Royalton Punta Cana 2014

Recommended Posts

Hi ladies, I am seriously considering this resort for our 2015 wedding. However, I haven't been able to find much info online, especially pictures. Does anyone have any pictures or pricelists (besides the standard wedding package info) they could send me? My email is cherylk1234@@gmail.com.

 

Thank you so much! :)

@@Potter8...i have over 60 guests, and the only extras i got was the extra tier on my cake and half price for the children that will be attending. I am hosting a Welcome party ($15 pp). I opted to host this in close proximity to a bar, that way I wouldnt have to pay $25pp for open bar for my guests. I havent paid for my package yet because I'm still trying to negotiate some things. I am not pleased with what they have had to offer at this point.

My wedding is officially all paid for. The only "deal" I was offered was a $30 credit towards my bouquet as I didn't choose one that was included in my package. I'm hoping that once I get on site and meet the wedding planner I can negotiate a little more.

I forget who is using vacation expression but my travel agent told me that a welcome reception is included for Groups. I think it would be great if everyone added cost after you have sent your payment off. I definitely will do this my payment is due may 12th

I am planning to do the same thing as you.  Wedding at Jellyfish and having the guests stay at the Royalton.  Did the Royalton do anything special for you in terms of having a complimentary welcome party or dinner rehearsal?  what were your room rate quotes per night per person?

 

thanks!!!

 

 

Can you also send me prices for Royalton- timairee.s.sutton@@gmail.com

Hey Ladies,

 

I'm a travel agent here in Canada. I am planning a wedding for myself May 2015 and thought it would be a good idea to see the most popular Punta Cana wedding venues for not only myself but for my future brides. I just got back yesterday from Punta Cana. I went with a bridesmaid to check out resorts and venues. I stayed at Memories, Royaltons sister property (Royalton was fully booked) for 4 days and stayed at Now Larimar for 3 days. I did a site visit at Jellyfish, Kukua and Huracan. If you have any questions I may be able to answer them. Even after seeing all these properties and what they have to offer I'm still not 100% sure which one I am choosing but I did definitely eliminate some options after seeing the wedding locations and witnessing some weddings.

Let me know if you have any questions!

@@Mrsoats...Could you provide feedback for the Royalton?

Unfortunately we did not stay at the Royalton but I did do a site visit of the area plus some of the facilities were shared with Memories so hopefully i can give you a decent idea...

The resort is very modern and beautiful, beach was very nice. The beach wasn't too crowded though the spots with shade were always taken. We showed up at the beach around 845am so I'm not sure how early you need to go for shade. The only restaurant Memories guests were allowed to use was their casual beach buffet. The food there was excellent. I did manage to have a dinner at the steakhouse because if I do my wedding at Royalton that would be the menu I would choose so the manager allowed me. I was floored by the food at this restaurant. I swear the filet mignon I had was better than any Keg or Ruth Chris filet I've had before! Honestly I couldn't stop talking about that entire meal all week. The service was excellent! So friendly and everyone had a smile on their face. They showed me their cheapest room and it was very nice, I know my guests would be happy with it (no tub though, need to upgrade). 

Regarding ceremony locations... They have the Beach gazebo. Very nice but be prepared for at least 100 half naked people standing 3 feet from you while you say your vows. That gazebo is the main walkway onto the beach. Very pretty though if you don't mind an audience! They have their other gazebo near the lobby. This was personally my favourite though still not quite private. Again it is the main walkway to the pool and beach from the lobby and they said they cannot close it for the ceremony. I would say that this was more private though than the beach. Now they are currently building as we speak their third gazebo. I had a peek from a far. It is located between the Memories and Royalton. This will definitely be the most private location because there are doors you need to walk through and then the gazebo is in a clearing in their little jungle they have. Its kind of like a lagoon in some areas with water so my only concern with this location would maybe be mosquitoes? 

For reception my two favourite private locations was that area in the center of the resort were ceremonies can take place. And second favourite location would be a terrace area between the two pools right by the beach. Its covered with that white tent they have in a few of the areas of the resort which I'm sure you have all seen in photos. 

Let me know if I missed anything!

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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.
