In Topic: Honeymoon in Punta Cana

13 May 2011 - 12:14 PM


Yes, it was very nice... beautiful, but very small and quiet also.  We were exhausted from our wedding week and enjoyed the relaxing time, but if you like to go to the disco and party, this is not the place.  Almost all of the guests were couples, and many of them 50+. 

 

The restaurants were great and the beach was amazing.  They had a butler coming out quite often to serve drinks on the beach, and also a guy walking around with fresh, cold fruit!

 

If you want to just be into yourselves and relax on the beach, this place is great.  Very quiet and they pamper you like crazy.  Might be a nice break if you have a busy wedding week.

 

Also, you can visit the other Iberostar hotels next door if you get bored.  We had a nice time, but I don't think we'd ever go back -- not worth the money really.  I actually enjoyed the Majestic more.

Hmmm, they told me $90 for vendors and $50 for guests.  I don't think it would have raised that much!  :)

You can find some decent stuff at Stars -- check around though, because each location seems to have different stuff.

Thanks :)

Yes, the updo is $80, but the bride gets 10% off.  You can charge it to your room, if you want.  But don't forget to bring a little cash for the tip!

Everyone at this hotel really goes out of their way to make you feel special.  Just tell them that you are 'la novia' and they will treat you like a princess all week!  Also, the atmosphere was great for a group -- the resort is large enough for people to have some alone time if they wanted to, but not so big that you couldn't find people.  The beach was amazing, and the rooms were large and clean.

 

The staff really know what they're doing here -- don't worry, you'll be in good hands :)
