I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack.

 

I had terrible communication leading up to the wedding but again will say what I've read so many times before - the ladies at the resort KNOW what they are doing. We had a little rain on our wedding day and ended up moving the reception indoors but it was still the wedding of my dreams. It really was perfect!!! If anyone has any questions please let me know! I will try and do a review shortly!!!

 

PS Sophia, contact PSAV - I found them way more reasonable than JSAV

We stayed in the sunrise side and I wouldnt have had it any other way. There was way more "life" on this side. Nizuc was quieter, however pretty much all the wedding stuff is on the nizuc side so it is a little bit inconveniant shuttling over there all the time. Grand was beautiful but a ghost town compared to the other sides.

 

We had booked a family suite and were upgraded to the presidential suite when we arrived (I believe my travel agent had to fight for this upgrade - but she won) Most of our guests booked the lowest room category and they all had ocean views so that was nice. Really you cant go wrong with any room there.... they are phenominal!

 

Don't hesitate to ask any other questions!!!

Did they use their credits to upgrade (your guests)?

 

My TA doesn't know which section our room block is in, but she thinks it is the NIzuc side.  We just booked the garden view room, knowing we will be upgraded to the ocean view with our 75 room nights.  I figured that was good enough and that we could upgrade to conciege if we wanted to with our resort credits.  All of my guests also booked the garden view rooms, and I will let them know they can use resort credits to ocean view if they want. 

 

Did you do any tours with your credits?

My guests didn't use credits to upgrade - I believe their "garden view" rooms were just that good. I can't speak for the nizuc side but on the sunrise side everyones rooms seemed to be able to see the ocean - they weren't ocean facing like mine, but they definitly had an ocean view.

 

We did the dolphin swim and wet and wild - both we had a great time on. We pre-booked the dolphin swim so we all went the same day and had a great time at wet and wild also - it was an overcast day that we went so it really was the perfect time to go and we all had a blast. We had a few guests go to Chichen Itza (however you spell that) and they really enjoyed it but the bus was over 2 hours each way!! As for the rest of the resort credits, people visited the spa, played lots of golf, did the romantic dinner etc. I don't think any of us managed to use ALL of our resort credits!

Awesome, good to know! :) I'll have to find out from Coco when she gets back what she thought of the Nizuc side rooms in case that's where we end up!

 

Did you book the swim with the dolphins when you got to the resort or were you able to book before?  Were you able to use the resort credits for it?  I am confused by them- when it says that transportation is not included- but isn't it part of wet and wild?  I think that would be fun to do with all my guests after the wedding- is it only at certain times? 

 

 

Great pic!! You look gorgeous!!! :)

I did book the dolphin swim prior to going. I can give you my contacts name - she was very helpful. (we were also able to pre book golf tee times through her so the men liked this!) I guess if you book the wet and wild and the dolphin swim you can use the transportation but it is only at certain times. We booked huge 12 seater van cabs through the resort and it was pretty reasonable... about 800 pesos each way for 12 people and he waited allll day for us. We tipped him good too!

 

Just an FYI the pictures at the dolphin swim are outrageous prices so bring lots of $$ if you want to buy them. I just bought one of my son and it was $30US.

    • I'm so sorry to hear this  Did you have a signed contract with him? What did he or the contract say the turn around time be? If it is way past the deadline, you have made several documented attempts to contact him, and he has broken your contract and failed to produce what has been promised, you could resort to writing an online review of your experience -- often times, that motivates vendors who've dropped the ball to rectify the situation because it affects other potential clients. 
    • STAY AWAY FROM CARIBBEAN EMOTIONS PHOTOGRAPHY!!!! Michael Weiler is a SCAMMER he took our money and disappeared!! we hired him as our photographer for our wedding back in November, he gave us a run around for the first week or 2 saying our pictures are almost ready and then disappeared. we have been sending him emails, texts and phone calls for the past 4 months and he is now where to be found. I made a fake account to email him and he answered right away as he is only interested in taking peoples money and not give anything in return.
    • For weddings you should definitely use a travel agent as there are promotions and amenities with a group block that you will not get by booking individually like comped rooms, upgrades, spa treatments, etc.
    • Congratulations and welcome to the forum! There are lots of great resort options in Punta Cana and we have stayed at or toured many of them.  Are you looking for a family friendly resort or adults only?  What you interested in with nature and the ceremony? All of the resorts will have different wedding locations and there are also a variety of off resort wedding venues in Punta Cana. Please feel free to email us at info@wrighttravelagency.com if you'd like us to send resort info and check group rates. Thanks! Patty
    • Hello Everyone!  I am currently in the initial stages of planning and I am starting to look at resorts in Dominican Republic. I am thinking of having my wedding in October 2020.  I have been looking at resorts in Punta Cana, but I also want to look at other options/areas as well. The groom and I enjoy nature and we would like to incorporate that into our wedding in some way. We may also have a guest list between 50-80 people. Since we live in the US, I wanted to find a location that is accessible from major airports and is cost efficient for our guest as well as us. Can anyone share what locations they have searched or been to other than Punta Cana? Also I am okay to receive feedback on some Punta Cana locations.
