The reason I am asking is the I am getting married next year and will be staying at Paradisus for my Honeymoon, but my family and friends will be staying next door to the Melia. I would like to go over and see my kids and family, but not sure if I would be able to.


Can anyone share some insight! feedback.gif



We did not stay at the Paradisus but did notice that they had walkways to and from the Melia to the Paradisus, I think Paradisus guests can access the Melia but Melia Guests can not access the Paradisus.

Yay November Brides! :) @Mrs.Shoreytobe I was back and forth but finally decided to have the symbolic ceremony at the Melia beach gazebo and then doing the reception at the jellyfish...but it's gonna cost me more to do it that way not sure exactly how much since I don't have a final count of guests yet. I decided to do this option since I did not want to actually get married on the beach which is the only option at jellyfish and when looking into the Melia I couldn't decide on which reception area I liked. I actually found jellyfish on one of these blogs and when I saw it fell in love...but in the end I chose both.
I'm planning early , but I have my October 31, 2014 wedding booked at Jellyfish. I'm leaning towards the Melia as well. It's seems mot are confused about where to have the ceremony. Although Melia gives u a general idea of why it will cost , does anyone know what it will cost over at Jellyfish. Still dealing with Mayte' s vague answers

I am getting married at the Melia on November 16, 2013 but just doing the symbolic ceremony there and the reception at the Jellyfish Restaurant. I am having difficulty w the photographer situation. Apparently melia has a contract w Arrecife studio but I found a better deal w an outside company...yet Melia would charge me $1000 to use someone other than Arrecife!!! That is just ridiculous....anyone having any issues w the same thing or any other suggestions :/...??
Hi! I noticed your post, I am also going to be there on the 16th and I'm bringing down to amazing photographers. Since they are staying on melia property you wouldn't have to pay the fee. Not sure if you found anyone or not. Just thought I could help:)

Hi Ladies,


Getting married at Melia on April 11, 2014....anyone else getting married at that time? 


Few questions for past brides:


- How's the weather is like in April in DR??

- Is anyone familiar with the Tropical Hall. My reception will be held there and would like to know how its like.

- I opted for the Tropical Fairy Package and i know the decor is preset, does anyone know if you are able to request your colour theme, or if this is at all possible with out any fees??


Greatly appreciate your thoughts!!!

Hey I'm wondering if you could please e-mail me the package also.. I am looking for the prices and I e-mailed the resort and still haven't heard back. Also can you please send me the e-mail that you used to e-mail them I am wondering if I have the wrong one. My e-mail is super old from highschool don't judge lol syncro_babe@hotmail.com. I am just curious what the costs are looking like for everything :) thanks so much ... Also has anyone had a private or semi-private reception. How did that wok? how much was it? and did you have a lot of people that could see your wedding?

    • 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!!
