    I was set on Dreams and my TA told me to check out Majestic, I did and loved it! Decided on Majestic even though I had already been to Dreams and loved it. Now with all the negative reviews of the food and literally it seems like 95% of the people are getting sick, should I go back to Dreams for my wedding?


    I origianlly decided not to do dreams because of the rooms (started to see lots of bad reviews). but now they seem to be renovated.


    Am I Crazy? LOL - Any opinions!? :)

      I've been to both Dreams, and Majestic. I attended a wedding at Majestic and it was beautiful, the resort seems a little more modern than Dreams, but I've decided that I'll be having mine at Dreams. For starters, I'm a native Dominican, and even I got a little sick from eating some of the food. It might have been the shrimp at Sea and See, not sure. A number of us did get sick, one took about 3 days to get better totally bed ridden, and another had to get a very expensive shot to feel better. Majestic is very beautiful but when you look at the small details, I prefer Dreams. Dreams' nightly shows were more elaborate, and entertaining, while Majestic's seemed a little more amateur. The bedrooms at Majestic were a little more contemporary, but to be honest, how much time will you be really spending in a room? I heard from a few that Majestic charges for open bar at weddings, while Dreams does not. At the wedding I attended, the bride and grrom ended up buying liquor duty free at the airport and just brought it to the reception, they ended up providing their own liquor. I had visited Dreams twice befor attending this wedding at Majestic and to be honest, I spent most of my time comparing it to Dreams. I liked the layout of the grounds at Dreams alot better, the pool to me was nicer (biggest in Punta Cana) and I actaully liked the rooms better too. The dark majogany furniture in Majestic's rooms made the rooms seem a little bit less brighter than Dreams' rooms, and I actually thought that the service was a little bit better at Dreams too. For example by day three of my visit at Dreams the guy who made the omelettes at breakfast already knew my name and what I would like on my omelette, where as when I went to the bar by the beach at Majestic, it took the bartender a long time to even acknowledge me and take my drink order, once I did I asked him if he could slip some ice in the drink so that it wouldn't be hot by the time I reached the beach and he acted quite annoyed. I was on vacation and a very easy going person so his reaction merely just annoyed me a tad bit. It made me compare Majestic to Dreams once again, and Dreams won. Dreams is also a bit less expensive for our guests to stay at, and their packages offer more bang for their buck. So in my opinion, I'll go with Dreams :)

          I had my wedding at the Majestic Colonial and most of my group of 32 got sick, one hospitalized for a few days! The resort is beautiful, but getting sick isn't worth it. One of my guests attended a wedding at Dreams and she loved it there with no complaints and didn't get sick on that resort.


          I say go with Dreams...good luck!

              Hey Ladies,


              Just thought I'd share this news...a co-worker from my work was scheduled to stay at the Majestic Elegance from Feb 10-Feb 16 and was informed by her TA that the hotel was quarantined for the next couple of days due to ppl getting sick from the food. She was transferred to the Paradisus resort instead.

                      Hi girls! I am going to the majestic tuesday. Im having my ceremony and reception at the jellyfish but all my guests are staying at ME. My TA talked to the vp of sales and they said that everything is fine. I will let you know if hear anything else. 

                      www.steingardstudios.comMichael and Phil Steingard are located in Ontario, but travel to Punta Cana quite often during the year. There is a good chance they will be down already during your wedding week, so this will cut back on the travel costs.

                      PM me if you are getting married...
