Welcome to the forum, and congrats on your engagement! :) There are SO many options in RM. The best advice I can give you is to NOT consider every single one of them or you WILL go insane! Make a list of what's important to you (large or small resorts, price range, family friendly, etc) and then get a TA who can advise you on the best resorts to match your criteria.

hi SummerDawn!

 

I completely understand how you feel. I felt the same way a month ago. We are going to have a small wedding with on child....so it had to be a resort that allowed kids. We ended up picking Dreams Riviera Cancun. I liked that they had premium alcohol a swimup bar, no reservations for the restaurants and a heated pool. Also the rooms look pretty and the beach looks nice. They have a fb page if you want to check it out.

 

To help you decided I would call a couple different travel agents and get their opinions. Also I looked on expedia just to look at hotel pics and then went to trip advisor and read TONS of reviews. It was a lengthy process but worth it!!! good luck to you:)

I agree, picking the resort is completely the hardest part! I really had trouble deciding on a location but for me it came down to the wedding packages that the hotel had to offer. The Riu chain is great in terms of for families and they have great wedding packages....so far no complaints anyway.

 

Good luck!

    • 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.
