Recommended Posts

Hello.... I just realized that the post I created earlier introducing myself did post. sad.gif

 

Recently engaged in Hawaii in October... planning a site visit to EDR with future hubby next weekend. We want Nov. 5, 2011 bu we're told that only the 4pm slot is open. is that too late for a november wedding?? i hope not.

 

please let me know if there's anything we should be keeping in mind as we go down to do our visit. I would love to do the ceremony at Gazebo 55 and then reception at Tuscanes (sp?) .

 

Thanks! (this forum has been super helpful!)

Hi Everyone!

I'm new to this forum and very excited to see a thread on EDR!! We are having a DW there 11~11~11. We have stayed at this resort 3 times! it is the first vacation we took together and it has held a special place in our hearts since our first visit, IT IS Amazing! I have met many brides who had their wedding at this resort and everyone has always been Very Happy with everything. We have also stayed at ED Maroma ~ beautiful also! That is were my FI proposed, unexpectedly, at sunset on the beach... It was perfect :) 

My Lomas coordinator is Carolina. We visted the resort last month and met with her and choose our location~ Gazebo 55 !! It is a beautiful location at the end of the resort. Away from the mainstream of the resort. She has been very helpful, communicating via email. Quick to answer my questions and reassuring! :o! It gets overwhelming trying to make all these plans so far away. If you have any questions about the resort feel free to ask me! I look forward to reading everyones posts~ it is sooo helpful!

We just got back from our wedding at EDR on Dec 1, 2010 and it was amazing!  Girls you and your guests will all love this resort!  I'll be writing my full review soon, but I just wanted to give my thoughts on your question. 

The one thing my husband and I would change is our times.  We had a 4pm ceremony(Gazebo 55), cocktails at 6pm(Health Bar), dinner at 7pm(Tucanes Bar/Pool).  There was enough time in between all the events, but the sun goes down so early so we were scrammbling to get photos done after the ceremony before we lost light.  Also, private events end at 11pm, so if we had had our ceremony at 3pm and dinner at 6pm we would have had more dancing time!  Just little details, but things you think of after!!  (we also only had our photographer-Citlalli Rico-for 3 hours so that affected our photo rush!  We wish we could have afforded to have her longer, she was so great and worth every penny!)

Yikes!  I'm getting married in 2 weeks and also have a 4pm wedding.  I wonder if we should try and move it up a half hour or so?  I'm sure the resort could accomodate and then still have our dinner at 6:00pm.  Except that might mess up the spa appointments.  Ugh!

 

So excited that you loved Citalli though.  I'm using her too and very excited!!

Hello ladies who have already stayed at EDR - was there wi-fi capabilities at the hotel and if so, was it provided for a fee or at no charge?  Also, if you did use it - did it work properly or was it spotty?

 

Thanks!

There is wi-fi in the main lobby only, as far as I know, but we didn't use it.  The lobby also has pay internet (3 computers) half an hour for $6US.

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
