Venue hunting coming up! AHH!

Recommended Posts

Hi Ladies! 


My FI and I will be visiting Puerto Vallarta at the end of October 2012 to scout locations for our Nov 2013 ceremony and reception. We'd ideally find an intimate smaller hotel where all of our 80 guests can stay.


Our WC will be taking us to Hacienda San Angel, Hacienda San Pancho, Patio Los Arcos (Club Regina), Velas Vallarta, Bel Air and Garza Blanca Resort. (We are open to seeing a couple of large resorts.)


Does anyone have any thoughts about these places? Any other suggestions? ANY feedback on these places is helpful.

Hi Sandoval!


Those all sound beautiful, and great options for a party of 80. Take photos and share your experiences!

Velas Vallarta is incredible - I have a lot of positive things to say about their property and staff.


Good luck and happy planning!

I got married in San Pancho, my wife is the wedding coordinator at Garza Blanca and I have shot weddings in all of the other hotels except for the Hacienda San Angel. All of those hotels are very nice and very different from each others so I am sure you will find the one for you. You can send me a message if you would like to see some of our wedding galleries to see what their weddings look like!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
