Sanctuary Cap Cana Brides

Recommended Posts

We are getting married at the Sanctuary in June 2013 . We visited in June 2012 to check it out and it was beautiful. It took us a long time to get our contract worked out but eventually it all got signed. They were very quick to respond at first but I think they have been going through some personnel changes recently. I haven't tried communicating with them much lately (once we got our contract worked out we still had 10 months to plan) so we will see how it goes when we pick the talks back up. -Michelle

I love this place, but am also having trouble getting information on wedding packages/pricing. After searching a lot I finally found a website (other than the Facebook one), but the links do not work to look at pictures or wedding stuff. I found an e-mail to contact them, and got a quick response from Jose Valejo. He said unfortunately he cannot give me any rates b/c right now they only have prices until April 2013. I find it REALLY hard to believe that they are only booking weddings 3 months in advance. Any one else had this problem? I do not want to give up on this place, but am curious where I can get more info. on the packages they offer....???

Hey @redheadedone - have you been in touch with the new resort about your wedding this June?  Are they still honoring your original package or have they changed their packages?

I have had about zero luck communicating with the new management company.  I was reassured right after the management change not to worry, that their level of service, etc would remain the same and everything would be taken care of for the wedding.  We are now on our 3rd wedding coordinator and she is no longer responding to emails so I am guessing that she doesn't work there anymore either.  They are also not taking reservations past April 15th, so none of our guests are able to book their rooms.  I have asked numerous times what's going on with this and have gotten no response.  I saw a posting to their Facebook page asking about construction in January, and they response from Sanctuary was "No, we have no major construction going on during the winter season from January-April 15th."  I am starting to worry that the new management company has some major construction plans for the summer and they aren't taking reservations cause they might not know what parts or the resort they are closing - or horror of horrors, if they are just shutting the place down to do work on it.  It makes me very nervous that no one is telling me what's going on because they don't know what to do with our wedding and are somehow going to screw us over.  We are under contract with them and they already have deposits from us for both our room contract and wedding contract so they better be honored!

No, actually the new management company has been quick to reply through e-mail (info@sanctuarycapcana.com). But after I was told they aren't booking any weddings after April 2013, I decided to move on to planning my wedding at another place. My travel agent said they're future might be "unsure" (for whatever reason), but didn't have any more information. It's like no one can find out what's going on!! I do hope that everything works for you girls!

That's basically my biggest fear, that they are shutting down the resort for some time (whether is be for renovations, to sell it, etc) and they just aren't telling me because they are trying to work out some legal issues before dropping the bomb on me.  I have emailed the wedding POC 4 times now with no response, tried the Facebook page, info@sanctuarycapcana.com email, etc.  I did get a canned response saying "we received your email and will get back to you shortly" from the "info" email - but they didn't answer my questions.  I don't see how it can be so hard to give me a straight answer.  We have probably a dozen people who already have plane tickets to the wedding.  Some were able to book rooms before they took the system down and have confirmation codes, others were told by the resort that they would take down their information and let them know when the system was back up for bookings.  I definitely feel like we are being lied to.  I have no idea what will happen if they somehow cancel our wedding.......

Hi guys!

 

Has anyone been able to communicate with the "wedding planner" at Sanctuary?  My wedding is the end of March and I cannot get ahold of anyone.  Any suggestions are welcome!

Hi Annabel, I'm also marrying in March :) my wedding planner now is Kary Gomez, her email is kgomez@sanctuarycapcana.com. They have changed emails cause of the new administration. I don't have her direct phone number but I always call the resort's number: +1 809-562-9191 and ask for her, it works for me, they always put me through.

 

I hope everything goes well with your wedding :)

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
