Having a very hard time picking a resort. Help please

Recommended Posts

We want to get married in Cuba. We L-O-V-E Cuba! It's beautiful and the people are amazing. But in the sea of threads, I am feeling totally lost and getting very discouraged.

 

I am looking for a resort that is kid friendly and that will not break the bank.

 

If you know of a good resort, please let me know.

 

Thank you,

Iberostar Laguna Azul is fabulous and it is kid friendly!!!  It didn't break the bank and our wedding was amazing, I wouldn't change a thing!  There were 32 of us, this included a 2, 3, 6, 14, 15, 16 year olds, and there was plenty to do!

I agree about the Iberostar Laguna Azul or the Iberostar Varadero.

 

I also like the Barcelo Marina Palace or the Barcelo Solymar.

When I was looking, Melia Varadero always came up as not having kids club but I have since heard that they are really kid friendly, and use the kids club at a neighboring resort.  The wedding will be our first time in Cuba, so unfortunately I don't know personally.  I think for the most part it's hard to go wrong.

 

Good luck in the decision process :-)

We are getting married at Sirenis La Salina in Varadero. We are going with about 9 kids aged from infant to 14. We picked this place for a few reasons but the main one was that it did NOT break the bank!!! It depends on when you are planning to get married and the prices vary from there. Good luck!

Thank you for the many great suggestions.

 

AlexsBride, I was looking at the Sirenis La Salina but for some unknown reason, this hotel no longer shows up on Sunwing. Where did you book it?

 

krishna69z when is your wedding? I would love to get your review of things.

 

TA Becky, I will check them both. It's just hard picking when you've never gone to the location.

We are in the same boat right now.  We just dont know which would be the best spot for us.  We also have to think about our friends budgets. If they were not a factor, we would go all out! Although I want this to be the most memorial day of our life, we want out friends there so we also have to work with them.  We looked at Jamaica, Mexico, Turks and Caicos, St. Lucia, and many more places and have not decided on something yet.

jesscampbell410  I feel the exact same way. I saw this beautiful place called Dreams La Romana in The DR but it's at the top end of the budget.. 1500$ / person. I would like to keep it low so more people can come but you always get what you pay for, right?

 

Then there is the weather factor.. Early Feb can be tricky for Cuba but I don't mind if it's warm during the day and cooler at night. The best bang for your buck is Cuba, no doubt about that.. but it's so dreamy to look at Turks and Caicos and places like that. 

 

I read so many reviews on Trip Advisor and it's not making me feel super optimistic. I was looking at the Iberostar Tainos in Cuba (Rated 3rd by TripAdvisor) but the reviews hit and miss. No clue how it got 3rd place to begin with.

 

Let me know if you find a jem  :)

vero007- I know your feeling.  We really want our friends and family there, but this is our wedding. My best friend got married and I saw her so upset because some of her closest friends disappointed her and didnt come.  After seeing her go through all that, I see that some people will disappoint you and some will surprise you in who will come.  I know that I need to remember that it is my wedding and MY special day, not anyone else.  Not to be selfish or anything.  I want everyone to come that can, but if they cant, they cant. 

 

As for the weather, its a daily thing.  If the weather is bad, its bad.  I guess you just have to cross your fingers about the weather.  

 

Turks and Caicos looks gorgeous!

 

I have looked at Trip Advisors before too and I guess its a personal experience that makes the person write the review.  I see great reviews on trips and then I see people who absolutely hate it.  I guess that also depends also.

 

I'll be sure to let you know :) same with you!

    • Hello, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!
    • Anybody getting married at the fives beach hotel in playa del carmen in 2020? I'd like to connect with others as we are experiencing some issues and misinformation with the karisma transition. Hoping we can all help each other!
    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned. 
    • My daughter is getting married in Punta Cana on May 23rd, 2020. The hotel is charging a fortune for centerpieces that I can make it easily. I need a contact of wholesale florist please. To buy directly. If anyone could help I appreciate
