Pros and cons to a beach reception

We'll probably go with an indoors reception, but just want to get some feedback first.
How was your beach reception? Give me the good and the bad. Thanks!

I can't think of any cons, maybe we were lucky but it was perfect. Full moon, great weather, bonfire. When it got dark we even had neon blue plankton decorating the ocean and washing up on shore! I wouldn't have traded the beach reception for anything! If you're indoors you may as well be in your hometown....well not exactly, but the beach is spectacular in RM, no?

1. (Most important for us) We wanted a private reception. I know that some places have areas that can be/are private (especially Las Caletas) but we really didn't want people watching us on the beach in their bathing suits or being the nightly entertainment as they looked down at us from their rooms. We are expecting 100 people so we would have needed a lot of space.
2. We will be dancing and partying all night so we wanted it to be comfortable and didn't want people to be too hot.
Many people (including myself) have said, why have a reception inside when you could just save money and stay at home. The idea of a destination wedding for us was to spend a week or long weekend with our closest family and friends. Everyone will have plenty of time at the beach. But after the church ceremony, we are having a sand ceremony to make it different than just being at home. Hopefully it will be a great experience for everyone!
