Costa Rica DW Review

Recommended Posts

Angie-

I go to the Guanacaste area to visit my BF who is a wedding coordinator for Tropical Occasions (Cheryl you may know her, her name is Brynn), she covers that area. I love love love love it there. I was going to do my wedding there, but my FI's family wants us to do Mexico. Argh!!! I also don't want BRynn to have to work on my wedding day, hee hee... If you need any info I just got back from there last week and could get you in touch with Brynn if you wanted some of your questions answered.

 

Cherly great to hear you are working with tropical occasions. Congrats

Yep, I met Brynn while we were down there scouting around. My FH and I really wanted to do the wedding in Playa del Coco but they didn't really have much in the way of accommodations. We would have been fine but some of our guests (like our parents) ... not so much.

 

Tropical Occasions has been great to work with thus far!

Hi Angie,

 

It's getting down to the wire. Just a couple weeks until our wedding at Costa Verde. Any last minute advice on do's or don'ts? Anything you wish you done differently that you haven't already mentioned?

Sorry! I am so late on responding. I am not sure if you are doing your flowers through Costa Verde, but I would strongly advise on not asking for roses. I would just go with the tropical flowers, plus they are cheaper!

 

The picture below shows the two bouquets I ordered. The one with the roses was supposed to be mine, but I thought it was just too small and it was way more expensive!!!!

Hi Baybug!

 

I hate to bother you, but I am also getting married at Costa Verde on March 21st of 2009. I found your review incredibly helpful! I had a couple questions about Costa Verde which I would really appreciate help on, if you don't mind.

 

(1) Why did you choose el Avion? We are thinking of having the reception at El Anaconda, but can't get a straight answer out of Carol regarding whether we can have a band there.

(2) We are going to get married at the tent at the end of the adult pool at the "toldo". We couldn't decide between that and the Event Center, but finally chose the Toldo since it seemed more open. Did you happen to see this area?

(3) how much did your band charge you?

 

Thanks for your help!

 

Dominique

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
