Attn all future ror brides

Recommended Posts

That is really disappointing to hear as Chandlyn did a wonderful job with my wedding (with exception of flowers). She just had a way of calming you.

It will be interesting to see the upcoming reviews and how things went. Best wishes ladies :). I hope your day's are everything you hoped for and this change in co-ordinators doesn't spoil such an important day for you.

Try not to stress..

I just wanted to let future ROR brides know that I received an email today from Antonette at ROR.

 

This is such a huge relief as I have not heard from them in a month - I am just happy that I am still in the system somewhere.

 

Leaving on Friday! I am going to find a WC on Saturday if it's the last thing I do! I have printed out all my correspondence in case we have to start planning from the beginning again.

Actually we used BOTH! I brought my IPOD down just in case they didnt have certain songs and I had the DJ control everything. He switched back and forth... he was really good! And it was nice not to have to worry about it.

I just walked write up to the office door and opened it and walked upstairs and she was there! Everytime. I wouldn't worry.... you'll see her

I have alot of guests arriving on different days. I wanted to be able to tell them before hand where to meet for a welcome dinner and since Tina won't respond I can't pre-plan anything.
They arranged the welcome dinner like the day before and then had to change the number (add more) the morning of. I wouldnt worry about... it's not hard to set up. THey do it at St. Annes and all they do is push tables together.

Thank you soooo much for this post JesseLyn10....you have no idea how much this calms the nerves that things are now running smoother with the new WC Antonette!  As someone who is definitely a planner (wish I was one of the more "laidback brides"), it is difficult to remain calm when you receive slooooow responses from the ROR.  Glad your special day went amazing!

Hi ladies,

 

I was told Chandlyn was fired for pocketing money from the cash payments she requested.  Apparently NOTHING needs to be paid in cash and Chandlyn was telling people otherwise.  She was also giving inaccurate prices.

 

Tina Dunbar was useless and pretty much ruined the way our wedding unfolded.

 

There are new WCs at ROR.  Tina's gone.  Hopefully they'll get their @h*t together now!

 

I've demanded to be compensated and was informed yesterday that I will be contacted 'very soon' from someone at RIU.  I would suggest that anyone who had problems on their wedding day should send their concerns to: customerserviceamericas01@riu.com weddings@riu.com faguilar@riu.com and clubhotel.ochorios@riu.com.  I had to email all of them several times to get a response but it finally worked!

 

Good luck to all the future ROR brides!

Wow! Thats crazy! I guess even as good a job as she did on past brides wedding, there is justification for her termination. That really really sucks!

    • 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.
