I think the grand section is for members only, but I'm not 100% sure.

I have a question about the room block- I see that most people do it in either the sunrise or nizuc side...why doesn't anyone do the grand section?  Need some advice!

Actually I asked my Miami contact and she said you don't have to be a member, you can do a room block there, and its the same rates thats why I was wondering why I haven't heard people say they are doing one there

I think ppl don't choose it b/c its kind of far from everything. That's my impression. I heard its newer and nicer though!

We did not over plan so we just went with the flow. I am so glad we did becuase perfect is boring. We have memorable moments that I am so happy for. Claudia was my coordinator and I promise she handled everything that I forgot to handle without me even having to tell her. I told DH we owe her our first born lol. Melissa and Johnathan from La Luna were our photographers and they are  amazing to work with. I actually wanted them to stay and party with us. I have so  much info to give you girls but I wont do my review until next week. If you are leaving sooner you can always PM me for info.

 

Thank you girls for all your help!!

 

-Mrs. Davis

Very few of the rooms on the Grand side have ocean views and the Grand section doesn't have a large lobby with lots of restaurants. There's only one restaurant for dinner on the Grand side.

 

Also, it is quite a long walk to everything if you're on the Grand side.  We had a block in the Sunrise section and on one of my runs, I measured the distance with my GPS watch from our room (which was in one of the farthest buildings on the Sunrise side) to the main pool of the Grand side, & it was exactly one mile. 

 

Everytime we go we stay in the Sunrise section.  The rooms there are a little newer, they have hammocks on the balcony, and my family prefers the bar area of the Sunrise lobby over the Nizuc lobby bar area.  But when we go this summer, I've requested to stay in only certain buildings (closer to the Nizuc side), so we don't end up on the far side of Sunrise again.  If you do request a block in Sunrise, I would look at the map & request the buildings that are more central.

Thank you for your help!  Do you know which buildings are more centrally located in the Sunrise section?

We stayed in the Grand Section and loved it. We had guest in both the Sunrise and Nizuc and DH and after seeing their rooms in comparison to ours we both agreed that it was totally worth the golf cart rides to be in the Grand Section. The rooms are huge (very important when you have a lot of wedding crap), the bathrooms are large and the balconies are GREAT!. We actually did have a view of the ocean as well.

 

We were in the first bldg in the grand section so the Nizuc lobby was not far from us. I was close to my gazebo. And our balcony overlooked the caribbean terrace where we whad our reception. Also because the grand section  is small the staff gets to know you really quickly. If the bus was not there when we came down the stairs Rogelio would immediately put us on a golf cart to our location. DH and I both agree that when we come back we will stay in the grand section and play in the sunrise section.

OK Girls, I can't believe I am leaving tomorrow! I want to thank all the brides on here for helping me with all my questions and for the support that only another bride could give. I am super excited for my wedding on Sunday and already thinking about how the week will fly by. I am going to have my cousin take all the random pics so I can write a review to pay it forward and to help future MP brides!

The forecast is kind of bumming me out but what can I do.  I'll try to check in during the week with updates!

    • 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.
