    My fiance and I have narrowed down our location choices to the Iberostar Bavaro or the Majestic Colonial. I've only been to Punta Cana once - I stayed at Dreams Punta Cana when it was still Sunscape the Beach and was not impressed. I've traveled to Mexico 3 times, Jamaica once, and the DR once - so far my favorite resorts have been the Iberostars in Riviera Maya. I am torn between going with the Ib Bavaro, which is a little older but has the Iberostar reputation of good service/staff.....or the Majestic Colonial, which is newer with a large pool but has only been around for a few years.

    The TA we talked to is more comfortable with the IB Bavaro because she has never had any complaints from her clients that travel there, but she hasn't had many clients period who have traveled to the Majestic. Can anyone who has been to both these resorts and/or been married there give me some input?

      I am getting married at the Iberostar Bavaro in April. The WC has been great answering all of my questions and getting back to me in a timely matter. We have also stayed at one of the Iberostars in Mexico as well and had a great time! It took the Majestic over 2 weeks and a couple of emails to even see if they had anything available.
      Good luck!

        I will be getting married at the Iberostar Bavaro as well! May 28th though, so my review might not be of help to you that much further along. =) I have had similar experiences with the WC, and am really looking forward to our wedding there! I've never stayed at an Iberostar, but have heard really good things about this resort. It was also more affordable for my guests, and that was a factor in the decision as well.

          When I was researhing, Iberostar was also a contender, however I ended up going with Majestic as I liked the newer resort look better. I personally didn't like the rooms at Iberostar and felt they didn't have as many upgrade options. I felt the rooms at Majestic would look better in pictures and it's a slightly smaller resort I think.

          I had friends who went to Iberostar and they loved the food there and didn't have any complaints so no matter which one you go with, both will be great

            Thanks for your input ladies. KMK and Cheshiremoon, I look forward to seeing reviews of how your weddings go at the Iberostar since there isn't doesn't seem to be as much talk about Iberostar on here as there is for Majestic!

              Im biased since im already married for 2 weeks..but majestic elegance should be a 3rd and major contender...everyone had such a blast and was soooooooo in love with the place it was worth everything..they did an insane insane job

                I agree with karenk77. I would recommend the Majestic Elegance. I stayed there with my fiance in Dec and we loved it. We are going back this Dec to have the wedding there. I have traveled all over and this hotel is by far the best. It is absolutly beautiful.

                  I guess I forgot to mention that the Majestic Elegance may be a possibility too, we just have to make sure that none of our potential guests are bringing children before we consider the Elegance. Thanks for your suggestion, though, ladies!

                    Kids can still go to the Elegance, they just can't go into the "club" section. You can still hang out in the regular pool, at the beach, in the restaurants.

                    Michael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut travel costs
