I'm confused about the poolside cocktail party - I emailed Eugenia and asked about having the party with national drinks only. She asked if we wanted the $41/person option - is that the cost? I thought it was only something like $5/person.

She also quoted me $70/hour to rent the speakers for an iPod.

Thanks!

Erin

$41 a person sounds like the $36 for the meal and the $5 for the drinks... but that seems slightly odd to me that she'd put it that way. 

 

I'd maybe respond with what kind of drinks you were looking for.

Hello,

When I booked Eugenia emailed me the following:

 

 A private cocktail after the dinner beside the pool until 11:00 pm, as it is private it will have the following cost depending of the Open Bar you want:

National Bar:        
Beer, Rum, Vodka, Tequila, Cocktails, Gin, Whisky        

 $17 USD per person for the first hour  

extra hour: $12 USD per person

International Bar:        
Beer, Tequila, Rum, Vodka , Whisky, Cocktails, Gin, International brands wine of the house and sprkling wine                                              

$24 USD per person for the first hour 

extra hour: $18 USD per person

Special Cocktails:
Beer, Piña Colada Cocktail, Margarita Cocktail & Sparkling Wine                                                  

$5 USD per person for the first hour
extra hour: $3 USD per person 


 So my guess is that Eugina is assuming you are having a cocktail party with the National Bar for 3 hours after your dinner
 

$17.00 for the first hour
$12.00 for the second hour

$12.00 for the third hour

 

Equaling a total of $41.00 per person for all three hours of the cocktail party 
 

Hope this helps J

Now that you mentioned, I have not heard from her in 3 weeks myself...off topic, but I noticed your wedding date is October 17th, I'm getting married on the 12th and also staying at Coba! When do you arrive at the resort? Perhaps we will cross paths.

This is exactly how she quoted us for the bar (we did the special cocktails so it was $11 (5+3+3) per person. But here is something important... DO NOT pay more for the different bars. Just pay for the Special Cocktails. You will get everything anyway. We had people ordering all sorts of shots... tequila, whiskey, rum, you name it, and we only payed for the very lowest. Don't waste you money.!

Hi girls

 

I got back this morning ....I'm sorry, but I am going to write a review in the next few days. As there is 6 hours time difference....I am a lil all over the place....with tiredness ...being in UK......... Girls I want you to know....

 

   I panicked as no one was E mailing me back.....I was stressed....There really is no need to. I had Maria Ferandez I met with her the day after I arrived and she totally exceeded what I had told her I wanted. I cried as everything was perfect,,,,beyond any expectation. These are experts and they helped me even more than I asked her.....What a lovely lady. You ladies are going to love it xxxx

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
