Hi everyone, we just got back from Cap Cana from last weekend and have our date set a month after you carori. We had an AMAZING time, they took care of us very well and the pricing has been great so far. After dealing with several other resorts and them not budging on price or completely horrible communication, we decided to get in contact with Cap Cana and eventually fly down (which we did). We were in contact with the VA office, they would write back quickly so we knew we were onto to something, eventually we were passed on to Sarah and that's who we met in the resort. She took great care of us and showed us around the resort, we are very excited and are willing to help anyone out with any questions. We opted for the Europen Room rates instead of the all inclusive, the majority of our party will be staying at the Fishing Village and coming over to Sanctuary to hang out during the day.
The resort was going through some renovations, but they should be up and running at 100% by the winter. I am Dominican and my fiancee is American (but speaks spanish) so we were able to switch from one to the other and check to see how the staff members were. The majority of our party will be English speaking, and we are expecting from 80-120 guests. The main thing that is different from this resort compared to lets say the Barcelo resorts and Paradisus Palma Real that we visited was the service. We went to a wedding in Barcelo and it was ok (bad service, screw ups), Paradisus Palma Real was nice but they had horrible communication and they wouldnt budge on price and wanted kids under 10 (which we will have 15) to pay $90 per kid per day which is ridiculous.
Anyway, after seeing all the wedding packages available, this will be an epic wedding with what we are going for. If any of you brides or grooms have any questions feel free to contact me or share anything. The resort treated us perfect, the service was amazing and the food was the best ive had in any resort in Punta Cana. I loved the fact that our guests wont have to wear stupid bands and have towel cards, and that they will have a seperate check in available for our guests for the wedding party alone.
