2013 Paradisus Palma Real

Recommended Posts

@ angelnjewels we didn't do the group rate in the end.... My family all got better deals booking air and hotel together! We are getting married in July and most people booked back in January average price was $1500 per person air and hotel for 7 days 6 nights from newark nj direct flights! And that is in the reserve! Honestly it is worth it to do a package especially since u are paying for your parents! My sister her husband and two kids paid 3200 for 5 nights air and hotel in the main resort for 5 days for nights total for everyone.

Wow!!! What a great price. Not bad at all. Do you suggest waiting to book flights and hotels until a few months before the event? My wedding is in April of 2014 and I have been looking now and it is soooo expensive.

I had a good debrief with them yesterday and I understand what the mishaps were a result of. Just over communicate and don't sweat the small things and you will have an amazing day. I'm a PR manager and events are part of my job so my expectation levels are off the chart.

 

Now that everyone is gone, we are having a blast on our honeymoon. We upgraded to an oceanfront room in Royal Service and it is spectacular. The private pool and beach areas have become our sanctuary. Francisco at the beach will get you the beds and Gloria the bartender was awesome.

 

If anyone is planning to use a car service for trips outside the resort, book through Romance. Yessica got us a great deal $150 for 4 hours and he took us wherever we wanted. His name was Cesar and he was amazing. He carried my shoes and bottles of water throughout Altos de Chavon in the sweltering heat.

 

Best of luck and let me know if I can answer any other questions.

Thanks for the Info Rotha!! I appreciate your honesty...I know we all do...

 

How did you get the ocean front room in royal service? Thats what my fiance and i want but are not sure if the Romance office will upgrade us to that.

 

Just wondering...

Hi Kel,

 

Thank you for your info. Wow I cant believe your price...Good Job!!! Since we decided to get married during high season everything is super expensive. I looked online this week for rooms at PPR during March of 2014 and its at 600 or more a night its ridiculous. We were able to get them for 232 so now i am feeling a bit better. Just waiting for Jetblue to release their flights which i think will be next month at some time.  I really hope!!! I have to start booking for my parents and figure out what we are going to do.

 

 

Not sure that we will have an at home reception now because i think its just going to be an added expense. I am still sure...

Is that 232 per person? I am still searching for prices too. Not sure when I want to book. Maybe I will check pricing after summer is over.

Hi Bridetobe2014, Yes it's per person per night minimum 3 nights. This was the price given to me by my travel agent for March of next year. The romance team give me 246 pp per night but our travel agent got a bit cheaper... The prices for summer I think may be 180 and up depending on who you book with.

Your pictures are amazing, congrats on a beautiful wedding! I'm getting married in November at the gazebo too and I'm a little concerned about the bride's entrance from the side, how did you find that? Are all of the guests able to see you and were there a lot of people walking by or any other distractions?
I was worried abt the bridge as well but it turned out to be totally fine. Everyone could see us and it actually made for some really pretty pictures (our guests even snapped some great shots). The romance team was great abt making sure no one was in the vicinity of the wedding. When I was waiting to walk down the aisle I saw Natalia redirecting people that were checking in and going to their rooms around the area of the wedding so nothing was disrupted. Here are some pics... 400 400 400 400 400

It was so hard to leave! Although we had a rocky start, they definitely made it up to us. They surprised us with a truly romantic evening. Dinner at Passions (by far our best meal at the resort - if you're the foodie type) with wine selection by sommelier with each course and there were a ton. When we got back to our room, everything was covered in rose petals and they had a bottle of champagne chilling with chocolate covered strawberries and a rose filled bubble bath. We knew they were going to do something special for us, but it definitely exceeded our expectations. This shows me the resort does care, you just need to make sure you over communicate everything for them to get it. Not sure if I mentioned it but Royal Service is worth it, especially if you are staying during your honeymoon. We barely used the exclusive areas when our guests were there and noticed a big difference after they left and started using the Royal Service areas. No pics from my photographer yet :( Apparently 2-3 weeks for sneak pics and 6 for the finished product. That's what I get for using a perfectionist :)

Thank you!! :) We had my husbands brother choose his own reading but the ceremony wording was provided by the resort. I guess if you want a specific wording, you could give it to your wedding coordinator and they will use it. We brought our own sand and containers for the unity sand. We didn't do programs but I think other brides have brought the programs with them. I opted to do itineraries that included wedding ceremony/cocktail party/reception times & locations and menus for the reception. Natalia, our wedding coordinator was there each step of the way leading everyone and communicating what was next and where to all of our guests (including when we had to move the reception location for the last 40 minutes because of rain). Hope that helps!

    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
