look elsewhere... I'll keep you posted about how it goes.

I plan on getting married at the Mayan and staying at the Westin. If your guests don't consume a lot of beverages (mine probably won't) then a non-AI could work. Since I've told my guests about the switch from an AI to a non-AI I've been pleasantly surprised by many of their reactions - they love that they won't be "held down" at the hotel and can get out to explore more restaurant wise.

 

Sorry I got off your subject a little bit cheesy.gif

If it's strictly between the Mayan and Marriott I would stay at the Marriott because I've read not so good reviews about the rooms at the Mayan on Trip Advisor.

 

Hope this helps! :)

I would say the Marriott based on how much my brother loved it when he stayed there. Oh, and the restaurant owner who set up my WD said the Marriott is the nicest all around hotel in PV(location, service, food, quality of rooms, etc.) I didn't stay there though.

    • 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
