Let's Talk About Groupon



Many of you may remember me asking for travel recommendations earlier this year.  We wanted to celebrate our 25th year of marriage with our kids.  Our anniversary is in Sept. but since that is hurricane season in the Caribbean, we decided to go in April.  After extensive research, I chose an All-Inclusive Resort Deal through Groupon.

Now, I have used Groupon several times for goods, and deals on amusement parks, restaurants and stuff like that.  But never, had I done an actual travel deal with them.  I did plenty of research, not only on Groupon, but also the agency offering the deal and the resort itself.  Some of the ones I looked at, were marked off my list pretty fast due to agency or resort reviews.  However, one was standing out above the rest and I finally decided to take the plunge.  I made the Groupon purchase and within a couple of days, called the travel agency.  I felt so much better after I talked to them and had all of our reservations and confirmations.  :)


If I'm totally honest with you, I was still scared though - wondering if there would be any snags or disappointments. I wanted everyone to have a fabulous time! In all my research, I did see some bad reviews of the resort. It did really stand out among the others, but it didn't receive a perfect 5 star rating, so I still harbored some fear. But,as I read reviews and looked at guest photos, I couldn't help but think how some people will always find something to complain about! Because the complaints seemed really minor, I felt pretty confident about my choice, I mean, we aren't complainers, but I still wanted fantastic not fair! :)

Let me tell you, I was FANTASTIC!!  Through Groupon, we booked the All-Inclusive Resort package to The Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus in Bayahibe with Vacation Express.  Vacation Express did an amazing job of making sure we loved our vacation and the Hacienda staff went above and beyond anything I could have asked for!








The resort was absolutely gorgeous!!  From the elaborate architecture, to the fun wildlife, to the fabulous foliage and hysterically funny entertainment - I (we) loved it ALL!!

  I booked excursions online, before we left and I highly recommend that as well. If you are interested in more info about who we used and what trips we experienced, I will be happy to provide that information.  



I could talk about this all day and post way to many photos (I believe I uploaded nearly 300 to Facebook - yikes), but I will reign it in.  LOL  All in all, you can see that I highly recommend  Groupon, Vacation Express and The Iberostar Hacienda Dominicus Resort if you are in the market for an amazing trip!

Hurry - RUN to the $5 Secret Sale at DaySpring!  I'm thinking Christmas.  :)
