The Royal Playa del Carmen

Recommended Posts

Hello Ladies, Gents, Soon to be Brides, Brides,

 

I need some help deciding on a resort for my May 2012 wedding. I am doing a Beach ceremony followed by a Beach Reception or on a terrace overlooking the beach for 65 guests.

 

I have narrowed down my choices to 1) The NOW Sapphire or 2) The Royal (Real Resorts) - Playa Del Carmen. I am having a hard time deciding between the two, and may have to toss a coin :) Any input on either of these 2 resorts or why you chose the Royal or the Sapphire would be very helpful.

 

Brides that have had their wedding at either resort or any one who has done a site visit, I would love to hear your reviews or see any photos.

 

All please respond or send me a PM.

 

I have heard/read great things about each resort and some things that concern me. For example, The Beach at the Royal is not nice, the Sapphire's is better but the food/service, atmosphere is not as good as the Royal. Both are in comparision as for costs. I am unable to do my own site visit so I have to base my choice on reviews and photos which is tough.

 

 

Thanks so much!!!!

I noticed that your wedding date was August of this year.... were you happy with the resort?  I am wanting to do a destination wedding but having a hard time deciding which resort to chose.  The Royal was recommended, along with the Paradisus in Playa del Carmen....

    • 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!!
