Just Engaged!! Planning a DW for 2014!!!

Recommended Posts

I already had my DW in Aruba, but I am curious to know which 3 resorts made your cut. Do you mind sharing?

We asked everyone we know as well as several travel agents about the resorts with the best food. Then we went on Tripadvisor to see how the places recommended to us ranked in terms of their beaches. From there we got a list of 8 or 9 resorts which we priced and checked that their wedding packages included everything we wanted. Only three met all our criteria, much easier to make a decision at that point :) Good luck!

We got the Iberostar in Jamaica (the one we chose), the Grand Palladium in the Mayan Riviera and Ocean Coral also in the Mayan. There were many others that qualified with the good food and nice beach but these three came in under 1700 Canadian for a week long stay and had flexible wedding packages.

Congratulations and Welcome. I started by reading as many reviews as I could get my hands on. We settled on Mexico and that's about it for now. You have plenty of time so read lots of reviews (with a grain of salt) and go with the one that feels right.

    • 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.
