We have been very lucky so far. We hired a destination wedding coordinator who arranges all the major details with the resort and books all the travel for our guests. As of yet I haven't had to deal with the WCs at the resort. I have read many people saying they wait long times for responses. Our destination wedding coordinator is the best $300 we have spent on the wedding!!! We went with the Tangerine Sunset package with a ceremony on the beach.
Some people have been talking about the Bar Higuey and how they won't confirm until you pay or that they can move your reception. We actually booked the presidential suite for our reception and will have everything set up on the balcony (something that we are super excited about!!). I wasn't willing to have my reception in a ball room and didn't want to risk the reception being moved.
Disazaja - Did you have to pay for anything when you did your site visit, the food tasting, hair trial, anything like that?
