Gran Bahia, Runaway Bay. 18th July 2011, help and advice needed!!

Recommended Posts

Hi There

 

I am due to get married in 5 weeks today and the wedding nerves are starting to get the better of me.

 

Are there any previous GBP brides out there who can help with a few questions or any brides that are way more organised than me.

 

What currency do they prefer in Jamaica?

 

How do you pay for extra, cash or credit card?

 

Whats the weather like in July?

 

Do you get a room upgrade?

 

Many Thanks

I am getting married at that resort and I know they take US dollars is the prefered currency. I believe minister fees must be payed in cash, other then that things can be payed with a credit card.  I don't know what the weather in July is like and i beleive they do an upgrade if possible.  Join this thread:

Jay Kay is right about everything, and I was told that the minister fees are to be paid cash.

I just asked this question a week ago and was told everything could be paid by credit card...even ministers fees.  I think if you choose to do that, they just give cash to the minister.  It's hot and really humid in July but doesn't rain often so hopefully your big day will be nice and dry!  At the resort I'm sure they prefer US currency, off the resort I know that most places will take it but might charge you more for things.  But if you don't have to figure out exchange rates and if you got the correct change in a diff currency, I think I'll just pay the extra.  As for upgrades, I think you just have to ask when you get there.  It's in all the wedding packages and says based on availability.  You're getting married a few days before us!!  We are July 23, 2011 :)

    • 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.
