Newbie planning for April 2014

Recommended Posts

Hi Girls,


I've been looking through this site for a few weeks since our engagement but decided to start my own thread :)  My fiance and I got engaged Nov 5 at the Iberostar Ensenachos...our second time there.  We absolutely love it and are thinking of booking our wedding there in April 2014 as it now has a very special place in our hearts.


In looking through the posts, it doesn't seem like a lot of couples chose Cuba, which has me a bit worried.  Has anyone been married or been to a wedding at the Ensenachos?  I would love to hear your feedback :)


I've been obsessing over trip advisor since we've been engaged and the reviews have been terrible lately (for the past month)!  The posts used to be mainly 5 out of 5 with rave reviews.  It really has me worried because I am so concerned that some of our guests won't be happy.  I do realize you can't make everyone happy, but I want to be sure we are picking the right place and in my heart, that's the place, but I'd be embarrased if any of our guests went on trip advisor now!! 


Would love to hear from anyone who's had an experience at (or even in Cuba) this resort!


All the best to all the brides-to-be out there :)

Welcome Jessica! 


We got engaged Oct. 27, 2011 and are planning a March 2013 wedding. I'd say you have the perfect timeframe to get everything in order. 


Keep an open mind and also remember that you will probably change your mind 20 times on what exactly you want. I would suggest waiting until much closer to your wedding to finalize details. 


Good luck!

    • 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.
