Location, Location.???.. HELP!!!

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I apologize if there is already a thread on this (new to forum) but I'm struggling with our DW location?

We're planning Feb/March 2011 wedding and although we've narrowed it down to Panama, Cuba or DR we're having a hard time finding a resort.

The constant nice weather in Panama is a plus but I've heard mixed reviews about the Royal Decameron. My fiance and I love Cuba but the weather is an issue.

Any suggestions on resorts, either ones you've been to on holidays or actual weddings?

Thank you,

Unfortunately, I've never been to these locations but my suggestion is to look through Tripadvisor and other general hotel review sites (as sometimes there are wedding reviews hidden in there). I also asked around to all my friends. Although many of them didnt have information, I did talk to THEIR friends - some of whom had destination weddings - and got really great recommendations. Finally - I would call up travel agents that specialize in these hotels - many of them know the hotels very well and can answer your questions directly.


Good luck!

We went to Punta Cana last February and the weather was gorgeous. It was really hot but not too humid, it didn't rain once and except for a few windy days everything was perfect. I also have a co-worker who took a trip to Panama a few years ago and she's still talking about it- she swears it was the best trip she's ever done. Hope this helps!

Varadero is still pretty cool in February, but I've been to Holguin, Cuba, in February and it was really nice (Holguin is more south). We decided on the DR though because I've never been there.


Good luck planning and welcome to the forum!

Thank you for all the great tips! I've been a regular on Tripadvisor lately! haha.

I think we've got it narrowed down to Panama or DR. (still finding the best rate for the 3 or 4 resorts we like).


Renee, the Majestic Colonial is actually one of our 3or 4 in DR we liked, it is beautiful!


All the best in your plannings also!

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
