Thanks so much MP Wedding plan, do you know where the main event board is located?  Do they post the daily/weekly events anywhere else throughout the resort?

How was your site visit?  Any must have or stay away from?



 




The site visit was great, although too short. The resort is very large, and 3 days was not enough time to see everything the resort has to offer.

Must see/try:

Micheal Jackson tribute show was actually GOOD.
The spa and both restaurants at the Golf Couse.
Mexican Restaurant Las Coparales was good.
Mo mo no Hana was good
Sushi on the Caribbean terrace was very good. They have sushi table service up there from like 5-8pm or 6-9pm.

Avoid:

Nothing really. The only thing I wasn't thrilled with was the lunch buffet inside the Nizuc lobby. Forgot the name. It wasn't great.
Also the orange juice there seems off. It may be fresh squeezed, but certainly much sweeter and/or more tart than what we are used to in the states (IMO).

There is a lot to explore at the resort. Quite a bit going on every night in and around both Nizuc and sunrise lobbies. You would be hard pressed to see everything in a full week.

You can stop into either lobby (Nizuc or Sunrise) and grab a weekly event calender off any desk.  They print a weekly program with hour by hour events going on.  I actually posted a copy of one in the Moon Palace 2011 brides thread.  I don't remember where exactly the main board is, possibly near the ampitheater maybe?  However, at check in, you can grab the program which lists all the events/days/times for the entire week.

My OPINION is that the Nizuc section was perfect.  The wedding dept is in the Nizuc Lobby.  The pools were large (not as large as the Sunrise), but there was plenty of room.  It is centrally located between Grand and Sunrise.  The Sunrise section holds the convention center, and therefore seems to be the section that large conventions stay in.  While we were there, we saw a HUGE convention taking up some areas of Sunrise (they were all wearing thier convention passes around thier necks each day/night).  Because of this, the Sunrise section seems to be busier with conventions/families.  Nizuc section seems to be more of the couples/honeymooners section (hence the low number of double bed rooms in Nizuc.  The Grand section was very nice, however, it was very quiet, and not many of that sections rooms have ocean views.  They are built back away from the ocean with more 'jungle' views. 

 

These are just my opinions.  I have read on these forums of many people who have stayed in the Sunrise section every time they go, and love it.  We booked Concierge level rooms, and they only exist in the Nizuc section.  I liked the idea that it was in the center of the resort, so the walk to either Sunrise or Grand isn't as bad from the middle. :)

MPWedding you are amazing ! Thank you so much for all of the photos and info. I don't have it in my budget to make a site visit, but your pics gave me the comfort I was looking for.  Now I just need to decide.  My wedding is at 2:00 on the beach and my room as at the Nizuc side.  In your opinion which terrace would be closest to the wedding and for the rest of the guests if they are on the sunrise side?

I agree 100%!  It's perfect because it's in the middle.  We walked almost everywhere.  Just when we needed to go to the golf course we used the shuttle.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
