Wedding planned for 2012

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

I was just wondering if anyone who has gotten married at the Riu has any advice for me or any helpful tips would be greatly appreciated. My fiance and I stayed at the Riu back in Sep. of 2005. We had a good time but did notice a couple of things that weren't really to great about this hotel. For one the pool is rather small. The jacuzzi wasn't hot probably because it spills into the pool. The first night we had one of those ugly rooms that have the ac view, thankfully they were nice enough to switch us to an ocean view the very next day. The other major problem we didn't like at all was that the tower blocked the sun at certain angles at different times of the day. We had to keep moving around chasing the sun!! The beach is wonderful. The water is crystal clear and the sand is nice and soft.I have mixed feelings about having our wedding there.I would really really appreciate it if someone who has already gotten married there helped me figure out what to do. I Thank you before hand.

We had to change the date to the following Saturday, the 25th. Like I mentioned in my 1st post. I have mixed feelings but I am more & more convinced the Roy is the way to go....the beach is so well worth it. Best of luck on your wedding day :)

    • 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.
