Majestic Colonial 2014

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone, I'm freaking out a little cause I really want our wedding at Majestic Colonial, but don't want our guest to have to re-mortgage their houses to afford it! I've seen a lot of posts that people have been getting a TA to get group rates and start booking about a year in advance. We are getting married April 17th, 2014 at Majestic Colonial with the majority of our guests departing from Toronto, Ontario. So we decided to try to get some pricing for travel but it is around $2000 PER PERSON (7-days including flights and hotel). I have been to Majestic before and never paid anywhere close to this price. Does anyone think it is just too early to book anything and also, if you have guest flying from Toronto, what prices did you get? Maybe I need to find a better TA.

Hi,

 

I just got some quotes this week for Majestic Colonial from Toronto for March 2014. The quotes I have received ranged from $1475-1800 depending on the day (cheapest was departing mid-week and not around march break).  My TA said there is no competition between the companies to book this early so no one is offering deals.  She also said with whatever company it was (signature maybe) every 15th person is free (just have to pay the taxes) so could knock around $100 off each person if you had 30 guests going. 

 

That does seem really high for April though... I don't know if it would be better to wait another month and see what the price does... only problem is if the weddings get booked up at the resort.

Hi - We booked at the Colonial for Feb 9-16 and we have received a fuel saver discount through Sunwing for $160 a person for the tax.  Our guests are paying around $1600 a person for a junior suite.  Kids are $1100 each.

Hi ladies! I'm getting married April 2nd 2014 at the Majestic Colonial. I want a civil ceremony but I asked for a date confirmation from the civil judge since the beginning of January.... 3 months ago and still no news from him! Is there anybody else in the same situation? Does anybody received a confirmation from the civil judge in Punta Cana for her wedding in 2014???

Did you ask your wc? I wonder if they would know. I'm only doing a symbolic ceremony. I feel like they should have at least replied back by now.
Yes I'm constently in contact with my WC but she says that the civil judge will open his 2014 agenda "soon"... that's since the beginning of January... I can't wait to have it all confirm! :)

I am currently in the process of booking my wedding for April 16th, 2014. We have guests leaving from Newfoundland, Nova Scotia and Toronto. We currently only have our quote for Newfoundland and it is approximately $1800. I feel like Toronto is usually cheaper. If you do end up booking your wedding, I will see you there :)

MC-Colonial....I found the same thing in waiting for judge schedule to open. I tried for a civil ceremony (for March 2014) & waited for a judge reply (via WC) since Jan.  We have since decided to marry at home (Canada) secretly then a symbolic one in MC. We immediately got booked and we were off & running. It took a bit of convincing the FI but the symbolic ceremony can mimic a civil one so closely that nobody will know & it will still feel. The marriage at home is just a formality, sign papers & done. No kiss or rings. Best decision thus far... besides the man, of course! lol

    • 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.
