Dreams Questions - previous brides please help
Posted 05 March 2010 - 09:00 PM
But I really don't understand the difference between the resorts.... if there is a difference. Are they all around the same size? Are all of the wedding packages the same at each place? Can you hear the planes from the airport coming in at the resorts near Punta Cana International? We are looking for a place with blue water and a nice beach.
Previous brides... which resort did you choose and why? Sorry if this has already been asked (I'm sure it has some where that I haven't found yet lol). Thank you all in advance for your input!

The hotel was at capacity when we were there apparently and you'd never know it.. it's pretty big, has a huge pool and lots of chairs.
We chose this resort as our neighbours had stayed there and raved about it and their kids program.

Punta Cana apparently has the most beautiful beaches in the Dominican. So that narrowed it down to either Dreams or Dreams Palm Beach in Punta Cana. Dreams Palm Beach is newly renovated, and the rooms/restaurants look stunning! The rooms as Dreams Punta Cana aren't as modern (although the swim up rooms sound amazing). The wedding packages, as far as I can tell, are the same no matter which resort you choose.
When my fiance and I were going to wedding shows and talking to travel agents (especially those who specialize in destination weddings), they all said that Melani, the wedding coordinator at Dreams Palm Beach was amazing, and made your wedding day stress free. The wedding coordinator at Dreams Punta Cana wasn't thought of so highly, and everyone said Dreams Palm Beach is a much better choice.
We've been talking to Melani for months now, and she always responds super fast, and answers any questions we've had (no matter how stupid). She has been a tremendous help!
So... hope that helps a little!

My FI and I chose DLR for its beach, good snorkeling right off the beach and there is a PADI Dive shop on site. I will let you know what they are like; but I have heard they are fantastic.
Tiara is the wedding coordinator there and I have found that she is pretty good. Some responses take up to a couple weeks to hear back, which can be frustrating (I am always so excited to get a response). The best way to get all your questions answered in an email is to number them each with their own line. I have heard other good reviews about her from other BDW members.
Hope this helps.

We went to DLR for our honeymoon and really missed DPB, the beach wasn't as nice, and neither were the bathrooms in the preffered club! The photo's were amazing at DPB too, with such a gorgous background. We used HDC photography, they were fantastic.

As for my opinion on WC, Melanie is my fave. What's her name at DPC (Deyanira is it?) is friendly and ok. None of my brides have issues with them over there so I rarely have to get involved (which is why I'm not sure who is there now...Miguelina used to be very sweet tho). Tiara has always been my least fave and in the last few days is at the top of my sh*t list. Not nice at all via email or in person (I can only pray she's nicer to the brides when they are there).
