Marie - great review...it looks like you had such a fun time, and I truly mean that. Based on the pics this is totally the kind of wedding I would want to be at!! When you plan a vow renewal, let me know and I'll be there, lol!! Everything looked beautiful but still laid back, relaxed and FUN!! Congrats!!

Thanks a lot hockeymom97.....

 

It makes me so sad to think its all over!

 

Its all I can think of since we re back..Im on red tag everyday looking to go back to Jamaica. I miss it so much and its almost been 3 months.

 

We truly had the time of our lives. That day was a dream come true for me, its exactly how I would have wanted my wedidng!

 

I woke up with my groom, went to breakfast...we parted ways and I met up with my girls..had drinks getting ready, laughing the whole time..I chatted with my dad the whole way to the gazebo laughing...we laughed through our vows..and I cried lol..so relaxed though....and seriously..as soon as we said :i do: ther was someone handing us a glass of champagne...you dont get that at every wedding!!! We actually got to chat and mingle n get pics with our guests...the supper was fun, we had a few toasts etc..the beach party was a riot! I never laughed so hard....I LOVED cooling off and laying in the sand...loved dancing, doing shots....our friends brought out their guitars later and we had our own beach party! The amount of people coming up to us, random people fromt he entertainment area was halarious...said they were watching u s all week and were looking forward to seeing our wedding, it was the sweetest!!!!!!!!

 

Ill keep ya posted on the vow renewal! lol Thanks again for your sweet comments.....8sigh* you just brought me back lol

Thanks for your super long review... I have a question as I have never been there before.... we happen to be having our wedding on the one day of the week that the disco is closed (Tuesday). I have a small group and don't want to pay for a private party if not everyone is going to dance. Are there any other places on the resort where people can dance? What day of the week is there a public beach party? I'd rather hear a review from a hotel guest than an employee.

Thanks so much for posting your review!! Very detailed and informative!

Wondering if you know the name of the tour company you guys went with for the Reggae tour (or even just the Bob Marley section)

Some of FI's friends are right into that and would kill me if I didn't share the information. Bah. I fgure I can send them on the tour, get it out of their systems and not have any issues at the resort...i hope. lol

 

Thanks!!

    • 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.
