Hi everyone...

 

So....Jasmin has finally emailed me back (after 6 weeks!!) and I am confused and not happy with what she has told me....

 

In one of the first emails she sent me she gave me a quote for the poolside party which was $1,070 for 40 people including special bar and DJ.....I presumed (stupidly) that she had quoted me for 40 people as I had said that we may have between 30-40 people attending....Anyway I have gone ahead and booked DJ Bijan after reading reviews and had emailed her again asking for a quote without the resort DJ and for 25 Adults & 6 Children as we haven't got as many people coming now as first thought. She has replied back stating that the poolside reception is a package price of $1,070 and is not per person??? ( We get married 24th October 2012 if that makes a difference? - not sure if its recently changed??)

 

Did anyone else have this before stating which price bar they wanted and getting the price pp per hour for that?

 

Thanks

 

Nic.x

Hi ladies - question for past brides who have organized a night to CocoBongo's. Did you guys buy your tickets through the resort/tour operator? If so..do you remember how much it was for ALL-inclusive? (Transportation to and from CocoBongo & open bar/bypass line etc)

I want to organize the night but I dont know how to go about getting tickets - do we do it way ahead of time? or do I tell my guests they're to buy their own in advance?
or can we do it the day of through the hotel?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks

Sunshine, We went to Coco Bongo and it was so much fun! There's Coco bongo reps everywhere by the pool and lobby. We bought ours a couple days before. There's 2 packages.... 1) is VIP (lower level, better view of stage, table and seats) 2) regular pass (higher level, no seats, decent) We had 21 people and went with the regular pass. If there is only a small group going then I would go with VIP. When we first talked to the coco bongo rep he quoted us $65 per person..... Then we talked him down to $60 plus bride and groom free entrance. I thought that was a good deal, until our best man talked to our wedding coordinator and got $50 per person. So I would probably wait and ask your wedding coordinator during your sit down meeting. It really depends on how many ppl are going to coco bongo.

How far in advance did you book?  How many people were in your party?

Thank you! :)

There's no Coco Bongo on Sundays! We went on a Wednesday and it was still packed!! Booked 2 days in advance :). It might be easier to do all the bookings when your there.... Just make sure you negotiate ;)

Oh! Good to know!

So if some people want to do the GOLD service - and some dont - does that mean you're basically separated the whole night?

Oh! And for the gold member - its $120/$110 per person right? Not $120/$110 for one group?
Jazmin's english isn't the best - and it says 'per groups' so I'm not sure...huh.gif

    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
