My fiance and I stayed at the Grand Palladium Resort and Casino in Punta Cana in July 2008.  It was AMAZING there!! I would go back in a heartbeat. The weather was incredible. The water is like bath water.  The sand is white and soft and they keep the beaches very clean. The staff is also wonderful. They are so friendly. They do speak very little english but they do their best to accomodate.  The food was also great.  They have all kinds of different types of food at the buffet every night and there are also 5 different restaurants to choose from that offer different types of food.  Also, the drinks are great too, and they have bars located all over the resort. The best ones are the bars on the beach πŸ™‚  The rooms are also very nice and the housekeepers clean them every day for you. I honestly have no complaints about this resort. It was wonderful.  

 

Here are some pictures of the resort:

  • Wedding: November 2020 - Majestic Colonial Resort, Punta Cana

I can’t believe I somehow missed this thread! LOL 

Punta Cana is AMAZING no matter where you go. I was seriously so, so impressed with the Majestic Colonial too, as were ALL of our guests and they’ve all traveled a lot. We took a tour of the Majestic Elegance during our honeymoon and ate there too and it is so gorgeous.

I’m so jealous of all of you… I wanna go back!

P.S. For those of you who are getting married at the Majestic, check out the Facebook group for Majestic Colonial brides!! It’s awesome.

I can’t believe I missed this post as well!  We honeymooned in Punta Cana in June of 08 (the 22-30) and it was increadible!  The Majestic looks like it will be beautiful!  We actually stayed at the Excellence and enjoyed every second of it!  Since you already booked your resort, I won’t rant and rave about ours.  But I will say that if you are looking for an adventurous excursion to do, you MUST do the zipline tour!  I will post pics so you can see how breathtaking the actual country is (outside of the resort areas).  Mind you, it is a third world country, but the actual land itself is stunning!  Beware of rain on your trip.  It is monsoon season there, so you may run into a thunderstorm or two.  But it won’t completely ruin your trip.  The sun will be out again in no time!  ENJOY EVERY SECOND!

Somebody I know stayed at the Princess Barcelona (I think…"princess" was definitely in the name) and it was quite affordable! I think when I priced them they were about 2K or 2500.

For those of you that have already been, did you change over your currency once you got there or did you find that american money was accepted? We are staying at an all inclusive but I want to be sure that I can tip people and pay for those extras that our resort offers.

I havent been yet (going the end of June), but my FI’s family went there before and were able to tip with US dollars and that they preferred that more.

My Fiance and I went to the Bahia Principe resort in Punta Cana back in November where he prosed to me on the beach at night! It was beautiful! I loved the food, mind you I am not picky.

People in general, wherever you go are never happy. We both spoke to people on the resort and in the airports and they always had something to complain about. We had a wonderful experience. The scenery was gorgeous, the employees were really nice, and the service was great.

Yay!  I missed this post the first time around, too.  We are going for two weeks and staying at the Majestic Elegance, in October.  I can’t wait!  There are several other knotties from my area who are going in June, so I will get a first-hand report.  πŸ™‚  I am more excited for the Honeymoon than for the wedding.

  • Wedding: August 2009

Fiance and I vacationed in Punta Cana in August of 2007…before I officially acknowledged him as my boyfriend! LOL. We stayed at Occidental Grand…but I think the hotels there change names every few years or so for some reason. The hotel was so-so. But our beach was BY FAR the best on the island. We walked up and down in both directions and ours was the cleanest, largest, and best water. No matter where you go, you’ll enjoy it. We were there during a hurricane & had a blast!

TIP #1: when you head down (or up) the beach to the little fishing village, the vendors will mob you. if you walk in the edge of the water, they’ll leave you alone–they don’t want to mess up their fancy shoes!

TIP #2: definitely try the mamajuana. it’s a drink (and it’s legal) made from a native root, mixed with sugar cane, rum, and wine. it’s delicious. and it’s an aphrodisiace…not that you’ll need it on your honeymoon!!

American money is accepted there (at least it was at the Grand Palladium) it makes for an easy trip. No currency exchange needed.
