which resort in Punta Cana?

Recommended Posts

Hey there!  My fiance and I have settled on Punta Cana for a wedding (hopefully next fall), but we're a bit stuck on which resort to have it at.  Affordability for guests is a big consideration.. and obviously food, drinks, relaxation, and fun.  

 

We're staying at the Majestic Elegance in January for a few days, and are also going to look at Melia Caribe.  Does anyone have suggestions for other resorts that we should look at while we're down there?  

 

I appreciate your help!

When we did our site visit we wanted to look at the Majestic Elegance but we were not able to because we did not have an appointment.  I have heard nothing but great things about the Majestic properties though.  We stayed at the Melia Caribe and we looked at Dreams Punta Cana.  We also looked at Riu Palace Punta Cana, which is the resort we decided to go with so ofcourse I will suggest looking there :)  We were very limited on time when we went but if we had more time I would of wanted to check out the Hard Rock too as it seems like such a big fun resort.  We will prob take a cab and go to the Hard Rock one night while we are in DR for a night of gambling and just to hang out.

 

Good luck with your decision!  Enjoy your site visit and let us all know what you decide!

I'm biased obviously since I'm getting married there but the Paradisus Palma Real is next door to the Melia Caribe (they're owned by same company btw) so it wouldn't be too far out of your way. ;)

What did you think of the Melia?  We booked the Jellyfish for wedding and reception, but are working with a TA to book our resort.  The Melia is super close to the Jellyfish, which is nice, but I have heard somewhat mixed reviews of the resort itself.  We are also considering Dreams PB PC and ME/MC.

I attended my brother's wedding at the Excellence Punta Cana in March of 2010 and it was absolutely beautiful. I'm actually considering the Excellence in Mexico because of how wonderful their wedding was and how awesome my sister-in-law said they were to work with.

 

Her day went off flawlessly. We had about 40 people that traveled with us and we all had an amazing time! The customer service was exceptional, the rooms were great (not very updated, but not bad), the pools, beach, entertainment and activities were all great.

 

The only reason I'm not going back there is because there will be a lot of the same people attending my wedding and I want to bring them to a different location.

    • 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.
