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.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
    • I know it is really tough job to get everything at best cost. I would like to suggest to contact local wedding planner or decorators to get the quotes. It will take some time but by comparing different quotes you will get the best package.
