My husband and I were married on May 17, 2014 at the Paradisus Punta Cana resort. Having a destination wedding was the absolute best choice and having it here was amazing. When our group of 75 showed up on Wed-Thursday we found out they upgraded the whole group(yes the whole group, 75 of us!!) to the Reserve. We were completely shocked. It was such an awesome surprise. Our room was awesome and had a great view of the pool!! The Reserve was perfect for all of us because we all could find each other easy! The bartenders at the pool bar ( shout to Rodolfo- you were the best!) were friendly and fun and make some great drinks. The Buffett was okay. We totally recommend Vento! We didn't get a chance to really eat at a lot of restaurants because of our welcome party, rehearsal dinner and wedding nights had us booked. Make sure you book your reservations when you get there the first day. They fill up fast and won't let you eat without a reservation. We didn't try Passion (the one that costs money) but our guests did and raved about it! The overall appearance of the resort is amazing. The main hotel lobby is awesome and the grounds were gorgeous. Our wedding coordinator was Beatrice and she was such a blessing! She was so responsive and genuine. She did whatever she could to make our day special. She was able to throw together a welcome Party with 7 hours notice and it was perfect. We had the rehearsal dinner at Gabi Beach. That bar has an awesome view! The lit up trees and beach right there was so nice, especially with the breeze. Again it was a Buffett and was decent. Our wedding day was perfect. Perfect weather (6pm ceremony on the beach) and gorgeous cocktail hour (again on the beach). The reception looked awesome (Caney ballroom). I explained to Beatrice how I wanted it and it looked exactly how I imagined! The food wasn't great (Caribbean Buffett menu) but the DJ was awesome and the crowd was always dancing. One thing that was negative was that they did not have the AC on until people showed up at the ballroom. It was so hot and hard to cool down with 75 of us in there. If you have your reception in there make sure the AC is on a hour (at least) before any guest steps foot inside. The day was unforgettable and I am truly amazed on how smooth it went. I can't thank Beatrice enough- thank you thank you thank you!!!!! Oh and check out the main pool behind Gabi Beach- it's pretty cool. And thank god for the shuttles- the resort is so huge you need to use them If you are at the Reserve! We will definitely be coming back to the Reserve at the Paradisus Punta Cana!
