Hi Ladies,

I was just at the resort a couple of weeks ago for my site visit and No it doesn't effect the beach weddings. the majority of the beach is open and we didn't even realize a portion of it was closed. They closed it to do some work so it is safer to swim in the water in that area. The Isla beach is open which is where they will be having the beach ceremony until the ipanema side is open. Basically, if your having a beach ceremony it will be on the Isla beach!

Below is the information I received from our HRPC account manager regarding the beach closure. Weddings are still being done on the beach at the opposite end. I hope this helps! TA Patty

 

 

Effective September 7th, and for the next 90 days, a portion of our beach will be closed for the creation of a wave breaker. The approximate completion date is December 12, 2012.  This wave breaker will provide added safety for guests who choose to take advantage of our expansive beachscape while vacationing at the resort.

 

This project is being carried out by professional contractors who specialize in environmental benefits and solutions that provide added safety to those who want to go into the ocean.

 

During this time, a perimeter will be set into place to clearly mark the project area and to ensure guest safety. The rest of the beach, in addition to the resort poolscape, will still be accessible to all.

 

We thank you for your understanding and will continue to update you regarding this project.

Not to worry, I inquired about this as well as I am getting married there Dec.5th this year. Apparently is far away from Isle Beach  as the resort is just massive. Not to worry. :)

We met with the wedding & group sales manager last week and were told the onsite WC's will not begin working with brides prior to 30 days to your wedding. Up until that time you need to work through the Miami office and the onsite WC's have been instructed to not even respond if a bride contacts them before the 30 day mark. Apparently they are very strict with this policy and will not budge. All communication must be with the Miami office until you are assigned your WC 30 days prior to your wedding date. Please let me know if you have any additional questions. TA Patty

Hi Patty! Do you know where we could rent DJ equipment that is cheaper than the resorts vendor JSV! They are overcharging for everything! Our guest who is a close friend is a DJ and he will be DJ'ing for us. Do you have any suggestions?

    • 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.
