I know it's easy to say.... I'm trying to say the same thing to myself but it's rather hard to not by nickpicking about little stuff.  Now....where is my email response from WC Katia Nunez?????  Arghhhh

We are getting married in October as well! And Katia is our WC...not too far from you either. We are struggling a bit as well. Are you using any outside vendors??

yea but she went through cheap carribbean n it was some low point right after the summertime they were having some sales in all travel sites. My wedding is also on a holiday week (2/23 week of presidents week where a lot of schools have off) and she was the only 1 who lucked out. every1 else paid over 1k for just the weekend. I think she was the only 1 who paid under lol.

Let's try that again....even our wedding guests who were not staying at either resort hung out with us at gran caribe into wee hours, after the wedding and reception. By the way our wedding was on 9/4/12. Half the guests stayed at Royal, others at Grab Caribe. About 4 stayed at outside hotels.

 

Where do you hang out at the Caribe after your reception?

Thank you.  I've heard some brides here talk about Margaritaville.  I assume it's walkable right?  Is it a club?

It has been almost a week since I emailed her my first set of questions.  I have not heard back from her sad.gif

I would call them. Sometimes she even answers the phone. You definitely have to light the fire under her to get what you need. But when she does answer, she can be helpful.

 

How is your planning coming along? Are you visiting the resort beforehand?

How did you make out with this? We have a similar issue...

    • 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
