Yay! More Moon Palace 2013 Brides!! I got engaged this past September and have been stalking this site like crazy ever since! My TA has been in touch with Moon Palace and I have a tentative wedding date of May 31st, 2013!! We were told we need to pay for the bride&groom room in full in order to confirm our date so we will be doing that in the next few weeks (when we get our taxes back! haha) CANT WAIT!!!! I look forward to planning with all of you ladies!!

Hi!

 

We're hoping to get married April 13, 2013 (still need to pay deposit). It's been our dream to get married on the beach, but I've been reading through the Tripadvisor.com reviews and a lot of people made negative comments about the beach. Primarily too much seaweed? And that the water wasn't pretty? That forum is hard to get real information because some people are overly picky and others are clueless, so has anyone done an actual site visit? I've been to other Palace Resorts (Beach Palace, Vallarta Palace and day trip to the one on Isla Mueras) but haven't seen the Moon Palace...

 

Also, does anyone know if we HAVE to use the new Colin Cowie wedding packages? I was excited when I heard he was getting involved with the Palace Resorts, but I don't really like the new collections, and they seem to be a lot more money with a lot less perks...

 

Thanks!

Hi Ladies,

 

I am getting married April 22, 2013 at Moon Palace.  I did a site visit in December.  The beach is small, but I did not care too much.  There is seaweed, but all the nearby resorts who share the same beach have it too.  I think it depends on the tides, as to how much seaweed accumulates on the beach.  MP cleans the seaweed numerous times a day with a tractor.  Below is are photos of the beach from my site visit, including one where a wedding was taking place!

 

Regarding the new Colin Cowie packages, yes we have to use them in 2013.  I personally am doing the complimentary and add-ons as I did not love the collections.  If purple was my wedding color, I would have used that one as it is beautiful, but you cannot change the colors.

 

I look forward to planning with all of you!

Hello! I just got my confirmation email for our wedding date of March 14, 2013 at Moon Palance. I signed up for the complimentary wedding package and no deposit was required.  Does anyone know if we can add flowers to the complimentary wedding package or can we get them from a outside vendor? 

 

Congralutions to all on your engagement and happy wedding planning!

Hi All,

 

I am also looking at the Moon Palace for April 2013. Fell in Love with this resort and at the mo there is no other hotel for me! BDW has been an enormous help with all the great pics of weddings and terraces at the Moon Palace.

 

I'm a little stuck and disappointed as i am requesting quotes from numerous TA for 22 adults and 2 children...OMG... £53,000.00 is the cheapest quote and there is 7 quests only staying for 7 nights!

 

I have had a look at Palace resorts website and they are currently offering children eat and stay free, so i was hoping to get this in our quotes but nope full price!!!

 

I'm also wondering how the group amenties work. If you have 75 room nights (which we will be) the bride and groom get 7 complimentary nights. Does anyone know if this is applied when i book the wedding?

 

Ive e-mailed moon palace these questions but they have responded advising i need to book the wedding first before hey can advise? So Frustrating...

 

I'm loving the Colin Cowie packages... Exotic Peacock is my fav!

 

Any help on this resort will be much appreciated as i'm already getting stressed out with the cost of a group booking!

 

So excited for the wedding tho...

 

:-)

    • 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
