2013 Paradisus Palma Real

Recommended Posts

Ladies, I just got back from the resort and it is absolutely gorgeous. The food and the service were great and all of our guests said they want to go back again. If you have any questions that I can answer, please let me know!
Hi Missy! Happy to hear everything turned out so wonderful for you! With less than a month underway, I'm starting to freak out a bit. How was the hair and makeup? Did you feel they did a great job? Also, you mentioned that you ventured off the resort a few times...did you have to book a taxi/car service in advance or did you guys rent a car? We are thinking about doing some photos outside the resort and just trying to figure this out. Would love to see pics from the resort if you have any to share. Thanks!

I thought my hair person did a nice job. I had clip-in extensions and she worked well with them. Of the three stylists doing my bridal party and I she was definitely the best. I am sorry, I do not remember her name, but it started with “Eu†if that helps at all. She also spoke English well. Some of the other girls did not like their hair as much, and I think that was partially due to a communication issue.

 

As for the make-up, it was ok. Again, there were some communication issues with some of the stylists. They also used OUR makeup which I thought was weird. I was expecting them to provide makeup, like they would at a makeup counter or salon in the US. One of the girls in the bridal party did not have foundation, and no one had her coloring, so she was kind of out of luck. I would say that if you have a member of your bridal party who is good with makeup, they could do just as good of a job as the salon did, and you could save $50 per person.

 

The cabs pull right up in front of the lobby of the hotel and you just hop right in- itâ€s very easy. You may just want to have the hotel confirm the price with the driver before you leave, so that both parties are clear.

So you had to bring/provide your own makeup? All makeup like foundation, eye shadow, mascara, etc? What's up with that?!?!?

Katya is great, we almost went with her but ended up using the photographer that shot her wedding. It was just a matter of style vs quality. If our photographer wasn't available, we would have definitely gone with her. Check out her blog for her style.

    • 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
