Hi ladies! My fiancé and I are confirmed at the Jellyfish for June 25th, 2013, though we havent't sent in a deposit yet. I've kinda fallen in love with the place since last June but we kept looking elsewhere. We almost settled on Roatan Island, Honduras but after speaking with our guests, we came back to the Jellyfish and we're hoping to stay at Dreams Palm Beach but it depends on cost. I've been conversing with Mayte for a while now and turn around time for emails has never been more than 2 weeks so be patient ladies, she really knows what she's doing. She really wants to give all her brides as much personal time as possible but there only 24 hours in a day and due to her high demand right now, she's just been completely swamped and she has a daughter as well so just trust her. She hasn't failed a single bride yet and I certainly don't expect her to start failing now. Happy Planning!

lol I think she made a typo, it's probably 2014. 

 

So I spoke to my fiance about having it on that Monday and he doesn't like the idea. I emailed Huracan cafe on Thursday and again last night to see if they have June 29 available. In the meantime, she sent me the bank info to put a deposit, but did not tell me how much the deposit was lol.  I feel so bad for how busy she is, she needs an assistant!

And the bank deposit, based on what she told me, is a minimum of $500 but you can deposit however much you want after that. I have also contacted Huracan Cafe several times and they take longer to get back to me than Mayte.

Ok ladies, I called Huracan Cafe today. Apparently, they are like fresh off the boat Italians and barely speak English. I got a different email address from them and sent them an email asking for pricing and availability. My fiance is very against a Monday wedding, so I'm going to see how much Huracan is and if they're available June 29. 

 

I know Katya recommended Huracan, but has anyone else heard anything about them? I would like to speak to a past bride or other brides who are planning it

Hi Ladies! I am planning on having a DW in October of 2014. I'm in the early stages of planning. I didn't really think to look into other restaurants around the area to have the ceremony and reception. I am planning on staying at NOW Larimar. Is it possible to have a ceremony & reception dinner for under $2,000 at the Jellyfish or Huracan Cafe? I plan on 15 people total including the bride and groom. If any one has any pricing info I'd appreciate it, my email is autumn8815@gmail.com

    • 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
