Starting To Plan - Need Tips

Recommended Posts

Good evening, I am new to this site. My fiancé and I are very much interested in Punta Cana, we have been there and we loved it. Any tips on where to start? Which resorts do you all recommend? Thanks in advance!

You have to research resorts...Only you & your fiancé know what you are looking for. So we can't help with that. Once you pick a location, there are MANY great ideas and resources- (templates) on this site.

 

Good Luck!

Welcome and Congrats!!   I'm not much help with your desired location but you can find lots of  info on here.  Use the search bar to find things about specific resorts or the general area.  When you are ready to start looking into details I am sure you will have no problem finding a lot of very useful information (if for some reason you can't don't hesitate to just ask!!)

Congrats!!!  As the other ladies have said...you will find a wealth of information on this site.  Look at the resort reviews and at tripadvisor.  Those will help you to narrow down the resorts that will fit your vison and needs.

 

Good Luck and happy planning!

Yay how exciting! I can tell you that I had an amazing time and all of my guests loved the Bahia Principe Esmeralda Don Pablo Luxury Collection resort. It was incredible. I've heard many amazing things about hard rock but one of the comments a lot of people make about that resort is it is very Americanized (and very pricey). The Bahia Principe Resorts are affordable and incredible so take a look and see what you think! There is a lot to consider so like others said only you will pick the best one for your taste!

My #1 tip is think about your wedding day and what you want it to look like. I hated the idea of a million people on the beach while the ceremony was happening or to be hurdled around as there were 3 other weddings that day.... Which is why I choose the Esmeralda. It's right beside a very good restaurant called Kukua that has wedding packages and much more privacy! Look it up for more info :)

 

Goodluck and don't forget to gave fun!

HI,

Welcome to this site. I am getting married in Punta Cana April 17, 2015. We chose the Melia Caribe Tropical. Reason being is because it has an adult only section as well, which is what my fiancé and myself wanted. We first looked into Adults only and came to realize that some family members couldn't go if they couldn't take their kids with them. So we tried to make everyone happy by going to a family friendly resort and then my FI and I can get what we want by having an adult only section. So if that's kind of what you are looking for you can look at this hotel. The grounds look very beautiful as well. Check it out on trip advisor and perhaps add it to your list of resorts to research.

 

Happy Planning and let us know how it goes.

    • 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.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
