Hello, newy here!

One question, does anybody knows how hot it gets around June? I booked Las Olas for cocktail and reception and not sure if should change it to Oregano. I believe they don't have a lot of options for small receptions with air conditioner.

Any review you might have on any  of this places would be greatly appreciated!  :wub: 

Thank you!

It can get pretty warm. I think that Las Olas is actually your best option for a small group. How many are in your group? We had 30 and had cocktails at Las Olas and the reception in the Lobster House (they only allow that on Fridays). Las Olas is so pretty b/c it's right on the beach and the breeze is beautiful! I would suggest bringing string lights for them to hang for you.

We were married at the end of June and it was HOT. A "feels like" temp over 90 each day. We had our ceremony at the beach gazebo, cocktail at Las Olas and reception at Oregano with 40 guests.

Of the 3, Oregano was the warmest because it is partially enclosed and the beach breeze is somewhat blocked. They also put up a fake wall next to the DJ booth which further blocks the breeze. We had them take down the wall midway through the reception because it was so hot and that helped a lot. If you do choose Oregano I would suggest telling your coordinator to exclude the fake wall... it's really not necessary because the location is already private enough.

We were really happy with Oregano for the reception, the size was perfect and the room itself is nicely decorated... but it was very warm. I think Las Olas would be a good spot as well, especially for 30 people. We had the cocktail hour there and there was a nice breeze. Plus it's very cute and you really get the "on the beach" experience.

    • 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.
