I've wondered if my guests would want them or not- I had heard that they smell funny, hmm...have to think about that one.
Sarah,

They are a bit stinky, but I kept them in a bag the whole time. Maybe you can air them out for a few days prior to giving them out.

I'm not sure if she took them... I don't want to throw accusations out, but yeah.... ugh... aggravating situation!

Wow, Karla that totally sucks about the starfish. What a pain. I would be upset too, if for no other reason than that you didn't have them for Natasha.

 

And the candle situation sounds like a pain too. I am really sorry to hear about that.

 

What I am pleased to hear is that you enjoyed the Marquis so much. I am so excited now :)

Karla, Thanks for all your advice its greatly appreciated

 

Sarah, I have tons of starfish at home and they do smell at first but they just need to be dried out...so keep them on your balcony when ur at the resort and just stick thm out in the sun for a couple days and than the smell will go away

I'm trying to organize my pics, hopefully by this weekend I can send you some of the Marquis. We also visited the spa. It was pricey but felt great to be pampered. The spa was really nice.

Edyta,

 

I was about to scan in the Aqua menu for you, when I realized that since I talked to the concierge at the Marquis in Spanish when I made the dinner reservation, he relayed the msg back to Aqua and told them that both of us were Spanish speakers. So the menu they gave us is all in Spanish. I don't think it would be helpful to you. If you still want it, let me know.

    • 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.
