Gran Caribe Real - Non guest Day/Evening Pass

Recommended Posts

Can anybody please tell me if the Gran Caribe have Day/Evening passes for non guests of the hotel to purchase. The reason i'm asking is that I want to have my wedding there in June 2012, but some of my guests will be staying at other hotels. I know that I can pay for non hotel guests to attend the ceremony and semi-rivate reception (which is only 1 1/2 hours) but we feel that this will not be enough time with the guests and would like them to stay on after to have a drink at some of the bars until the late evening.

 

Or we are even thinking of not paying for the semi-private reception and getting day passes for the non-hotel guests and booking into one of the restaurants to have the reception there and drinks at the bars afterwards.

 

If anybody does have any information on day/evening passes please let me know. I know that most hotels have passes for non-hotel guests but I can't find any information on the Gran Caribe website.

 

Thank you

9am-5pm $65

12pm-5pm $50

9am-11pm $95

Kids 6-12 $35

Kids 0-5 free

 

Unfortunately they do not have just an evening pass... you might want to think about upgrading to the private reception (which is 3 hours). That's what we decided to do.

I was told that my guest did not need to purchase day passes that only the vendors from outside the hotel need day pases. Then again, Im getting marred in the ocean front chapel and then having a small cocktail after wards. Speak to you weddig coordinator about this.

My WC told me that the guests do not have to pay for passes, but I think they're only allowed on the premises like half an hour before the wedding starts and have to leave right after. Hope this helps.

I just had my wedding there. I only had the catholic ceremony in the chapel as our reception was elsewhere.   It is not necessary to buy day passes.  ALL of my guests as well as my husband and I stayed in other hotels and we did not have an issue there.  Guestâ€s passes are only for people who are not attending a function like a wedding at the hotel.  Again donâ€t freak out and DONâ€T buy guest passes  they are not needed for your guests to attend the wedding.

    • 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.
