What Is Your Wedding Venue / Location

Recommended Posts

We knew we wanted to get married right on the beach and have a simple ceremony. Couples Swept Away grabbed our attention over the other all inclusive resorts because of the grounds, its activities, and they offer rooms right on the beach. The small complimentary wedding package is included with our stay, so we were sold. They have a wedding planner we meet with when we get there to take care of everything.


It is not the right choice for someone who wants complete control over every detail ahead of time (although they do accomodate requests made via e-mail). It is perfect for us.

Thanks much.
Church wedding ...TBD - Runaway Bay is #1
Coyaba Garden - Ochi for our reception.

We chose an off-site venue b/c we are locals and we need to be able to do our own thing and not have hotel limitations. Also, the day pass issue that's with most of the hotels..and since we're on a budget, we have to be able to do our own catering.

hilton rose hall for us - swayed by the not having to pay for external guests who are not staying in resort (family in Jamaica). otherwise would have been somewhere in negril or starfish (now breezes) trelawny where we have stayed before.

We chose the Coral Cove Resort and Spa in Little Bay. We wanted to avoid the "touristy" locations and opt for more seclusion. We haven't decided if we want to be on the beach or overlooking the beach!

    • 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
