Things I need to know about PV

Recommended Posts

Like I posted over in the Newb section, I'm new to the boards.

 

I would like to get some information on PV and the surrounding area. Like things to do while we're there on a site visit and eventually for our wedding. My fiance, Jaime (JaimeLynne) and I have got a rough itenerary for our site visit coming up(Aug 20-24th).

 

Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!

Welcome to the forum Martin.

 

I'll be going to PV this fall for my wedding as well. So far we got a fishing trip planned and we will be doing the canopy tours. Never done them before but I hear they are amazing!!

Thanks for your help. I would like to know where there is to do while Jaime and I are there for our site visit. I guess like hotels to see for the actual wedding and also for places to stay.

 

We're really looking at the westin for a place to stay (both on the site visit and for the wedding) and the Mayan for the actual cerimony. But just in case those places don't work for us...where should we look? I know there are dozens of places to have the wedding and/or to stay...I just don't know where to start.smile43.gif

Since you're staying at the Westin you'll definitely go to Nikki Beach because it's on site (club). Beautiful place with beds and pillows on the beach, drinks aren't cheap so if you wanna save $$ keep a bottle in your room to get tipsy before heading down to the club . . .haha. If I stayed there that's what I would have done.

 

My standard PV endorsements are: Zoo Bar - don't miss it if you're party people. Barcelona Tapas for excellent food & views. Rhythyms of the Night dinner tour to Las Caletas OR day tour to Las Caletas

 

For wedding sites try to contact a few places in advance and see if you can set up meetings. Besides what you mentioned, maybe Velas Vallarta, Dreams, Las Caletas, Marriott Casamagna....our PV resident can probably give you more info.

 

Have you considered a wedding at a private home? That was what we were doing until we found Las Caletas. I have tons of that info saved if you want it.

    • 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!!
