2013 Paradisus Palma Real

Recommended Posts

Hi! My PPR wedding is scheduled for July 2013. We are excited about the resort. Does anyone know the difference between Olympus Beach and Olympus Terrace? The photo on Picasso web titled "Olympus Terrace" is a photo of a beach reception and I've seen photos of other receptions on a paved terrace called "Olympus Terrace." Past brides please help!

I think we are. Is there an extra charge for HDC? Where exactly is the $1000 outside photographer fee in writing? I didn't see that on the contract or the price calculator.

Hey Ev whats your date? I'm also getting married July 2013. We thought to do a site visit but once you book since the $500 is non-refundable I dont think seeing the resort would change anything. I almost went this week but I had a family emergency that forced me to fly to GA instead.

I think the photographer fee is something new for 2012.  It's not in the calculator by your wedding planner should make you aware of it.

I did a site visit in March for my wedding this November...Olympus Terrace is next to the pool on a paved surface.  Very nice location if you don't want it on the beach :)  Let me know if you have any more questions...

Hey DP1 the $1,000 charge is in writing. It's not on the calculator but it's in the packet the Romance Planner sent me. I also outright asked her (Lauren) because I still didn't believe it after I saw it and she confirmed it. For me, it's the only thing I didn't like about Paradius. Photography is so important to me so I'm planning on paying the fee. I think you can avoid it of the photographer is a guest. Another photographer said they stay for one night as a guest to get around the fee. Not sure if that trick will work but it's worth a shot. Even if the photographer stood for the minimum 3 days it's still slightly cheaper than the $1,000.

EVKnowsitall.. our wedding is in June 2013.. My mom actually told me that it doesnt make sense to make a site visit,  Since my family is from DR i wanted to visit them and drive out to the resort and check things out. I would like to have my ceremony at the  Nuestra Señora de Pilar catholic church and then have the reception at the resort.

    • 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.
