Newbie here, of course in need of some help. Kinda long winded, sorry!
My DH and I are planning to renew our vows for our 20th July 2014. The original plan was to do the Boston to Bermuda cruise. I had everything planned out and set. Ceremony, music, OOT bags with welcome book, website info, precruise meeting, travel arrangements to ship and back, reception, preceremony activites, flowers, dress- everything.
It was brought to my attention that requesting the financials and the time needed for a week long cruise would be alot to ask of people so we started looking at all inclusives. My Brother in law and now sister in law did one in Mexico and it was beautiful. So I went about finding a place. And I found one I liked, scratch that loved. Majestic Colonial Punta Cana DR. It had everything I was looking for.
After some research, I came to find out that there were alot of stomach issues in the reviews. It has been said it could be caused by a few things, the water or the malaria shots taken by some guests and some said the food but I take those reviews at face value as we all have different tolerances. Anyways, when my DH saw the same thing, the location was nixed. My heart sank... again!
So Cruise, out. Dom Rep, out. Mexico, last resort as we have already had a family wedding there. Any help in finding a place ould be so helpful so I am picking your brains for ideas.
Here are some of the things I want in my location:
Beach or non beach option
Palm Trees ( easiest one)
Kids allowed ( we have kids randing from 12 mo to 18 yrs so far) with kids clubs
swim up bar ( just love these)
swim up rooms (if we can)
can accomodate 40 people I am inviting with 25 family I know for sure that will be attending
great excursions ( family and guests will be there for 5 days and my dh and I are staying a total of 10)
Rates around 220-250 a night.
Ok If you want to see my perfect choice to know what I am looking for it was the Majestic Colonial in Punta Cana.http://www.tripadvis...n_Republic.html
Any help or suggestions would be fantastic.
Thanks in advance!
