Royal Suites Turquesa at Grand Palladium 4/16/10

Recommended Posts

PM me your email address and I'll send you the snapfish link, there are plenty of photos!!  for wedding boat info, i definitely suggest the website, www.weddingboatpuntacana.com.  I can send you Flori's info, I have to say, it was such a great starter for the whole wedding weekend.  If you do decide to do it, guests may want to bring a wrap or cardigan, because it got very breezy as the boat went farther away from the shore.  I did do OOT bags...we brought down tons of stuff!

The resort does have a DJ, but the reviews for him are nowhere near as positive or glowing as Mannia.  That was probably some of the best spent money we had at the wedding.

Hey...I am actually getting married at the Grand Palladium Palace on July 26, 2011. I have been trying to contact Carolina the wedding coordinator and I am not a bit happy with her not responding back to my questions. I am sooooo lost and have many questions that need to be answered. I also have a budget and I have no idea as to what I will be spending. HOw was your experience with Carolina? Did you add your own details to your wedding through vendors out there? or did the hotel customize through other vendors for you? Glad that I know about the menus...I have enough time to get them printed. Did you find out about the Boat Dinner? I love that idea too and would like to see what they charge love.gif

WOW!!! How funny is that...our weddings at the same resort and in the same week :)....Maybe we see eachother over there. Did you decide on your ceremony area? What about your reception? I wanted to know if you were adding your own details to your wedding (e.g. favors, menus, centerpieces???).

 

Thanks in advance for your answers.

Carolina will either take a long time to reply back to you, or will disregard your message.  we only met with carolina for 45 mins a few days before the wedding, and then saw her again the day of the ceremony.  We talked for only a few minutes for questions that she had - if you want things done a specific way, you need to spell that out to her as much as possible.  it's unfortunate, but they tend to cram many weddings into a day.

Yes maybe we will see each other! What date are you planning to arrive and how long? Feel free to PM me if you wish :) I decided on the gazebo for the ceremony, the one used for symbolic ceremonies is the one nearest the beach and soooooo pretty! For the reception I am still debating between La Uva which is right near the beach and gets a nice breeze, or El Quijote which is an indoor restaurant and hopefully air conditioned. I am planning either a private or semi-private reception at the restaurant and then moving the party to the beach with a beach party. I am still on the fence about having a beach party or just keeping the reception in the restaurant. And when I met with Carolina in August, she said you are free to bring your own decorations. They offer decorations for the reception but with an extra charge. I hear that she makes menus and other brides have said that they didn't get any, so to be safe I will be making some. Anything else ask away!

    • 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
