Thanks in advance! I think I have a few answers to some of this - and will help other girls, but I want to "top up" these answers for informed decision making!
You can have free Reception dinner at Fuentes or El cocotal. They have specific menu to choose from depending on the night. They will provide menu choices for this. You have your choice of 2 entres and then the guest choose one of them.
I only know a few options but may be for smaller groups. Your choices are Tucanes, Health Bar, Beach (for 30 or more) and Gaviotos. There are a few more.
For private events they have minimum requirement of amount of guests on each selection. Like buffets is for more that 40 people and others are 16 guests. For the entre menu's you have to pick 3 choices. Ex. entre, salad, desert, soup, or appetizer. Then they are all priced seperately. On the average probably $50 pp
Private dinner receptions are 4 hrs. Cocktail parties are 2 hrs.
For the ceremony we are having ours at Gazebo 55. Which is on the beach & more private. They have a white gazebo on the beach and you can do in their church. I can send you all the choices if you want to send me your email
