Newbie - Can't decide a resort and/or location

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm new to the site and I am very excited to hear everyone's opinions and thoughts. FI and I got engaged in October at the Secrets Maroma, which I must say is really nice and exudes romance. The food was excellent.

 

The only thing we have decided on is a destination wedding, as we would like to have a smallish wedding (50 people or less) and we are thinking Oct or Nov of 2013. We are looking for somewhere warm with direct flights from Vancouver (Mexico, Jamaica, Costa Rica), affordable for the guests, and child friendly, an all inclusive resort that has somewhere a little more private for the ceremony. The privacy for the ceremony comes from the fact I watched 3 weddings while at SM, as the weddings are right beside the beach loungers. I also want the resort to have great food and a great beach. I don't know if this even exists. I am really hoping that it does, as I ideally would like to have everything in one location (i.e., stay at an all-inclusive resort, and have the ceremony and reception at the same place).

 

Alternatively I have looked into the Xcarat, but it seems maybe a little too expensive.

 

I have also looked into Al Cielo, as we went there for the day a few years ago and both the food and beach are amazing, but then I need to find an all-inclusive resort near Al Cielo. But ideally, I would love to find an all-inclusive resort that fits my criteria.

 

In advance, thank you very much for your suggestions and opinions and thanks for having me on the forum.

    • 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.
