Newbies considering Paradisus Palma Real

Recommended Posts

Hey Girls-


As someone who recently tore apart the pricing spreadsheets provided by the hotel, I want to give y'all some advise...don't base your budget on this sheet.  My fiancee and I really wanted to plan a wedding at the Paradisus Palma Real but, after using the spreadsheet to make a 'mock budget', we didn't know if it would financially be feasible. 


In comes my new best friend, Theresa, who is a wedding planner. She is now on her own, but she previously worked for the Paradisus and helped create some of the wedding packages.  Based on her experience from working there (and from personal experience from planning her son's wedding there), she was able to tell me what's a waste of money, what is needed, etc.  She knows how to cost effectively use the wedding packages to your advantage in order to keep your costs low.  After only one phone call with her (and this was before we even agreed to officially work together), she had dropped my budget by at least $6,000 (and that's just a start). 


My fiancee and I are now completely comfortable that we'll be able to meet our budget, and my stress level has gone way down.  Theresa's fee is reasonable, and she waves half of her fee if you refer someone.  Now...I'm not telling you guys this just so I can get my referral discount.  She truly has done everything that I've said above, and I'm excited to start working with her.  She works directly with the hotel (and not the Miami office) and, since she knows all of the hotel wedding planning people, she gets things done quickly. This is so helpful when you're a bride who wants answers in a timely manner.


I highly recommend her to y'all.  If you have any questions for me or want her info, just shoot me a PM.


Congrats on your engagements!

    • 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
