Any Other Secrets Capri 2012-13 Brides Out There?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

After lots of searching for resorts, i'm very close to deciding on Secrets Capri.  Is there anyone out there who has recently married there or plans to?  Thanks!

My TA mentioned this one to me when I was looking for properties - she stayed there three times, and had also stayed at Secrets Maroma and Secrets Silversands. She actually mentioned that the other two are both newer than the Secrets Capri, and Maroma beach is rated one of the top 10 beaches. Have you thought about the others at all?

Thanks Jordan,

 

I originally wanted Secrets Maroma.  However, i decided it may be too expensive for some of our guests.  I really like the look and layout of Capri over Silversands and The Vine.  But it's tough to find anyone who can provide input on having a wedding there.  The wedding planners on site at the resort have been very forthcoming with info and provide quick replies to my questions.  They've provided beautiful photos of their wedding set ups.  I think we're going to go ahead with Secrets Capri.  Hopefully we choose right!  

 

I see you're having your wedding at The Royal.  I've heard nice things about your resort as well.  I like that they'll allow children on-site to attend the wedding.

You should give Doris a call if you're having doubts - she can probably give you some good feedback! You may also consider having a TA book your wedding guests. I originally hadn't planned to, but when I reached out to a few of the hotels I was considering about block rates, they all asked who my TA was before they'd give me anything, so I got in touch with her. She ended up not only helping me decide which resort was best for what I wanted, but also got me a great deal on rooms, and a bridal deal where my FI and I get $50 back for every room our guests book to help pay for ours (and guests don't know this). So far we have booked 20 rooms with our wedding, so $1000 back for us! (I also then don't have to mess with helping guests who arent travel savvy book, which is awesome.) Using any TA, whoever you choose, shouldnt cos't you anything, and I didnt have to put any money down to hold rooms or guarantee a certain amount or anything (some ask you too, I know).

 

So far I have been really happy with the Royal! You're right that they do allow kids day-of, and there are two other Real Resorts sister properties right next to it, so if the Royal is too expensive for anyone, they can also stay at one of the others, for less money (and they're kid friendly) and they still count as Real guests, so it doesn jack my wedding price up!

 

I'm sure if you go with Capri, it will be perfect! Good luck with all the planning :)

    • 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.
