Majestic Dining Question (and a couple others..)

Does anyone know what the reservation policy is at the Majestic Elegance and Colonial? Also if you are limited to how many ala cartes you may eat at during your stay?

Also how is the beach?

And...I can find availability through other sites for next spring but I keep trying different dates on their site and none of them are available. Has anyone else experienced this? I just don't want any of our guests to have trouble booking (wedding, big group not all booking at once). I've been leaning towards the Barcelo Bavaro properties but I've heard alot of good things about the Majestics also.

There are two ala cartes that require reservations at the Colonial, the French and Japanese (show table).

There is no limit on the number of times you can eat in a ala carte

We have booked for February and not had any issues. However, I always use a travel agent (for many reasons)

I love the beach at the Colonial...

It is on Bavaro Beach right?

Strictly speaking the Majestics are located on Arena Gorda Beach. Bavaro Beach is several miles south.

Here's a map of the area referred to as Punta Cana.

Here's a bit bigger version of the map. I've been told by people who live there that Bavaro Beach runs from around Now Larimar to just south of Barcelo Bavaro. There are a half dozen or so resorts on Bavaro Beach.

Have been to Barcelo Bavaro and a couple others up to ME... it's all nice... It starts to get rough towards the Hard Rock. ME and M C are 2 seperate resorts. They will let you use both for weddings ... some of the party may get bumped to the other because of over booking... it happens. You never posted any site MHeath

You do realise that the Colonial and the Elegance are two seperate resorts and staying at one does not give you access to the other. It would probably be Ok for the wedding itself but not for dining together otherwise or hanging out at the pools or beach!

Yes, I haven't really figured out which one I would book at if I did, thats why I was asking about both.

At the ME you make reservations that morning at the front desk, or at one of the Club lounges (if you are staying in club level) the butlers will sometimes help with this too. Make your res early as they fill up, You only need reservations for the french, and the japenese (hibachi only, sushi is no res) as OBX said. No limit. You can order multiple entrees if you want as well. We ordered 3 entrees for the two of us, everytime. We wanted to try everything :)

You may not be able to book for Spring 2014, as it seems most of the travel sites only let you book 10 months, or so, in advance. For example, I had to wait until early April to book our Feb/March 2014 stay.

ME was perfect for us, but you will have a blast at whatever resort you pick. DR is great!If you pick the ME, look into the beach dinner, it was amazing. It is included in honeymoon package and such, but is worth any extra cost if you have to pay.
