Trying to Choose our Punta Cana Resort

Recommended Posts

My fiance and I have decided on Punta Cana as our destination for our 2012 wedding.  We've met with our travel agent and narrowed down the resort search to three resorts:  Dreams Palm Beach, Majestic Colonial, and NOW Larimar (previously a different resort).  Has anyone traveled to any of these resorts, or is anyone planning their own wedding at one of these?

 

I've read good and bad reviews for each place, but I am probably just as confused as when I started.  Haha...that's wedding planning, I guess!  I would appreciate any input anyone has!

I have not stayed at either of those places. I did however stay at the Gran Bahia Principe Bavaro, which is right next door to the Majestic.

My husband and I took a walk over and snuck in to see what it looked like. Its very nice, very modern feel to it. Our friends have stayed there and they said they enjoyed it. Althou one of them got pretty sick there. But that can happen with anywhere in domincan.

 

The Gran Bahia Principe is where I got married this past July. It was perfect. My husband and I stayed there 2 yrs prior for vacation and wanted to play it safe for the wedding. So we went back there. We love the Bahia. Great food, lots to do, and our wedding turned out perfect.

 

I know I probably wasnt much help......but my friends enjoyed Majestic.

Welcome! Congrats on narrowing down your location! For us that was the hardest part.  Although I have never been to Punta Cana, my family has travelled there and stayed at the Dreams resort.  They loved it and had a blast for what they said.  The only downfall for them was there was a lot of kids.  Good luck with your decision!

I am plnning mine at the Majestic Elegance!!! I am really excited about it! I have seen a lot of photos at the Paradisus Punta Cana which was another option for us.  The only thing to be leary about is all the resorts nickle and diming.  If your date is available I would do the wedding/reception either at the JellyFish Restaurant or on the La Barcaza wedding boat. 

 

We are doing the Symbolic wedding at the resort then the reception is going to be on La Barcaza.

 

Hope this helps and HAPPY PLANNING!
