    Thanks again for your review. I was wondering if you could help me with something... I want to have an informal "Meet and Greet" before the wedding and I'm looking for a place that I can just tell my family and friends to stop by and say hello and where we can grab a couple of drinks and catch up.

    Which of the following (or other places) would you recommend?

    Gabi Bar
    Hibiscus Bar
    Tea Time

      Great Review!


      I'll be getting married PPC in November and your review was extremely helpful. The pictures are great... did you also go with there video option and/or trash the dress session? I would love to see more pictures if you have the time to put more picture up :0) I'm still deciding on my Photographer or you PM me

          Great review! Congratulations! Can you tell me if there is still a "tax" when you enter DR at the airport. When I traveled last year I think it was $10 per person? Thanks!

              We didn't actually pay when we got into the airport because they handed out the tourist cards on our flight! But I think it depends what airline you fly because we did see a lot of people purchasing them for $10. Might wanna check with your airline :)

I'm not kidding, there is not one bad shot! They all turned out fantastic, it was so hard to decide which ones to print!

                These pictures are amazing and you look great, I was worried about the resort photographers but not anymore!

                    Thanks Jo !!!

                    Congratulations on your union, and I can only pray for the patience,peace, and understanding you exhibited throughout your journey. I t obviously paid off for you. I am new to the scene, and have bounced from Negril to RM and was researching the Secrets Sanctuary CC, you have made me a Paradisus believer and I will now concede with FI on the intimate crowd of 16.
                    We all have learned soo much from this forum and detailed and accurate wedding reviews are one of the best ways to give back.

                    Thank You for helping me keep things in perspective.

                    would you mind emailing or pming me quotes from the photographers, and the wish package with upgrades ya'll paid the morning of the reception

                      Great review!  PPC has been our front runner for resorts in DR, but the negative feedback on trip advisor had us worried. It was encouraging to read your review.  Thanks!! :)'s
