from Dreams to Majestic Elegance..now back to Dreams? opinions?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • Recent studies indicate that organizations, both large and small, either already have an HRO relationship and plan to expand it, or are considering one in the coming year. The survey, conducted by HfS Research and the London School of Economics, finds that 31% of business already outsource human resources san antonio and are looking to increase outsourced services over the next year. What is the driver for these businesses to outsource human resources? It is no secret that in lean economic times, business owners are pressed to identify expenses within an organization that can be reduced or minimized. Employment overhead (payroll, taxes, workers' compensation insurance, employee benefits, governmental compliance, and other employee-related cost centers) typically comprise the single highest area of expense within a company. More than rent, or facilities operations, or equipment, or compliance, human resources administration and expenses weigh heaviest on the business's bottom line. Streamlined HR Systems HRO firms offer streamlined human resource systems to their clients, significantly minimizing management's time in overseeing daily administrative tasks. Non-productive "paper pushing" can be outsourced to the HR firm, enabling key staff to focus on their core competencies. Processes such as payroll processing, tax filing and compliance, Unemployment Claims administration, workers' compensation management, and employee benefits enrollment and management can all easily and efficiently be outsourced. Cost effective insurance products. Reducing employment risks Government compliance and regulations continue to grow in complexity and scale. From wage and hour issues, to discrimination restrictions, to protected classes of employees and new disability guidelines, employers often walk through a minefield of risk. Without dedicated human resources personnel or legal counsel, it is likely a business will be faced with some form of an employment lawsuit in the coming years which can costs tens-of-thousands of dollars. With close to 100,000 employment claims filed in 2010 (the highest on record!), employers recognize the risk and are turning to Human Resource Outsourcing firms to assist them in managing these risks. Human Resources Outsourcing may not be the solution for every employment need. However, for most employers with less than 200 employees looking to reduce employment expenses and overhead, outsourcing human resources may be exactly what their organization needs. As the economy continues to improve and stabilize, the time will soon come that employers will be refocusing on growth and profitability. It may also entail rehiring staff, restructuring the organization, or simply concentrating on areas that have been left on the side. Certainly, proper employment administration and oversight will be priorities to get back on their feet. However, with the demands of rebuilding, many employers may be unable to spend the necessary time focusing on their staff. Read about one organization that found a different way - through Human Resources Outsourcing. Since joining the San Antonio Human Resources Outsourcing firm, he feels that the day-to-day protection he experiences in the area of employment exposures is immeasurable. Our HRO vendor has become our 'go-to resource.' Without this type of relationship we end up making our own decisions, without proper knowledge of the law, and will ultimately You think you can use common sense, but common sense and the law rarely match! The Director says the benefits of the outsourcing relationship were immediately realized, as the new systems and processes were implemented and functioning within 30-60 days.  
    • As of late 2019, the Gatekeepers Museum no longer hosts wedding events.
    • So thanks to coronavirus, my husband and I have had to make alterations to our wedding. I don’t think I have to put this in, but this isn’t a joke and need we thoughts on this.   We’re planning on having our full, entire wedding inside this bubble (I’m inside it for scale). This is to get complete isolation from the virus and to prevent it from spreading to either of us, or if we have the virus somehow, spreading it to others. Both of will get inside it for the whole day (or at least that’s the plan). We are ok with making small to moderate changes from a typical wedding if it means isolating inside a bubble, but any big changes would mean we probably won’t use the bubble then. Are there any parts in the wedding that would be difficult or downright impossible to do inside this bubble? What are your thoughts on this idea, and what would need to be changed from a traditional wedding?  
    • Sadly no .. its been a year and a half since our wedding and till this day we cannot get a hold of him.  We had a few people reach out to us and the same thing happened to them about a month or 2 after us.
