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!

Congrats to all brides. I've just found this forum and LOVE it! I'm trying to narrow it down to a resort right now too - so hard! Our wedding will hopefully be late march 2013

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
