Yes, we had the semi-private, free reception at Mammee Bay & then rented the disco for the "dancing" part of the reception. It all went very well!!! Dinner at Mammee Bay was excellent. None of my guests complained at all about moving to the disco after dinner. But keep in mind that the disco & Mammee Bay are not far away from each other at all. It's literally like right around the corner from each other so its not like my guests had far to go. It was also great to have our private time at the disco, for 2 hours, before it opened up to public. During those 2 hours, we had our first dance, bouquet/garter toss & we gave our speeches there as well.

If you did the private reception at the Plantation & then moved to the disco, that walk is a little farther but don't get me wrong, its still not an unreasonable distance and I don't think your guests would complain too much. Afterall, its a walk that they will probably do a few times while staying at the resort anyway!

I think that the Plantation is very nice & conveinent if you want to have your reception in one place. For us, the main reason we chose Mammee Bay over the Plantation was because of the $ we saved. Even though Mammee Bay is "semi-private", it totally felt like we were the only group there.
All in all, if I had it to do over again, I would do it the same way & wouldn't change a thing. Hope this helps!
And thanks for the compliments on the pictures!

well we are actaully getting married at RIU Negril. i have been 2 other RIU resorts before, but not to this particular one. in the others, the club was not a far walk at all from the restaurants. i'm hoing it's the same situation. i guess i have 2 talk 2 my FI and see what he wants to do. although he'll just pick whatever is cheaper! i don't think he realizes that we are spending a lot less money then we would have if we decided 2 do everything @ home! so frustrating!! (that was my little venting part..LOL)
