A million and one questions~

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the forum!


I don't know if you are still looking for a place to get married, but I know I was totally overwhelmed when I got started too.  Didn't know what location I wanted, let alone which resort.  What really helped me was hiring a travel agent.  It didn't cost me any money, and I was able to tell her a few things that were important to me - needed a family resort, wanted it to be all-inclusive, wanted it to be relatively affordable for my guests, and she was able to give me some recommendations.  We narrowed it down to Riviera Maya mostly because of the cost (better than most places in Caribbean or Jamaica) and because of the all-inclusive.  She gave me her top pick for a resort (Azul Sensatori) and also priced out several others for me.  We kept talking and looking until I felt comfortable making a decision. 


Every travel agent has their own experiences and their favorite places, so it will be different no matter who you talk to, but I was just happy to have some help.  So if you haven't done so yet, you should definitely consider hiring a travel agent.  That way once you pick a resort, she can negotiate for you with the resort (and get a better price) as well as handle the travel arrangements for your guests.  Then you don't have to worry about it!


Anyway, good luck planning!!

    • 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
