Westin PV or Dreams PV?????

Recommended Posts

erika these 2 are probably the best choices in PV...

 

dreams is a little farther from the action but in such a beautiful spot...you really have to figure out what is best for your group...are they younger and more prone to party? or older/family so better to be in a private spot with nice beach?

From the looks of it, I think we're going to go with the Westin. My guest all vary from young to old. Hope everything works out at the Westin.

 

I'll keep you girls posted!

 

Hope you all are having a great weekend!

Erika - I don't think you can go wrong with either of these places. Are you planning on doing any site visits before the wedding? I haven't decided yet if I will.

This summer we toured both Dreams Puerto Vallarta and The Westin Resort & Spa Puerto Vallarta looking for the best places to get married in the area. Here are some brief thoughts about the two resorts.

 

The Westin is located in the Marina Vallarta (northern part of the city). Dreams is located a few minutes south of the city on your way to Mismaloya. Being outside of the city, Dreams is more secluded. These two resorts are very different. Dreams is an affordable family all-inclusive resort, the Westin is a luxurious, upscale European Plan hotel. If you wanted to get an all-inclusive that was on par with the Westin, you would have to go someplace like the Grand Velas.

 

1. Dreams Puerto Vallarta Benefits

- Secluded beach (no beach vendors)

- Lively

- Always 90% full, never boring or empty

- Excellent value, including wedding packages (free weddings!)

- Offers catered beach receptions with dinner & dancing

- Great for families

- Plenty of activities (non-motorized watersports, water trampoline, movies on the beach, theme nights, etc.)

 

If you want more information about Dreams Puerto Vallarta, you can find complete wedding information and wedding photos at http://www.strayweddings.com/find_re...hp?resort_id=3

 

2. Westin Resort & Spa Puerto Vallarta Benefits

- Very high-class resort

- Excellent wedding services (excellent photographers, flowers, cakes, etc.)

- They will fully-customize your wedding. Send them pictures of your bouquet or cake and they will match it exactly.

- Beautiful grounds

- Great outdoor ceremony & reception sites, which can accommodate a dinner and dance by the sea.

- Quiet and peaceful ambience

 

I have too much to say for one posting so if you have specific questions I will try to answer them.

Thanks

well if you are getting married at the westin you may not need to hire an outside coord and that will save you some $$. they have a onsite WC. just see how you do with the onsite WC and you can compare prices etc. with the other ones on this baord (amy and ann will be up and running by then)

I don't think it's too risky - not everyone does a site visit. And I think with those 2 resorts, you can't go wrong. I don't know if I will be able to do a site visit or not. I think it would be nice just to set my mind at ease, but I don't think it's necessary. And my sister made a good point the other day - she said "wouldn't that kind of ruin the fun, to see it all before it's your day?" While I don't think it will ruin anything, I do think it will be fun for it to be "new" to us when we get down there. And we plan on going down at least a couple days before the wedding to get a feel for the place.

Also, a friend is going to PV in Jan. - if you have any special requests, please ask! She's happy to help ...

just jumping in now...a friend of mine (who is an event planner) got married at the Westin a couple years ago. She's putting info together for me and I'll pass along when I get it. We haven't gone done for a visit yet, but plan to in January and the Westin is our #1 choice (from the laptop screen, at least). We're not getting married until Jan 08, but we're in need of a vacay and want to set our date sooner than later. I will be happy to share what we dig up when we're down there.

 

That said, I wouldn't be freaked out without a scouting trip...there are so many resources online!
