Blau Varadero review (long!)

Recommended Posts

Finally booked our weddding in on May 7, 2012 at Blau Varadero. I am expecting 20-35 people and am considering closing out an A-la catre for us exclusivelly. The hotel told me it would cost me $750 from 6:30pm to 10:30pm. Has anyone done this? is this worth it? Did they decorate your reception area for you? The hotel answers questions based on priority and it is too far away for my wedding to get their attention it seems.

ANy help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

We had about as many people as you and they just sectioned off a portion of the restaurant for the wedding party - it's kind of located behind some short walls and the string quartet. It was perfect, definitely private enough and it's a quiet/formal atmosphere anyways so other guests are not going to bother you.

 

We weren't charged anything, and they don't decorate it much unless you ask them too, but it already looks nice. We brought decorations with us and told our wedding coordinator we wanted them spread out over the tables. You can also ask her to put flowers on each table.

We are getting married at the Blau in January 2012. We have 60 people coming with us. I'm trying to sort out what I need to bring down for decorations. The resort has been really good about getting back to me on everything with this one exception. Does anyone know how many people are at each table? Would they combine tables into larger tables? I would really appreciate any information I can get.

I'm getting married there in January too. I emailed them all the info they asked for but lately they haven't even let me know if they received all the info that I sent to them. I here that emails take them awhile from a friend who got married over in cuba last year they just have slower internet.

We are getting married on the 18th so we'll be there at the same time!

 

Mabiel actually just got back to me today. She said that the tables are usually set up for 4 people but they will group 2, 3 or 4 together. I'm bringing my own centerpieces down so I'm trying to figure out how many I'll need. That, and I need to figure out how I'm going to arrange seating for 4 sets of parents, the wedding party and guests. She said that they normally seat the bride and groom at a sweetheart table though so that helps with the planning.

 

I asked a few more questions earlier on but she just told me not to worry about it, that we would meet the day we get there to sort out what we need. I'm trying to stay relaxed about it but it's so very soon. It's getting harder!

I'm going a January bride as well. What date are you ladies getting married? Our wedding will be off site but we'll be at the Blau with around 60 people as well from the 11th-18th.

Well thats neet. We are going up a week ahead of time so that all is done and talked about so that when friends and family start to arrive don't have to think about anything else. just hang out with them and have fun until the 19th. Thats pretty neat that we will be there the same time. hope your decorations go well.

Our guests are flying down from all over Canada. The western group will get there on the 15th and the eastern group on the 16th. Everyone is going down for a week. I can't believe how soon it is! Do you guys know anything about the menu for weddings? Do they have a set menu or would everyone just order from the normal a la carte menu?

    • 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.
