superior resorts

Superior Resorts are properties that offer a wide range of services and activities, giving lots of choice in restaurants and bars as well as regular daytime and evening entertainment.  Often located in a prime setting, superior resorts may offer a selection of different styles of accommodations, from simple hotel rooms to large suites, and may have specific sections dedicated to families or adults-only. 

Usually, resorts that would be considered in the 4.5-5* range would be a superior property, a good choice for groups wishing a higher level of service or amenities, with features catering to all demographics. 

While we will always match your destination recommendations to your specific needs, take a look at some of the sample venues below!

Travel Costs
Travel costs will range based on the seasonality.  Lowest rates, excluding hurricane season, are often found in November and early December. Good winter pricing can be found in January & April, with the highest rates occuring over holidays (ie. Christmas, New Years, March Break) as well as the peak winter month of February. 

Getting Married in the Dominican Republic

The Requirements
Legal weddings in the Dominican Republic do require additional paperwork. As well, please note there is often just one judge in each district, so legal weddings do book up quicker than symbolic. 

Canadian Nationals will need to provide the following for a legal wedding:

• Birth Certificate of the bride and groom
• Document of single unmarried status (divorce or widow(er) certificate. Ten months must have elapsed since the date of the last divorce.
• A photocopy of the passport of the bride and groom .
• Photocopies of the passports of the witnesses who are not family members.
• Certificate of Single Status for each of the parties.
• All documents must be authenticated by the couples’ nearest Dominican Consulate before they arrive in the country.
• All documents must be legally translated into Spanish in such consulate.

Translations are $40 USD per page, and legalization is currently $100 USD per page.  Documentation cost for the DR for couples not previously married is approximately $560 USD.

Wedding Packages

Majestic Resorts offer legal, symbolic and Catholic wedding options.  The wedding package includes all the basics like ceremony, bouquet, cake and semi-private dinner for up to 60 guests, for a very affordable cost. 

There are multiple options available to personalize your event, from adding decor packages, a completely private dinner reception, or just a private after party reception with in-house DJ. 

Majestic offers a free wedding, and the good news here is that the free wedding offers the same package inclusions.
