Free or cheap things

Recommended Posts

I think we have all realized by now that if you keep asking questions there are free things and cheap ways to go about planning. I have seen posts on several sites, but thought we could all share ways we are saving money at the resort and ways to get around all the high prices.

 

Anyone have some to share?

When I asked about a private reception, Chandlyn sent me 3 menus that cost $25, $35 or $45. After asking repeatedly if there was an "included" menu, I found out that there was. This was the biggest money saver for me!!!

 

Great thread...I'd love to hear more!

This is true. I didn't even know that is was gonna be there. Till I saw him when I walked down the aisle. Noone in my party even drinks. Even though they did drink that b/c they thought there was no rum in it. Though I could tell there was. I wish I had known and I would of asked for NA.

I'm glad I read this too. We are all staying at an AI and for the WD, I was getting $25-35 per person for quotes. I'm going to ask if there is an "included" menu because I couldn't bring myself to pay that money when everyone has already paid the resort for the meals.

 

Great tip!

    • 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.
