Resorts Without Free Wi-Fi?

Recommended Posts

On our wedding website and in wedding newsletter we are sending two weeks before we go we suggest downloading "Viber" app which gives free texts and calls without having to get international plan....just wifi. The week's package is cheaper than a month of international calling plan. Also, each wifi plan at hotel you can add up to five devices so people are pairing together to split.

From what I've read at our resort it's one device only. So the reviews warn to pick the device you plan to use most.

Yea I'm def planning on a welcome party! We're planning on getting there on the Wednesday and our wedding is Saturday. So I have to see when everyone will be arriving. I know one of our friends has the ability to call internationally with his T-Mobile plan, so maybe we'll plan to utilize whoever has phones that work and have them relay messages to the others also. Ideally all of our rooms will be near each other so we can just knock on doors! Lol. I'm trying not to stress but then when I thought about it I was like crap how am I going to get a hold of everyone! You'd think all all-inclusives included free wifi

I think it will work out :)

I'm opposite you -- I arrive Saturday and marry Wednesday. Initially we arrived Sunday but they changed our flights. It's more than half way thru but what can I do :)

At my best friend's destination wedding we all brought walkie talkies! They worked amazing and I intend on telling my guests to bring some if they have :)

We did this too last time when we went with my family. The resort was really small but they came in super handy.

@@TinkerSofi and @@Csonnel - how many walkie talkies did you/they have? Did everyone have one (one per room anyway)? I'm intrigued by the idea, but I would think that would be a lot of walkie talkies to bring.

We had 2 walkie talkies and 5 people (3 rooms) but we managed. They were very helpful but I'm not sure how it would work with so many. Maybe if there are 4 people who are always together give them once, etc. it can be expensive. I think we paid $70 for 2

    • 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.
