Bluebay Grand Esmeralda Wedding

Recommended Posts



I am starting to plan my destination wedding for April 2017 I have been searching for a nice yet reasonable price for my guests.

After my sister and I have done a lot of research we came across Blue Bay Grand Esmeralda in the Riviera Mayan. 

I am wondering if any brides out there can give me any feedback/tips/pictures or any helpful resources that will help with my planning.



or even if any brides who had destination weddings in the Riviera Mayan any feedback or suggestions would be very useful :) 


Thank you!

@@Amandasequeira Congrats on your engagement and welcome to BDW. There's lot of great info here. Make sure to search for planning threads and reviews of your resort. Have you booked there, or still making your decision?


I stayed at BB Grand Esmerelda in April 2015. Just as a regular guest, not related to a wedding. If you want any details, please let me know.

@Amandasequeira  Congrats and welcome to the site! @@vancouverpetunia is totally right - there is a ton of information here that is sure to help you through your planning journey and the ladies here are more than willing to share!


I found one thread that you can read through, but also do a search up top by typing in the resort name and you can see other things that come up. Definitely do some reading. A lot of times questions that the brides have are already answered somewhere within a thread, and you will likely also see other details that will help you out.




Do you have a travel agent that you're working with? If not, the owners of this site are destination wedding specialists. You can contact them through the site. I know they would be more than happy to help you with things that are important to you as well as working with your price point and the price point for your guests. Sometimes too there are perks available that you might not otherwise get if you aren't working with a destination wedding specialist.


Good luck and happy planning!

    • 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.
