        My resort recommends them as well. I too have heard mixed reviews & would love to know the name of the DJs that you had. Thanks!

        I plan on emailing them now to see if they have my date available, hopefully they wont tell me to go through my hotel since I would imagine that would be more money to do.

        I'm very interested in hiring them as well! It would be helpful to know who, especifically, has the best reviews from this company... Does anyone remember the name of their Dj?  

        To all future brides who will be having DJ Mannia, please check back and tell us about your DJ and if you liked him or her. Thank you :)

          Sheen811 I am getting married at Excellence Playa Mujeres & they told me the same thing. I have to contact my WC for pricing and booking....I just hope they dont hike up the price on us. Have you figured out what you are going to do & was the hotel able to book them for you at a reasonable rate?


          I would love to know which DJ's were loved or hated also. Thank ladies!

          Additionally, i have heard some mixed reviews with DJ Mannia; however it seems that there are many DJ's that work for this company. Can anyone pls share the names of the DJ's who you either loved or hated so that we can request a great DJ specifically?


          Thanks all for your help!

            I got married at Excellence Playa Mujeres just over a week ago and we used DJ Mannia.   I am very happy with their services.  The music during dinner was nice, then when it switched into party mode, they kept the party moving and played all music we liked based on just the few songs we gave them as a style.  We didnt get glowsticks or balloons which were discussed originally, but only my bridesmaids had the guts to boogie on the dance floor, so it's understandable.  Also, once the party was over, I think they played for 4 hours when we had said 5, but we just moved the party to the nightclub in the hotel so it was no big loss.  The DJ they sent was very friendly.  All in all, I give it a thumbs up.

              @ SparkleSun - What were the Rates for the 5hours you booked the DJ for?  Also what was the name of the DJ?

                We've booked Mannia Audio Visual & Illumination to be our DJ and do a slide show and dance floor on our 9/10/11 wedding.


                Pricing is:


                DJ Service -



                DJ booth

                Sound system

                Wireless microphone

                Robotic lights

                4 hrs of service = $990

                Extra hour = $150


                Sound system for ceremony = $300 (we didn't need this)


                Slide show-

                Screen & LCD projector = $320


                Dance floors range depending on size & lighting from $400-$1500


                They also offer cold fireworks (they call them sparkles) for $200


                Hope this helps!

                  Hi brides,


                  I just had a wedding in Punta Cana on May 8, 2014 at the Barcelo Bavaro Palace Deluxe.  It was an amazing wedding, but the only downside was the DJ company I used.  I used Dj Mannia because of the great things I've heard about them thru forums.


                  HOWEVER, I have to let other brides know about my negative experience because for $1,300 US I was very disappointed at the company and wished I had gone with a different DJ/MC service.


                  FIrst of all, the people who I had e-mail correspondence with did not tell me that the DJ is also the MC.  I still went ahead with it because of all the positive reviews on this forum.


                  The people I had e-mail correspondence with named Amy and Carlos Martinez did not give my DJ/MC the music file for our FIRST DANCE (we did a medley of songs), so I sent my mp3 file ahead of time, so that they can download our music.  They also did not send German my wedding day timeline that I had e-mailed days ahead.


                  I was VERY DISAPPOINTED at this company, and would not recommend this company because they made the DJ/MC so unprepared for my wedding and it basically delayed everything by AT LEAST 15 minutes because the DJ/MC came up to us at the beginning of the wedding and asked for our first dance and I said "you didn't download it?" he said whoever I spoke with did not give it to him.  Luckily, I had the song downloaded on my iPhone, so he attached it on the dock.  


                  Then, he was going over the dj questionnaire about introductions, and I was thinking the whole time, how can our MC seem like he doesn't know the flow of our wedding?  I asked him about the timeline and he said he did not receive that either.  I have proof of all my e-mails and I have proof of sent e-mails on my yahoo account.


                  The DJ/MC himself, German, was very nice and pleasant, but the fact that the company made him look unprofessional and unprepared was very disappointing.  I had to come up to him each time to explain what's next on the timeline.  I am in no means a bridezilla because I accommodate everything and yes, I still had fun at my wedding and so did our guests because luckily we are all laid-back people.


                  But if you want an organized wedding reception or if you are a perfectionist or simply want a good flow of things without you being stressed, do not get DJ Mannia services.  I may be a rare case, but I did not know nor expect that DJ Mannia will mess up my wedding reception until they did it to me.  So for $1,300 I could've gotten a better DJ and MC service.  Not a good surprise.


                  Also, that youtube video or any youtube videos is definitely not like the DJ they sent.  They play off your playlist as if you are playing music off your computer or iPhone.  Poor transitioning and mixing.  The youtube videos are misleading.  You think you'd get a quality dj like the ones you hear at clubs or radio, but it isn't.


                  I DO NOT RECOMMEND DJ MANNIA unfortunately this was my experience with them.  Goodluck brides!
