Just been looking through other forums, and Think i might have answered my own questions! Would the cocktail hour, sit down plated meal in a private area and reception all be free of charge for over 30 guests because I would be honoured unlimited private functions? All I would therefore need to pay for is extra seats at the ceremony?Ddoes anyone know how much this would be? Also need to pay for an extra table at $300? Sorry for being a pest!! Thanks, Nicole
Hey Nicole, when do u go? X x

Hiya!! I haven't booked up yet. Just getting all the details before I do so! Are you travelling from the UK too? Do you know the answers to any of my questions?!! X
Hey, I'm travelling from the UK too @ the end of September 2013. In the cocktail hour I believe you just get hors d'oeurves (excuse spelling lol) After the wedding ceremony your would have the cocktail hour (free if you have group benefits). Then for the reception you only get the buffet options if you have your reception in a private location. (Not A la Carte) You will only get 1hr cocktail & 2hr dinner free. If you want dinner plated I think it's $35pp extra Not sure about the additional above the 30 guests we only have 20 at the moment. We're going from Scotland too :) Charlene x

That's great thanks! I'm not bothered about a private area really for my dinner. Just would rather a sit down plated meal. So even with unlimited private functions (for having over 75 room nights) there is still a $35pp extra charge for sit down meal? It's a pain when you the resort don't email back to clarify anything! Thanks your help, it's cleared some stuff up! X

Hey ladies! Does anyone have a contact for someone at the Spa? We leave for vacation at Moon Palace exactly a week from todaycheesy.gif I was hoping to make some massage appointments before we go, because I hear they fill up. I'm not sure if they only allow you to reserve in advance if you are going for a wedding or not??

Hello! I have not booked my massages yet, however my wedding coordinator gave me this person as a contact for when I do:

 

Karla Estrada at kestrada@palaceresorts.com

 

Hope this helps!!

Hiii MPBP so it sounds like your planning your events similar to what I had. I had the symbolic ceremony in tucan gazebo followes by cocktail hour at venido terrace followed by dinner/reception at carabeno terrace.To have a sit down plated dinner you have to have it as a private function bc you have more then 30 people therefore they won't let you set it up in the carrabeno restaurant. Only the rooftop of the carrebeno which is a private space and will charge you $12 pp for the private space. Also plated means you will have to choose the menu for all. Only 1 thing for appetizer and 1 salad and entre for all. Because of this we chose th Buffet set up which worked out great since we had the lavender lux reception collection and decorated tables w china so people just filled up their own plates and sat down to eat just like plated. Let me know if you have any more questions

Hi lovely ladies, I'm wondering if anyone else has been assigned Renee Garcia as their wedding planner? I asked the contact person we've been dealing with- Ricardo Acosta for info on the wedding planner and I just received email with her name only. I'm just curious if anyone has worked with her or is currently working with her. Also any contact info on her would be helpful. Thank you

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
