I was really interested in the beach reception but then we got the cost and now I am really struggling to decide if it is reasonable. We are getting married at the Riu Palace Punta Cana next May and they are quoting us $80/person with at least 50 adult guest attending (so at least $4000). We will already be paying $2600 for the wedding package which includes a free reception at the steak house if you don't want a DJ or a private reception.
I am curious what other resorts in Punta Cana are charging for private receptions as I am considering changing resorts if they are much cheaper. I feel that $80/person is a lot for a buffet that us and our guests are already paying for.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

So for us we are thinking of getting the Ultimate package includes ceremony, flowers, some pictures, massages and gold cocktail hour and dinner for up to 20 people ( I think) for about $2600 and then we'll have to pay something like $34/person for everyone over 20 for the cocktail & dinner.
It's my understanding that we get to chose from various private locations at the resort for the cocktail hour & dinner. We are most likely not paying a DJ but brining an Ipod with all the music we want.
hope that helps a bit.

What is the Ipod option, because I would rather bring my ipod than pay $300 for a DJ that I will provide all the music to anyway.
I am getting frustrated with the resort we chose as they can't seem to answer any of my questions. We were looking at the dreams resort but we read some questionable reviews on it...but it seems like a lot of people are going there so we may change our minds. Does the $2600 include the beach reception? Because our $2600 includes a restaurant reception with food and drinks for 2 hours but I wanted to have music so we are forced into a private reception.
