Palace Resorts Preferred DJ

Recommended Posts

As long as they only make me pay for day pass I will be happy! I will make sure my contract does not state "no outside vendors' because I will definetly be having outside vendors!!

I am going through this right now--- getting married this week and the prior WC I had told me -- or at least this is what I interpreted it to mean-- that the fee could be waived but I would need to pay guest pass fee for the DJ-- so @ this point-- days away, they are trying to stick this "displacement fee" on me and I am getting super frustrated with them. Those of you who have had the vendor fee waived- who agreed to that for you?

They havent actually told me what the amount of the displacement fee is-- she just mentioned it and I told her that my prior WC had said I could waive the fee.... she asked for that email and I sent it to her, but havent heard back... I'll definitely let you know, but I am thinking its the vendor fee which I think is $300, right?

So this is what she said --

 

That Is correct, if you will use your own DJ you will pay $88.00 USD per person, however Iâ€m talking about the displacement fee that covers the use of electrical power, table set up and linens for the table. The $88.00 USD that Mario comment you is only for people (outside vendors)

 

As you mention before you are a frequent visitor of www.bestdestinationweddings.com Below please find the proved that we charge $250.00 USD per Audiovisual equipment, plus $88.00 USD per person.

I have heard this mentioned somewhere else as well....they try to get you to pay them extra $ any way they can.... I don't know if an outside dj would be worth it if you are on a tight buget- $250 on top of what the DJ charges is a lot!

I am also using an outside DJ and paying for a day pass. This is written into my contract. However I haven't heard anything yet about this displacement fee. Great just another thing the Palace Resort is trying to give us a hard time about!

Have any of you Palace brides used their preferred DJ - J&S AV? If so, how were they? I can't seem to find too many reviews on them. I've been looking at Doremixx and Mannia and would love to use either of them, but I'm not sure that I want to fool with all of the day passes and 'displacement' fees (if that exists?)

 

Is anyone able to offer any insight on this?

hey J- me, I am getting married November 5th and we are using Doremixx. I did have it written into my contract so that I could use outside vendors without any additional fees other than day passes.

    • 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
