Barcelo or PB Pacifica?

Recommended Posts

Hi Cabo Brides,


I'm trying to decide between a 2014 wedding at Barcelo or a wedding at PB Pacifica. I'm leaning toward Pacifica mainly because I had the chance to visit it last month and it was beautiful! I also like that its about a 10min drive to town.


Barcelo looks great in pictures and would be a cheaper AI rate for my guests. Not to mention Barcelo's vendor rates are lower. Pacifica seems to have a huge markup on everything, but are willing to work with me on price.


I've heard mixed reviews about the wedding coordinators at each of these venues, both are pretty responsive at this point. Any advice?

I'm also looking at PB Pacifica for our October 2014 wedding.  I love the resort, but right now I'm working hard to get a good room rate for the room block.  Downside is the resort won't let us bring in outside vendors.  We can only pick from their preferred list...which they won't release until we sign a room block contact.  What has been your experience when interacting with the hotel?

    • 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.
