Need Help from Previous WonderBrides - The Royal PDC

Recommended Posts

Hi Brides,


I got engaged in July 2012 and I'm getting a head start on my Feb 2014 wedding. I think (after much trawling and thread reading) that I've decided on The Royal Playa Del Carmen for my wedding. I had research venues in California and Florida and have gone out of my way to see them... let's just say it was very stressful and disappointing... especially with my mother's 'help'. After umming and ahhing about it, I discussed it with my fiance and decided to do what WE obviously, and not try to please everyone. I chose Mexico as it is in the middle-ish, we have family coming from the East Coast, West Coast and England.


I spent countless hours looking at places, getting stressed and confused, constantly getting that knot in my stomach. But when I found this site it was like my saving grace. I can't tell you how much you brides have all helped me!!! THANK YOU a million times over!!


I have found a TA, I am using Wendy from Wright Travel (again, thanks to recommendations), and am going to have a go-see/mini vacay in January with my Fi. I am so excited!! I hope I am as happy when I get there as I have been when looking at all of your pictures.


Does anyone have anything that they wish they had known to ask for before booking? Any hidden costs? Anything to negotiate?


Likewise, If anyone has any definite NO-NO's when it comes to the Royal, please let me know, I want to go armed with as much info as I can!!


Which areas did you choose to have your Ceremony/Cccktail Hour/Reception and WHY? Is there anything you would have changed?


Also, if anyone is willing to share the cost, quality and conditions of their photography packages I would be eternally grateful!


Thanks again,

    • 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.
