Had a reply from our TA for pricing... more than we wanted, but not undoable. However the best package I can get for this gives me 1 week to get everyone's deposits in! That is very disappointing. We may end up looking into Riu Negril, they had the next best pricing. I have my heart set on GPJ though, so we'll see!

Looks like we may be getting it after all! Decided that between this or Riu, for the extra cost I think that this is the better choice. Now just have to try and get deposits in, dates booked, and then away we go!

I so far have found it difficult all our guests are booking individualy as some are going for different times flight upgrades etc so far we have 8 booked with another 3 booking this week and then 3 more in a couple of weeks then about 8 or 9 whenever they can. 

 

I went dress shopping on monday and loved the 2nd dress i tried on exciting stuff.

If you don't mind me asking, what was the rate you received?

I'm wondering what the private dinner reception prices are like. I heard it includes a dinner in the a la carte restaurants but it isn't private

I have read some reviews and the price for the private reception are around $45/person, depending on what you select for the menu. You can select either the Poseidon or Blue Lagoon restaurant and you have it from 6-10pm. I believe the free a la carte is for a maximum of 30 persons, and there is a private buffet option which is for groups of 50 or more if you want a buffet style.

Thank you! The coordinator did get back to me with pricing and all the menus, so this pretty much sums up what she told me.

Received some bad news today that the Blue Lagoon is already booked for our date. Not very impressed as my fiance has a severe allergy to seafood and fish, and Poseidon is a seafood restaurant. I don't really trust that even if they can serve non-seafood dishes. I'm not really keen on taking a risk like that on such an important day. I am hoping there are other options for a private reception otherwise I may have to change resorts. I really don't want to spend more than $45/person, which is already steep enough, for the private buffet. Guess booking a year in advance wasn't early enough...

My son is having the same problems, so has handed it over to me to sort out.  Rui is booked for most of January, so we are scrambling again with dates and location.

We are now looking at this resort. I am not familiar with it. Adult only resort are out because of children attending.

 

So the $45.00 per person price they quoted is for a buffet as well, not a sit down?

    • 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
