The new Paradisus Playa del Carmen (La Perla and La Esmeralda)

Recommended Posts

You don't have to pay for day passes for blue lens caribe, since they are the preferred vendor. I put my deposit down with blue lens a few months ago...the package prices listed include fees/taxes/etc. I'm so excited b/c they do fab work!!!! I'm working with Ashley, she's a gem;)

How long from the airport did it take to get to Paradisus Playa Del Carmen La Esmeralda?  I'm also gonna be booking at this hotel for my wedding.  Did you guys get a form to fill out to hold the date of your wedding?  I just haven't gotten a response back yet & needed to know what info they need from us to be able to secure our date.  If you have that form, would you be able to attach it to here, just so I can check out the details?   Ok thanks!
You'll have to contact the romance dept in Miami because they have to tell you whether or not the day is available before they send you the reservation form. Call and ask to speak with Jessica, she's my coordinator, she is always on her toes!

You know what's ridiculous...for them to charge so much for everything when the place is in the ghetto. I dont mean a not so rich area, I mean shacks and corrugated metal for walls and roofs. It's shady as heck. You would not want to wander outside this compound. when our taxi pulled up I really wanted to tell him to just turn around because I didnt' want to bother seeing the property.
While I agree that some of the prices at destination wedding resorts can be astronomical (outside vendor fees, ceremony extras, etc.), in my humble opinion I believe you get what you pay for!!!! I'm soooooo looking forward to a wonderful, chic wedding at Paradisus:cool: Ladies, we picked THE BEST resort in Playa Del Carmen...toodles!

Agreed!  I was quoted $3500!

Sorry ladies I have not been on here lately....took forever but I'm officially done with my save the dates!! I really hope people book their rooms quickly bc the resort doesn't block rooms for a long period.... In regards to the fee associated with The gabi club, It's depends on if you have the aqua package or tailor package. You get charged either way, but believe aqua package is more ...make sens since you are already paying 12 k for the tailor package

Hi,

 

Your info on the resort is very helpful.  If you don't mind, may I ask how many guests you had and if you had to pay anything outside the Tailor Made price?

My save the dates just went out so not sure how many people will be coming yet but we expect a min of 60 people. Their are a lot of things you must pay outside of tailor package such as photography, decor and design, and DJ.

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
