Has anyone ever been? We are sincerely thinking of booking our honeymoon here, leaving August 9th for 11 days. I know there is chance of bad weather, but I’ve found that there is a possibility everywhere we’re looking. This place looks like everything we’re hoping, it’s all inclusive and the reviews are fabulous for the most part. Anyone have any advice or suggestions before we book?

I have been researching like CRAZY! I thought I finally decided on Dreams Punta Cana, but now that you mention the Majestic, that looks really great too! How did you pick between the Colonial or Elegance?? The reviews do look good.
So, I guess I would like to know how you narrowed down your choice? Honestly, b/c it’s soooooo hard! LOL
We will be going in mid-October also in hurricane system. But i’m determined to go to the Caribbean. Do you plan on buying trip insurance? Sorry for all of the questions 🙂

I just wrote you…I haven’t been here since yesterday. I ended up choosing the Majestic Elegance because I liked that it is adult only and it just seems like a dream destination. We asked for the honeymoon package as well. I did end up buying trip insurance, we feel way more comfortable just having that back up.
It was really hard to narrow down the choices, but we love where this resort is located. It looks gorgeous and it’s practically new, which excites me, I’m not sure why. I love that the only “bad” things people could say was they didnt like the food. Eat elsewhere:) We’re so excited, it’s official and I cannot wait!

Hi!! So yeah all day today i did more and more research between ME and Dreams until I decided on ME. I also liked it b/c it was still pretty new and just had more of a luxorious look. The pictures are amazing and most all of the reviews are fantastic.
One thing I need to mention is that it is not adults only. They do have a section that you can book called the Elegance Club which lets you have access to separate bars, pool, rooms that are strictly adults only. Is that what you are doing? We decided against it b/c it was an extra $400 and i didn’t consider that too important. Actually, I’m hoping maybe they’ll upgrade me haha!! I got an amazing deal through Orbitz though and am paying less than $2500 for 1 week!
It’s funny you mention the “bad” food. I read a lot of reviews about it. My Travel Agent told me something very handy. She said every morning to take one of those chewable Pepto Bismol pills. It really helps apparently! She travels all over the place and a pharmacist recommended it to her. Sounds good to me!
We are going October 11-18. I cannot wait! I think we made a great choice 🙂

We are heading to the Majestic Elegance in Oct as well. It looks amazing…just a little worried about it being hurricane season. Most reviews I read were great…but I did read a few on the food being bad…but that is good advice about taking pepto every AM!
Regarless it should be an amazing time!!!

I went to the Majestic Colonial on July 4th weekend (it’s next door to the Elegance, slighty cheaper, but run by the same people) and it was WONDERFUL!
The food was delicious!
Here’s my review of it: http://irunyourun.wordpress.com/2010/07/08/and-im-back/
(I had stomach issues on my last day there, but I ate way too much and mixed way too many types of food. I don’t blame it on the resort, I always get that when I’m in a different country trying a bit of everything.)

I am heading for Punta Cana in November, and have been dying to tour that resort.
The Paradisus in Punta Cana is very nice, as is the new Zoetry resort. Those may be some good options as well.

I know these posts were from a while ago, but can anyone tell me how they liked ME? Was the honeymoon package good?
