kvmolina - I have not personally visited PPC, but plan to before my May 2012 wedding. I was semi worried too after reading some of the reviews on travel sites, but after reading these forums, I felt 100 times better about my choice. The women on here are brides/brides-to-be like us and have the same concerns about their big day, so with the overwhelmingly positive response from brides who are in the same position as us, I felt assured I'd made the right decision. Also, in terms of personal reviews, I've only heard wonderful things from EVERYONE including a stranger in a bridal shop who currently lives in DR and was visiting her Mom in DC. She said the staff is wonderful, the resort is amazing, and they really go above and beyond. With that said, every experience will be different so it's hard to say.

I know what you mean, aesthetically I like the Aqua style better, too :-)
Also, a general question for anyone who has visited PPC or already done their wedding at Paradisus Punta Cana: we've read mostly positive reviews of the PPC online, and were feeling pretty good about it up until today. But my fiancee just mentioned that we'd booked this venue to some co-workers and they reported a really terrible experience there. That combined with the handful of negative reviews on TripAdvisor (which I'm usually able to balance out with the good stuff) makes me a little nervous at this point. My experience with the wedding coordinator has been really good so far, but she's not based on-site, so I'm not sure what to expect from the on-the-ground staff.
I just joined this forum and I'm planning to read over this very impressive thread of posts in the coming days. But I figured I should also ask directly: for those who have already been there, how did you like it? What were the pros and cons? How did you like it?
